Magpies fight back to hang on to valuable point.
Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew saw his job saved for another week at least as his side fought back from behind twice to earn a very valuable point against a sprightly Swansea side.
Swansea striker Wilfried Bony struck first after a smart one-two one of his teammates to take advantage of the sluggishness of the Newcastle defence to go 1-0 up.
But Newcastle weren’t down for long as Papiss Cisse equalised on the stroke of half time, though the goal was not without controversy as it looked, on first glance, to be offside.
There was more controversy later on when Swansea’s Wayne Routledge gave his side the lead again as Newcastle’s Moussa Sissoko claimed to be fouled in the build up, but the ref was having none of it and waved play on.
But that wasn’t all, with 15 minutes remaining Papiss Cisse managed to find himself some space again to slot home a second equaliser, sneaking into some space unmarked and stabbing home from close range.
