    • - Great goal and celebration by Cisse - not a bad game either, considering that it was goalless for so long. Tweet/follow me @symco_eurosport
    • - The win moves Newcastle up to 13th, six points clear of the bottom three and just three behind Fulham in 10th. Table
    • 90+5' The home side wind the clock down and Friend blows the whistle on a fourth straight home league win for the Toon. Crucial three points for Pardew's side.
    • 90+4' The home fans are delirious! Yellow card for Cisse, but who cares?
    • 90+3' GOAL FOR NEWCASTLE! CISSE WITH A SUPERB STRIKE! 1-0! He turns with a superb touch from a Cabaye shot and finishes - then leaps into the stand to celebrate with the fans in a gangway!
    • 90+3' Hangeland with another great block as Marveaux looks to pull the trigger from 18 yards.
    • 90+2' Desperate defending from Fulham, who are inviting pressure to the end.
    • 90+1' His cross is headed away, Karagounis goes down and the fourth official indicates five minutes of added-on time.
    • 90' Riise chops down Marveaux as he scampers towards the box - yellow card. The Frenchman will deliver from the right.
    • 88' Anita with a lifted ball to the near post where Cisse meets it with his head - tipped around the post by Schwarzer!
    • 86' Fulham now threatening, but Newcastle keep them at bay.
    • 85' Ameobi pushing on inside the box on the left and goes down as he shoots weakly... there was contact from Hangeland and he wanted a penalty, but it didn't look one to me.
    • 84' It was a great ball from Ruiz for Rodallega - he chested it down but lost his footing.
    • 83' Riise down the left and volleys across the six-yard box - Berbatov is furious that he did not seek to pull it back.
    • 83' Rodallega free in the box but just unable to bring the ball under control and shoot. Wake-up call for the Toon.
    • 82' There has not been a 0-0 draw at St James’ Park in the previous 26 home PL matches since a draw v Swansea in December 2011.
    • 81' Newcastle change: Adam Campbell on for Simpson. It is his fourth appearance.
    • 81' Fulham change: Hugo Rodallega on for Manolev.
    • 80' Simpson this time goes for goal rather than crossing from the right - he had options - and the ball flies well wide.
    • 79' Taylor watching a long ball into the box and goes to ground under a bump from Riether - but he gets up in rather embarrassed fashion.
    • 78' There is too long left for Fulham to defend this deeply.
    • 77' Still the Toon press. Hangeland stands tall again to head clear. And on the next cross from Simpson, Ameobi is all alone - but plants his header wide.
    • 75' Cisse lurking on the far side and a timely slide and half-volley clear by Hangeland denies him a clean chance on goal.
    • 74' Utter lack of options for Berbatov as he brings the ball towards halfway. Fulham lacking movement.
    • 73' Cisse offside as he is played in over the top.
    • 71' Frimpong in quickly to challenge Ameobi inside the box, and he goes to ground. The fans howl for a penalty but he doesn't appeal. Soon after the striker gets a shot off from the left which Schwarzer holds well.
    • 70' The striker challenges for a long ball into the mixer, causing problems for Schwarzer, who eventually gathers.
    • 69' Newcastle change: Shola Ameobi on for Gouffran.
    • 68' When the corner is headed out, Riise's volley is just wide. Good technique. He hasn't scored a PL goal for six years... his last one was for Liverpool, against Jol's Spurs.
    • 68' Riise with a great ball in from the free-kick and Berbatov is all alone - his header seems destined for the far corner but Krul dives to palm over brilliantly!
    • 66' Cisse with a clumsy challenge on Frimpong. This is getting heated.
    • 65' There weren't many appeals, perhaps owing to Cisse's follow-up chance, but it looks a definite handball - and there was no advantage to not giving a penalty.
    • 64' Newcastle hit the post twice! Marveaux's corner is headed for the far corner by Gouffran and Riether deflects it on to the woodwork - with his arm! - before Cisse arrives to smack the rebound against the same post from two yards out!
    • 63' Improv from Taylor as he nods back to Krul on the floor under pressure.
    • 62' The fans are right behind the home team now. Ruiz caught by Gouffran as he advances into the Newcastle half.
    • 61' Cabaye picks out Taylor, who has often played as an auxiliary attacker today, and he looks to beat Schwarzer at his near post - the keeper saves and holds.
    • 60' Sissoko wins a free-kick off Frimpong.
    • 59' Newcastle have scored in their last 9 home PL matches since a 1-0 defeat v West Ham on November 11th.
    • 58' Cabaye lobs a ball down the left for Gouffran to cross low for Cisse - he expected it to be cut out and a poor first touch just takes the ball to Schwarzer. Golden chance.
    • 57' Senderos penalised for a late tackle in the back of a Newcastle man but gets away with it. Probably not a second booking.
    • 55' Taylor rises to head for goal from the corner, wide of the far post. Newcastle building pressure.
