    • - Don't forget you can watch highlights of this match, along with every Premier League game, from 00:01 on Monday morning (UK only).
    • 90+6' The final whistle goes, and Stoke have come from behind to move out of the bottom three!
    • 90+6' The corner is repelled but here come Newcastle again.
    • 90+5' Perch fires in an effort that is blocked by Huth and deflected wide for a Newcastle corner!
    • 90+3' Gutierrez has looked lively since coming on, and he is unlucky that his battling at the corner flag only results in a goal kick.
    • 90+1' Gutierrez weaves his way down the left and squares a pass for Nolan... sidefooted wide of the target! Nolan had to hit his effort first time, but he should have tested Sorensen.
    • 90' The fourth offical raises the board... six minutes of added time! Fuller's injury must account for most of that.
    • 89' Jose Enrique is teed up on his left foot but he fires his strike into the crowd.
    • 88' Newcastle resume their dominance of possession, but Stoke are happy to contain them and hit on the break.
    • 86' Just as with the 2-1 win over Aston Villa last week, Stoke have come from a goal down to take a late lead. Can they hang on?
    • 85' GOAL!! The corner comes in and Perch tries to get in front of Huth at the near post but he heads past Krul and into his own net!
    • 84' Antoehr Delap throw is repelled for yet another, deep in the final third this time. Williamson heads behind for a corner.
    • 83' Delap launches in a long throw but even he was too far out to trouble the Newcastle defence. Perch heads away and Delap gets another chance.
    • 80' Ameobi hoists a high ball intot he box. Carroll forces Sorensen to drop his catch but Stoke hack it clear.
    • 79' Barton sends a dangerous ball into the box for Ameobi, but again Shawcross reacts quickest.
    • 78' There's a really nice tempo to this match now. Carroll sneaks past shawcross but Wilkinson covers to concede the corner, which Stoke clear.
    • 77' Perch has a decent crack from the edge of the box, but Sorensen saves comfortably.
    • 76' Routledge gets his cross in but Shawcross can head clear. Good pressure from Newcastle now.
    • 75' Routledge runs to reach Barton's long pass and the ball ricochets off Wilkinson and almost loops over Sorensen, but the keeper catches it right on the line.
    • 74' Ameobi scored a quality brace in the Carling Cup win over Cheslea in midweek, and gets a good reception from the home crowd.
    • 73' Newcastle substitution: Shola Ameobi replaces Tiote.
    • 71' Fuller has been taken to hospital with a suspected dislocated shoulder.
    • 70' Gutierrez pings in a decent cross and Carroll catches it with a decent volley but it's right at Sorensen, who dives on the ball before Nolan can slide in.
    • 69' Fuller is still being led around the pitch. Physios are gingerly holding his arm up. The Jamaica international could be facing a while out of action.
    • 68' That's the fourth straight game in which Jones has scored for Stoke. He's quickly becoming a favourite with Potters fans.
    • 67' GOAL!! Huth heads the cross from the free-kick back across goal and Kenwyne Jones is thrid time lucky with his header! Stoke are level!
    • 67' Stoke substitution: Gudjohnsen replaces Fuller.
    • 66' It's not looking good for Fuller. He walks off rather than use the stretcher, but his game is over.
    • 65' Fuller beats Jose Enrique with a smart turn on the wing but the defender hauls him down and Stoke have a free-kick. Fuller landed awkwardly, it looks like he may have hurt his shoulder or collar bone.
    • 64' Jones meets the inviting delivery and he sees his header crash off the crossbar! That's twice he's hit the frame of the goal with a header now!
    • 63' Jones is pulled back and Stoke have a free-kick in a good position. Huth and Shawcross come up for the dead ball. Whitehead will send it in...
    • 62' Newcastle substitution: Jonas Gutierrez replaces Ben Arfa.
    • 61' Fuller is penalised for an aerial foul on Tiote.
