Hull 0-3 Newcastle: How many goals have the Magpies scored via substitutes this season?
John Carver grabbed his first victory as Newcastle boss as the Magpies romped to a 3-0 win at struggling Hull in Saturday's early kick-off.
Goals from Remy Cabella, Sammy Ameobi and a deflected Yoan Gouffran third gave the travelling Toon Army something to smile about, while a self-destructive Hull sunk into the relegation zone.
