Goals from Swansea City's Michu and Jonathan de Guzman sealed an excellent victory against Newcastle at St James' Park.

Demba Ba pulled one back for the Magpies late into stoppage time but the Swans held out for only their second away win of the season.

Michu scored his eighth goal of the season as he met a low Pablo Hernandez cross to give the Swans the lead mid way through the second half.

Hernandez capitalised on an awful Tim Krul clearance to find his Spanish teammate who headed home, unmarked, six yards out.

Danny Graham was brought on with 10 minutes remaining and it was his shot that was parried by Krul into the path of de Guzman who smashed the ball into the roof of the net to double the visitors lead with just minutes remaining.

Newcastle pushed forward looking for a way back and it came from top scorer Demba Ba who turned the ball home following a goal mouth scramble.

Ba's goal came 2 minutes into 4 that was added on at the end of the game, although Swansea were able to hold out to secure a well deserved win.
