    • 85' Adam again gives the ball away on the edge of the box, but gets away with it! Ameobi seemed ready to pull the trigger but it was blocked.

    • 83' Blackpool change: and off comes Phillips, with Luke Varney on in his stead.
    • 82' If Nile Ranger comes on he will surpass Phillips as the most-used substitute in the top flight in 2010-11 with 20.

    • 80' Blackpool may be running out of ideas. I can see this ending 1-1. But the tension is still very much in evidence.
    • 79' Taylor-Fletcher pushes Williamson in the box and the header from the Blackpool striker seems to come off his opponent's arm... despite cries for a penalty, the foul goes correctly to Newcastle.
    • 78' Coloccini furious after he is denied a throw which was taken quickly by Blackpool.
    • 77' Have a look to see how close it is at the bottom. Table
    • 76' Newcastle have had more possession but used it less well.
    • 75' The Blackpool freefall has seen them win only once in 13 league matches - a 3-1 at home against Tottenham in February. They want three points badly.
    • 74' Southern wins a throw off Enrique on the right. Newcastle win the ball back from the second throw.
    • 73' Long ball forward as Blackpool throw everything into their survival bid, defended by Newcastle.
    • 72' A third corner of the day for Newcastle, compared with the four of Blackpool. Headed away and here come the home side... Phillips gets a cross in but it is too long.
    • 71' Enrique's cross following a Gutierrez ball down the line is put behind by Evatt.
    • 70' Nolan, making his 300th PL appearance, playing through the middle but blocked out.
    • 69' Ireland gets his studs stuck as he seeks to finish a cross inside the box - the ball bobbles harmlessly wide.
    • 68' There have been two goals in the Wigan game... Premier League latest
    • 67' Blackpool have scored and conceded in each of their 17 league home matches this season.
    • 66' Adam looking to strike from 18 yards after Phillips's one-two with Campbell fell to him via a deflection... it is off the base of the far post!!! The ball ricochets to safety and the next shot from Southern is wide.
    • 65' Another poor free-kick from Barton, headed away.
    • 64' Tiote annoyed after he was fouled by Taylor-Fletcher in midfield.
    • 63' Crainey with an inch-perfect cross for Taylor-Fletcher and his header is glanced just over the bar! So close! All Blackpool.
    • 62' Newcastle change: Stephen Ireland on for Lovenkrands.
    • 61' Vaughan races into the box from the left and looks to pick out the run of a team-mate - but the squared ball beats everybody!
    • 60' The Toon have won one of their last six league matches - 4-1 at home to Wolves on April 2 - while Blackpool have not won in any of their last six, losing the last three and conceding three goals in each of these defeats.
    • 59' Adam conducting the match now. However Newcastle break out and Ameobi threatens to wriggle free... Evatt with the challenge to deny Lovenkrands.
    • 58' Being further to the right, the right foot of Eardley is preferred... and it is a yard or so wide of the top corner.
    • 57' Tiote penalised for an aerial challenge a few yards outside the box. He is unhappy about it.
    • 56' Adam bends it low around the wall and also past the post. Krul leaves it well alone.
    • 55' Yellow card for Tiote after he took out a flying Campbell. Prime position for Adam.
    • 54' Adam brings the ball through the middle and finds Phillips on the right... he fails to put the ball into the box.
    • 53' Barton's kick from a dangerous area on the left is headed away by Keith Southern, standing 10 yards away.
    • 52' Ameobi cannot find a way through the home defence then Adam wastes a pass after taking possession. Baptiste penalised for blocking off Ameobi when he regains the ball.
    • 51' Adam sends Blackpool on to the attack, with Phillips slaloming towards the box on the right. His cross is for Campbell but headed away.
    • 50' His former strike partner Michael Owen, now at Manchester United, has hit back at criticism from Newcastle fans following his return to St James' Park this week. Owen hits back at Toon fans
    • 49' Ameobi lets fly with his left foot from 25 yards, a couple of feet over the top corner. Not a bad try.
    • 48' Blackpool have the equal-fewest victories (2) and most defeats (12) in the division in 2011. They have conceded 40 goals in their 16 PL matches this year. No other club has conceded more than 28.
    • 47' No changes at the break. Ameobi's cross is deflected into the box then hacked clear.
    • 46' The second half underway at Bloomfield Road.
    • - Check out the half-time scores. Premier League latest
    • - The irony is that, to rehash a stat from the start of the match, Atkinson has awarded more penalties (14) in the division this season than any other referee.
    • 45+2' As the clock ticks over the minute mark and Krul takes the goal-kick, Atkinson blows for half-time. The ref is met with a wall of abuse for his refusal to award Blackpool a penalty.
