City travelled to St James' Park knowing that victory would mean beating QPR on the final day would guarantee a first Premier League title ever - and a first top flight championship for 44 years.
But standing in the way were a formidable Magpies side.
The hosts, looking to secure a top five spot themselves, had enjoyed an excellent season and were looking to finish on a high.

It was an unforgettable day on Tyneside - enjoy all it again in the video above...
