    • Scunthorpe United
    • Newcastle United
    • 120' The final whistle sounds to end Scunthorpe's resistance - Newcastle through to the third round of the League Cup 2-1.
    • 120' Marveaux tackles Nelson as Scunny desperately try to create something with seconds left.
    • 120' Newcastle winding down the clock.
    • 120' Two minutes to be added on.
    • 120' Barcham attacking a ball on the far side of the area for Scunthorpe, but Simpson does very well to hold him off.
    • 119' The ball sits up for a Scunthorpe overhead kick, but it is too good to be true... Ameobi counters but Vuckic runs out of space.
    • 118' Best does very well to win the ball off Nolan and uses quick feet to earn space before he is fouled... but not according to the ref.
    • 117' Handball against Vuckic as time ticks down. Halfway into the Newcastle half. Norwood's kick is cleared by Ameobi.
    • 117' Poor delivery from the set-piece and Newcastle clear their lines.
    • 116' It is long but Scunthorpe win a throw-in. Skipper Togwell hauls it in and Newcastle clear desperately through Steven Taylor after Nolan wins a header at the back post.
    • 115' Ryan breaks free down the right and has Duffy and Thompson in the box... his cross is deflected behind for a corner.
    • 114' Six minutes left for Scunthorpe to rescue the game. Newcastle have a free-kick in the opposition half.
    • 113' Not Shola, remember, but his brother Sammy. Sounds like a joke... but he has looked dangerous at times tonight after coming on for Ba.
    • 112' GOAL! 2-1 NEWCASTLE! Ameobi waltzes across the box and smashes the ball into the far corner, halfway up!
    • 112' Lovenkrands on the left with a low cross that Best should surely score from... a touch from a Scunny man takes it away from him.
    • 111' Vuckic with a run down the outside on the left and crosses into the six-yard box - Scunny head behind.
    • 110' Barcham again the danger man, cutting along the byline and delivering low - Coloccini gets a foot to it.
    • 109' Mistake by Krul and Barcham is inside the box on the left... he clips a cross for a team-mate, but Newcastle scramble away.
    • 108' Newcastle attack down the right and the ball comes out to Marveaux on the far side... his strike is blocked by a flying body inside the box!
    • 107' Ryan Taylor penalised for some reason as Duffy jumps over the top of him and crashes down. Norwood's delivery is excellent and Nelson is just short of connecting with it at the far post.
    • 106' The second half of extra time begins, with Newcastle kicking from left to right.
    • 105' Ryan penalised for a push - and it doesn't matter as the whistle sounds to end the first half of extra time.
    • 105' Ameobi makes a mess of controlling the ball inside the box after Simpson's deep cross was headed by a Scunthorpe defender into his path.
    • 104' Ryan with a stupendous effort on the half-volley from 35 yards that Krul somehow beats away! It was dipping with power towards the top corner.
    • 104' Ameobi booked for pulling back Nolan as he broke out of defence.
    • 103' Ryan Taylor sends a wonderful ball from the ball over the top for Best, but the nippy striker fails to react and the chance to go through on goal is lost.
    • 102' Nelson wins the ball above Taylor, but the Newcastle defender does enough to put him off and they have a goal-kick.
    • 101' Scunthorpe win a corner through Nolan on the left. Big chance for them.
    • 100' Simpson has not looked comfortable tonight, but insists he is going nowhere. Simpson settled at Newcastle
    • 99' Marveaux almost loses the ball to allow a Scunthorpe counter, but gets away with it.
    • 98' Looping cross from Duffy easily claimed by Krul. The fans cranking up the volume.
    • 97' It's been a long night, Mister Pardew, but it's not over yet - and we could be set for penalty kicks.
    • 96' Best afforded space to bang a shot at goal from 18 yards, just wide of the post.
    • 95' Apparently the officials are having trouble with their earpieces, as happened in Newcastle-Arsenal the other week... what are they? Bush? Matsui?
    • 94' Krul well out of his goal and Duffy loops a shot towards goal... on target but Taylor is back to head off the line.
    • 94' Best plays in a team-mate, just too far ahead.
    • 93' Sloppy defending on two occasions from Newcastle but Scunny cannot make anything of it.
    • 92' Scunthorpe have one more change to make, but Newcastle have made all three.
    • 91' Thompson with a hasty turn and shot from distance - not a threat to the Newcastle goal.
    • 91' Off we go in the first period of extra time. If it's anything like normal time, we're in for a treat.
    • 90+6' Newcastle with a late attacking throw but Scunthorpe clear. Krul is well out of his goal and under pressure but thumps it out - and we will have extra time.
