  • Full time here at the Britannia Stadium and it's Erik Pieters cross-cum-shot that seals all three points for Stoke City. Another defeat for Newcastle, and another game without a goal. Stoke close the gap on the Magpies by three points - thanks for joining me! Stay tuned for the post-match report and interviews.

  • Arnautovic tries desperately to get his deserved goal and he cuts inside, but fires his shot well wide of Krul's goal. A superb display from the Austrian.

  • 4 minutes of added time to be played.

  • The resulting corner is dealt with easily by Glenn Whelan. Moments later, the ball falls to Yanga-Mbiwa 25 yards out who slices his effort wide.

  • Gouffran shoots on goal but it's blocked and finds its way to Williamson, who sees his shot blocked too but it flies out for a corner.

  • Pieters booked for a late challenge on Armstrong.

  • Jon Walters comes on for Peter Odemwingie

  • Tiote tries to pick out Ameobi with a drilled cross, but it's just a little bit too much for the Nigerian who stretches for the ball and heads over. A half-chance for the Magpies.

  • CHANCE FOR NEWCASTLE! Armstrong slips the ball through to Ameobi, who delivers a superb ball into Anita who's only a few yards out - but can't stretch enough to get his header on target as it flies over the bar.

  • Ben Arfa signals to the crowd that he's injured and is currently struggling to walk, never mind run. He remains on the pitch though, with what looks like a suspected dead leg.

  • A sigh of relief for Mark Hughes, as Arnautovic comes back on to the pitch and runs off his injury.

  • Concerning for Stoke, as Arnautovic goes down after losing his footing. The physio is called on and the Austrian holds his knee in discomfort.

  • Sensational play by Arnautovic who teases Yanga-Mbiwa, drops the shoulder and delivers a superb ball in towards Crouch - who can't stretch enough. That cross deserved a goal.

  • The resulting corner is headed away by Yanga-Mbiwa, with just over ten minutes to play.

  • Cameron paces forward and delivers a good cross in which looks set to for Odemwingie, but it's dealt with and put behind for a corner.

  • Troubling for Newcastle as Ben Arfa goes down after a challenge with Adam and it looks in some considerable pain. Newcastle have used all three substitutes.

  • The resulting free-kick is taken by Adam, who attempts to bend it into the top-right corner but it sails harmlessly over the ball.

  • Coloccini cynically blocks off an onrushing Arnautovic and gets a deserved yellow card. Stoke fans ask for a red, but Yanga-Mbiwa was covering his captain.

  • Stoke counter-attack superbly from Newcastle's corner. N'Zonzi plays a delightful ball to Arnautovic, who slips the ball into Adam who is free in the box - but he curls the ball wide.

  • Double substitution as Dan Gosling and Papiss Cisse come off for Hatem Ben Arfa and Adam Armstrong.
