      FULL TIME! Bournemouth edge their way to a 3-1 victory over Newcastle, with the hosts finding themselves submerged in the relegation mire. Goals from King and Daniels were enough for the visitors, with Taylor opening the scoring with an own goal. Ayoze made things interesting late on, but it's three

      HALF-TIME! Bournemouth go into the break with a 1-0 lead over Newcastle, with a Taylor own goal proving to be the only difference between the two sides. The away side have had much more possession, but the Magpies have had a couple of late chances in the half. McClaren's boys need to come out firing

      TEAM NEWS: Howe opts for a 4-4-2 system, with Josh King and Benik Afobe starting as a striking partnership. Max Gradel starts on the left-hand side, with Matt Ritchie hoping to continue some good recent form on the opposite flank. The back four remains unchanged, with the away side hoping to keep th

      TEAM NEWS: Fabricio Coloccini and Chancel Mbemba are both missing due to injury, with Newcastle fielding a central-defensive two of Steven Taylor and Jamal Lascelles as a result. Emmanuel Riviere is preferred to Aleksandar Mitrovic and Seydou Doumbia up top, with Ayoze Perez slotting in behind the s

      Steve McClaren's men have only lost one of their last six matches at St. James' Park, with the Magpies recording back-to-back home wins recently. Both West Ham and West Brom have fallen to defeats in the North East, but Bournemouth have managed to avoid losses in their last four consecutive away Pre
    • 0'
      Hello and welcome to Bournemouth's trip up north to face Newcastle, with both sides looking to pick up three points in order to battle against relegation. Eddie Howe's men are currently 12 points away from the danger zone, but the Magpies are truly in the mire. The hosts could move out of the bottom
    • 1'
      We are underway in the first half at St. James' Park! Newcastle need three points to lift themselves out of the drop zone, with Bournemouth hoping to continue their recent excellent away form. The form book dictates that this should be very competitive indeed.
    • 3'
      Just wide from Shelvey! A loose ball falls kindly to the ex-Liverpool midfielder, who takes the opportunity to shoot from 25 yards out. His right-footed attempt sweeps wide of the left-hand post, however, with Boruc covering his angles as a precaution. Bournemouth head up the other end, but a cross-
    • 5'
      Gosling drives to the edge of the penalty area, before trying to unleash a powerful effort, but the ex-Newcastle midfielder sees his attempt charged down easily. The away side keep the pressure on, with Afobe cutting a delivery back from the byline, but Lascelles hacks a rushed clearance away.
    • 7'
      Gradel shoots from around 12 yards out, but the former St. Etienne winger is denied by his own player! Surman gets in the way, with the deflection taking the ball curling off target and to safety. Elliot was left flummoxed.
    • 9'
      Afobe takes aim at the back post, but the former Arsenal striker can only lean back and send a terrible effort some way over the crossbar! Newcastle are conceding all of the early chances, with Howe's men coming out of the blocks at real pace.
    • 11'
      Smith is forced into a very rushed clearance, with Bournemouth finally coming under a bit of pressure. Dummett and Janmaat haven't been able to support the attack too much, with the Cherries doing a good job of limiting Newcastle to non-threatening areas of the field.
    • 13'
      This contest has been rather even thus far, with both sides keeping plenty of men behind the ball. Given that both coaches have opted to sit with two banks of four, it has been left up to both striking partnerships to create most of the danger. Ritchie gets a warning from the referee, after a late t
    • 15'
      The opening quarter of an hour hasn't led to Newcastle getting hold of this game, with Bournemouth looking after the ball much better. The ball retention from the Cherries has been characteristic of the visitors' approach under Howe, with his charges looking like the home side.
    • 17'
      Riviere and Ayoze haven't had much of the ball at all, with the duo chasing shadows while trying to press Bournemouth's central defenders. Play is opened out to the left-hand side to Gradel, but rather than force the issue the Cherries are happy to keep possession and look backwards.
    • 19'
      The away side look to break down the right-hand side, but Smith and Ritchie can only combine to the point where the offside flag is raised. Bournemouth are simply holding onto possession and pulling all the strings, with Newcastle sitting back and letting their opponents have the ball.
    • 21'
      A cross from the left-hand side was flicked away by Janmaat, with Lascelles trying to take control in the Newcastle back four. Moments later, a diagonal is pinged into Afobe, but Elliot comes quickly off his line to claim above the former Wolves striker.
    • 23'
      Wide from Riviere! Janmaat cuts a great cross back towards the penalty spot, with the Netherlands international finding his French teammate. The ex-Monaco forward tries to guide a neat finish inside the far upright, but a deflection takes it narrowly wide! The resulting corner then narrowly avoids t
    • 25'
      Afobe breaks away down the right-hand side, but Janmaat covers across brilliantly to ensure that the Englishman isn't able to test Elliot! The Dutchman concedes a corner as a result, but the set-piece can only be flicked into the goalkeeper's awaiting arms by Cook.