    • 45+1' Campbell at the back post to meet a Phillips cross... he is just too wide and the header is into the side-netting.
    • 45' Only one minute to be added on.
    • 44' Barton has now provided eight league assists this season - no other current Newcastle player has more than four.
    • 43' A clearance off the line from Enrique as Baptiste fires a shot bound for the bottom corner through a sea of bodies! Newcastle hanging on! Evatt headed to his fellow defender and the strike was a half-volley.
    • 42' Almost a goal for Blackpool! Campbell backheels for Ian Evatt down the left and Krul is out to make another point-blank stop! Baptiste then screws just wide from 10 yards out.
    • 41' Adam with a free-kick from the right inside the away team's half. Headed away.
    • 40' Interesting fact regarding Lovenkrands: Newcastle's last three league victories have all included a goal from him.
    • 39' Tiote tackles Taylor-Fletcher who has a kick at him as he passes backwards. No punishment for the veteran home forward.
    • 38' Free-kick from deep for Newcastle runs through to Gilks but not before Ameobi seemed set to get a shot away free in the box.
    • 37' Eardley charges down an Enrique clearance and the Blackpool man then chases down Fabricio Coloccini, who finds Krul under pressure. He clears.
    • 36' Enrique buys Newcastle a breather by playing back to Krul. His eventual long kick is too long for Ameobi.
    • 35' Time for a deep breath... Blackpool right back in this match now and should be 2-1 up really.
    • 34' Simpson inside his box slips and that is handball! The ref again denies the Seasiders a penalty! That one was stonewall and Holloway looks about ready to kill something.
    • 33' Adam's corner was met with the striker's thigh at the near post and Enrique headed away - from behind the line, said the linesman! Difficult to tell... the score is 1-1.
    • 32' GOAL FOR BLACKPOOL! Campbell has it!
    • 31' Replays indicate that Krul in fact got the ball... after the man. Holloway was furious.
    • 30' Enrique with a suicide pass across goal and Campbell is taken out by Krul! Penalty surely! But no - Atkinson waves it away!
    • 29' Phillips dinks through for Campbell and Krul is out like lightning to block! Great save just inside the box!
    • 28' The away side failed to score in consecutive matches for the first time this season after the goalless draw with Man Utd in midweek. But they have put that right today.
    • 27' Another corner, driven low by Adam... Phillips is there eight yards out and blazes over! It took a nasty bobble just before it got to him - not his fault. But a chance nonetheless.
    • 26' Williamson heads away the set-piece. Newcastle have had 58 per cent of the possession in the last five minutes.
    • 25' The wind has been well and truly taken out of Blackpool's sails. But the ball is given away by the away side and here come Holloway's men... Tiote eventually puts behind for a corner after Adam found the run of Campbell.
    • 24' Wolves and Wigan are the other two clubs also in big danger featuring in three o'clock kick-offs. And one of them has scored. Premier League latest
    • 23' Barton with an awful cross that flies well behind the home goal. He grins.
    • 22' The home side have now conceded in their last 17 league matches, since a 2-0 victory at Sunderland on December 28. They are one of two top-flight clubs without a clean sheet in 2011 – the other is West Brom. They have conceded 70 league goals in their 33 matches – the seventh-most ever by a PL club at this stage of the season. The top 11 clubs who conceded the most goals at this stage of the season in the PL era all went on to be relegated.
    • 21' Vaughan takes out Nolan but play continues. Not too many complaints from the Toon captain, but it was a bad tackle.
    • 20' Nolan has space and picks out the run of Ameobi through the Blackpool backline... the offside flag goes up. He looked level.
    • 19' Holloway insists he is not worrying about the prospect of losing Adam in the summer because the situation is beyond his control. Perhaps that will make it easier to bear... sorry, cheap shot. Holloway: Adam future out of my hands
    • 18' A shocker for Charlie Adam! After Crainey nicked the ball over a Newcastle man and passed to the mercurial midfielder, he tried to return the pass in his own third - and instead found Barton. He fed Lovenkrands who took the ball on and let fly low into the near post from just outside the box.
    • 17' GOAL FOR NEWCASTLE! Lovenkrands with a low drive for 1-0!
    • 16' In the last five minutes Blackpool have had 57 per cent of the possession. End-to-end stuff so far, just lacking a goal.
    • 15' Stephen Crainey sent away down the left for Blackpool, crossing low between defence and goalkeeper for Taylor-Fletcher... he slides but cannot quite get there to stab it home.
    • 14' Blackpool manager Holloway hopes to revive the spirit of last year's promotion charge to beat relegation this season. Holloway looks to revive winning spirit
    • 13' Campbell twice tries to jet past Newcastle players but is tackled. At the other end Ameobi again stumbles in a one-on-one situation with a defender.
