Newcastle United fans want more minutes for Mitrovic following West Brom cameo

Newcastle United fans have always had a soft spot for Aleksandar Mitrovic, but manager Rafael Benitez does not seem convinced that he is right for the team.

The 23-year-old has only made six appearances in all competitions and none of the outings include a Premier League start.

Mitrovic has featured in five top-flight games off the bench, but has played just 87 minutes of action.

On Tuesday night, the Serbian entered the field of play in the 73rd minute at The Hawthorns with the scoreline 2-1 in favour of the Baggies.

Rafael Benitez’s men conceded two goals on either side of half time, but Ciaran Clark managed to pull one back for the Magpies just before the hour mark.

In the end, Newcastle were gifted a point when Jonny Evans scored an own goal with seven minutes left on the clock.

Fans were once again disgruntled with Joselu’s display, but Mitrovic’s cameo, which included a disallowed goal, was praised.
