  • Newcastle take maximum points at St James' Park thanks to Papiss Cisse's stoppage time winner. Hatem Ben Arfa was the creator and the Senegalise striker did the rest. It was a bitter blow for Premier League strugglers Crystal Palace who has worked hard throughout.

  • WINNER FOR NEWCASTLE!!! Papiss Cisse scores only his second Premier League goal of the season and his first from open play in a year! Hatem Ben Arfa's wonderful ball into the box is headed home for the striker to head home.


  • OFF THE CROSSBAR!!! Cheick Tiote thunderous long-range effort takes a deflection off Mile Jedinak and hammers against the woodwork. Papiss Cisse then completely misses the ball as the cross came in from the right.

  • Newcastle United will have failed to score in nine of their last 12 Premier League games and have netted just one goal in total in their last six at St James Park should it remain like this.

  • We're into THREE added minutes at St James' Park.

  • Hatem Ben Arfa gets himself into a good position, but then his effort on goal is completely wild.

  • Moussa Sissoko is replaced by Sylvain Marveaux for the final few minutes.

  • Moussa Sissoko's attempted cross deflects away for a corner.

  • Cheick Tiote's poor pass forward is easily collected by Julian Speroni.

  • Damien Delaney is shown a yellow card by referee Lee Probert for a late challenge.

  • There are over 50,000 inside St James' Park.

  • Cheick Tiote is forced to dig the ball out of his feet before shooting, but it was always heading over the crossbar.

  • Palace are looking for their first win in five, but with time running out, they'll happily settle for a point in their fight against the drop.

  • Adlene Guedioura comes on for Jason Puncheon as Tony Pulis makes his final change.

  • The 3,000 Crystal Palace fans will feel it's been worth the journey to the North East today if they manage to pick up a point at the very least.

  • Tony Pulis looks like he wants his side to try and pick up maximum points with two positive changes.

  • Cameron Jerome is replaced by Glenn Murray for Palace while Shola Ameobi comes on for Yoan Gouffran as Newcastle also make a change.

  • Yoan Gouffran has enough and drives his right-foot piledriver well wide of the mark.

  • Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa volleys his cross into the box and although Papiss Cisse does his best to flick it on Palace manage to clear.
