Pic Special: Cardiff 1 Newcastle 2

Loic Remy's first-half brace earned Newcastle United another away-day triumph with a 2-1 win at Cardiff City on Saturday.

The forward struck twice in eight minutes with a pair of brilliant finishes, before Bluebirds' forward Peter Odemwingie pulled one back after the break in South Wales.

Remy's first was a solo effort, taking the ball from inside his own half before firing home, and the on-loan star then struck from 18 yards to give United breathing space.

Odemwingie gave Cardiff hope but they were unable to grab a share of the spoils, and anything less than three points would have been harsh on Alan Pardew's side, who entirely dominated the first period and produced a solid second half display.

In fact, were it not for home goalkeeper David Marshall the advantage could have been even greater, with Remy, Papiss Cisse and Moussa Sissoko all denied by the Scot, as well as Yohan Cabaye rattling the woodwork with a long-range free-kick.

The result was Newcastle's third away win of the season in all competitions and takes their Premier League points tally to ten from seven games.
