    • - 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+4' There goes the final whistle! Nobody could find the winner in stoppage time. Pardew punches the air towards the travelling fans. Newcastle will be happier with the point.
    • 89' McClean inches away from the winner as he fired a shot in from 25 yards out. So near yet so far.
    • 88' A booking for Cabaye for another late challenge on Rose. Sunderland fortunate to be level, but they will take this all day long.
    • 87' GOAL! An own goal off Ba and Sunderland level late in the game. Would you believe it? O'Shea met the free-kick with his head from Larsson. Hit off Ba. Massive own goal. No chance for Krul who was heading in the other direction.
    • 86' Williamson with a bit of a cynical challenge on Saha. Will take that booking at this stage of the contest.
    • 85' Obertan arrives to replace Ben Arfa for these final five minutes.
    • 84' David Vaughan takes over from Johnson for the home side. Last throw of the dice perhaps? This has been a miserable afternoon for the Blacks Cats.
    • 83' Larsson sees a cross blocked by Simpson. Throws in a corner. Breaks to Saha at the back post, but he somehow manages to knock the ball into the side netting from five yards out.
    • 82' Steven Taylor rises to head clear a fairly aimless cross by Rose. Sunderland trying to rouse themselves for one final push.
    • 81' Newcastle break up a home attack. Ben Arfa plays in Ba, but solid piece of covering work by John O'Shea to close down the danger. Had to make that challenge.
    • 80' Coloccini is going to depart the action to be replaced by Steven Taylor for the visiting side.
    • 79' In comes the corner. A few people go for the loose ball, but Newcastle, led by Coloccini, evetually deal with the danger to clear.
    • 78' McClean sends the ball into the box off the foot of Simpson. A corner to Sunderland which Larsson might well throw into the box.
    • 77' Pardew uses the time-out to have a quick word with Cabaye and Simpson at the side of the park. Can't really see his side being breached here today.
    • 76' Meanwhile, Coloccini is needing a bit of treatment here for cramp. He has been a giant for Newcastle today. Little wonder he is suffering from cramp.
    • 75' Gardner goes for goal. Sends a shot spinning over the opposing bar from 25 yards out. Never on target. Story of the Sunderland day in this contest.
    • 74' Ba darts through the middle. Mignolet comes out, but can't reach the loose ball and Sunderland can clear the danger.
    • 73' Sunderland have scored one Premier League goal in the second-half this season, less than any other team. Need another one from somewhere otherwise they are going to lose this match.
    • 72' Sunderland fans have been strangely muted during this contest. Martin O'Neill encouraging his side to get into the final third.
    • 71' Ba drags the ball across the face of goal as the visitors break, but nobody on hand to convert. Sunderland back in possession.
    • 70' Krul fumbles the ball from McClean's cross, but Saha can't benefit from the loose ball as the keeper grasps it at the second attempt. We remain at 1-0 in favour of Newcastle.
    • 69' Louis Saha scored one goal in 11 Premier League appearances for Newcastle between January and March 1999. He can become the third player to score for both clubs in the Premier League after Michael Chopra and Titus Bramble. None ever scored against their old side in a Premier League Tyne-Wear derby.
    • 68' Larsson decides to go for goal, but can only send a shot spinning wide of goal from 25 yards out. Not sure Krul has made a save of any real note today.
    • 67' Coloccini has collected a booking for a spot of dissent with Sunderland awarded a free-kick 25 yards from goal.
    • 66' Rose trying to pick out Fletcher in a crowded box, but solid piece of defending by Williamson to clear the danger.
    • 65' Ben Arfa goes through Rose with a late tackle. Sunderland earn the free-kick deep in their own half.
    • 64' Coloccini with another couple of brilliant tackles to get Newcastle out of a tight spot. He has been like a rock today for the visiting side.
    • 63' Sunderland going to finally shuffle their park as Sessegnon departs to be replaced by Saha.
    • 62' Larsson collects in the middle of the park. McClean sees a hopeful shot deflect wide for a corner-kick to the home side.
    • 61' Looks like there might be a change coming here sooner rather than late for Sunderland. Can't continue with the status quo the way this is working out.
    • 60' Simpson gets the ball out of danger before Mignolet races off his line to clear the ball ahead of Ba from Arfa's pass. Quick to react there.
    • 59' The visiting fans party high up in the stands at the Stadium of Light. They must be happy with the shape of their side today.
    • 58' Sunderland appeal for a corner-kick, but the referee says goalkick. Came off Williamson's head. Newcastle fortunate there.
    • 57' Colback picks out Fletcher, but he is bundled off the ball. More frustration for Sunderland, who can't seem to inject any forward momentum into their play.
    • 56' O'Shea overhits a pass trying to pick out Fletcher on the run, but straight through to Krul, who hasn't exactly been overworked.