    • 54' Cisse on the end of a loose ball in the box and turns a cross towards goal from the right which Schwarzer tips over to be safe.
    • 53' So close for Newcastle! Anita with a strike from way out after a corner is cleared and the ball deflects off Frimpong on the edge of the box, loops over Schwarzer and hits the bar before going over!
    • 52' Gouffran offside as Newcastle somewhat scrappily look to attack.
    • 51' Fulham change: Frimpong on for Enoh, who tried to grit his teeth and play on but simply cannot.
    • 51' Sissoko is now limping about.
    • 50' Sissoko turns and looks to burst through midfield, only to be hacked down by Senderos. Another booking.
    • 49' He does try to continue on his Premier League debut.
    • 48' The Cameroon star limps off. Emmanuel Frimpong is ready to come on, but he may be okay to continue.
    • 47' The yellow card comes out - and it is deserved.
    • 46' Sissoko with a lunge on Eyong Enoh. He apologises, but the Fulham midfielder is hurt.
    • 46' No changes at the break. Only Aston Villa have conceded more second-half goals than Newcastle this season. The Toon have shipped 35.
    • - Krul made one great save while at the other end Cisse was unlucky with one effort but should have played in Marveaux when taking on another. Gouffran was also incorrectly denied a fantastic chance by the officials. Newcastle perhaps edged the half. Watching at home? Fancy a prediction? I'll go 2-1 Newcastle.

    • 45+1' After just one minute of added time, ref Friend brings the half to an end. Goalless.
    • 45' Hangeland has made more headed clearances than any other player in the Premier League this season (175 before the match).
    • 44' Berbatov threatening to bring the ball down in the box after interplay with Ruiz, but it doesn't come off for him.
    • 43' Fulham looking to take the sting out of Newcastle's huff and puff in the closing stages of the half.
    • 42' Corner won for Newcastle by Anita, and Schwarzer claims the ball at the second attempt when it is pumped in.
    • 41' It was a great reaction save from Tim Krul as Manolev shot from a few yards out following the initial scramble.
    • 40' Scramble in the six-yard box from the set-piece, but the Magpies hack clear.
    • 39' Berbatov carries the ball forward on the left. Three-on-three for Fulham... Ruiz is fed by a sublime disguised ball into the box but his shot is blocked. Corner.
    • 38' The home side are building pressure. Throw on the left here, but wasted.
    • 37' Berbatov has scored in four successive Premier League appearances for the first time in his career. 10 of Berbatov's 13 Premier League goals for Fulham have come before half-time... time for the Berb to notch? Tweet/follow me @symco_eurosport
    • 35' Excitement as Gouffran latches on to a Cisse flick-on and is in behind - but the flag is up. Replays show that he was half a yard beyond the last defender but the ball in fact came off Hangeland as he jumped with the striker - incorrect decision and Newcastle denied a golden chance to score!
    • 34' Gouffran with a snapshot from 20 yards which is blocked by team-mate Cabaye! That looked destined to at least test Schwarzer.
    • 32' The nippy Marveaux plays in Cisse on the left and goes for the return pass - the striker opts to shoot and bends his effort over! If he had played it back, an easy ball, the Frenchman would have had a simple finish.
    • 31' There is then a bit of a row between Cisse and Philippe Senderos as the Senegalese bundles him over on the touchline - it was a foul.
    • 31' Cisse with a brilliant first touch from Taylor's knockdown in the box but his volley is superbly blocked by Hangeland!
    • 30' Jonas to the feet of Sissoko. A smart turn in midfield sees him create space to attack, but Berbatov fouls again. Walking a tightrope, the Bulgaria star.
    • 28' The home fans with ironic cheers as Friend gives them a free-kick. The ref then has a word with Berbatov as he refuses to retreat 10 yards in front of Jonas.
    • 27' Sissoko offloads to Cisse on the left and the striker looks to bend a shot into the far top corner... not far away! Schwarzer was struggling to get to that.
    • 27' Anita with a rushed cross that cannons off Karagounis after more careful build-up from Simpson and Marveaux.
    • 25' Berbatov unable to get the ball down for a shot in a crowded Fulham box.
    • 24' Duff centres low from the left towards Berbatov and Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa slices the ball out for a corner. He sort of needed to, or he could have put it through his own goal - but it looked unintentional.
    • 23' Newcastle boss Alan Pardew sees it as vital that his team get back to winning ways today. Pardew craving three points
    • 22' Bryan Ruiz keeps the ball on the right and his Fulham team-mates then commence to knock it about. After some time the striker looks to burst through on goal, but is just stopped. Ruiz aiming high
    • 21' Jonás Gutiérrez has been quiet so far. Here he finds the feet of Cabaye, who pulls the trigger - that is MILES off target.
    • 20' The match is a bit disjointed at present.
    • 19' Sissoko with a wild swing at a loose ball - well off-target for Newcastle.