    • 90+5' Free-kick just inside the Newcastle half as we enter the final minute. Up go the big boys... it is long and out for a goal-kick.
    • 90+4' A long ball out goes all the way through to Krul. You feel that their best bet now is penalties.
    • 90+3' Scunthorpe hold firm in front of their box.
    • 90+2' Barcham in behind on the left, but opts to cut inside and loses out. Scunthorpe chance goes begging.
    • 90+1' Five minutes to be added on. Best chucks himself at a cross and somehow contrives to clear the ball!
    • 90' Cabaye makes it past a man at the far side and is approaching the near post... he smacks it clean across the six-yard box from an acute angle!
    • 90' Gangly attacker Ameobi somehow wriggles away from three home players with the ball and crosses to the back post... corner to Newcastle. Good play.
    • 89' Taylor with a quick free-kick over the top for Lovenkrands to turn and volley... he doesn't quite catch it and Lillis holds the ball gratefully.
    • 88' Scunthorpe change: Mark Duffy on for star man and goalscorer Dagnall, who must be knackered after all that running about.
    • 86' A bit of respite as Taylor is treated. The game headed for extra time, unless we get a late goal...
    • 85' Wright booked for a late tackle on Taylor. Cabaye complaining to the ref.
    • 84' Ameobi plays in Taylor and he goes to ground inside the box! The Newcastle fans and players livid as no penalty is awarded! Thompson put an arm on his back yet he went down too easily... still, it was contact.
    • 83' Vuckic lines one up but the strike is sliced wide of goal.
    • 82' After the corner is taken, Marveaux blasts a shot wide from 25 yards.
    • 81' Cabaye with a shot after juggling from Best, deflected just wide off Sam Togwell.
    • 80' GOAL! 1-1! GREAT STRIKE FROM TAYLOR! He repeats his free-kick heroics against Sunderland with a wonderful strike into the top corner from a central position 25 yards out!
    • 79' Two balls desperately defended by the Iron as Newcastle prise them apart. Nelson pushes Lovenkrands to give the away side a free-kick.
    • 78' Great battles going on in midfield. Newcastle should beat Scunthorpe, but with better finishing they would be in front.
    • 77' Scunthorpe change: Garry Thompson on for Grant.
    • 75' The Argentina defender rises to head just wide at the back post. /// Ark Royal R09: "NUFC are totally clueless."
    • 74' Coloccini marauds down the right and crosses for Best who volleys just over - but a free-kick is awarded as the Argentine was taken out as he crossed. /// footy mad: "ive supported the toon for what 20-25 yrs now and ive­ never seen a lifeless team as we got tonight cmon toon­ get with it"
    • 73' What a save by Krul! Barcham crosses for Dagnall to head for goal... it comes off the shoulder of Coloccini and the keeper is already travelling across goal - but he throws back an arm and deflects the ball away.
    • 72' Scunthorpe hold out and Pardew is looking restless on the touchline.
    • 71' Taylor attacks the corner and it is behind - but another corner is awarded.
    • 71' Marveaux awake to nick the ball and instigate an attack - Lovenkrands shoots and claims handball against Nelson! It is ball to hand - the ball flies just wide and no penalty is given.
    • 70' Newcastle change: Gosling is replaced by Haris Vuckic.
    • 69' And Gosling turns with the ball to have another try... and again it is sliced wide, but this time from outside the box.
    • 68' Gosling is free in the box following good work by Ameobi - but slices his shot wide of the post with the goal at his mercy!
    • 67' Simpson slips to let in Barcham whose shot from an angle is palmed away by Krul! Another good save to keep Newcastle in it.
    • 66' Williamson has a protective boot around his ankle but it is precautionary.
    • 65' Toon change: Sammy Ameobi, brother of Shola, on for Ba in attack.
    • 65' Norwood comes on to the ball in the box and fashions a shot - just wide of the near post. Good arrival and try from the Man Utd youngster.
    • 64' If anyone thinks it's easy to be a physio, you should check out Mick Rathbone's book 'The Smell of Football' which came out recently. A good read about the underbelly of lower league football.
    • 63' Play resumes with him on the sidelines. He is back on quickly - bit of Vaseline probably when it looked like it might have needed a stitch or two.
    • 62' He has opened up his eyelid with blood coming out of it.
    • 61' Niall Canavan takes an elbow - accidental - from an aerial challenge with Best.
    • 60' Simpson with a wayward cross behind the home goal as we reach the hour mark.
    • 59' Wonder if these lads are at the game? Picture from Tyne-Wear derby
    • 58' Ryan with a top cross that again threatens the Newcastle box. Norwood looking for the sensible passes, feeding team-mates in wide positions.