    • 27'
      Ayoze is fed into a pocket of space by Wijnaldum, with the Spaniard immediately taking a touch out of his feet and driving towards goal. The Newcastle striker lets fly, but the ball dips some way wide of the top left-hand corner! The Magpies keep the pressure on, but a cross from Sissoko sizzles acr
    • 28'
      GOOOOOOOOOOAL! TAYLOR PRODS HOME AN OWN GOAL! King looks to squeeze a cross in from the left-hand side, with the English defender drawn into trying to deflect a clearance away from danger. Instead, the ball skims off the Newcastle man, before sliding in between a wrongfooted Elliot and the near post
    • 28'
      Gradel goes down heavily after clashing with Janmaat, with the ex-Feyenoord defender getting a bit of a talking to. Bournemouth continue to enjoy the lion's share of possession, but Shelvey and Colback are providing a veritable shield in front of the Magpies' back four.
    • 30'
      Bournemouth threaten again almost instantly, but Elliot is quick off his line to gobble up a slightly heavy throughball. The away side now have something to defend, which suits their calm and patient possession brilliantly. Newcastle will have to keep chasing and working hard.
    • 31'
      SI V. Anita SO P. Dummett
    • 31'
      Anita comes into the fray for the home side, with McClaren opting to make a technical change on the half-hour mark. Dummett jogs off prematurely.
    • 33'
      The Cherries are unafraid to go all the way back to their goalkeeper, with Bournemouth willing to take their time. Afobe is the target of a quick ball into feet, but the Englishman fails to take a sturdy first touch. Lascelles mops up the scraps.
    • 35'
      King sprints down the right-hand side and looks to use his pace, but Lascellas has the legs to keep up and then slide in to dispossess the Norway international. The former Forest centre-back has looked confident during the opening half hour or so.
    • 37'
      Gradel breaks to the left byline, but Janmaat stands up well to his man and robs him of possession. Moments later, King bustles his way beyond two players, but an eventual cross towards the penalty spot is headed well clear. Bournemouth keep their pressure on, with Afobe going down in the box under
    • 39'
      Afobe takes another tumble in the penalty area, but the ex-Arsenal striker doesn't get anything from the referee once again. Taylor slid in on the Bournemouth striker, but failed to get anything of the ball, or even the man. Two potential dives in the space of a few minutes.
    • 41'
      Riviere tries to cut a cross back from the left byline, but the Spaniard's delivery is hurriedly cleared. Bournemouth try to lead a quick break, but a cynical push from Anita stops the move in its tracks. That could be the substitute's final warning already.
    • 43'
      Newcastle work the ball from left to right, but Janmaat loses out while stretching to try and whip in a cross from near the byline. Boruc hasn't had a save to make thus far, with the Polish goalkeeper being a relative spectator.
    • 45'
      Cook picks up a yellow card, with Newcastle now having the potential to play on one of the Bournemouth central defenders.
    • 45'
      Good save from Boruc! Taylor almost manages to make up for his earlier error, with the central defender finding himself in the penalty area! A hooked cross from the right is controlled by the Englishman, who can then only force the Bournemouth shot-stopper into a smart stop.
    • 46'
      SI A. Mitrović SO P. Dummett
    • 46'
      Mitrovic comes into the fray at the break, with the Serbian striker replacing Riviere.
    • 46'
      We are back underway in the second half! The Magpies are trailing, but there's plenty of time for the hosts to turn things around. First of all, however, they'll have to disrupt Bournemouth's calm and tidy use of possession.
    • 48'
      Newcastle get hold of the ball from the offer, with Sissoko fed down the right-hand side. The France international cuts a great pass towards the penalty spot, but Wijnaldum gets his feet in a tangle and the chance disappears. Bournemouth counter, but Gradel shoots well wide.
    • 50'
      Boruc remains a spectator, with the former Celtic goalkeeper not having a great deal to do thus far. Shelvey loses out on possession in a dangerous area, before King is denied by a smart block from Lascelles. The ex-Blackburn Rovers winger had driven into a dangerous area, but was well denied.
    • 52'
      Good save from Elliot! The Newcastle goalkeeper gets down smartly to his left-hand side, with a cross-cum-shot from Smith taking a deflection goalwards. Moments earlier, King tried to feed Afobe into a dangerous area, but the pass from the former was too heavy. Bournemouth are piling on the pressure
    • 54'
      Good block from Taylor! King manages to pick up some scraps on the edge of the penalty area, before dancing the ball onto his left foot! The former Manchester United man shoots from close-range, but Newcastle's talismanic defender was there to deny him. So nearly 2-0!
    • 56'
      Ayoze is the next name in the book, with the Spaniard now unable to be cynical when breaking down any dangerous Bournemouth moves.
    • 56'
      Newcastle put together a neat move, with possession being worked into Ayoze on the edge of the penalty box! The Spaniard shoots, but a wicked deflection takes all of the pace off of the ball. It loops into the awaiting arms of Boruc.
    • 57'
      Gradel sees two half-hearted efforts blocked in quick succession, before the Ivorian winger goes down in the penalty area! The referee points for goal-kick, however, rather than a spot-kick. During the next move, Smith drives down the right and fizzes in a low cross, but Janmaat controls and calmly
    • 59'
      Newcastle just haven't been able to take this game by the scruff of the neck, with both sides still trading chances pretty freely. Ayoze has had a couple of half-chances, but generally the Magpies have looked low on ideas. Wijnaldum and Sissoko haven't had much service, either.
