A strange evening left Graham Dorrans scratching his head as Norwich City threw away victory at Craven Cottage.
The Canaries picked up only the second point in 10 attempts at Fulham, since their last victory 30 years ago – but leading at the break through Dorrans' penalty double, City were hoping for more.
In the end, the draw proved enough for Newcastle to knock Alex Neil's men off the Championship summit.
'It definitely felt like a game that got away from us,' said the Scot.
'We're disappointed in the changing room. We went in at half-time 2-0 up, so to come in after the game not with three points is disappointing. But in the second half I don't think we played well enough.

'We didn't start it well enough and they pushed us back. It was a bit strange that we were under a lot of pressure and they got the two goals, and then once they got the two goals we started to play again. But it was probably a bit late by then.
'We'll travel back, go home, we'll be in on Wednesday and we'll have a look through the game and talk about the positives and negatives from it, we'll dissect it. Maybe it was a bit complacent.

'It's a difficult league and we know that. But I think we need to finish the game how we start it.
'I don't know how we can pinpoint what's gone wrong at the minute, but I think we just need to stay positive. It's an away point. We go again Saturday and (at home to Preston) hopefully we can go and get the three points, and then seven points from this week is not a bad return.'
