    Time:90'
    • Newcastle United
    • Sunderland
    • 90+6' The party continues after the full-time whistle! Di Canio still celebrating. 3-0 to Sunderland.
    • 90+3' This match just fading to a finish. Howard Webb can blow his whistle any time now.
    • 90+1' We are into six minutes of time added on...
    • 89' This is set to be Sunderland’s biggest win over Newcastle in 34 years – since a 4-1 victory at St James Park in the second tier in Feb 1979.
    • 88' It is 46 years since Sunderland won a top flight derby match by a three goal margin – 3-0 at home in 1967. They last did it away from home in 1966 – 3-0 at St James Park.
    • 87' So many of the Sunderland players will be thrilled with this performance today, but Simon Mignolet has been the key man for the win in goal.
    • 86' Di Canio cutting an animated figure in the technical area. Beating his chest. Looks like he was brought up at Roker Park the way he is celebrating.
    • 85' David Vaughan scored his fifth career Premier League goal and first in 15 months.
    • 84' The Sunderland fans in party mood high in the stands at St James' Park. Sunderland with plenty of bodies behind the ball.
    • 83' Gutiérrez arrives to nod at goal, but he sees the ball fly well over the bar. Don't think Newcastle are going to score today.
    • 82' Stephane Sessegnon is offside after setting off too early, but it won't matter. Sunderland surely have three points in the bag now.
    • 81' The home fans are off and running after watching Di Canio go off and running down the touchline. What a day out for those visiting fans.
    • 80' GOAL! Vaughan slams a shot high into the net from distance. What a goal that is. Sunderland lead 3-0 against the home side. A magical strike.
    • 79' Newcastle will be level on points with Stoke City, but have a better goal difference. Stoke against Manchester United coming right up.
    • 78' Elliot tips the ball wide from N'Diaye's effort at goal. Solid enough stop, but time against the home side here.
    • 77' This might well be the result which inspires Sunderland to stay in the top flight. Gutiérrez sees a shot hit his own man and fly wide of goal via Cisse.
    • 76' Some Newcastle fans with tears in their eyes, but they have a corner here which Ameobi can't get on the end of.
    • 75' Adam Johnson scored his fifth Premier League goal of the season and first since January. It was his second career league goal v Newcastle and first at St James' Park.
    • 74' Di Canio's celebrations almost as good as the finish from Johnson. All you can hear are the Sunderland fans. No wonder.
    • 73' GOAL! Johnson with a magical swerving shot from distance. Flies beyond Elliott from 25 yards out. A quite brilliant goal for the visiting side. They lead 2-0.
    • 72' Cisse slides the ball wide of the target from Sissoko's pass. Newcaslte knocking at the door here.
    • 71' Sunderland introduce Mangane for Cuellar, who is given a real hug by Di Canio.
    • 70' Ben Arfa with a glorious chance to come up with the equaliser, but he heads wide of the goal from Debuchy's nod on. So near, yet so far for the home side.
    • 69' Mignolet manages to get in ahead of Ameobi after a Cisse shot deflected into his path.
    • 68' A penalty shout for Sunderland as Graham heads against Yanga-Mbiwa's arm, but referee doesn't want to know. Not for the first time today.
    • 67' Colback forcing Ben Arfa to go backwards. Sunderland working ever so hard to close down space.
    • 66' Sunderland also shuffle their pack as McClean departs with Vaughan introduced.
    • 65' Newcastle bring on Ben Arfa for Cabaye to freshen matters up.
    • 64' Larsson just too high with the corner looking for O'Shea at the back post. Ball drops out of play for a goalkick to the home team.
    • 63' McClean is cut off by Debuchy, but Sunderland have another corner here.
    • 62' Huge moments in this match. Sessegnon dives in the home box under pressure from Gutiérrez, who is far from happy about the forward's conduct.
    • 61' Cisse has the ball in the net for Newcastle, but he is deemed to be offside from Ameobi's header on. Think the linesman has called that decision wrong.
    • 60' Newcastle have not won a single Premier League match this season when losing at half time – two draws and eight defeats.
    • 59' Mignolet in inspired form at the other end as he claws out a powerful hit by Cisse. That is an excellent stop.
    • 58' Newcastle could have done without that. Sunderland must take heart from the way this match is going so far.
    • 57' Krul is going to have to depart the scene clutching an arm as Rob Elliot arrives to take over.
    • 56' Looks like Krul is in some distress here. He is on the deck and in need of some treatment after an awkward fall.
    • 55' On comes Jack Colback and off goes the injured Bardsley.
    • 54' Sessegnon takes a tumble. Clear foul by Tiote outside of the home area. Meanwhile, Sunderland get ready to make a change.
    • 53' Gutiérrez tackled by Bardsley. He was expecting a corner there. And is furious about that decision.
    • 52' Johnson tries to lift the ball over Krul at the other end. Speculative attempt, but never got enough air under the effort.
