  • Live Commentary

    Time:90'
    • Newcastle United
    • West Ham United
    • 90' That's it! Alan Wiley brings a cracking game to an end. It finishes 2-2.
    • 90' The resulting corner is headed back into the six-yard box from the far post. It falls for Owen - but he heads over the bar!
    • 90' Jonas almost wins it for Newcastle! He races into the West Ham box on the left, beats his marker and shoots - but it's deflected inches wide.
    • 90' Owen turns in the West Ham box, but Collins makes a strong challenge.
    • 90' They do just that - but Given collects it. Three minutes of added time to come.
    • 89' West Ham win a free-kick just inside the Newcastle half on the left. They'll probably lump this into the box.
    • 88' Carroll fails to force a corner on the right wing as Newcastle attack. Ilunga wins a goal kick.
    • 86' This could go either way. Newcastle are pressing but West Ham look dangerous on the break. N'Zogbia miscontrols in the West Ham box to lose the attacking momentum for the hosts.
    • 85' Zola makes West Ham's final change. Mullins replaces Noble in midfield.
    • 84' Great defending from Bassong! The defender makes a crucial tackle on Carlton Cole as the striker shapes to shoot on the edge of the six-yard box.
    • 83' A slip by Steven Taylor lets Boa Morte break into the Newcastle box - but he's offside!
    • 82' Ilunga makes a last-ditch interception to prevent Owen being presented with a golden chance.
    • 80' Odd decision by Zola. He brings Bellamy off for Di Michele.
    • 79' Newcastle fans are urging their team to go for a winner.
    • 77' GOAL!! Newcastle equalise! It's Andy Carroll who guides a header into the net after latching on to a Duff cross from left. What a game.
    • 74' West Ham make a substitution. Jack Collison is replaced by Luis Boa Morte.
    • 71' Again Newcastle fail to make the corner count. The ball is cleared to Owen just inside the West Ham box. He half-volleys goalwards, but it's blocked and cleared.
    • 70' N'Zogbia almost scores a flukey goal as his cross from the left arrows for Green's goal - but the keeper tips it over for a corner.
    • 67' Lucas Neill scores a spectacular own-goal as he slices a Coloccini cross from the right into his own net - but Alan Wiley rules it out for a push by Steven Taylor on James Collins as the cross came in. Neill is a very lucky boy!
    • 66' Given gets lucky as he rushes off his line to collect a long ball. He misjudges it, almost allowing Cole in for a tap-in. But he just manages to clear!
    • 65' The corner's cleared again. Newcastle haven't made the most of all these set-pieces.
    • 64' N'Zogbia works himself into space on the edge of the box and shoots. It takes a deflection and goes wide. Corner.
    • 62' Newcastle make a change. Wantaway winger N'Zogbia replaces Geremi in midfield.
    • 62' Jonas passes the ball straight into touch - the St James' faithful groan with frustration.
    • 60' Newcastle attack after the corner is initially cleared, but the ball eventually goes for a goal kick.
    • 59' Upson makes a vital tackle on Andy Carroll as the striker looks to latch on to a cross from the left. The ball spins out for a Newcastle corner. Excellent defending from the England man.
    • 57' Newcastle will have to change things around here.
    • 55' GOAL! Carlton Cole continues his scoring streak with a fine left-footed volley into the roof of the Newcastle goal after bringing down an Ilunga ball into the box. Another quality goal from West Ham. It had been coming.
    • 53' Newcastle clear from the corner.
    • 52' Collison works himself space on the edge of the Newcastle area and shoots - it's deflected for a corner.
    • 50 Now Mark Noble shoots from inside the box after being teed up by Cole. A more straight-forward save for Given this time though.
    • 49' Another great save from Given! Bellamy dribbled the ball to the byline on the right, cut the ball back into the six-yard box for Jack Collison breaking from midfield. The youngster's shot seems certain to hit the back of the net, but Given reacts brilliantly to get a firm hand on the ball. What a save.
    • 48' West Ham have started brightly - Carlton Cole tests Given with a curler from the edge of the box. The keeper saves comfortably though.
    • 46' Bellamy immediately causes more problems for the Magpies defence. He races on to a high Parker through ball and appears to be wrestled to the ground by Bassong. West Ham appeal for a penalty but Alan Wiley says no. I reckon that should have been a penalty - poor decision.
    • 46' The sides are back out for the second half, and Newcastle kick-off.
    • 45' Alan Wiley brings an eventful half to an end. Newcastle deserve to be ahead, but West Ham almost took the lead through Noble on the cusp of half-time. Join us in 15 minutes for the second-half.
    • 44' Newcastle win a corner. Guthrie picks out Carroll on the far post with the cross from the left, but the striker heads well over the crossbar.
