Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse has scored in first appearance for the club after reversing a decision not to wear the team's Wonga sponsorship.

The Senegalese player had objected on moral and religious grounds to displaying the payday lender's logo on his playing kit.

Cisse's goal came in a pre-season friendly against Scottish side St Mirren.
