      Audacious effort from Ameobi as the forward produces an overhead-kick from the edge of the box, but his attempt lands on the roof of the net. Another let-off for West Brom.

      Confident goalkeeping! Taylor's corner is dropped right into the middle of the penalty area, but Myhill brings the danger to an end with an assuring catch to relieve the pressure.
    • 90'
      BIG SAVE! Cisse battles away in the area as he tries to get the ball under control, eventually getting it under his spell before playing a backheel to Sissoko, whose first-time effort on the edge of the box forces Myhill into a smart save.

      The referee brings the match to a close and the two teams must settle for a point. Newcastle dictated proceedings for much of the match, though they simply did not have the craft of guile to find a way through West Brom's resolute and generally solid backline. The result does little to arrest the ho

      Newcastle 1-1 West Brom: The referee brings the first half to a close with the score level. The home side have largely dictated proceedings at St. James' Park, though Pulis' men held firm for most of the first half after Anichebe's 32nd-minute opener. Nevertheless, Perez tied things up just before t

      It has been a tumultuous week for Newcastle in the lead up to this clash. The fall-out from Carver's suggestion that Mike Williamson deliberately got himself sent off against Leicester City brought about player meetings and crisis talks among the staff, before Coloccini released a public letter urgi

      By contrast, West Brom manager Tony Pulis effectively has a full squad to pick from today. James Morrison has won his battle to be fit after picking up a knock in training and he takes a place on the bench, with Ben Foster - out until October with a knee injury - the only absentee. The visitors, who

      Newcastle's issues have been well-documented in the build-up to this match, much of which have stemmed from a dismal run of eight successive defeats in the Premier League. However, a significant injury list has hardly helped Carver's efforts, with no less than seven players - including the likes of

      Hello and welcome to the LIVE coverage of the Premier League clash between Newcastle United and West Brom. My name is Ryan Benson and I shall be describing the action at St. James' Park for you today, as John Carver's men look to arrest an alarming run at the end of a turbulent week for the Toon.
    • 1'
      Off we go! Newcastle get us underway.
    • 3'
      Uneventful opening few minutes at St. James Park. Newcastle have tried to make ground down the left with Cabella, though he was swiftly halted by Dawson and the visitors are already looking to exploit Anichebe's physicality.
    • 4'
      Good play by Sissoko. The France international holds off Gardner and charges forward, towards the West Brom area. Space opens up for him and he opts to try his luck from distance, sending a fierce drive just over the crossbar.
    • 6'
      Cabella is seeing quite a lot of the ball during these early proceedings. The Frenchman produces a fine touch in the middle to beat Mulumbu, before bursting towards the attack. He gets the ball back and looks to dart across the edge of the area, though Dawson gets a foot in and halts the danger.
    • 7'
      West Brom mount their first attack of the match and they head up the right flank. Gardner gets in behind Taylor and whips a decent delivery into the box. It is too high for Anichebe, but the visitors get their first corner as Anita knocks it behind.
    • 8'
      OFF THE POST! Gardner's corner delivery in excellent, as he whips it in towards the near post. Dawson meets it with a well-timed header and it looks destined to find the net, only for the post to come to the rescue of Krul and Newcastle. Anichebe then sees his effort blocked on the follow-up.
    • 10'
      That was a lucky escape for the hosts. You have to wonder what sort of an effect conceding the opening goal would have on this Newcastle side, which is already rather low on confidence. Nevertheless, they are swiftly back on the attack and win a free-kick on the left wing.
    • 11'
      That's a very good chance! Cabella stands over the free-kick and bends an inviting delivery into the danger area. Dummet manages to break free of his marker and he gets a free header, but the defender's effort goes comfortably over from eight yards. He should have done better there.
    • 13'
      The home side certainly aren't playing with great intensity here. Their moves have been somewhat laborious so far, with Riviere yet to be given much service. They could do with upping the tempo a little.
    • 15'
      Mulumbu tries to cause Newcastle some problems on the right side of the pitch as he runs at Taylor and manages to squeeze past, but Dummet comes across and steals the ball back, sweeping up to good effect.
    • 16'
      Good turn in the middle by Perez, who has been quiet so far. He swivels and bursts away from two in the West Brom midfield, before finding Cabella on the left. The Frenchman takes too much time on the ball and eventually sees him attempted cross blocked.
    • 17'
      Cabella is at the centre of things again on the left, but as before he finds himself up against two and, although he is able to edge his way into the area, his delivery strikes Dawson.
    • 19'
      Newcastle certainly feel Dawson can be got at, as they work the play over to Cabella again. The winger darts down to his left and manages to squeeze a delivery past the right-back from the byline, but it just goes straight into the side-netting. A bit of a waste.
    • 21'
      The home side are starting to take control of this, though West Brom don't appear particularly worried at the back. Cabella is seeing a lot of the ball, but his final ball is yet to really threaten.
    • 22'
      Cabella finds himself in a more central position this time. He chases a loose ball and seizes it, before darting between a couple of defenders and winning a free-kick from Yacob, who produces an agricultural challenge.
    • 23'
      Decent try! Ryan Taylor stands over the free-kick, about 35 yards from goal in a fairly central position. He curls an effort around the wall and towards the bottom-left corner, but the ball goes agonisingly wide.
    • 25'
      Good play by Anita, as the Dutchman, who is playing right-back today, knocks the ball around Brunt and attempts to collect it on the other side. He is tripped by the West Brom midfielder and wins a free-kick.
    • 26'
      In goes the delivery from Cabella. Coloccini and Dummet are both there underneath it as the ball arrives in the area, but the Argentine's eventual header goes well over.
    • 28'
      Newcastle are getting a lot of set-pieces in the West Brom half at the moment and the deliveries have generally been good, but the away side are proving a tought nut to crack. Taylor is the latest to swing in, though Sissoko is penalised for a foul on Dawson, leaving the defender in a heap.
    • 30'
      Clever touch by Perez, as the Spaniard receives a pass in to feet from Anita and nudges it around the corner, luring Fletcher into a foul. Another Newcastle free-kick, this time just to the right of the area.
    • 31'
      J. Gutiérrez goes into the referee's book.
    • 31'
      OFF THE LINE! West Brom fail to deal with Taylor's delivery effectively and Sissoko pounces near the penalty spot. His initial effort is blocked at point-blank range, but he powers through and gets a second bite, only to see his placed effort saved by Yacob.

