    • FT The referee blows up for full-time and Luke Moore's late goal is enough to hand Swansea a 1-0 victory!

    • 82' Something has got under the skin of Swansea defender Williams and he's having a very strong word with Sissoko. The referee steps in to defuse the situation.
    • 81' Sissoko picks the ball up on the halfway line and drives forward only to see his strike flash wide of the post!

    • 71' Cabaye's set-pieces deliveries have, on the whole, been poor this afternoon.

    • 66' Off the crossbar! Cabaye lets rip with a fierce shot from 25 yards but Vorm tips it onto the bar and out for a corner. So close for the visitors!
    • 65' Swansea haven't really got going yet in this second half and certainly aren't looking as fluid as they did at times in the first 45.

    • 57' Would Cisse have been better off bringing the ball down and picking out the corner rather than trying to rip the net off?
    • 56' Newcastle go close! Sissoko flicks a header on to Cisse, who slips through the Swansea defence, but the striker fires a fierce volley over from the edge of the box!
    • 55' Elliot's kicking has been poor this afternoon and the Newcastle keeper send another clearance straight into the stands.

    • 41' Cisse goes through the back of Davies and the referee pulls the Senegal striker over for a strong word but no card.
    • 40' Tiote catches Hernandez to give Swansea a free-kick. The Newcasttle midfielder has already been booked and will have to be careful...
    • 38' Du Guzman fires in a superb free-kick but the unmarked Monk mis-times his header from six yards! That was the best chance of the match so far but the Swansea captain failed to take advantage and put his header miles over.
    • 37' Cabaye rightly gets a yellow card for that challenge on Dyer, who is back to his feet and able to continue.

    • 34' Tiote is penalised for a high foot on Dyer and is the first player to go into the book.
    • 33' Alan Pardew is furious with Davies' challenge on Gutierrez. It was strong and mistimed but not malicious and the referee is happy to let the young left-back off with only a talking to.
    • 32' Cabaye whips in the corner and Monk just about gets enough on his defensive header to clear.
    • 31' Sissoko takes on Rangel on the left flank and wins a corner for his troubles.

    • 28' De Guzman slides in an attempt to win the ball from Sissoko but gives away a foul and injured himself in the process.

    • 24' Newcastle win a second corner but Cabaye overhits his cross.

    • 18' Alan Pardew is frantically waving his arms on the sidelines, trying to get his side to calm down and keep possession.
    • 17' Newcastle have looked shaky at the back in these opening 17 minutes, not least goalkeeper Elliot, who was lucky Taylor was on hand to clear De Guzman's shot a few minutes ago with Michu ready to pounce.
    • 16' Newcastle have conceded two goals in each of their last three games but have won two of those matches.
    • 15' Handball?! Debuchy handles in the area under pressure from Davies but the referee waves play on. No penalty!

    • 13' Taylor has to stretch to meet the free-kick but can only nod his tame header straight at Vorm.

    • 10' Newcastle's defence was at sixes and sevens there, with both Michu and Williams allowed to ghost behind the line to meet De Guzman's free-kick.
    • 9' Off the line! De Guzman delivers the free-kick, Michu flicks it on and Williams sees his mis-hit shot hacked off the line by Taylor!
    • 8' Dyer is up-ended Tiote to hand Swansea a free-kick midway inside the Newcastle half. That's the second foul Tiote has committed so the referee has a quick word.
    • 7' Swansea have come to life and, after Newcastle enjoyed the better of the opening few minutes, are dominating possession in midfield.
    • 6' Hernandez skips past his man on the left flank but overhits his cross. Rangel is there to pick-up the loose ball on the opposite flank and delivers a low cross which only just evades Michu before Newcastle clear.

We have tried to be aggressive all year, even with teams that perhaps didn't have the quality to play that way. Your squad comes together, but it takes a while for it to click into gear. Fortunately, we almost hit the ground running when the new guys arrived."
    • 14:35 Swansea can expect a heroes return at the Libery Stadium after their Carling Cup triumph but boss Laudrup has warned his players not to get wrapped up in that victory: "There might be a negative reaction after winning the cup - I hope not - but it's a possibility. I hope the players go out and play the best game of the season, because this is the first game after the cup final, we are playing at home in front of our fans with the cup on display, so I hope - but I don't know."
