Newcastle United ended a four-match losing streak with a 3-1 win over West Ham at the Boleyn Ground.

Yohan Cabaye gave the visitors a 15th minute lead and Loic Remy doubled the lead just past the half-hour mark.

Despite being on the back foot for most of the first half, West Ham replied just before the interval when Carlton Cole's shot was deflected in by Mike Williamson.

Cabaye wrapped up the points in second half stoppage-time after the Hammers failed to make the most of lengthy spells of pressure.

Sam Allardyce made two enforced changes to his side, with James Collins and Mohamed Diame coming in for the injured Guy Demel and suspended James Tomkins.

Captain Kevin Nolan served the final game of a four-match suspension, while his former side Newcastle were unchanged from Sunday's defeat to Manchester City.

The hosts began the brighter, buoyed by a first league win since November last Saturday at Cardiff City.

Remy had Newcastle's first opportunity, cutting inside Matt Taylor and shooting wide following a lofted ball from Cabaye after eight minutes.

Cabaye handed his side the lead soon after, taking Yoan Gouffran's ball in his stride and past Razvan Rat before steering beyond Adrian with his right foot.

Mark Noble was called on to clear Gouffran's effort off the line four minutes later, before Moussa Sissoko shot straight at Adrian when through on goal as the visitors enjoyed a strong spell of pressure.

Their dominance paid off after 33 minutes when Remy took Sissoko's cross on his chest and nudged the ball past Adrian to put Newcastle two goals ahead.

Williamson's own goal gave Allardyce's side hope in injury-time at the end of the first half, with Cole's saved effort ricocheting off the defender and rolling in.

Cole could have had a goal of his own 10 minutes into the second half, but could only divert Rat's delivery past Krul's far post as the hosts began well after the interval.

Allardyce, who brought on Ravel Morrison at the break, introduced former Newcastle striker Andy Carroll soon after the hour mark, and the England international was denied a leveller by Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa's well-timed clearance from Stewart Downing's dangerous cross.

Carroll fired over from inside the area with 15 minutes remaining as West Ham pushed for a second before Cabaye got rid of any Newcastle nerves, curling in a free-kick off the post from outside the area to send the home side back into the relegation zone.

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce: "Irrespective of how desperate it gets, we have to make sure Andy Carroll stays fit for the rest of the season [instead of playing him for longer each match]. We had a bit of fight and passion and had to give the fans a bit of excitement.

"I was praying it'd be like 'a Sunderland'. Their fans were disgruntled earlier, but got a 2-2 draw [against Southampton]. We could have done the same, but failed to convert the chances."

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew: "A super win. We made it difficult for ourselves in the second half. We could have come away without winning – they had two big chances.

"We were really good in the first half – we had something like 12 shots in the first half. We were kicking ourselves to be just a goal up at half-time."
