Cisse strike seals win for Magpies

Published Add your comment

Papiss Cisse fired Newcastle to their first Barclays Premier League victory in five attempts as they beat Norwich 1-0 in a tight contest.

The Senegal international struck with 11 minutes gone on an afternoon when he could easily have claimed a hat-trick.

But the visitors created chances of their own, and Tim Krul had to save from Anthony Pilkington and Zak Whitbread in quick succession after the break before Steve Morison passed up a glorious late opportunity.
