Jamie Sterry started at right-back in Newcastle United’s FA Cup clash with Blackburn Rovers yesterday.
But he failed to prevent the game going to a replay as the sides drew 1-1.
Blackburn Rovers took the lead when Bradley Dack headed in an inch-perfect cross.
But Matt Ritchie sent the game to a replay, scoring from the spot after Ayoze Perez was fouled in the box.
Sterry failed to impress when given a rare chance, putting his Newcastle future in even more doubt.
It was the 23-year-old’s second appearance of the season, after he featured in the EFL Cup loss against Nottingham Forest.
With the likes of DeAndre Yedlin and Javier Manquillo ahead of him, Sterry’s chances of first-team action are slim.
And with age no longer on his side, Sterry could well leave this month or in the summer.
The Newcastle academy graduate has previously spent time on loan with Coventry City and Crewe Alexandra.
And he might have to drop down the leagues again to kick-start his career.
Newcastle fans took to social media to have their say on the young right-back and here are some thoughts.https://twitter.com/rooney03/status/1081664036687749122

Sterry is 23 years old.
24 this year.
Needs shipping out permanently.
Time to move on.#NUFC

Total lack of quality today! People who say that starting 11 should be turning Blackburn over need to have a word! Joselu, Murphy, Manquillo, Woodman, Sterry, Hayden would all struggle to get in their side. Thought Longstaff did okay but still to early to tell #NUFC

My thoughts on #NUFC today…
• Woodman has a lot to learn ✝️
• Sterry at 23? Is never gonna make it here
• Schar needs to play in a back 5
• Hayden need to go ?
• Murphy needs a loan
• Joselu isn’t even at Championship standard ?

Sterry can walk himself to Accrington Stanley now. League 1 quality at best. Stinking. #NUFC

Why are we starting the likes of Murphy, Sterry, and Joselu. Lack of quality, might as well give Sørensen, Yannick Toure, and Rolondo Aarons a shot. #NUFC

Thoughts on #nufc match. Sterry and Woodman looked v nervous and failed to impress. Murphy was just hopeless. Joselu hasn’t got it. Haydn didn’t turn up. BUT I was v impressed by Longstaff. Looked composed and not out of place at all. He has a future this kid.