    • 60' Coloccini is down receiving treatment following that incident. The Argetnina defender took a knock to the head, but he should be OK to continue.
    • 59' Jones directs a header off the foot of the near post! The rebound comes out to Fuller, who stabs his shot wide! Great chance to level for Stoke!
    • 58' Ben Arfa is caught offside as he looks to control a long ball forward.
    • 57' Stoke substituion: Delap replaces Whelan.
    • 56' The corner is hit deep and Stoke don't clear their lines. Eventually play is forced all the way back to Krul.
    • 55' Coloccini evades pressure from Jones with a neat backheel down the line. Carroll chases a long ball intot he box and Wilkinson concedes a corner.
    • 54' Shawcross heads wide of the far post from Etherington's delivery.
    • 53' Fuller drops deep to win the bal and find Etherington. Play comes across for Walters and Jose Enrique concedes another corner. This is much better from Stoke.
    • 52' Lawrence leaps highest in the box but Etherington's corner goes over everyone.
    • 51' Fuller already making his presence felt as he bears down on Coloccini. Perch than has to track Etherington and concedes a corner with a good challenge.
    • 50' Good work from Carroll down the wing as he gets to the ball ahead of Huth. The return pass to him is just out of his reach though.
    • 49' Stoke substitution: Fuller replaces Diao.
    • 47' Tony Pulis has Ricado Fuller, Eidur Gudjohnsen and Rory Delap on the bench is he wants to change things around, though Tuncay Sanli is not included in the squad.
    • 46' The second half is underway!
    • 45+2' The referee blows for half-time, and Newcastle have a deserved lead.
    • 45' Two minutes of stoppage time are indicated by the fourth official.
    • 44' Kevin Nolan's third goal of the season means Stoke have conceded the first goal in every league game they have played this season.
    • 43' GOAL!! Nolan fires the ball low into the right-hand corner, and runs off celebrating by flapping wings like a chicken! What's all that about then?
    • 41' PENALTY! Jose Enrique's cross is going right at Sorensen but Huth still brings down Carroll! Stonewall penalty. Nolan places the ball on the spot...
    • 40' Carroll shields the ball and wins a throw from Shawcross, who has done a pretty decent number on the Toon striker so far.
    • 39' Routledge swingas in a cross for Carroll but the big striekr is beaten in the air. Ben Arfa surges into the area and has a shot blocked.
    • 38' Diao is penalised for a foul on Nolan on the halfway line.
    • 36' Ben Arfa fires well high and wide. Kevin Nolan is standing behind the wall, facing Sorensen whenever Newcastle have a free-kick. Very odd.
    • 35' Ben Arfa comes forward and dinks a pass through for Carroll. It's blocked by the arm of Huth, and antoher free-kick for the Magpies.
    • 34' Newcastle are looking to win back-to-back Premier League matches for the first time in almost two years – since winning 3-0 at Portsmouth and 2-1 at home against Tottenham in December 2008. (Infostrada)
    • 33' Barton fires his free-kick into the wall.
    • 32' Barton's cross is headed away by Collins. Whelan fould Nolan as the pair go for the loose ball, and Newcastle have another free-kick, in a similar position to the last one.
    • 31' Whitehead brings down Jose enrique on the right wing with a clumsy tackle. Hands are shaken, no harm done.
    • 29' Jose Enrique is boxed in by the corner flag by Walters, but he escapes with a nonchalant prodded pass to Coloccini.
    • 28' Jones is back up and will continue.
    • 27' Steve Harper looks pretty glum on the Newcastle bench with his arm in a sling. He was such a big part of Newcastle's promotion back to the top flight, and now he will miss a chunk of the season with that shoulder injury.
    • 26' Jones is down on the ptich clutching his head after an aerial clash with Tiote.
    • 25' Kenwyne Jones chases on to a long ball and slices his effort into the stand.
    • 24' Plenty of patient build-up play across the midfield from Newcastle. They will need to be patient in their efforts to break Stoke down.
