Newcastle edge six-goal thriller against Saints
Alan Pardew got the win he craved as Newcastle fought back to beat former club Southampton 4-2 and complete a good week.
The Magpies, who booked their place in the last 16 of the Europa League in Ukraine on Thursday evening, added three priceless Barclays Premier League points to their haul to ease themselves six clear of the relegation zone.
Newcastle fell behind to Morgan Schneiderlin's third-minute strike, but Moussa Sissoko's third goal for the club and Papiss Cisse's volley gave them the advantage at the break. Rickie Lambert levelled five minutes into the second half, but Yohan Cabaye's 67th-minute penalty and a late Jos Hooiveld own goal ensured that the points stayed on Tyneside.