    • 55' Newcastle will join Arsenal on 12 points from 10 matches with a win here. Looking more likely they will pocket the three points the longer this goes.
    • 54' Larsson and Sessegnon combine, but Simpson puts his foot through the ball to clear the danger. No-nonsense stuff.
    • 53' Sunderland really need to discover a bit more of a cutting edge. Had hardly trouble this visiting defence today. Larsson collects in the middle of the park.
    • 52' Sunderland last came back from a goal down to beat Newcastle in a Premier League Tyne-Wear derby 12 years ago in November 2000, when they won 2-1 at St James’ Park. Niall Quinn (64) and Kevin Phillips (75) cancelled out Kieron Dyer’s opener (28).
    • 51' Coloccini simply exuding class at the back as Cuellar catches Ba with a late challenge. Pardew not happy about that call.
    • 50' The home team has never gone behind and come back to win in a Premier League Tyne-Wear derby.
    • 49' Larsson with a brilliant run and cross, but superb defending by Coloccini to run the ball out of the box. Calm and cool stuff.
    • 48' Fletcher has scored all of Sunderland's five goals in the Premier League this term. Ba sees an effort deflect safely into the arms of Mignolet from distance.
    • 47' Sunderland have only managed three wins in their past 20 Premier League games as Fletcher nods wide of goal from Larsson's delivery.
    • 46' Newcastle get the second half off and running. All to play for in this second period.
    • 45+3' There goes the whistle for the break! Apart from the red card, Newcastle will be happy with how things are going. They lead 1-0.
    • 45+1' McClean sees a shot deflect wide for a corner to the home side. Johnson knocks the ball in, but so, so easy for Krul to take that cross.
    • 44' We are into three minutes of time added on to this half.
    • 43' Martin Atkinson awarded his first Premier League red card of the season. Last season he gave nine red cards in the division, more than any other referee. Will there be any more today?
    • 42' Johnson slides the ball through to Fletcher, but the offside flag is raised. More frustration for the home side.
    • 41' Tiote received his first red card for Newcastle in the Premier League, and his second for the club in total, after he was dismissed in a 3-1 FA Cup third round defeat at Stevenage in January 2011.
    • 40' Rose and Stephane Sessegnon combine well, but the move ends with Gardner walloping a shot yards over the bar. Newcastle will take those all day long.
    • 39' Newcastle continue to pack a punch on the break in this match. Certainly look potent enough when they pile forwards.
    • 38' Glorious chance for Ba in the box! Smashed the volley at goal from Coloccini's initial shot. Couldn't get over the ball as it flies over the bar.
    • 37' Sunderland spraying the ball from side to side, but Gardner produces a disappointing cross with Krul plucking the high ball out of the air.
    • 36' James Perch takes over from Shola Ameobi. That decision probably coming down to Ameobi being booked already.
    • 35' Krul out seconds later to punch clear the Larsson free-kick as Newcastle look to break. Change coming now.
    • 34' Cabaye guilty of a late tackle on Johnson. Sunderland earn a free-kick in a dangerous position.
    • 33' Newcastle are going to make a change here as Williamson manages to get in just ahead of Fletcher to win the ball.
    • 32' Gardner smashes the ball through several players, but the free-kick is a couple of yards wide of the goal.
    • 31' Cabaye clips Johnson with a late tackle. A free-kick chance for Sunderland around 30 yards from the Newcastle goal.
    • 30' Ball breaks to Johnson in the opposing area, but he knocks a swerving shot just high and wide of the goal. Groans palpable among the home support.
    • 29' Ameobi has picked up a yellow card for protesting to the referee about the red card.
    • 28' Cabaye lifts the free-kick straight into the box, and straight out of play. Ball over the bar.
    • 27' What a chance this is for Sunderland now with the one-man advantage. Gardner trips Santon. Free-kick chance for the visitors out wide.
    • 26' Cheick Tiote becomes the first Newcastle player to be send off against Sunderland in the Premier League.
    • 25' Newcastle have to regroup here. Were in control, but will now have to get the job done with 10 men against their bitter rivals.
    • 24' Mayhem then as Cabaye throws a free-kick into the area. Larsson almost guilty of a handling offence. Newcastle appeal, but referee says no.
    • 23' The studs were up, but was not malicious as he tangled with Colback behind him. Newcastle are down to 10 men.
    • 22' RED CARD FOR TIOTE! Late tackle on Fletcher. That is a harsh decision.
    • 21' Ben Arfa brings the ball up the park for Newcastle. Simpson throws a high ball into the box seconds later, but Mignolet is well positioned to take the ball.
    • 20' Newcastle somehow denied another corner-kick when Gardner clearly knocked the ball behind his own goal from Cabaye's corner.