    • 42' Crucial save by Shay Given! Newcastle's offside trap goes awry, and Mark Noble finds himself one on one with the Magpies keeper. He places a shot low, but Given parries. The rebound falls for Bellamy, who shoots from a tight angle into the side-netting.
    • 40' Sorry to keep mentioning Carroll's barnet, but it really does look daft. You'll see what I mean if you see the highlights tonight. Anyway, the striker shows great skill to pluck a high ball from the sky on the left wing. He then crosses deep towards Duff on the right, but it's too hard. West Ham clear.
    • 39' Newcastle appeal for a penalty again! Andy Carroll took a tumble in the box challenging for a Duff cross from the right. The replay shows that the braided youngster took a massive dive there. Boo!! Alan Wiley rightly dismissed Newcastle's appeals.
    • 37' West Ham deal well with the set-piece again.
    • 36' Jonas's effort took a deflection, so it's a corner to Newcastle.
    • 35' So close! Geremi's shot from the free-kick hits the wall, then Jonas slams the rebound inches wide of the left post!
    • 34' Newcastle win a free-kick in a shooting position 25 yards from Rob Green's goal.
    • 34' Green hurls the ball out to Bellamy on the left wing, but the Hammers break is cut short by a Bassong foul on the Welshman.
    • 33' Green is commanding in his box again, collecting the cross easily.
    • 32' Newcastle force a corner on the left.
    • 31' Damien Duff hits a shot straight at Green from the edge of the box.
    • 29' GOAL! West Ham equalise against the run of play! Craig Bellamy it is who scores on his return to St James'. He played a lovely one-two with Scott Parker on the edge of the Newcastle box, then dinked the ball over the on-rushing Shay Given. Great goal.
    • 28' Geremi wastes the free-kick again though - he curls it over everyone and into Green's grateful grasp.
    • 27' Behrami fouls Jonas 40 yards from the Newcastle goal.
    • 24' Snoop Doggy Carroll almost makes it two! The Newcastle striker is teed up by a deep cross from the right but he heads the ball narrowly wide when well placed to score.
    • 22' Guthrie picks up the first booking of the game for a late tackle.
    • 21' An important piece of fashion news for Newcastle fans - Andy Carroll is sporting an extraordinary braided hair-do for the afternoon... like a Geordie Snoop Doggy Dogg.
    • 19' How will West Ham react to that?
    • 18' GOAL! Michael Owen scores. He picks up the ball on the edge of the area on the left. He cuts in towards goal and slams a low right-footed shot into Robert Green's bottom-right corner! Great finish, although Green shouldn't really be beaten at his near post like that.
    • 15' Geremi wastes the resulting free-kick.
    • 14' Upson catches Owen badly as the two challenge for a high through ball in the West Ham half. The defender is lucky to avoid a caution.
    • 12' West Ham work a headed opening for Behrami as a deep cross from the left picks him out. But his header is cleared.
    • 10' Owen hits the post for Newcastle! The erstwhile England striker controlled a Jonas cross from the left nicely at the near post and slid the ball for the far corner - but his low, side-footed effort hits the post and is cleared.
    • 9' Deary me... the early punt forward from West Ham sees Bellamy caught offside again. Frustrating from Bellamy, although you can see Newcastle's defenders getting that high line wrong at some point this afternoon.
    • 9' Newcastle appeal for a penalty! A Duff cross from the right clearly strikes Collins on the arm in the West Ham box. The referee rules that it wasn't deliberate though - quite rightly, too.
    • 8' And Bellamy is caught offside in exactly the same way again. He might want to hold his runs for a couple of seconds.
    • 7' Bellamy is caught offside again as West Ham look to release him.
    • 6' The delivery fails to beat the first defender though - poor.
    • 6' Jonas comes inside off the left flank and is hacked down by Lucas Neill. Newcastle will look to cross the ball into the box from the resulting set-piece.
    • 5' More good play from the Hammers. Bellamy and Noble show some nice touches on the edge of the Newcastle box, but they fail to find a penetrating final pass. Newcastle clear.
    • 4' A long punt forward by a West Ham defender is headed for Bellamy, but the striker is offside.
    • 3' West Ham have started confidently, stroking the ball around in midfield.
    • 2' Interesting to see that Charles N'Zogbia, who seems determined to engineer a move out of Newcastle, is dropped to the bench today.
    • 1' Craig Bellamy and Carlton Cole kick-off to get us under way.
    • - Team news: Newcastle bring Jonas and Geremi into the side, but Andy Carroll continues up front after starting last week's FA Cup draw with Hull. West Ham start with former Magpies Bellamy and Parker despite them both being linked with a move to Man City, but Kieron Dyer doesn't make a return to St James' and is left out of the squad.
