Newcastle United have now failed to win their last five English Premier League matches after drawing away to fellow relegation battlers Crystal Palace on Sunday.
With just twelve games remaining before the end of the season, the Magpies find themselves in a very perilous position and desperately need to start winning if they’re to pull away from the bottom three in the relegation zone.
A win appeared to be on its way against the Eagles on Sunday after Mohamed Diame opened the scoring, but a Palace penalty early in the second half put paid to those hopes.
Supporters were left frustrated with the result and performance, believing almost none of the starting eleven deserved any credit.
However, one player they were quick to praise was full-back Paul Dummett, who produced another committed display to stand-out as one of the best performers on the pitch.
Some fans believe he isn’t getting the credit he deserves and took to Twitter to pay tribute to his performance and role in the Magpies team…
Can Paul Dummett get some credit? I'll be honest that over 2 years ago I thought he'd never make it as a player but he's persevered, improved and proven me wrong. Like it or not he's a solid pro and is far better than some charlatans we've had playing for us in our time #NUFC

Imagine if he had a striker that he wanted. We’d of best Everton, Bournemouth, Swansea, Burnley, Southampton (a) etc if we had a good striker. Rest of the team is solid. Paul Dummett our best player AGAIN. #NUFC

Say what you want about Paul Dummett, but he is a local lad that always gives 100%. Townsend hardly had a kick this afternoon. #nufc

Dummett been quality since he came back – best player by a mile today #nufc

This second half has been a disgrace. Not a single player prepared to take responsibility. Shameful. Only one due any credit is Dummett #NUFC

Still see a lot of hate for Dummett. Why? Hes by far our best left back and our defence is better with him in it #nufc

I’ve never really rated Dummett but he was solid today, the kid loves a tackle