    • 32'
      C. Gardner provided the assist.
    • 32'
      GOAL!!! WEST BROM HAVE THE LEAD! Against the run of play, the away side edge themselves ahead! After a Jonas foul out on the right flank, Gardner bends a fine delivery in towards the near post. Anichebe peels away from his marker and meets the cross with a precise header, finding the bottom-right co
    • 34'
      Newcastle are straight back on the attack in search of an immediate response. They win a corner out of little on the left, though Mulumbu heads Taylor's cross away with minimal fuss.
    • 35'
      Brunt does well out on the left, as he steals the ball from Anita and then surges past the Dutchman. He gets a low delivery into the area from his wide berth, but Coloccini mops up with ease.
    • 36'
      One of Newcastle's problems today has been their refusal to shoot. On this occasion Perez produces a nice turn about 25 yards from goal, but, even after being afforded plenty of space for a shot, he takes another touch and is subsequently robbed.
    • 38'
      Very nicely worked by West Brom. Anichebe plucks a long ball out of the air in delightful fashion, before holding off Dummet and bringing Gardner into play. A one-two sees the midfielder released in behind Taylor and Coloccini knocks his low cross behind.
    • 40'
      That's a bit better from the home side. Sissoko finds himself in possession in the inside-left channel and he runs at Dawson, cutting on to his right foot and sending a placed effort into the arms of Myhill. At least that was a shot!
    • 41'
      G Ayoze Pérez Assist C. Gardner
    • 41'
      Assist by R. Taylor.
    • 41'
      GOAL!!! NEWCASTLE EQUALISE! Taylor's free-kick delivery is pretty poor and goes no further than the edge of the area, but Perez is there to pounce on it, setting himself up with his first touch and then lashing well-placed effort into the bottom-right corner.
    • 41'
      A yell comes from Colback as the midfielder is caught a little late by Mulumbu out on the left flank. Taylor again heads over to take. Can Newcastle muster something to go into the break level?
    • 43'
      West Brom almost conjure up the opportunity to instantly re-take the lead! Brunt charges on to a pass and bursts into the right side of the Newcastle penalty area. Krul comes out but gets nowhere near the ball and the visitors quickly clip it back into the danger area. Anichebe appears to be on hand
    • 45'
      More pressure from the home side now. Anita and Perez link on the right and the Dutchman gets a cross into the penalty area. Riviere is under it, but McAuley is there to nod behind for a corner.
    • 46'
      Off we go for the second half.
    • 48'
      WEST BROM GO CLOSE! Anichebe does brilliantly, as he brings the ball down about 35 yards from the Newcastle goal, holds off Coloccini and then picks out Brunt to the left. He instantly chips a pass to the back post for Gardner, but he inexplicably fails to hit the target.
    • 50'
      Perez is in a bit of pain here after being caught in the face by the elbow of McAuley, but he appeared to be purely accidental and the referee takes no further action.
    • 51'
      Good play by Jonas. The Argentine hasn't done much in an attacking capacity today, but this time he does well up against Dawson, before crossing right-footed. McAuley is there to head clear before Sissoko can pounce, though.
    • 52'
      C. Dawson is yellow-carded.
    • 53'
      Delightful run by Cabella, as the Frenchman picks up possession just inside the West Brom half, turns away from two opponents and then darts up the wing. He cuts inside Dawson and draws him into a foul, with the referee's yellow card unsurprisingly making an appearance.
    • 55'
      SI J. Morrison SO C. Gardner
    • 55'
      J. Morrison enters play, replacing Y. Mulumbu.
    • 55'
      Cabella is causing problems again. He charges up the left flank, skips past a couple of challenges and gets into the penalty area. He prods a pass through to Perez, who tries to tee up Sissoko on the edge of the area, but Yacob makes an important intervention.
    • 57'
      After that lucky escape at the start of the half, Newcastle have risen in stature and are beginning to look bright in attack, particularly with Perez, Sissoko and Cabella.
