It was only marred when Newcastle captain Fabricio Coloccini was hit with an object thrown from the Holmesdale Road stand as the visitors celebrated Papisse Cisse's opener.

Again, both managers were united in condemning the act - with John Carver suggesting his skipper was lucky to not be seriously wounded by what appeared to be a coin.

"It just can't happen can it?" questioned Carver.

"It has got to be taken out of the game. What is disappointing from their point of view is that they have an unbelievable crowd here, an unbelievable atmosphere - it is a fanatical group of supporters in that corner.

"It takes one idiot to throw an coin, I have seen it and it misses Colo's eye by an inch - another inch and it could blind him."

Alan Pardew said it would be an isolated incident but hopes the club put in the necessary steps to indentify the culprit.

"I saw the referee come over to the linesman and hand him something," he said.

"It would be a shame if that was an incident- a random fan acting poorly if that is the case and that is unusual for this club if that is the case because we have a great record of behaviour so I am sure we will look into it."
