HUL
90+5
And that's it - Hull takes the three points!!!
90+4
Santon launches long but Davies rises highest to head clear - that could be their last chance!!
90+3
Aluko runs the ball into the corner and wins a free-kick that will help see the last couple of minutes out.
90+1
Injury to Chester as we enter the first of five minutes of the added stuff.
90'
OH DEAR!! Poor Remy misses a sitter. The ball breaks to the forward in the box and he is six yards out but he can’t get his feet right and volleys wide. Great first touch too.
89'
 
Huddlestone goes a fraction too soon the assistant referee’s flag is aloft but Huddlestone ignores the whistle and lifts the ball high over the bar. Yellow.
88'
Sagbo relieves some of the pressure as he goes into the corner as Newcastle look like they will lose a game that they twice led.
87'
Hull have a ten men behind the ball here as they try to squeeze the home side’s play. This time, Davies steps out to intercept a Ben Arfa through-ball and he launches long.
86'
 
Tiote on for Debuchy, who has struggled all afternoon.
Newcastle United Substitution
85'
Newcastle continue to go long but it just isn’t sticking – this time Remy can’t get to the lofted ball from Debuchy.
84'
 
Sagbo on for the luckless Graham.
Hull City Substitution
83'
Ben Arfa pulls back Rosenior to give the visitors a bit of a breather.
82'
The Magpies have their visitors pinned back but the final ball lacks the required quality – groans begin to grow in the stands.
81'
There is little wrong with Graham’s movement – this time Aluko finds him inside the box but his touch lets him down.
80'
Just the ten minutes to go – can Hull hold out?
79'
Newcastle doing well to stretch this game now – Anita is spraying balls from left to right and vice-versa.
77'
This is an incredible turnaround – what a strike if that’s the winner.
76'
 
WHAT A STRIKE! Aluko with a tremendously-controlled effort to volley left-footed from the edge of the box to give his side the lead. George Boyd with the cross.
74'
Newcastle look porous at the back when Hull break.
Hull City Substitution
73'
 
Bruce makes a change of his own, Meyler on for Brady.
73'
 
Cisse is withdrawn for Marveaux.
Newcastle United Substitution
72'
Once again, Newcastle’s delivery is not up to the required quality.
71'
Cisse again works the channels but Davies comes across to meet him and clear for a corner.
70'
Sissoko looks to charge forward but Graham works back to tackle him there – Hull move forward with pace and Elmohamady goes down under the challenge of Gouffran. No free-kick.
69'
Marveaux warming up for the home side.
68'
Has to be said, Hull shading it now and they have shown great character to come back from being behind twice.
67'
The free-kick is worked short to Elmohamady, who centres but Krul comes to punch under pressure from Davies.
66'
Debuchy, who has struggled all afternoon, is caught out of position and he hauls Livermore back.
65'
Huddlestone loses the ball in midfield with what can only be described as a lazy touch – but the former Tottenham man works back to make the interception.
64'
 
Boyd on for Quinn.
Hull City Substitution
63'
The kick is whipped to the far post but just above the head of Cisse – looks like he was caught unawares there as he appeared to duck out of it if anything.
62'
Sissoko wins a free-kick in a dangerous position from Aluko. Ben Arfa over the set-piece some 25 yards out and left of centre.
Newcastle United Substitution
61'
Looks like it may be a 4-4-2 for Newcastle now.
60'
 
Gouffran is on for Cabaye, who can’t continue.
58'
Davies wins a 50-50 with Cabaye – he follows through and catches him high on the leg. Slight hiatus for the injury to the Newcastle man.
57'
Brady looks a neat player – he has been at the centre of everything that has been good for the visitors, this time the flicked header finds Graham but he loses control of it.
56'
The hosts have reacted well to be pegged back for a second time – Sissoko makes a break down the right and fires the ball across. Cabaye goes down under the challenge of Elmohamady but the referee waves away the appeals.
55'
Again the delivery from the usually reliable Cabaye is not good enough – the ball breaks to Debuchy, who launches an effort high, wide and handsome.
54'
Ben Arfa now runs at the Hull defence – he skips past two challenges but his cross is cut out for a corner.
53'
Huddlestone has some range of passing – his great ball finds Brady but Krul comes to claim the ball.
52'
Remy again down the channel – but Chester comes across to clear.
51'
Cabaye sends it over but it is poor – the clearance goes straight back to the Frenchman who throws the ball back towards the box but it is out for a goal-kick.
50'
Cabaye finds Santon down the left and his cross is cut out for a corner.
49'
Graham has half a chance but he is sorely lacking confidence and Coloccini clears.
48'
 
GOOOAL!! Elmohamady rises highest to flick the Brady free-kick past Krul and in off the post. The former Sunderland man was in acres – poor defending.
47'
Early free-kick for Hull - Brady over it from the wing.
46'
And we’re back underway here.
45+2
And that's it from the first half.
45'
Two of the added stuff here.
44'
 
