JASON TINDALL feels there were “plenty of positives” to take from Newcastle’s 3-3 draw with Brentford this afternoon – even though the Magpies’ wait for a first win of the season has now stretched to 12 league games.

Newcastle are the only side in the whole of the Premier League and Football League not to have won a game this season, and their latest failure to claim all three points has seen them fall to the foot of the table.

They are mired in relegation trouble, but with Eddie Howe having asked his players to adopt a more positive approach, Tindall was delighted with their response in the attacking third.

The Newcastle assistant said: “Obviously, it wasn’t the result we wanted. We wanted to win the game, and set up to win the game.

“I think there were a lot of positives to take from the performance though, especially from an attacking perspective and a physical perspective.

“We asked the group to play with a real intensity and to play on the front foot, and to attack and try to create chances. I think when you look back, the team had 23 shots on goal and nine shots on target, compared to Brentford’s four (on target).

“I think there were a lot of positives to take, but we’ve obviously conceded three goals and we were disappointed with them. We’ll back at those collectively and individually, and we’ll need to put them right on the training ground.”
