Swansea 2-2 Newcastle Highlights
Newcastle eased some of the pressure on manager Alan Pardew by battling to an unlikely point at Swansea.
The visitors trailed twice, but Papiss Cisse converted their only two clear chances – one a near-post flick, the other a tap in – after crosses from the right to move them up to 18th place.
Swansea led through Wilfried Bony’s low finish, then Wayne Routledge’s cute flick, after Gylfi Sigurdsson passes.
But they could not hold on and go a fourth League game without a win.
