  • Many thanks for joining me, and give me a follow on Twitter if you have enjoyed my witterings.

  • And that's full time. Bordeaux win at a relative canter, and Newcastle finish as runners up in Group D. A fairly drab affair is settled by two smart finishes from Cheick Diabate, one with head and one left foot.

  • As we near the final whistle, I must mention that Henri Saivet and Fahid Ben Khalfallah have been excellent, and the latter has a late chance which he pulls wide

  • We will have two additional minutes as Bordeaux simply stroke the ball around

  • Newcastle win a late corner, and perhaps a final chance to register a goal this evening

  • Double goalscorer Diabate is removed, to be replaced by Sako

  • Cisse's first action is to be ruled offside. I have to say that the assistant referees have got a few calls wrong tonight, and this is another example

  • The game is now slowing down as both sides appreciate that the contest is over. Can Newcastle gain a consolation? Abeid heads wide as they at least search.

  • Ranger fires over from out wide. The finish is wild, but it was at least an expert turn on the ball.

  • Newcastle are bringing on Papiss Cisse for Ameobi, which seems a risk given the state of the game and pitch. Let's hope he doesn't pick up an injury.

  • Newcastle again enjoying a degree of pressure, but it will be too late to make any significant difference

  • Smart save from Elliot from Ben Khalfallah. The goalkeeper has done well tonight despite conceding twice

  • The game now has a fairly pedestrain fifteen minutes left, as the game (and group) is settled. On this second half performance, Newcastle can feel a little hard done to, but Bordeaux have bee nthe better side

  • Coloccini is now on for Newcastle, replacing Mike Williamson

  • It's a good finish from the Malian through on goal, but Newcastle's high line has cost them

  • 2-0 to Bordeaux, Diabate doubling his goal tally and winning the group for Bordeaux

  • Fabrizio Coloccini will indeed be coming on for Newcastle, which would seem a strange move with the risk of injury

  • Tavernier is booked for a late tackle on Saivet

  • Marveaux has a strike blocked before Anita fires well wide. It looks as if Newcastle may well be bringing on their club captain

  • The game is going through a scrappy period as both sides concede possession with far too much regularity
