Newcastle 1-0 Aston Villa Highlights
Papiss Cisse scored his 11th goal of the season to give Newcastle manager John Carver his first home win to leave Aston Villa in the bottom three.
Senegal striker Cisse fired a low shot beyond Brad Guzan from eight yards after Daryl Janmaat’s cross.
Tom Cleverley missed Villa’s best chance before Ayoze Perez hit the post with a header for Newcastle.
It means Tim Sherwood’s team have lost their last seven league fixtures.
