A sleepy start to the match was brought to life when Salomon Rondon had a go from 30 yards that bounced off the top of the cross bar.
That unfortunately was not a harbinger of what was the come, and the match crawled through the first half hour.
Newcastle keeper Karl Darlow rescued a looping header from Hal Robson-Kanu from the goal line.

Newcastle threatened with an early corner kick, but Ciaran Clark couldn’t turn Matt Ritchie‘s service on frame. A free kick followed, but was poorly executed.
The hosts went up 2-0 in the 56th minute through Field, who raced to the back post to meet typical service from crossing wizard Matty Phillips.
The Magpies tried to answer off a pair of corners, and this time Clark headed Ritchie’s corner home. It was 2-1 in the 59th.
Darlow stopped a Robson-Kanu shot four minutes later. At the other end, Ayoze Perez turned and fired and Foster collected the ball in the 80th.
That foul cost the Baggies, as Ritchie’s free kick was backheeled into his own goal off Evans by Rondon.
