2-1 D.Duff 90′
The Republic of Ireland international played a fabulous one-two with Mark Viduka then kept his composure to slot the ball past Heurelho Gomes.
Charles N’Zogbia gave Newcastle the lead when he collected a long pass from Shay Given and fired in.
Luka Modric equalised when he ran on to a Michael Dawson ball and sent his low effort past Given.
Newcastle’s second successive win means they are now unbeaten in six and four points clear of a relegation zone they have been flirting with since the start of the season.
