Shola Ameobi set Newcastle on their way with the opening goal on three minutes, and Sylvain Marveaux then netted twice - the second a penalty - to make it 3-0 inside 12 minutes.
Haris Vuckic then extended their advantage with a lob early in the second half and, while Antony Sweeney reduced the arrears, Gabriel Obertan drilled home five minutes from time to complete the rout.
