    • 1' We are off and underway at St. James’ Park!
    • 15:58 The two teams are out on the pitch and we are moments away from kick-off.
    • 15:56 I'm Stewart Coggin and if you want to discuss the game on Twitter, I'll try and be as active as I can! @StewartCoggin
    • 14:55 Steve Clarke: "It was really important I had a good start because there were people saying, ‘Look at Steve Clarke, he’s the perennial No.2’. It was important for me to have a good start but also for the club because it showed my appointment wasn’t as crazy as it seemed at the time."
    • 14:50 Alan Pardew: "We've got really strong competition in the group now and that's excellent. When you are a senior player and you see a great young player pushing, it boosts you and is great for spirit."
    • 14:45 West Brom have been one of the surprise packages in the Premier League this season, collecting 14 points from eight games. Clarke’s side were, though, beaten 2-1 at home by Manchester City last weekend despite holding a numerical advantage after the first-half sending off of James Milner. Edin Dzeko was the thorn in their side with two late goals after Shane Long had put the Baggies ahead.
    • 14:40 Fabricio Coloccini was outstanding for Newcastle last weekend and has now emerged as one of the best central defenders in the Premier League. He is back in the side today after being rested for the 1-0 Europa League win over Club Brugge on Thursday.
    • 14:35 Newcastle will still be kicking themselves after conceding late in last Sunday’s 1-1 draw with rivals Sunderland. The Magpies, despite being reduced to ten men for much of the match after Cheick Tiote’s first-half red card, were rarely troubled by the hosts.
    • 14:30 Peter Odemwingie starts as West Brom manager Steve Clarke makes three changes to the side that lost 2-1 to Manchester City last weekend. The Nigerian replaces Marc-Antoine Fortune, while Romelu Lukaku and Zoltan Gera come in for Shane Long and the injured Claudio Yacob.
    • 14:25 Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has again left the out-of-form Papiss Cisse on the bench, with Shola Ameobi preferred up-front alongside Demba Ba. Newcastle’s only change from the side that drew 1-1 at Sunderland last weekend is an enforced one, with James Perch stepping in for the suspended Cheik Tiote.
