Late goals give Newcastle victory at Palace

Late goals by Callum Wilson and Joelinton earned Newcastle United a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace on Friday as they got back to winning ways after consecutive Premier League defeats.

It looked as though the points would be shared on a chilly night in south-east London but just when Palace were threatening, Steve Bruce's visitors struck.

Wilson's neat finish in the 87th minute following a counter-attack gave Newcastle the lead and 100 seconds later they sealed the points when Brazilian Joelinton's shot deflected past keeper Vicente Guaita for his first league goal of the season.

Newcastle's win lifted them to 10th in the table on 14 points from 10 games with Palace 13th and a point behind.
