Watch: Schar saves Newcastle with stunning clearance against Brighton
Newcastle United’s poor start to the season continued against Brighton – but it would’ve been a lot worse if it wasn’t for Fabian Schar.
After their goalless draw against the Seagulls, Steve Bruce’s side are now without a win at home so far this campaign and they were lucky to come away with a point.
Brighton dominated possession throughout the game and came closest to scoring when Aaron Connolly chipped the ball over Martin Dubravka.
However, a last-ditch clearance off the line from Schar rescued Newcastle, and he helped them hang on to a point at St. James’ Park.
WHAT A CLEARANCE!
Aaron Connolly thinks he’s scored but Fabian Schar sweeps it away just in the nick of time.
