Charlie Adam brought Newcastle down to earth with a bump as Blackpool snatched a 2-0 win and another three priceless Barclays Premier League points.

The Scot converted a 45th-minute penalty after Luke Varney had been tripped by Alan Smith to claim a hard-fought victory.

Magpies defender Mike Williamson hit the post and keeper Matt Gilks pulled off fine saves to deny Kevin Nolan, Joey Barton, substitute Peter Lovenkrands and Andy Carroll as the home side launched a concerted fightback, but DJ Campbell wrapped up the win with a late second.
