Result: Loic Remy's injury-time goal secures win for Newcastle United

Newcastle United's poor recent run of form is over after Loic Remy's goal secures them a 1-0 win against Aston Villa in the Premier League.

Loic Remy's late goal has given Newcastle United a 1-0 win against Aston Villa at St James' Park in the Premier League.

Andreas Weimann had the first real chance of the contest, but he could not stretch enough to tap into the empty net with 16 minutes on the clock.

The visitors continued to frustrate the home side. Leandro Bacuna's free kick was stopped by Tim Krul, who also had to be alert to deny Gabriel Agbonlahor.

Papiss Cisse wasted the best chance of the half right at the death when he side-footed an effort well over the bar from inside the six-yard box.

Newcastle were sloppy with possession at the start of the second half, frequently giving the ball away.

However, Moussa Sissoko then found Yoan Gouffran inside the Villa box. The Frenchman had a swing at it, but dragged his effort wide of the far post.

The home team nearly opened the scoring when Paul Dummett fired narrowly over from the edge of the box. After that, the hosts enjoyed a decent spell of possession.

The home players and fans then wanted a penalty after a possible handball from Bacuna, but Martin Atkinson rejected their appeals.

With the match poised to end as a draw, Remy showed great control to fire past Brad Guzan to secure a very late win for Alan Pardew's men.
