Stoke City 2 Newcastle 1

Newcastle slumped to a fourth successive Premier League defeat at Stoke City tonight, after going ahead.

Papiss Cisse shot the Magpies ahead, pouncing after Stoke keeper Asmir Begovic parried Demba Ba’s shot early in the second half.

Jonathan Walters levelled in the 81st minute, heading home Cameron Jerome’s cross, then Jerome fired the Potters’ winner after Kenwyne Jones nodded down four minutes later.

Meanwhile, Newcastle defender James Perch will be banned for Sunday’s home clash with Wigan after picking up a fifth booking of the season.
