Match Report

Salomon Rondon struck his first league goals for Newcastle to help the Magpies overcome high-flying Bournemouth 2-1 at St James’ Park.

The Venezuelan, a summer signing from West Brom, bagged the opener after just seven minutes following neat work from DeAndre Yedlin on the right flank, before doubling the hosts’ lead with a powerful header.

Jefferson Lerma pulled a goal back just before half-time, but Newcastle held on despite an edgy second period to claim a vital win and drag themselves out of the Premier League relegation zone.
