Frame not included.

Goal story: Most people would be happy with scoring a 90th minute winner, but not Temuri Ketsbaia. Having been a frustrated sub Ketsbaia was brought on in the 79th minute after Bolton had just equalised. With Newcastle getting desperate, a long hopeful ball was directed towards Shearer to attack. Nodding it back into the danger zone the ball then found its way to Ketsbaia after the keeper had flapped at it. Slotting the ball home the Georgian then threatened to strip to his pants and then proceeded to take his anger out on the helpless advertising boards. Nutter; but fondly remembered.