GOOOAL! What a finish. Santon finds Cabaye on the edge and he works a yard to shoot but his effort is blocked by Chester. Unfortunately for Hull the ball falls to Remy who instinctively re-arranges his feet to tuck the ball home from 12 yards out and at an angle.
42'
Santon getting further and further forward now.
42'
Newcastle finishing in the ascendancy.
41'
Almost a loose back pass from Yanga-Mbiwa there but Graham fails to chase it down with any sort of conviction and Krul lashes it up field.
40'
Ben Arfa gets the ball from Cisse, who again works the channels well, and works a bit of space but rather than shoot he lays off to Cabaye who whips an effort toward the top corner – it doesn’t have the required accuracy though.
39'
Sissoko, who was dominant early on, is on the periphery now and Newcastle are missing his dynamism.
37'
That tactic of going long is beginning to stretch the game and the home side are failing to get the men in support as they did earlier.
35'
This is anyone’s game now – Hull’s tactics of going long in behind are beginning to work here.
34'
Chance!! Graham scraps for a high ball and it falls to Livermore who takes a touch and then sees his effort blocked. Hull coming into it here.
33'
Graham. Dear me, his luck needs to change. Huddlestone finds him in acres clear through but his touch lets him down and Coloccini recovers to clear.
32'
Cisse is working the channels well and he finds Santon who shoots from distance but it is high and wide.
31'
Newcstle, having started so well, are forcing things now and are getting a bit frustrated.
30'
Hull clearly think they can get some joy from Debuchy as they continually target him with balls in behind.
29'
To be fair to Hull, they have stuck to their game plan and have reaped the rewards.
28'
Aluko receives the ball with his back to goal and turns and shoots – it is a rudimentary save from the keeper though.
27'
That Krul save. What a save. He spreads himself before then hooking the ball clear as Graham looked to get to the rebound. The keeper deserved better from his defence after that.
26'
 
GOOOAL!! Brady with the leveller. Newcastle fail to adequately clear their lines from that Graham chance. Aluko gets the ball just outside the D and finds Brady in acres left of him. He takes a touch to steady himself before firing through the legs of Krul.
24'
What a chance. Miraculous save from Krul from Graham whose header is saved from point blank range. What a save.
23'
Rosenior looks for Aluko in behind Debuchy but Yanga-Mbiwa comes across to clear.
22'
Hull are sitting very deep without the ball so when they do recover it they have so much to do - they need to step up a bit.
21'
Remy is having a field day at the moment.
20'
Remy gets in a one-on-one situation with Chester, he speeds past him before lifting a ball into the box – it evades the jump of Cisse but Ben Arfa picks it up at the far post. He is challenged by Rosenior though and the ball comes off the Newcastle player for a goal-kick.
18'
Double block from first Anita and then Coloccini after Yanga-Mbiwa strides out from the back before losing it. Livermore with the shots but Hull are seeing more of the ball now certainly.
17'
Newcastle’s width is causing all kinds of problems to the visitors – with their full-backs pushed right on in support.
16'
Debuchy gets in behind but his cut-back is cleared by Chester.
15'
Davies gets to the resultant corner but can’t get the required connection – there is an almighty scramble before it is hacked clear.
14'
Brady swings a decent ball back post but it is cleared by Anita.
14;25
Steven Taylor has been ruled out after suffering a training ground injury; while Jonas Gutierrez is still working his way back to full fitness. Shola Ameobi also misses out. Other than that Newcastle have a full squad to choose from - so Alan Pardew has named an unchanged starting line-up.
13'
Ben Arfa isolates his left-back, Rosenior, drops his shoulder and comes inside before shooting but it is blocked by a combination of two or three Hull players.
12'
Brady looks Hull’s likeliest avenue back into this game – he has made some great charges down the left already but the game is passing Huddlestone at the moment.
11'
What wonders a few wins will do. Newcastle are stroking the ball around beautifully.
10'
 
GOOOAL!! Remy – Sissoko slings the ball to the back post that Cisse takes on first time on the volley. While he doesn’t catch it right, his effort bounces over the defender to the head of Remy who nods Newcastle into the lead early.
9'
Sissoko is a power-house in midfield – he is dictating from the middle.
8'
Hull getting into the game a little more now.
7'
Livermore plays a one-two before sliding the ball to Aluko, who, some thirty yards out, ignores the run of Graham and shoots on sight. While it is a well-struck effort, it hits Graham.
6'
Yanga-Mbiwa intercepts an attempted through-ball and charges forward before firing high and wild.
5'
Sissoko and Remy link well again down the left – Remy’s cross is blocked though for a throw.
4'
This has been a bright, confident start from the home side – they could win three in a row in the Premier League for the first time since March-April 2012.
3'
Remy finds Sissoko, who gets the ball out of his feet before sending a powerful effort toward goal – it is charged down though.
2'
Remy looks to get in behind right away but McGregor is alert to the danger.
1'
Kick-off as Martin Atkinson gives his whistle a toot.
14:55
MATCH ODDS: Newcastle 11/13, Hull 21/5, Draw 13/5.
14:50
Hull have won only one of their last 11 games in the Barclays Premier League, drawing four and losing six. Danny Graham has now gone 20 Premier League appearances without scoring, with his last Premier League goal coming on January 1st.
14:45
STATS: Newcastle haven’t won three Premier League games in succession since a spell of six on the spin in March-April 2012. Hatem Ben Arfa has mustered more attempts from open play than any other Premier League player this season (13).
14:40
Steve Bruce on injuries: "The one thing you need is a little bit of luck where these things are concerned and we've lost at least a couple this week. Robert is the main one, we expect him to out for six to eight weeks and that's a big loss. Then there's McShane and Figueroa...though we don't expect them to be out for more than a week or 10 days. All of a sudden from everyone being okay a week ago we have got two or three struggling."
14:35
Alan Pardew (on Yohan Cabaye): "As far as I'm concerned, especially on Saturday, it would be nice if our 51,000, 52,000 [fans], whatever it is, give him the support he now deserves for at least apologising for that and taking the punishment that came with it. That's a signal to the players here and players elsewhere as well that until the contract is signed with another club, there is a responsibility to the club you are at."
14:30
Captain Robert Koren has a fractured bone in his right foot keeping him out of action for anything up to two months. Left-back Maynor Figueroa is suffering from a groin complaint but has also been granted compassionate leave to attend to a family problem in Honduras, while Paul McShane is out with a hamstring injury. Robbie Brady, will play through the pain of a strained stomach muscle, though.
14:20
