Spurs heap more misery on Magpies

Published Add your comment

Roman Pavlyuchenko broke his Tottenham duck as the Carling Cup holders dumped managerless Newcastle out of the competition with a 2-1 win at St James' Park.

The Russia international set the ball rolling with a 62nd-minute header, and midfielder Jamie O'Hara sealed the win four minutes later when he made the most of Steven Taylor's slip to fire past Shay Given.

Michael Owen had earlier forced a good save from Heurelho Gomes, and he got his reward when he slotted home in the final minute of normal time, although to no avail.
