Newcastle 1 Swansea 1: Watch highlights as substitute Joselu equalises with his first touch of the game to pile the pressure on struggling Swans

RAFA BENITEZ’S substitution proved Jos the job as Newcastle salvaged a point against Swansea.

New Swans boss Carlos Carvalhal was eyeing his fourth straight win against the Toon when Jordan Ayew headed the visitors in front on the hour.

But Spanish striker Joselu spared Benitez’s blushes when he equalised just four minutes after coming off the bench.

Newcastle, though, will still be disappointed to only draw against the Premier League’s basement boys.

And they have now not claimed victory at St James’ Park for seven league games – their worst winless run here since they were relegated nine years ago.

For the Swans, this was a fourth point out of a possible nine since ex-Sheffield Wednesday boss Carvalhal took charge.

But they will feel hard done by as they should have had a first-half penalty when Newcastle’s Mo Diame, who would then have been sent off, handballed in the box.

The Toon, whose starting XI all played for them in the Championship last season, had a hatful of chances early on.