    • 19' Decent effort by Mignolet. Ball was certainly moving in the air, but Mignolet gets across to swat the ball over his bar.
    • 18' Ameobi takes a tumble under pressure from Larsson. Free-kick to Newcastle around 30 yards from goal.
    • 17' Cuellar comes across to win the ball in the air from Ameobi. Strong challenge by him.
    • 16' Only Manchester United and Chelsea (both 18) have scored more Premier League goals for an away side at the Stadium of Light than Newcastle (14).
    • 15' Larsson whips the ball into the near post, but all too easy for Krul who gathers the ball into his chest.
    • 14' Another needless free-kick by Arfa on Rose and Sunderland have a free-kick out side of the visiting box.
    • 13' Ben Arfa clips Larsson with a late challenge. Silly stuff really from the midfielder.
    • 12' Sunderland keeping possession with some ease, but Newcastle have 11 men behind the ball in their own half.
    • 11' McClean trips Williamson and that will be a free-kick to Newcastle deep in their own half.
    • 10' Johnson runs the ball just out of play out wide. Both managers glued to that touchline at the moment.
    • 9' Newcastle have certainly settled in well to their passing game in Sunderland. Knocking the ball around with little or no fuss at the moment.
    • 8' Stephane Sessegnon sees a deflected shot spin into Fletcher's path, but the Scotland striker is narrowly offside.
    • 7' Fletcher almost connecting with a Larsson cross into the area. Brilliant ball, but good marking by the visiting side to ensure he can't get a free shot at goal.
    • 6' Yohan Cabaye opens the scoring for Newcastle to score his first away Premier League goal for the club. It is six years since either club has come from behind to win this fixture – Newcastle coming back to win 4-1 at the Stadium of Light in April 2006.
    • 5' Larsson whips the free-kick high into the box, but Cuellar just fails to connect with the ball at the back post. Goalkick to the visiting side.
    • 4' Pardew and the small posse of Newcastle visiting fans are loving this start as Colback is taken out late by Tiote.
    • 3' GOAL! Cabaye drives the ball into the corner of the net, and the visiting side are ahead. A 1-0 kead as the ball broke to Cabaye off Mignolet's save from the shot by Ameobi.
    • 2' Cabaye throws over a corner in the early moments, but Coloccini just fails to connect with the ball in the middle. Fletcher back helping out his defence.
    • 1' Sunderland get the match off and running here.
    • 13.25 Teams emerge to a wall of noise. Sunderland fans cutting wonderful images in a gorgeous day for football today.
    • 13.20 Match odds ahead of this one in case you are after a late bet: Sunderland 13/8, Newcastle 13/10, Draw 2/1
    • 13.15 This will be the 135th Tyne-Wear derby between the teams in the league – Newcastle have won 51, Sunderland 41 with 42 draws. The earliest Premier League goal scored in this fixture was when Craig Bellamy netted after two minutes in Newcastle’s 2-0 victory at St. James’ Park in September 2002.
    • 13.10 Alan Pardew: "(Mike Ashley) is the best chairman I have had in terms of letting me work. He hardly ever bothers me and if he does, it's about a decision involving the budget, questions like, 'Was that a good move?' or 'Could we have paid less?'. But outside of the team, very rarely will he stop me and say, 'Why did you sub him at that time?' or 'What's the story with him? Why isn't he playing?'. He trusts me and knows I am being fair. I am trying to get the best out of the team."
    • 13.05 Martin O’Neill: “We should take our lead from (Newcastle) in that sense (of aiming for European football). It was an exceptional season. This time last year, I wasn’t working, so I was looking at it from afar, and perhaps when the results were coming in each weekend and Newcastle were still going strongly, I maybe felt, like a lot of people, they would do well to keep it going. But they did, they kept it going. Of course, they had a few hiccups along the way, but fought back again."
    • 13.00 Newcastle boss Alan Pardew welcomes back key defenders Fabricio Coloccini and Steven Taylor for the derby trip to Sunderland. Coloccini has missed the last seven games with a hamstring injury suffered on international duty, while Taylor damaged a calf in the 2-2 draw at Reading on September 29. Taylor is on the bench. Goalkeeper Tim Krul is also back from an elbow injury he sustained while away with Holland last month, while full-back Danny Simpson (hamstring) also makes it to start.
    • 12.55 Sunderland winger James McClean starts against Newcastle after shaking off a groin injury. The 23-year-old was ruled out of the Republic of Ireland’s 6-1 defeat by Germany with a groin problem, but manager Martin O’Neill has revealed he could have been available for Tuesday’s trip to the Faroe Islands if required. Full-back Phil Bardsley is on the bench after returning to action for the Under-21s side following an ankle injury.
