Pic Special: Newcastle 1 Cardiff 2

Newcastle United were knocked out of the FA Cup at the first hurdle after suffering a 2-1 third round home defeat against Cardiff City.

The Magpies went ahead just past the hour mark through Papiss Cisse's fourth goal of the season but two Cardiff substitutes - Craig Noone and Fraizer Campbell - fired them into the next stage.

Hatem Ben Arfa had looked United's biggest threat and struck the woodwork in the first half, but it was Cisse who pounced on a loose ball to edge the hosts in front.

Campbell hit the post in response, shortly before Noone found the back of the net with a stunning long-range effort.

And Campbell completed the turnaround with ten minutes remaining, heading home a corner at the far post, to give new Bluebirds boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a winning start.
