Papiss Cisse had mixed emotions breaking his scoring duck in Newcastle United's defeat to Stoke City.

Even though the goal ended his barren spell, the Senegal insisted he would swap the strike for three points.

Cisse told the Evening Chronicle after the 2-1 loss to Stoke City: “The goal was important for me but the most important thing for me is the fact the team wins.

“I scored, but the team did not win.

“I was very happy to score and my team-mates were happy for me but we would much rather be celebrating a win together.”