    • 51' Newcastle earn a corner-kick. Marveaux throws it over, but Ameobi can't connect with the delivery.
    • 50' Bardsley needing a bit of treatment here. Lee Cattermole looking on today from the stands. His season already over due to injury.
    • 49' Newcastle continue their policy of throwing in crosses. But it is all a bit hopeful. All too easy for Mignolet to gather these balls into his area.
    • 48' Top scorer in this fixture – Shola Ameobi - comes on as a substitute. Seven of his total of 41 career Premier League goals have come against Sunderland. Rose showing some more of his class in defending.
    • 47' Change at the break for Newcastle United with Shola Ameobi replacing Gouffran.
    • 46' We are off and running in the second period of this match.
    • 45+3' A brilliant first half from Sunderland. They lead 1-0. And it has to be said, they are good for that lead.
    • 45+1' We are into three minutes of time added on in the first period with Taylor booked for a late tackle on Mignolet.
    • 44' Gutierrez wallops a shot at goal, but Mignolet does well to tip it wide for a corner. Some more inspired play by him. Sunderland defending frantically.
    • 43' Steven Taylor heads safely back into the arms of Krul. Sunderland will be up to 15th place with a win here today.
    • 42' The home team has never come from behind to win in a Tyne-Wear derby. Can Newcastle alter that statistic today? Big ask.
    • 41' Bardsley caught late by Cisse. Clear foul by him. Fairly wretched late tackle. Howard Webb quickly out with the book.
    • 40' Sunderland doing very well in defensive situations as Gutiérrez and Debuchy are both halted from throwing over cross balls.
    • 39' Larsson's corner is met by Cuellar, but his header is blocked from close range by Krul. Fantastic stop from the Newcastle goalkeeper.
    • 38' Another fine piece of play by Sunderland sees Sessegnon halted on the run, but he does enough to earn the corner-kick for his side.
    • 37' Newcastle last came back to beat Sunderland in April 2006 – a 4-1 victory at the Stadium of Light.
    • 36' Sunderland deal well with the dead ball. As they have dealt well with most of the balls into the heart of their area.
    • 35' Going to be a booking here for Rose after he went through Debuchy. Booked as much for the follow through. Newcastle have a free-kick out wide.
    • 34' Graham gets back to his feet after some treatment and we can continue the play.
    • 33' The 3,000 Sunderland fans loving their day out so far to Newcastle as Graham slams a shot at goal under pressure. Decent take by Krul. But more good play from the Black Cats.
    • 32' Was a lovely pass from McClean to play in Sessegnon for that opening goal. Sunderland looking a different side from the one under Martin O'Neill a few weeks ago.
    • 31' Gouffran needing a spot of treatment after what appeared like a clash of heads with Bardsley. But on we go with the visiting side leading this match.
    • 30' Sunderland being pressed back. Vital they do not concede here as a Gouffran header is collected well by Mignolet in the visiting goal.
    • 29' Stephane Sessegnon scored his sixth Premier League goal of the season and first since March (against Fulham). He is now one short of his best scoring season – seven from 2011-12.
    • 28' Cisse slides the ball at goal from Sissoko's pass, but Mignolet dives to his left to make a brilliant stop. Almost world class goalkeeping there. Sunderland cling to this lead.
    • 27' Chance for the home side to hit back right away, but Mignolet is off his line quickly to block the effort from Cisse. That is a superb save by him.
    • 26' Di Canio erupts on the touchline. Like Jose Mourinho at his very peak. Superb stuff in the derby.
    • 25' GOAL! Sessegnon scores for Sunderland. Superb finish from 25 yards. A low drive from distance. Krul is beaten low to his left. Sunderland lead 1-0.
    • 24' Six Frenchmen starting for Newcastle today – the most ever for the club in a single Premier League fixture and the most for any team in the division since Arsenal (6) at Chelsea in Oct 2010. The record is seven – set by Fulham v Middlesbrough in August 2003.
    • 23' Cuéllar comes up with a fine defensive header at the heart of the Sunderland box from Debuchy's delivery. Superb piece of play by him.
    • 22' Cisse clears the ball well before Rose is forced to race back and win the ball ahead of Marveaux. This game wide open at the moment. No side on top at moment.
    • 21' Going to be a booking here for Gouffran for an over the top tackle on Johnson. Really poor tackle by him. Could have been a red card for that one.
    • 20' Sissoko on hand to head clear Johnson's free-kick. Some bright play by Sunderland. Di Canio trying to get his side to press the game higher up the park.
    • 19' Graham manages to get a shot in from the corner. Appeals for a handball in that home area. Came off Yanga-Mbiwa's hand. Referee said ball to hand.
    • 18' Some smart play by Johnson out wide brings another corner for Sunderland which he will take.
    • 17' O'Shea comes up with a solid header out of his area. Cabaye late on McClean. Clear foul, and this time Howard Webb does blow.