    • 22' Collins trots forward to take another throw in Delap territory. Played short again and this time Newcastle clear.
    • 21' Stoke have not won in their last six top flight matches against Newcastle, since a 1-0 victory at St James Park in old Division One in March 1976. (Infostrada)
    • 20' Barton slips a reverse pass down the channel for Jose Enrique who fires a low cross in but there is no one on hand to tap it in.
    • 19' Ben Arfa gets his strike over the wal but it fizzes over the bar.
    • 18' Williamson bundles his way forward and is fouled by Huth. Newcastle have a free-kick just right of centre. Ben Arfa has placed the ball...
    • 17' Again Sorensen's clearance is poor, and it inivtes more pressure on to Stoke's defence. Is the big Dane carrying an injury of some kind?
    • 16' Krul comes off his line and claims the corner confidently. The home crowd give him a big cheer. The Dutchman is deputising for the injured Steve Harper.
    • 15' Danny Collins takes a throw. He gets it back and finds Etherington, who wins Stoke's first corner.
    • 14' Carroll can't quite meet a cross with a telling header, and as the second ball comes in Diao has him marked and heads clear.
    • 13' Newcastle still very much in control of the opening quarter-hour of this match. They are yet to test Sorensen though.
    • 12' Reader Ian says: "No Tuncay on the bench, Fuller not starting either, Diao in the middle with the equally snail-like Whelan - another clueless offering from Pulis. God help us..." Do you agree?
    • 11' Walters is penalised for a foul at the corner flag.
    • 10' Krul has to save a corne rkick at the expense of a throw. Remember, Ror yDelap is not starting today, so none of those trademark long throws.
    • 9' Routledge does well to keep the ball in play, but his cross is blocked by Huth.
    • 8' It's another poor kick from Sorensen. He's not had a good start to this match.
    • 7' Newcastle string a dozen or more passes together through midfielder before Tiote's through ball runs to Sorensen.
    • 6' Bright start here from Newcastle. Stoke yet to get a sight on goal.
    • 5' Ben Arfa races on to a ball down the left and gets his cross back to Routledge, but the winger has the ball taken off him before he can strike.
    • 4' Nolan goes chasing after a long ball down the left channel but it's too far ahead of him.
    • 3' Newcastle United and Stoke City have met 68 times in the league. Newcastle United have won 31, Stoke City 20 and there have been 17 draws. (Infostrada)
    • 2' Barton spreads the ball wide for Perch, whose touch takes the ball out for a goal kick.
    • 1' Sorensen gets his clearance from a backpass all wrong and it almost falls kindly for Carroll. Stoke are let off the hook though.
    • 1' Stoke kick off and we're underway at St James' Park!
    • 16:05 Today's referee is Michael Jones from Cheshire.
    • 16:00 Newcastle boss Chris Hughton is happy to let Hatem Ben Arfa's feet do the talking after seeing him launch his career in English football in style. Full Story
    • 15:55 The game comes too soon for Danny Simpson (ankle) and Danny Guthrie (knee) despite their return to training, while Steven Taylor (shoulder) and Dan Gosling (knee) are still some way away.
    • 15:50 Sol Campbell got 90 minutes under his belt at Stamford Bridge but is not even on the bench. Tim Krul will deputise in goal for Steve Harper, who is facing 12 weeks on the sidelines after undergoing shoulder surgery.
    • 15:45 Newcastle manager Chris Hughton welcomes full-back James Perch back from suspension. The former Nottingham Forest defender sat out the 4-3 Carling Cup victory at Chelsea after collecting five bookings in his first five competitive games for the club.
    • 15:40 But winger Jermaine Pennant (hamstring) is still sidelined and Tuncay Sanli is not in the squad.
    • 15:35 Stoke manager Tony Pulis has rung the changes after giving a number of fringe players a run-out in the Carling Cup. Goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen comes back into the starting line-up having been rested in the midweek defeat of Fulham, while forward John Walters reclaims his place in the side.
