Keeper Karl Darlow is mobbed by his Newcastle team-mates after saving Yohan Cabaye’s penalty

Newcastle moved out of the relegation zone as Andros Townsend’s strike and a penalty save by Karl Darlow helped them to victory over Crystal Palace.

With Norwich playing at Arsenal later and Sunderland drawing at Stoke, the Magpies moved into 17th – a point clear of the Black Cats.

Townsend gave Newcastle the lead after the break with a magnificent 20-yard free-kick.

Darlow then came to the rescue when he saved Yohan Cabaye’s poor penalty.
