Newcastle United managed to squeeze past League One opposition Oxford United in midweek during an FA Cup fourth round replay – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter were left fuming with the performance of defender DeAndre Yedlin.
Steve Bruce’s side needed extra-time before ending up 3-2 victory at the Kassam Stadium, with substitute Allan Saint-Maximin firing in the winner in the 116th minute.
The Magpies avoided a cup upset, despite Oxford sending the game to extra-time when Nathan Holland volleyed in a 94th minute equaliser to make it 2-2.
Newcastle are still alive in the cup travel to Championship leaders West Brom in the fifth round, while in the Premier League they are currently sat seven points away from the relegation places in a decent position.
A selection of Newcastle supporters on social media were fed up with defender Yedlin following his latest display, with one even suggesting that his time at St James’ Park should be coming to an end.
The 26-year-old right-back has had a spate of injuries disrupt his season so far and Tuesday night’s cup fixture was just his 15th appearance of the campaign across all competitions.
He certainly didn’t make the most of his opportunities when pushed into offensive positions and his delivery wasn’t good enough.
Here are some Newcastle fans on Yedlin:
Why is Yedlin absolutely awful this season. Manquillo is miles ahead of him. #NUFC

For when he was on the pitch Almiron was sensational tonight. Work rate top notch. Yedlin was a disgrace. 5th round nose bleed time #nufc

A great winner papering over the cracks again! Ritchie and Yedlin were absolutely shocking down the flanks tonight! We dropped far too deep as well! #NUFC

Why is Yedlin still in this team

Yedlin has been garbage tonight. Got caught up the pitch so many times and given it away in good positions way too often. Can only hope Lazaro is a better option cos DeAndre is well off form #NUFC

Yedlin has been so poor tonight. You’d imagine his Newcastle career is coming to an end now. #NUFC

Yedlin time and time again, final ball so poor. He’s been in bad form recently! #nufc
