Newcastle United remain rooted to the bottom of the table after a 1-1 draw against relegation rivals Norwich City at St James' Park.
The Magpies had to play 81 minutes with 10 men after Ciaran Clark was sent off early on, but Callum Wilson gave the spirited hosts the lead from the spot before the hour mark.
However, Teemu Pukki equalised in the 79th minute to leave Newcastle winless and six points adrift of safety.

Here are five things we learned from the game.
Newcastle show immense spirit but it's not enough
Newcastle could have easily folded after Ciaran Clark was sent off with just nine minutes on the clock, but the Magpies showed immense spirit to hang in there for so long as they were roared on by a deafening support.
Whether it was a driving run from Joe Willock, a crunching tackle from Fabian Schar or a long-range effort from Joelinton, each action was cheered like it was a goal by the Gallowgate.
The players fed off that energy and Newcastle even took the lead before the hour mark after Callum Wilson's penalty kick squirmed past former Magpies' keeper Tim Krul.
Newcastle looked in control against a blunt Norwich side, but some familiar defensive frailties again proved costly late on. Martin Dubravka could only parry Billy Gilmour's cross into the path of Dimitris Giannoulis in the 79th minute and the substitute's ball back into the box was volleyed home by the unmarked Pukki.
Newcastle were ultimately glad of a point after Dubravka denied substitute Pierre Lees-Melou at the death.
Ciaran Clark's moment of madness reinforces January priority
Newcastle were forced into two changes before a ball was even kicked after Jamaal Lascelles and Matt Ritchie both picked up their fifth yellow cards of the season at the Emirates last time out.
The pair have not been exposed, defensively, of late - Lascelles' desperate offside appeal for Bukayo Saka's opener at Arsenal went viral - but there is no doubting that they are huge leaders in the dressing room who are among Newcastle's most vocal players on the field.
Therefore, it was going to be interesting to see how Newcastle shaped up as the backline was rejigged once more and Jamal Lewis, Ciaran Clark and Javier Manquillo came in into a four-man defence and Fabian Schar kept his place.
The problem has been that, regardless of the combination or formation, leaky Newcastle have just not looked capable of keeping a clean sheet and, inevitably, the Magpies have shot themselves in the foot.
That is exactly what happened with just nine minutes on the clock as Clark's terrible clearance was blocked by Teemu Pukki and the centre-back pulled Norwich's danger man back as he was clean through.
Clark knew what was coming and referee Andy Madley duly brandished a red card to leave Newcastle playing the final 81 minutes of the game with 10 men.
The momentum of the match shifted - Howe immediately threw on Federico Fernandez for Ryan Fraser - and Norwich suddenly started to dominate possession as they forced Newcastle back.
Although Newcastle held firm for so long - Fernandez was a calming presence at the back - this episode was yet another reminder of why the Magpies need defenders in January. That will not be news to Newcastle part-owners Mehrdad Ghodoussi and Jamie Reuben, who were both watching on in the directors' box.
Eddie Howe sees what St James' is all about
Eddie Howe had made that same walk from the tunnel out to the dugout at St James' Park on a number of occasions as Bournemouth manager. However, nothing could have quite prepared the Newcastle boss for the reception he received on Tuesday night as he took charge of his first game on Tyneside as the club's new head coach.
The 44-year-old rarely shows his emotions, but this will have been a proud night as he, literally, followed in the footsteps of managers he grew up admiring, such as Kevin Keegan and Sir Bobby Robson.
Howe may only have been appointed earlier this month but, already, the Newcastle boss has the backing of the supporters, who roared his side off in defeat at Arsenal and applauded the players after a 3-3 draw against Brentford while the Newcastle boss was self-isolating in his hotel room.
Ahead of kick-off, the club's public address system played Heinz hit 'Just like Eddie' while Wor Flags unfurled another brilliant display, which included the John Wooden quote the Newcastle boss lives by: 'Make every day your masterpiece'.
The Gallowgate repeatedly chanted 'Eddie Howe's black and white army' and that support helped Newcastle through on what was a testing night.
Jamal Lewis comes in from the cold and shines
It has been a long wait for Jamal Lewis. You had to go back to February for the last time the left-back started a league game for Newcastle, but Matt Ritchie's suspension opened the door at long last.
Lewis, who was once wanted by Liverpool, has not had an easy start to life on Tyneside. As well as contending with COVID and a hernia issue in the second half of last season, Lewis will be the first to admit he has also struggled to adjust to a very different environment to the one he had been used to on and off the field at Norwich.
However, Lewis will have been among those who has been handed a clean slate by Howe - and it showed on Tuesday night. Although Lewis was not able to bomb in like he likes to, after Newcastle went down to 10 men, from a defensive perspective, he made a number of crucial blocks and put in a mature performance.
Howe has vowed that Lewis will 'only improve under our guidance' and backed the £15m signing to have a 'very bright future'. The Northern Ireland international now needs to build on this.
It already feels like Burnley or bust for Newcastle
It may only be November 30, but this felt like a must-win game. If Newcastle could not beat the second worst side in the division, where were the victories coming from?

Was it any wonder that Ryan Fraser said 'we need to win' for the 'players' minds, for the fans, for everyone gathered around the club?' Players can usually be a little safe in front of the cameras, but the situation was so bleak that even Fabian Schar was honest enough to admit 'we desperately need something'.
However, Newcastle ultimately had to settle for a point. The Magpies are just the fourth team to fail to win any of their first 14 games in a Premier League campaign and all of the previous three - Swindon Town (1994), QPR (2013) and Sheffield United (2021) - were relegated.
Next up is the visit of 18th-placed Burnley and Newcastle simply have to win that game to have any chance of staying up.
