Joey Barton marked his first start since being released from jail with a goal as Newcastle finally ended their wait for a second Barclays Premier League win of the season with a 2-1 win over West Brom.
Barton converted a ninth-minute penalty and the Magpies looked to have secured Joe Kinnear's first victory as interim boss when Obafemi Martins headed home a second three minutes before the break.
However, substitute Ishmael Miller pulled one back for the visitors with 25 minutes remaining, and the home side had to scrap all the way to the whistle for the points.
