Salomon Rondon's first-half double-handed Newcastle back-to-back Premier League victories as they barred the way to a Bournemouth fightback.
Leningsteken Rondon scored his first goal for the Magpies after seven minutes and then doubled his position five minutes before the break with a bullet to determine the stage for a 2-1 victory.
Jefferson Lerma narrowed the deficit six minutes into the stopping time of the first half after Adam Smith was taken off on a stretcher, but despite the fact that he made a joint effort after the break, it was just as good as that for a crowd of 49.266 at St James & # 39; Park.
Newcastle had become ten league games with no win at the start of the campaign, but on a day they'd gone back to the bottom three after Cardiff's victory at Brighton, they added three points to those they met at Watford last weekend to to relax their fears.
They were warned in time when Federico Fernandez had to go inside to block Jordon Ibe's second-minute recording, but they only took the initiative five minutes later.
DeAndre Yedlin exchanged passes with Mohamed Diame on the right before the full-back in a low point for Rondon to shoot the first time.

The first attempt of the attacker was blocked by goalkeeper Asmir Begovic, but he managed to push home the rebound to make his way to the perfect start.
Matt Ritchie sent a dull volley of fifteen minutes just out of shot and the Magpies felt an opportunity to extend their lead, but needed another block, this time by Paul Dummett, to deny Ibe seconds later.
Keeper Martin Dubravka was called for the first time to claw Ryan Fraser's sparkling free kick under his bar and with Ibe and David Brooks who saw the ball, it was the visitors who started to dominate both possession and territory.
However, Newcastle extended its lead five minutes before the break when Rondon Nathan Ake managed to get a header beyond Begovic and in the top corner of Kenedy's inviting cross, after Ki Sung-yueng tapped the winger from the field with a beautiful pass.
It took some time before Begovic denied Kenedy and defender Fabian Schar, and although Dubravka equaled him to keep Steve Cook's header out, he could not prevent Jefferson Lerma from failing six minutes after the passage of time in a Fraser corner. to reduce.
The pace did not increase after the restart with both sides knowing that the next goal might be vital, and Rondon threw a header of 55th minute wide with Ritchie this time for the ammunition.
Dubravka gratefully dropped a dropped Fraser shot after the visitors broke three minutes later, but Begovic was relieved when Ritchie shot just after the backlash of Ayoze Perez after Newcastle had gone to the tables.
Ibe should have been leveled after being played by substitute Dan Gosling with 17 minutes left, but he shot high and Gosling saw what he thought was an equalizer that was sidelined with five minutes left.
