  • That's it, and a very promising showing for Newcastle. Plenty of reasons for optimism, and they still have new faces to add to this bunch of players.

  • Five minutes of stoppage time as Newcastle are heading towards a comprehensive victory.

  • GOAL! Armstrong is found free up front, and an excellent little flick inside opens it up before the sub finishes calmly at the near post.

  • A change for either side. Campbell comes on for Coloccini. Gameiro comes off for Timetheou as Sydney make another sub.

  • Some more subs. Armstrong, Satka and Dummett come on for Gouffran, Haidara and Taylor.

  • Dimitrijevic goes into the referee's book.

  • Colback now makes way for Abeid, while the excellent Aarons comes off for Ameobi.

  • Really impressive mazy run from Perez, cutting inside and outside defenders before miscuing his shot.

  • Elliot called into action for the first time. Sydney break quickly and Gameiro nearly curls one into the corner, but Elliot reacts well to save. Corner.

  • Triantis comes on for Brosque as Sydney make their second sub.

  • Another dangerous corner from Colback, but it can't find the head of a Newcastle player.

  • Carle comes off for Dimitrijevic as Sydney make a change.

  • Ayoze Perez takes to the field for Emmanuel Riviere. An impressive debut from the former Monaco man.

  • Colback whips in a free-kick wide on the right but Coloccini can't beat the defender there.

  • Sydney get us underway in the second half. Just the one change for Alan Pardew's men, as Siem de Jong is replaced by Haris Vuckic.

  • Half-time, and it's been an absolute stroll for Newcastle so far. Reasons for optimism include the performances of Aarons, Riviere and de Jong, as well as the look of a solid defence and well-oiled team overall. Sydney have looked poor.

  • Aarons has been the standout player for Newcastle without a doubt. Persistence, pace and strength down the left, and his cross creates havoc in the area again before it's cleared.

  • Petkovic receives a yellow card for a handball 20 yards out. De Jong's free-kick can't quite bend enough around the wall.

  • Though Sydney started relatively brightly, the Newcastle onslaught has really set them back. They're offering little going forward as Coloccini and Taylor stay strong in the centre.

  • GOAL! Newcastle make it 3, and it's the most unlikely of sources! Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa marauds on a trademark(!) run forward, and his deflected effort from 25 yards out finds the bottom corner.