    • 18' Anita, who played under Fulham boss Jol at Ajax for two seasons - and won the Dutch Cup in 2010 - lifts a ball over the top for Cisse, but it runs through to Mark Schwarzer.
    • 17' Toon change: After Santon limped out of the game, Vurnon Anita is now ready to take to the field.
    • 15' At the other end Riether has lots of space to cross from the right as Santon pulls up with a hamstring problem... his low ball towards Berbatov is blocked at full-stretch by Taylor, who calmly gets to his feet and plays the ball out.
    • 14' Away captain Brede Hangeland looks to shepherd the ball out for a goal-kick but Gouffran is there quickly to force him to play. The fans love that.
    • 13' Fulham have won more PL games at St James’ Park (3) than any other stadium apart from Bolton and Man City (also 3).
    • 12' Cisse bundles over Giorgos Karagounis in front of the dugouts and is not happy to be penalised.
    • 11' Corner for Newcastle as Santon battles Sascha Riether for the ball. When it is cleared, Moussa Sissoko gets a great ball into the middle but home centre-half Steven Taylor, still in the box, sends his header well over.
    • 10' Fulham have named an all-foreign starting XI for the 13th time in the PL and their 4th time this season.
    • 9' Damien Duff wins a free-kick on the left flank. He is being booed whenever he gets the ball. Another former Magpies player, defender Aaron Hughes, is on the bench for the Cottagers. The Toon defend the ball in.
    • 8' Some rough tackles going in, but ref Kevin Friend is content to let them go.
    • 7' A well-worked move ends with Sylvain Marveaux setting up Danny Simpson to cross - Santon ghosts inside Stanislav Manolev at the far post but cannot meet the ball.
    • 6' Scrappy start to the match, but Newcastle are looking to get on the ball now.
    • 5' Davide Santon attacks down the left for Newcastle and wins a throw. That gets the Toon fans going.
    • 4' Dimitar Berbatov awake to a loose ball and bears down on goal, moving diagonally from right to left... he curls a shot just over with the outside of his right foot. Very close.
    • 3' Yohan Cabaye, the home side's stand-in captain today, pulls up injured after making a tackle. He will be okay to carry on after a brief pause.
    • 2' Positive formation from Pardew then in a massive game for them if they wish to avoid being sucked into the relegation scrap. Can they go down? Tweet/follow me @symco_eurosport
    • 1' Fulham get us underway, kicking from left to right in a changed orange strip.
    • 14:56 The teams emerge. It is not very sunny in Newcastle today.
    • 14:55 Martin Jol: "I don't deny that we are looking for a goalkeeper. There is a lot of speculation in the press. I have a young goalkeeper in Neil Etheridge, he is out on loan and so is David Stockdale. He doesn't want to be number two so that could be a little problem, so of course we are always looking for a goalkeeper."
    • 14:55 Alan Pardew: "I am confident we have the ability in the squad to get ourselves into a position where we are still a Premier League side next season. We are going to be under pressure against Fulham and we are going to have to cope with it."
    • 14:50 The Magpies haven’t kept a clean sheet in the Premier League since January, conceding 17 goals in nine games.
    • 14:45 The Cottagers have lost just one of their last five league games away from home (W2 D2). However, Fulham have scored only five times in their last six on the road.
    • 14:40 Newcastle have won three successive home league matches for the first time since April last year when they won four.
    • 14:35 Fulham have won five of the last seven matches against Newcastle in the Premier League (D1 L1).
    • 14:30 Fulham make two changes from the 3-2 win over West London rivals QPR, with Stanislav Manolev coming in for injured Ashkan Dejagah (ankle) and the suspended Steve Sidwell - sent off on Monday - replaced by Eyong Enoh who makes his first start since joining from Ajax. Mladen Petric is unavailable because of an adductor problem while Mahamadou Diarra is out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.
    • 14:27 Yoan Gouffran returns for Newcastle in the only change from the Europa League defeat at Benfica, replacing injured James Perch. The Toon revert to 4-4-2, with Gouffran joining Papiss Cisse up front. Like Gouffran, Mathieu Debuchy was ineligible for Thursday's match but is unavailable today with a hamstring problem. Cheick Tiote (hamstring), Massadio Haidara (knee) and Fabricio Coloccini (back) are also missing but Danny Simpson starts despite a knock to the ankle suffered in Portugal.
    • 14:20 Newcastle: Krul, Simpson, S.Taylor, Yanga-Mbiwa, Santon, Marveaux, Sissoko, Cabaye, Gutierrez, Gouffran, Cisse. Subs: Elliot, Williamson, Anita, Bigirimana, Obertan, Campbell, Ameobi. /// Fulham: Schwarzer, Riether, Senderos, Hangeland, Riise, Manolev, Enoh, Karagounis, Duff, Ruiz, Berbatov.
