Ghana winger Christian Atsu was named Man-of-the-Match after scoring in Newcastle United's 2-0 win at Cardiff City in the Championship on Friday night.

Atsu scored after 55 minutes thanks to the first real moment of quality from the Ghana international.

He was tripped by Morrison on the edge of the area before stepping up to clip a perfect free-kick over the wall and into the top corner.

Newcastle doubled their advantage 10 minutes later thanks to another fine effort from outside the area, this time by Hayden as he picked up the ball 25 yards from goal before thundering an unstoppable drive into Allan McGregor's bottom corner.