    • 57' Corner for Scunthorpe, defended by Newcastle. End-to-end stuff here.
    • 56' Norwood gets hold of the ball as Scunthorpe seek to launch an attack of their own. He only joined on loan from Man Utd yesterday. Norwood completes Iron switch
    • 55' Best fed on the right with a ball over the top and volleys... well wide of the near post! He should have hit the target and probably scored an equaliser. Still 1-0 Scunny.
    • 54' Scunthorpe claim a free-kick right on the edge of the box, but Salisbury shakes his head... Taylor made no contact on Bobby Grant.
    • 53' Time to draw breath - both sets of fans making noise as the darkness descends and their players give their all.
    • 52' Scunny striker Dagnall on the end of a knockdown and gets an improvised shot away... Krul blocks and grabs on to the ball at the second attempt! What a game this is now!
    • 51' Taylor booked for leaving his foot in on Nolan, who to his credit got on with the game.
    • 50' Lovenkrands put through on the right and should score... he shoots over the top!
    • 49' Newcastle really cranking up the pressure on Scunthorpe - NEWCASTLE SCORE THROUGH BEST! BUT NO - THE FLAG IS UP FOR OFFSIDE!
    • 48' Great chance for Newcastle - Lilllis denies Lovenkrands with a point-blank save after shocking defending by Scunthorpe and the follow-up is wasted by Best!
    • 47' Ba with good work but Newcastle attack is stopped just inside the box. Ba then has another chance and puts the ball near the penalty spot, where Best leaps to head a yard wide.
    • 46' Best tries for a Zidane-style pirouette in the final third and comes up against a League One brick wall.
    • 46' The second half under way at Glanford Park.
    • 45+3' Scunthorpe see out the half - leading 1-0 at the break.
    • 45+2' Marveaux tries to split the home defence with a ball at knee height, defended by Scunthorpe. And on the counter the excellent Oliver Norwood, only a young 'un, is scythed down by Cabaye. Yellow card.
    • 45+1' It is whipped in well but caught by Krul.
    • 45+1' Dagnall chases a ball down into the corner and wins it... Taylor tugs his shirt and Scunthorpe have a free-kick in a good position.
    • 45+1' Gosling with a loose ball forward as the fourth official signals three minutes to be added on.
    • 45' And Pardew won't give him half-time to recover - Steven Taylor is on in his place.
    • 44' He limps gingerly off - it doesn't look like he'll continue.
    • 43' Williamson was going for the ball though and got a touch on it first. He landed awkwardly on his ankle and is still down with the physio.
    • 42' Toon centre-half Mike Williamson goes in with his studs up and is fortunate to only catch Barcham in the back and not the face as he turns away... both players down hurt after the collision.
    • 41' A wake-up call for Newcastle after a prolonged spell of possession. This is shaping up to be a cracking tie.
    • 40' Scunthorpe left winger Barcham fights for the ball and pulls it back low for Ryan to shoot first time from inside the box... great reaction save from Krul!
    • 38' Ba hits the deck when trying to get between two Scunny players but Marveaux is there to pick it up and spin out to the left... with several players in the vicinity, he does well to cross low into the box - the arriving Gosling gets a touch but it cannot be described as a shot.
    • 37' Wright forcing Marveaux backwards towards his own goal, but the whistle goals for a foul. A bit soft but he had a hand on his back.
    • 36' Scunthorpe attack ended when the linesman flags for offside. /// Leyton (before the match): "Do not underestimate scunny , but the TOON should win­ this."
    • 35' Marveaux does very well to control and win a corner off Wright near the by-line. Top tussle those two are having.
    • 34' The Toon trying to put their foot on the ball and calm things down. They are beginning to threaten in attack.
    • 33' What do you think will happen? Where is this tie going? /// Mark: "Demba Ba makes Shola look like Pele"
    • 32' Newcastle are seventh in the top flight having won and drawn their opening two matches. Results
    • 31' Marveaux feeds the ball inside and it ends up with Yohan Cabaye, whose run and shot ends with Lillis scrambling to the foot of that post again to make the save.
    • 30' Top work by Marveaux to thread a pass through for Demba Ba, but he is unable to capitalise in behind... soon after Peter Lovenkrands comes alive on the left, driving inside and shooting wide of the far top corner.
    • 29' Best leaps to head a deep cross for the bottom corner - excellent save at the foot of the post by Lillis!
    • 28' Marveaux keeps the ball well on the right as Toon look to pass it around. Missing Joey Barton perhaps? Barton ponders QPR move
    • 27' Newcastle starting to find routes into the box, but not really comfortable as yet despite a fairly strong line-up.
