Cisse poaches lucky late goal

NEWCASTLE 2 vs WEST BROM 1

NEWCASTLE manager Alan Pardew welcomed his side’s stroke of good luck after Papiss Cisse fluked a last minute winner at St James’ Park.

A Sammy Ameobi shot hit Cisse and flew in with just seconds to go. Newcastle had taken the lead through a Demba Ba volley on 35 minutes before West Brom drew level 10 minutes after the break with a Romelu Lukaku header, though Cisse stole the points.

“We’ve not had many breaks this season,” Pardew said. “We’ve won the game and we'll take that.”
