  • 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.

  • Optimistic effort from Jaja which Tim Krul holds easily.

  • 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.

  • Another booking as Tim Krul wastes time taking the free-kick.

  • Jonathan Cristaldo goes into the book moments later for catching Tim Krul.

  • Fininho is booked for pushing Yohan Cabaye off the field.

  • Yohan Cabaye is replaced by Gael Bigirimana as Newcastle make their final change.

  • SUPER STOP! Willian gets across his man to flick the ball towards goal but Tim Krul touches it onto the post.

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

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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!

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

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