Howe happy Newcastle alive in Carabao Cup: It's exciting

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe is delighted to still be in the Carabao Cup after their penalty shootout win against Crystal Palace.

Toon goalkeeper Nick Pope was the hero after normal time had finished 0-0.

Howe said, “It’s exciting for everyone at the end, although not good for our health, but happy to get through.

“We know we can play much better than that but there are reasons, many of those playing haven’t had much gametime.

“Credit to Palace they defended deep and made it difficult.

“We wanted to win to keep that momentum and we want to go as far as we can in the cup.”
