Newcastle 2-1 West Brom

Oct 29, 2008

Newcastle moved out of the bottom three in the Premier League as first-half goals from Joey Barton and Obefami Martins saw off West Bromwich Albion.

Barton – starting his first match since his release from prison – scored from the spot after 10 minutes following Ryan Donk’s foul on Shola Ameobi.

And Martins headed home Habib Beye’s cross three minutes before half-time.

Substitute Ishmael Miller pulled one back after the break, but West Brom could not make their pressure count.
