(Video) Super save from Rob Elliot to keep out Diouf’s effort during Newcastle’s 2-1 win v Stoke

Heroic save from the Newcastle stopper

Newcastle recorded their third win on the trot, beating Stoke City 2-1, thanks to some world class reflexes from their goalkeeper.

The Magpies led through Christian Atsu’s first half strike only to be pegged back by Stoke. With the contest poised at 1-1, Xherdan Shaqiri delivered in a wicked cross towards the unmarked Diouf.

The former Manchester United forward duly obliged with a cracking header, only to be denied by a strong right hand from Rob Elliot.

The Irish international stretched to parry away what looked to be certain goal by the away side. In the end it proved to be an extremely crucial moment as Newcastle collected all three points against the Potters.