    • 58'
      Good play by the hosts again, this time down the right wing. Perez links well with Sissoko, who peels away out wide and play a low cross into the six-yard box. Riviere arrives late and catches Olsson off guard, but his first-time effort on the stretch goes well over.
    • 60'
      Anita hasn't got forward a great deal today, but this time he is encouraged into the final third. He latches on to a pass and crosses, though his delivery causes Myhill little bother, as the goalkeeper plucks it out of the air.
    • 62'
      Carver clearly isn't happy about something. The Newcastle coach is ranting and raving over on the touchline and isn't letting West Brom have the ball. The referee ignores his gesticulations, though.
    • 64'
      Taylor swings a corner delivery into the box from the left. It lands near Coloccini, but not kindly enough for the Argentine, whose first touch is heavy. He picks out Perez to his right and the Spaniard's low cross is deflected into the arms of Myhill.
    • 66'
      We have a brief pause in play here now as Morrison seeks medical attention. He looks as though he will be okay to continue, however.
    • 68'
      Good goalkeeping. Taylor's corner delivery is played deep towards the back post. Coloccini heads it back into the danger area and Riviere is there to try and knock it beyond Myhill, but the keeper punches away in commanding fashion.
    • 69'
      SI P. Cissé SO C. Gardner
    • 69'
      SI S. Berahino SO C. Gardner
    • 69'
      S. Berahino enters play, replacing C. Gardner.
    • 69'
      P. Cissé comes on for E. Rivière.
    • 69'
      Changes for both teams now, as Cisse replaces Riviere for Newcastle and Berahino takes the place of Gardner in the West Brom team.
    • 71'
      That Newcastle change has certainly injected a little more belief into the home fans. The striker's introduction was greeted with a huge roar and there seems to be added confidence around the ground now.
    • 73'
      The referee incurs the wrath of Carver again, as Cisse cleanly wins the ball from Berahino but is penalised. The Newcastle bench is up in arms, though they stay out of trouble.
    • 74'
      NEWCASTLE ESCAPE! Morrison hooks the ball into the danger zone from the right and Brunt gets a shot away, which is crucially saved in front of Krul by Dummet. The ball bounces up again and Berahino looks destined to net as he throws himself into the air swings his foot, but his effort smashes agains
    • 76'
      Berahino is proving a bit of a nuisance at the moment. He races on to a fine throughball courtesy of Anichebe and strikes first time with his left foot, but Krul palms it away.
    • 78'
      SI C. McManaman SO C. Gardner
    • 78'
      V. Anichebe is done for the day. C. McManaman is his replacement.
    • 78'
      Another change for West Brom now, as McManaman takes the place of Anichebe in attack.
    • 79'
      R. Taylor is yellow-carded.
    • 80'
      We're into the final ten minutes. Newcastle have struggled to really make the most of their rise in stature, particularly since Cisse's introduction. They still have plenty of time to steal a late winner, though.
    • 82'
      J. Morrison is yellow-carded.
    • 82'
      That's a nasty challenge by Morrison, who catches Taylor with a strong tackle in the middle. He gets a yellow card for his troubles, unsurprisingly.
    • 85'
      SI Sammy Ameobi SO C. Gardner
    • 85'
      Sammy Ameobi comes on for Ayoze Pérez.
    • 85'
      That's a decent chance for the away side. Berahino finds himself in plenty of space on the edge of the box after pouncing on the loose ball and sends a left-footed effort towards goal, but his deflected strike is easily saved by Krul.
    • 86'
      C. Yacob goes into the referee's book.
    • 87'
      Good play by Ameobi, as he strides past Yacob and wins a free-kick just outside the West Brom area, as the sub has his shirt tugged by the Argentine.
    • 88'
      Taylor's free-kick delivery is decent, but West Brom's bigger aerial presence sees it dealt with pretty easily. They clear their lines and Newcastle come back for more, but the attack ends as Cabella sends a 25-yard drive over.
    • 90'
      There will be four minutes added on here.
