Newcastle United have edged closer to a place in the Uefa Cup this season after beating German side 1860 Munich in the Intertoto Cup.

Newcastle won 3-1 at St James' Park on Wednesday night to beat the Munich 6-3 on aggregate.

We got off to a great start, but we just got a little bit sloppy
Bobby Robson

Gary Speed got Newcastle off to a flying start with a headed goal after just five minutes.

Markus Schroth dragged the Germans back into the match just before half-time.

But late goals by substitute Lomana Lua-Lua and Nolberto Solano from the penalty spot wrapped up the game for Bobby Robson's men.

They face French side Troyes in one of the three Intertoto Cup finals with a place in the UEFA Cup on offer for the winners.

Newcastle: Given, Barton, Elliott, Hughes, Dabizas, Solano, Lee, Bellamy, Ameobi, Quinn, Speed. Subs: Griffin, Harper, Stephen Caldwell, Lua-Lua, Bernard, Acuna, Bassedas.

1860 Munich: Jentsch, Tyce, Mykland, Riseth, Max, Haessler, Tapalovic, Greilich, Borimirov, Schroth, Pfuderer. Subs: Hofmann, Weisinger, Agostino, Weissenberger, Dheedene, Ehlers, Ipoua.

Referee: I Baskakov (Russia)