    • 12' Blackpool and Newcastle United have met 51 times in the league. Blackpool have won 23, Newcastle United 21 and seven draws. Blackpool are looking to complete the league double over Newcastle for the first time since 1957-58.
    • 11' Krul dives out to punch and Newcastle counter... Shola Ameobi nicks the ball past Alex Baptiste and is in with Lovenkrands square in the box... he opts to come inside, stumbles and a grateful Gilks picks it up.
    • 10' Newcastle look clueless in the opening stages while Blackpool are trying to pass their way into the box and are seeing much more of the ball.
    • 9' Nolan sold short by Cheik Tiote and Gary Taylor-Fletcher takes the ball on... his shot from 25 yards is low but wide of the post. The home fans get behind their team.
    • 8' Barton, off the pitch, eventually dusts himself off as Blackpool continue the match. Campbell goes down in the box to shouts for a penalty but Mike Williamson didn't touch him.
    • 7' Keith Southern wins the ball off Joey Barton and looks to play it down the line... the midfielder barges into him and hurts himself in the process.
    • 6' Ian Holloway looks bemused on the touchline after DJ Campbell is flagged offside. Campbell convinced over survival chances
    • 5' Adam with a quick-thinking pass for Phillips down the right, cut out by a Newcastle man.
    • 4' Phillips, making a rare start for the home side, almost in behind from a long ball but it just runs wide. He looks for Neal Eardley but the pass is poor.
    • 3' Loose cross from Blackpool goes behind as they seek a route into the box.
    • 2' Jonas Gutierrez feeds Jose Enrique down the left and he uses a trick to come inside and shoot... tame and into the arms of Matthew Gilks.
    • 1' And away we go, Newcastle in black and white stripes kicking from right to left.
    • 15:00 The referee is Martin Atkinson, of West Yorkshire. Atkinson has sent off more players (10) and awarded more penalties (14) in the division this season than any other referee.
    • 14:57 The teams emerge to a rapturous welcome in the sunshine.
    • 14:50 A crucial afternoon for Blackpool's survival chances at Bloomfield Road after something of a freefall. They are third from bottom but the bottom five teams are separated by only three points. You expect that the Toon Army are safe though. Pardew: We could be safe
    • 14:45 Only in four of their 17 Premier League campaigns have Newcastle had fewer points after 33 games. Pardew calls for desire from players
    • 14:40 Blackpool substitutes have contributed five assists this season; only Chelsea’s replacements have been as productive. No Premier League player this season has been brought on a substitute more often than Matt Phillips. Blackpool squad page
    • 14:35 The Seasiders’ last three league games at Bloomfield Road have ended as 3-1 defeats, but Newcastle have failed to score in four of their last five Premier League away games. Overall, the Magpies have now gone three hours without a Premier League goal. Premier League results and fixtures
    • 14:34 Newcastle keeper Steve Harper is out with a knee injury so Tim Krul continues in goal for the Magpies. Captain Kevin Nolan returns after a two-match suspension. Hatem Ben Arfa is yet to come back from his horrific broken leg, while Leon Best and Alan Smith (both ankle), Dan Gosling (knee) and Danny Guthrie (shin) are also absent. Nolan back for Magpies
    • 14:32 Blackpool captain and talisman Charlie Adam returns after a foot injury as the Tangerines look to beat the drop in their first Premier League season. He is partnered in midfield by David Vaughan after the Welshman's hip problem. Chris Basham remains out with a broken leg while David Carney is missing with a shoulder injury. Adam fit for Seasiders
    • 14:30 Blackpool: Gilks, Eardley, Baptiste, Evatt, Crainey, Vaughan, Adam, Southern, Phillips, Campbell, Taylor-Fletcher; Subs: Kingson, Ormerod, Varney, Cathcart, Puncheon, Reid, Beattie /// Newcastle: Krul, Simpson, Williamson, Coloccini, Jose Enrique, Barton, Nolan, Tiote, Gutierrez, Ameobi, Lovenkrands; Subs: Soderberg, Perch, Ryan Taylor, Ireland, Steven Taylor, Ranger, Kuqi
    • 14:25 Blackpool (47) have scored more league goals than Liverpool (46) this season. Blackpool will set a new Premier League record (17 matches) if both they and Newcastle score in this match. Premier League table
    • 14:20 The last three top-flight meetings between Blackpool and Newcastle have all ended as away wins. Blackpool team page
    • 14:15 Newcastle have lost both of their previous matches this season against their fellow promoted sides: 2-0 at home to Blackpool and 3-1 at West Brom. Newcastle team page
