  • Newcastle are through to the last-16 of the Europa League after a solid 1-0 victory against Metalist Kharkiv in Ukraine. Shola Ameobi scored the only goal of the game and it came from the penalty spot after 64 minutes. Papa Gueye's woeful back-pass was collected by Moussa Sissoko before he was brought crashing to the ground by Aleksandr Goryainov. Tim Krul then produced a string of spectacular saves to deny the hosts a way back into the tie.

  • Sebastian Blanco's cross is headed out by James Perch.

    90+4
  • Optimistic effort from Jaja which Tim Krul holds easily.

    90+3
  • We're into FIVE added minutes of stoppage time as Sebastian Blanco delivers a wonderful cross from the right, but nobody gets on the end of it.

    87
  • Yohan Cabaye is back on his feet and back in action as Massadio Haidara slides in to concede a corner.

    86
  • Yohan Cabaye is on the ground and requiring some medical attention. Referee Serge Gumienny tells him to get off the pitch if he wants to receive assistance.

    85
  • Metalist head coach Myron Markevych is an unhappy figure on the bench while Alan Pardew looks one proud Newcastle manager.

    84
  • The Magpies have held on for dear life in the last ten minutes, but you feel that time is just about up for the home side with the clock ticking.

    82
  • Some respite for Newcastle as they earns a free-kick as Metalist make their final change. Sebastian Blanco replaces Edmar.

    81
  • OFF THE LINE! James Perch saves Newcastle as he gets in the way of Jaja's effort at the back post.

  • Tim Krul made himself big for the first save before showing smart reactions to deny Cristaldo's right-foot curler at the second attempt.

    78
  • GREAT DOUBLE SAVE! Magnificent shot-stopping by Tim Krul. He denies Jonathan Cristaldo not once, but twice with point-blank saves. Sensational stuff from the Toon man!

    77
  • It's a double Newcastle change too as James Perch and Jonas Gutierrez come on for Papiss Cisse and Vurnon Anita.

    75
  • Papiss Cisse is booked after getting annoyed with Metalist striker Jonathan Cristaldo.
