  • The full-time whistle goes and Newcastle have clung on for a 2-1 victory to keep up their strong run and seal another unhappy return to St James' Park for Hughton.

  • Ryan Bennett goes into the book after clipping the heels of Sissoko.

  • Newcastle have a chance to put the game to bed as they end up with a two-against-one on the counter-attack, but Remy opts to go for goal rather than play in Cisse and his shot is deflected wide.

  • Tiote does well in midfield to win the ball and relieve the pressure for Newcastle.

  • Hoolahan also comes on in place of Johnson for the closing stages, and immediately takes a free-kick which is deflected wide for a corner.

  • Norwich's second change of the afternoon sees Redmond replaced by Murphy.

  • Redmond has looked lively for Norwich and he directs a low cross into the area, but it is booted away by Coloccini.

  • Cisse thinks for a second his goal drought is over as he slots a shot past Ruddy, but the flag was already up for offside after he set off his run too early to latch on to Sissoko's pass.

  • A buzz goes around St James' Park as Ben Arfa picks up the ball and wriggles away from a couple of challenges before lifting a left-wing cross into the centre for Cisse to head over.

  • There is a feeling of anxiety around the ground now as Norwich apply some pressure and keep Newcastle pinned back.

  • Pardew decides it is time to bring on Ben Arfa for Gouffran for the closing stages.

  • That goal has stung Newcastle back into life as Sissoko charges forward in an effort to restore their two-goal lead, before being blocked off by a couple of defenders.

  • GOAL! Fer reduces Norwich's arrears with a wonderfully powerful header from a corner which leaves Krul with no chance as it whistles into the bottom corner.

  • Elmander wins a corner for Norwich as he is tackled by Yanga-Mbiwa, and there is a moment of panic for Krul as the ball ricochets off a couple of players and just wide.

  • Norwich need to increase the tempo if they are going to get back into this match and they try to build some momentum as Martin races forward down the right, but Newcastle's organised defence is proving hard to break down.

  • Ameobi receives a tremendous round of applause as he makes way for Cisse, and it is fully deserved after an impressive performance.

  • Johnson floats in a looping cross from the left which Fer rises highest to meet in the centre, but only heads over the bar.

  • Ameobi lets fly with an ambitious shot from distance which is hopelessly off target and flies high and wide.

  • Fer launches a hopeful long ball in to Newcastle territory, which just presents Williamson with the simple task of mopping up and knocking it back to Krul.

  • The second half has yet to really catch fire but that will not bother Newcastle in the slightest as they concentrate on protecting their 2-0 lead.
