Newcastle 1-2 Stoke: Toon own-goal hands victory to Potters

An own-goal from Newcastle defender James Perch has handed Stoke City a vital away win in the Premier League.

The Magpies drew first blood when Kevin Nolan converted a 43rd minute penalty to give his side a well-earned lead but the Potters fought back to equalise through Kenwyne Jones who headed home from point-blank range in the 67th minute.

The match was headed for a draw until Perch's header rocketed past Newcastle keeper Tim Krul and into the back of the net, handing all three points to the visitors.
