PAUL Dummett booked Newcastle United a Capital One Cup tie against Manchester City with a dramatic goal against Crystal Palace tonight.

Dummett struck in the 112th minute to settle the tie at Selhurst Park.

GOALS ... Emmanuel Riviere.

GOALS ... Emmanuel Riviere.

Sullay Kaikai had taken the game, which ended 3-2, into extra time with an injury-time equaliser.

But Dummett’s diving header booked 10-man United – who had Mehdi Abeid sent off – a fourth-round date against cup-holders and Premier League champions City.

Dwight Gayle had put Palace ahead with a first-half penalty, but Emmanuel Riviere levelled before the break with his first goal in English football.

And Riviere added a second from the spot early in the second half, but Kaikai levelled.

Under pressure manager Alan Pardew had made six changes for the third-round tie, with full debutant Adam Armstrong among those coming into his side.

Newcastle made a positive start to the game, but they went behind in the 25th minute.

Daryl Janmaat was adjudged to have brought down Wilfried Zaha by referee Robert Madley, and Gayle converted the resulting penalty.

But Pardew’s side kept on pressing their hosts.

And they got themselves back on level terms in the 36th minute.

Riviere was played in by Armstrong, and the striker turned and beat goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey from the edge of the box with a fine left-footed shot.

Madley was again pointing to the spot early in the second half after Ameobi was clumsily brought down by Patrick McCarthy.

Riviere confidently converted the spot kick to put United ahead.

Newcastle looked on course to see the game out, but Palace substitute Kaikai struck in injury time to take the game into extra time.

United midfielder Abeid, booked earlier in the game, got a second yellow card for a late challenge on Zaha.

Dummett netted the decisive goal the 112th minute from a left-wing Armstrong cross.