    • 26' Marveaux takes over the ball and pings a ball straight at Coloccini's head wide on the left - no chance of controlling that one.
    • 25' Long ball from Newcastle gets them nowhere. Then on the right Best sends in a cross to the back stick which Wright is forced to put behind.
    • 24' Andy Barcham hooks a volley just wide after the corner is half-cleared by a hesitant Toon defence.
    • 23' Scunthorpe win a corner as they turn up the pressure again. They have drawn three of their opening four League One matches. Results
    • 22' Ryan Taylor bends the set-piece a yard wide of the upright to the goalie's right. Good try and had Josh Lillis worried for a moment.
    • 21' Marveaux involved again, receiving the ball from Gosling then fouled by Wright 25 yards out while seeking space. Free-kick in the centre of the pitch.
    • 20' Mazy dribble from the former Rennes man, winning a free-kick off Wright which is wasted by Newcastle.
    • 19' Marveaux caught in possession by Andrew Wright in his defensive third but gets away with it.
    • 18' Another dangerous cross into the box from Scunthorpe attacked by Dagnall - Pardew breathes a sigh of relief (probably) as it is cleared at the last.
    • 17' Nothing to do with the game whatsoever, but this is the only Football League ground I've played on. I had a shocker.
    • 16' The home fans are in good voice while the travelling Geordies are giving it back too. Good atmosphere inside this little ground.
    • 15' The Iron fully deserve the lead - it has been all them so far.
    • 14' SCUNTHORPE HAVE THE LEAD! Dagnall! The corner comes over and Coloccini cannot clear fully... Ryan's cross to the far side of the box is headed down by Michael Nelson and there is Dagnall to finish with aplomb eight yards out!
    • 14' Dagnall turns to find space and shoots from 25 yards - it deflects off Fabricio Coloccini and is just wide!
    • 13' Good run from left-back by Nolan, who strikes truly for goal... Tim Krul makes a clean stop.
    • 12' Best driving forward down the middle for the Toon but crowded out by a pair of home defenders.
    • 11' Two years ago these sides were Championship equals, and Scunny have won four of five matches against Newcastle on this ground... however there is now two divisions between them.
    • 10' Alan Knill's men work the ball to Ryan on the right again, and his ball towards Dagnall looks dangerous - Dan Gosling is there to head away and receive a bump that wins a free-kick.
    • 9' Ryan has space as he cuts in from the right, but his shot with the outside of his right foot is some way over the far post.
    • 8' Dagnall twists away after receiving a throw-in to feet but is tackled just inside the box. Positive start from the Iron.
    • 7' Decent passing football from both sides so far.
    • 6' Nolan in amongst the Toon midfielders, battling for the ball.
    • 5' Home striker Chris Dagnall tackled by Marveaux, who may have used his hand a bit. Play continues.
    • 4' On the other flank, Eddie Nolan goes down under a challenge from Danny Simpson but surprisingly referee Graham Salisbury waves away the appeals.
    • 3' Jimmy Ryan wins a throw as Scunny attack down the right. Nothing comes of it.
    • 2' They are in traditional black and white stripes with Scunthorpe wearing their own colours of claret and light blue.
    • 1' Newcastle attacking the goal to our left in the first half.
    • - Toon boss Alan Pardew: "Marveaux is a sharp, technical player who wants to join in with the strikers. He can play combination football - and if gets in between the lines he is really a threat and can finish."
    • - The players emerge with the last of the sunshine on the stands.
    • - For Scunthorpe there are three changes: Niall Canavan replaces Paul Reid, who has a groin injury, in the centre of defence while midfielders Jimmy Ryan and Oliver Norwood come in for Michael O'Connor and Mark Duffy.
    • - Sylvain Marveaux makes his competitive debut for Newcastle in midfield alongside Yohan Cabaye, Dan Gosling and Peter Lovenkrands. Demba Ba and Leon Best are in attack while the only change to the back four is Mike Williamson in for Steven Taylor. Steve Harper is not in the squad as he has an injury. Ole Soderberg is therefore on the bench.
    • - Scunthorpe: Lillis, Wright, Nelson, Canavan, Nolan, Ryan, Togwell, Norwood, Barcham, Grant, Dagnall; subs: Slocombe, Thompson, Duffy, Collins, Godden, Palmer, Thewlis /// Newcastle: Krul, Simpson, Coloccini, Williamson, Ryan Taylor, Marveaux, Gosling, Cabaye, Lovenkrands, Best, Ba; subs: Soderberg, Abeid, Smith, Steven Taylor, Sammy Ameobi, Vuckic, Ferguson /// Referee: Graham Salisbury (Lancashire)
