Newcastle remain mired in the battle for Premier League survival after Crystal Palace salvaged a 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park on Sunday.
Rafael Benitez’s side took a first-half lead through Mohamed Diame, but a Luka Milivojevic penalty soon after the interval forced Newcastle to settle for a point.
The Magpies are only one point above the relegation zone in 16th place after failing to win for a fourth consecutive league match.
Palace, without a win in their last three league games, are two points ahead of Newcastle.
The visitors had gone in front in the 22nd minute.
Kenedy swung a low delivery into the penalty area that Milivojevic missed, and when Martin Kelly failed to track Diame’s run, the Senegal midfielder was free to finish from close-range.
But Newcastle defender Ciaran Clark conceded a 55th-minute penalty when he bundled over Christian Benteke, after the striker leaped to reach Wilfried Zaha’s cross.
Serbian midfielder Milivojevic sent his spot-kick towards the bottom corner, and although Karl Darlow got a hand to the ball, he was unable to prevent it reaching the back of the net.
Newcastle’s Jonjo Shelvey was fortunate not to concede another penalty for a blatant tug on James McArthur’s shirt as the Magpies held on.