    • 16' Sessegnon fails to gallop onto a free-kick over the top from Larsson. Decent ball into the area, but just too much pace on it.
    • 15' Newcastle fan Danny Graham starts in attack for Sunderland. He has failed to score in all seven Premier League matches for the club and not netted in the division since New Year’s day for Swansea. He has never scored in all four Premier League matches against Newcastle.
    • 14' A slight pull on the jersey by Steven Taylor. That was a penalty. Referee called that decision wrong it must be said. Big call by Webb.
    • 13' Sessegnon picks out Graham in the home area. He takes a tumble trying to turn, but is hustled out of it. Appeals for a penalty. Nothing doing.
    • 12' Bardsley hoists in a high cross, but Krul is quickly off his line to collect the ball. Steven Taylor needing a spot of treatment here.
    • 11' Newcastle have kept five Premier League clean sheets this season – only Reading (four) have fewer. Sunderland have nine Premier League clean sheets by comparison.
    • 10' Newcastle enjoying the early momentum as Tiote's cross just eludes Cisse. Decent piece of early pressure from the home side.
    • 9' It is 47 years since Sunderland last kept a clean sheet at Newcastle – a run of 20 league matches. The last came in a 3-0 victory in old Division One in October 1966. How they could do with one today.
    • 8' Sessegnon through on goal, but the referee spotted a foul on Steven Taylor. Wasn't a lot in that it must be said. A real let-off for the home team.
    • 7' Some decent twisting and turning in the area by Marveaux. Fires in the shot, but Bardsley is doing well to make the block. Sunderland having to race back.
    • 6' The Newcastle fans in full voice here. Yanga-Mbiwa heads behind his goal, but the home side immediately go on the break at the other end from the corner.
    • 5' Mignolet quickly off his line to grab the loose ball with O'Shea well out of position. Cisse was threatening, but the goalkeeper got there first.
    • 4' James McClean darts into the Newcastle box, but the cross leaves a lot to be desired as it spins behind goal. Cue the cheers from the home fans.
    • 3' Steven Taylor meets a high free-kick into the opposition box, but can't get any direction on the header. Another goalkick that Mignolet sweeps down the park.
    • 2' Debuchy can't get the better of Rose and that is a goalkick to the visiting side. Mignolet knocks it long.
    • 1' Sunderland get the match off and running. What a noise out there.
    • 11:55 Players on their way out for what should be a fascinating encounter between these two sides. Di Canio in his Sunderland club suit tie. Looking very relaxed. Let us see how he maintains such a stance this afternoon.
    • 11:50 Match odds if you are after a flutter on this one: Newcastle United (19/20), Sunderland (7/2), Draw (5/2)
    • 11:45 Alan Pardew: "Our next target after going out (of Europe) is to try to secure a top-10 finish if we can. With all the injuries we have had and the credible performance we have put in Europe, I would have to take that as a real learning curve for us in terms of the injuries we have sustained."
    • 11:40 Paolo Di Canio: "This team, at this level in the Premier League, watching them play, can be mentally and physically fitter. At Swindon I had a League Two and a League One side who were fitter. We had some tests here for players who have played at the top level for seven or eight years, simple tests, and we found one player with a real difficulty and that is not acceptable at this level – that is my opinion. It is not me saying Martin O'Neill did a rubbish job."
    • 11:35 Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has central defender Steven Taylor fit. Taylor missed Thursday night's 1-1 Europa League draw with Benfica with a knee problem but starts, while midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa (hamstring) has shown no ill-effects from his second-half cameo against the Portuguese side. Full-back Mathieu Debuchy and midfielder Cheick Tiote are also in from the start.
    • 11:30 New Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio is without suspended midfielder Craig Gardner. Gardner collected his 10th booking of the season during last weekend's 2-1 Premier League defeat at Chelsea and will sit out the game at St James' Park and Everton's visit to the Stadium of Light. Di Canio include defender Carlos Cuellar (ankle) and striker Danny Graham (knee), who have trained this week, but there is no place in the squad for Connor Wickham, who has an unspecified knock.
    • 11:25 The referee for this one is Howard Webb - the man for the big occasion. The 2010 World Cup final referee for this Tyne-Wear derby.
    • 11:20 Newcastle: Krul; Debuchy, Steven Taylor, Yanga-Mbiwa, Gutierrez; Tiote, Cabaye; Marveaux, Sissoko, Gouffran; Cisse.subs: Elliot, Perch, Haidara, Anita, Ben Arfa, Campbell, Shola Ameobi////Sunderland: Mignolet; Bardsley, Cuellar, O'Shea, Rose; Johnson, N'Diaye, Larsson, McClean; Sessegnon; Graham..subs: Westwood, Kilgallon, Colback, Vaughan, Mangane, Mandron, Laidler.

