PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Alan Shearer has hailed Nick Pope for a 'magnificent' performance as the summer signing helped Newcastle United earn a draw at Brighton. The England international made a number of key saves as Eddie Howe's side recorded a second straight clean sheet to claim a point against the Seagulls. Matt Targett's injury forced the Magpies into a defensive reshuffle, with Sven Botman handed his full black-and-white debut and Dan Burn shifted to left-back. Newcastle were only able to muster a single shot on target, as Graham Potter's side fashioned several opportunities to break the deadlock. The visitors were forced to clear the ball off their own goalline twice, with Kieran Trippier and Fabian Schar coming to the rescue either side of the interval. Pascal Gross squandered a glorious late opening from close-range, after Pope produced vital stops to deny Adam Lallana and Solly March.