    • 61'
      SI M. Pugh SO P. Dummett
    • 61'
      Pugh comes into the game on the left-hand side of midfield, with Gradel trudging off.
    • 63'
      Mitrovic turns on the edge of the penalty area, before unleashing an excellent effort! The ball swerves and dips just beyond the far post, with Boruc looking very worried indeed. Newcastle need more of the same if they are to turn this scoreline around.
    • 65'
      Janmaat manages to work an angle to shoot, with the Dutchman thundering a powerful effort straight at Boruc! The Polish goalkeeper parries behind for a corner, but the set-piece is cleared easily. Suddenly, Newcastle are making a bit more of a fight of this.
    • 67'
      Mitrovic drives at the heart of the Bournemouth defence, before switching possession out to Sissoko on the right-hand side. The former Toulouse midfielder isn't afraid to shoot and belts an effort at Boruc, but the former Celtic goalkeeper grips onto the ball well. Neat handling.
    • 68'
      Daniels drifts infield from the left, before trying to stab a throughball into the path of King. Fortunately for the hosts, the pass is far too heavy and Elliot collects. Newcastle respond by breaking with Mitrovic, but the substitute can only see a shot well blocked after beating two defenders insi
    • 69'
      SI R. Aarons SO P. Dummett
    • 69'
      SI L. Grabban SO P. Dummett
    • 69'
      Grabban freshens up the forward line, with Afobe trudging off.
    • 69'
      Aarons comes into the game for the hosts, with Sissoko taking his leave after an energetic performance.
    • 70'
      G J. King Assist P. Dummett
    • 70'
      Ritchie slides a neat pass into his teammate, but King contributes the finishing touches.
    • 70'
      GOOOOOOOOOOOAL! KING MAKES IT 2-0! The Norway international manages to squeeze home a near-post finish, after Newcastle fail to clear their lines. That could be that, as far as the Magpies are concerned, with the ex-Manchester United man thundering an emphatic finish into the ceiling of the net.
    • 72'
      We're into the final 20 minutes at St. James' Park, with Newcastle having a veritable mountain to climb now. Two goals is a big ask, considering that Boruc hasn't had any very tough stops to make. Howe's men can afford to sit back and pick their moments to get forward.
    • 74'
      Howe is pacing around his technical area in nervous fashion, with the Cherries close to pulling off yet another excellent away result in the Premier League. This win will see Bournemouth go 11 points clear of their adversaries.
    • 75'
      Gosling gets a yellow card against his former employers, with the ex-Blackpool man needing to be careful for the dying stages.
    • 77'
      The hosts need to somehow come up with at least a consolation goal, but Bournemouth are still easily able to retain possession and keep their opponents chasing. McClaren doesn't have much left in reserve on the bench to alter the flow of this contest, either.
    • 80'
      G Ayoze Pérez Assist P. Dummett
    • 80'
      Shelvey carves the visiting defence apart with a long, searching throughball. Great vision from the England international.
    • 80'
      GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! AYOZE MAKES IT 2-1! A glimmer of hope for Newcastle! The Spaniard is fed through on goal by a wonderful throughball, before tucking a neat finish over the sprawling body of Boruc! Very cool finish from the young forward.
    • 82'
      We're into the final 10 minutes now, with Bournemouth facing a nervy end to this contest. All that Newcastle need to do is keep probing for an opening, with any openings easily exploitable by the deep-lying presence of Shelvey.
    • 84'
      Grabban stings Elliot's palms with a long-range drive, but nobody manages to react quickly enough to pounce on the loose ball. Narrowly over five minutes are left on the clock, with time running out slightly for the Magpies. The Newcastle goalkeeper is asked to make another save moments later, with
    • 86'
      Just wide from Grabban! The former Norwich striker takes aim at the back post, but can only drag a terrible effort just beyond the far upright! Newcastle need to respond and muster up a goal, as teams around them in the relegation dogfight are winning.
    • 88'
      Just wide from Wijnaldum! The Netherlands international is fed in behind enemy lines by Ayoze, with a wicked deflection taking the ball just shy of the near post. Boruc was entirely wrongfooted. So nearly an equaliser.
    • 89'
      Grabban picks up a late booking, with the Englishman definitely getting heavily involved since entering the field of play.
    • 90'
      G C. Daniels Assist P. Dummett
    • 90'
      Pugh slides a neat pass infield to his left-back, with his overlapping teammate doing the rest.
    • 90'
      GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! DANIELS PUTS THE GAME TO BED! The Bournemouth left-back scampers infield from the left, before rifling a low finish into the bottom-right corner! That will seal the three points for the Cherries.
    • 45'
      We're into the first of two minutes of stoppage time.
    • 90'
      SI S. Distin SO P. Dummett
    • 90'
      Howe looks to shut up shop, with Distin introduced for Ritchie. An extra defender on the field.
    • 90'
      We're into the first of four minutes of stoppage time.