  1. 3-0 to the Mackems, followed by the rags smashing up­ their toon again, and one of them punching a horse, all­ predicted from Hoss at the high chaparral.

    From Hoss, on Sun 21 Apr 21:33
  2. Mark, I'm not a whinger I'm just stating facts.­ Sad that you can't see that. The only reason there­ was so many gaps in the Newcastle defence in this game­ was due to them having to push forward so often due to­ the inability of the officials to do the job they were­ paid to do. The stats show that Sunderland weren't­ that much better than Newcastle, in fact the only stat­ where they were better is shots on target, yet­ according to other web sites NUFC had more shots on­ target. Never mind we will move on. This was just a­ blip and we will get over it. p.s Still hope Sunderland­ and Newcastle stay in the prem which I'm sure they­ will.

  5. If the teams below start to win a few the pressure­ will really come on both North east teams .nobody is­ safe this season

    From Rissoles, on Mon 15 Apr 13:45
  6. Cards I didn't peg you for a whinger but that is­ really all you have done in your comments for this­ game. The utter nonsense you spewed about how none of­ Sunderland's team would get into the Newcastle­ squad is sheer bull. Did you steal this from the hugely­ overated Steven Taylor? Didn't he make a similar­ comment a few weeks ago? Well I bet he feels like a­ complete mug now after your team were taken apart and­ hammered 3-0 at home. Taylor (and you Cards) need to­ remember just how shyte your defense is. Your goal­ difference is laughable and Taylor should remember that­ he is part of that shyte defense and reel his tongue in­ the next time he wants to say something stupid. In some­ aspects this result is more of a humiliation that the­ 5-1 drubbing you gave us a few seasons back. I mean­ it's one thing to lose away from home in a derby,­ but to get absolutely thrashed in front of your own­ fans in such a manner is way worse. Not to mention all­ of the pre-match predictions from the Geordies on here­ were WAY off the mark. Didn't see this one coming­ did you boys?

    From Mark, on Mon 15 Apr 12:25
  7. Paul and all whinging carToonysfor goodness sake take­ the defeat and move on. You clearly had a good goal­ ruled out, however it was a very debateable freekick­ that led to it ......you were also lucky not to have­ two men sent off and a penalty given against you. The­ Lads....red and white ones played with pride and­ passion and I have to say did finish the game looking­ the fitter team.....first time this season? Mad Paulo­ crazy game .....well done magnanamous toonys you do­ credit to your team...unlike the idiots who rioted­ afterwards.

    From KELVIN, on Mon 15 Apr 7:36
  8. Well played sunderland you definatly deserved this one,­ and to my fellow Geordie mates I promise you we will­ bounce back next time around the game was there for­ either side to claim it, and our defense could not cope­ with sunderland's counter attacks, though this has­ been a bad day this is not the end for Newcastle.­ Always believe u Geordies.

    From Sunderland, on Sun 14 Apr 17:21
  15. yes we had all the banter and delusion from before the­ b game about what theywere going to do to us,­ especially after the win against benfica on Thursday­ eve. But, now of course , we are getting the excuses of­ being tired and playing too many games to close to one­ another. Just admit you aint out of the relegation­ scrap just yet andalso we played you off the park Cisse­ was offside and we should have had two penaltys as well­ but hey whether we beat you 1-0 or 3 -0 we get the­ points and the local bragging rights so lets see wht­ other excuses appear on theses boards over the next few­ days.

    From MALCOLM D, on Sun 14 Apr 16:40
  16. A few more wins like that and the whole of Sunderland­ will be performing Mussolini salutes before their­ manager!!

  17. T0-3N ARMY !!!! FTM

    From anon, on Sun 14 Apr 16:08
  18. Delighted.....I'm one of the people who said­ Sundeland should not have changed Managers and I still­ believe O.Neill was treated harshly.....I didn't­ see this win coming and certainly not by three clear­ goals.....Three goals and perhaps more importantly­ three different goalscorers.....The Di Canio effect­ seems to be working and I think Sunderland were unlucky­ to lose at Chelsea last week.....As always when a team­ (basically the same) improve under a new manager it­ makes you think.....Why didn't Sunderland play like­ this before?.....That way Martin O'Neill might­ still have his job KEEP IT UP BOYS
