Pic Special: Newcastle 2 West Brom 3

Newcastle showed character in spades to twice come from behind against West Bromwich Albion, but they couldn't draw level for a third time after Paul Scharner's late goal for the Baggies and slipped to their fourth defeat of the season - each of them coming in the last six games.

Demba Ba scored twice and had two more disallowed, while Haris Vuckic made a strong first Barclays Premier League start and Hatem Ben Arfa showed some nice touches when he entered the fray as a second half substitute.

But Peter Odemwingie, Gareth McAuley and Scharner's strikes proved enough for Roy Hodgson's team, and Ian Horrocks and Serena Taylor were there to capture the goals, the chances and more.
