Newcastle 2-3 Swansea

John Roder

Match of the Day commentator at St James' Park

"Siem De Jong's goal - having been out virtually all season with injury - was the only bright spot for Newcastle. Seven successive defeats for the Magpies who are in huge trouble. Swansea set a new club points record in the Premier League by reaching 50 for the season."

Alex Richardson in Sheffield: Is this really the same Newcastle team that beat the so-called invincible Chelsea side back in December?

Chris, Ex-NUFC fan in Towcester: Maybe we were a little hasty in getting rid of Joe Kinnear.

FULL-TIME

Newcastle 2-3 Swansea

Siem De Jong finds himself on the ball but fires wide. And that is that. Seven straight defeats for Newcastle.

YELLOW CARD

Newcastle 2-3 Swansea

Swans keeper Lukasz Fabianski is busier now than he has been for the whole match. Marvin Emnes goes into the book for time-wasting.

Newcastle 2-3 Swansea

Newcastle win a corner and everyone is up including Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul, who almost punches it into the net before Lukasz Fabianski claims. Er, you can't use your hands in that box Tim!

Newcastle 2-3 Swansea

Vernon Anita delivers a deep cross but Swan keeper Lukasz Fabianski sprints from his goal-line to make a strong claim. Exactly what you need from your last defender when you're hanging on.

Newcastle 2-3 Swansea

Four minutes of added time.

Newcastle 2-3 Swansea

So what now Newcastle? Swansea do well to keep possession and keep their opponents out of their own half. The home fans are urging their team forward.

GOAL

Newcastle 2-3 Swansea - Siem De Jong

Wow, do we have a comeback on our hands? Out for most of the season but that doesn't stop Dutch striker Siem De Jong heading in Jack Colback's cross for his first of the season. Great timing.

Newcastle 1-3 Swansea

Alas, the corner and a second one soon after are cleared by the Swansea defence. Swans skipper Ashley Williams has been a towering presence for his team today.

John Hartson

Former Wales striker on Final Score

"Newcastle are already on 35 points. You wonder whether the bottom three will reach 35 points. There are only five or six games to go - if there were more games I would worry about Newcastle. But they will just about be ok."

Newcastle 1-3 Swansea

Five minutes left and the bustle has gone out of this game, not helped by the vast swathes of empty seats. Newcastle need some energy and win a corner.

Newcastle 1-3 Swansea

Dave Candlish in Gateshead: The only thing that will save Newcastle from going down is that there might just be three teams worse than them in the Premier League.

Peter Sagar in Newcastle: Mike Ashley is systematically destroying a once great club. He should be deemed not fit to own a football club.

SUBSTITUTION

Newcastle 1-3 Swansea

Swansea goalscorer Gylfi Sigurdsson is now taking a well-earned rest. Marvin Emnes takes his place in midfield. Plenty of room now, you suspect another goal might be in the offing.

Newcastle 1-3 Swansea

Jonjo Shelvey is on the attack now. The Swansea midfielder smacks it straight at Tim Krul as he almost punches it away.

Newcastle 1-3 Swansea

Ayoze Perez on the run this time for Newcastle. He drives towards the edge of the penalty area, turns Ashley Williams but his effort from 20 yards is wide of the left-hand post.

Newcastle 1-3 Swansea

Good chance for Ayoze Perez, who has time to steady himself as the ball drops to him 14 yards out, but his shot does not have enough power to beat Lukasz Fabianski. That could be costly.

Newcastle 1-3 Swansea

Newcastle fans aren't happy.

Oh dear this could get worse for Newcastle. Fabricio Coloccini slides to block Gylfi Sigurdsson's goal-bound shot and it is out for a corner but the Swansea attack comes to an end.

SUBSTITUTION

Newcastle 1-3 Swansea

Double change for Newcastle as Siem de Jong comes on to replace Remy Cabella. Adam Armstrong is on for Emmanuel Riviere. De Jong has been out injured since February. Can he be a saviour?

Newcastle 1-3 Swansea

Nelson Oliveira has had a hand in all three goals so far. A very tidy day's work for the Portuguese forward. Newcastle fans heading for the exit as the team stares a seventh consecutive defeat in the face.

GOAL

Newcastle 1-3 Swansea - Jack Cork

Jack Cork
PA

Very nice goal and it's all down to the work of Jack Cork. He picks the ball up in midfield, threads his way towards the Newcastle penalty area, passes wide to Nelson Oliveira and receives the return pass to slot home.

SUBSTITUTION

Newcastle 1-2 Swansea

That's time for Swansea's Jefferson Montero, who is replaced by Matt Grimes on the left.

Newcastle 1-2 Swansea

The game is becoming a bit more stretched now. Jonjo Shelvey finds room to pick out Nathan Dyer on the right and the visitors are starting to find a passing rhythm.

Newcastle 1-2 Swansea

Ryan Taylor now has the unenviable task of keeping Swansea winger Jefferson Montero in check. But the Ecuadorian looks like he is struggling with an injury too as Jack Colback shows some steel for Newcastle. They need it.

Peter Collins: Ever since they scored, I've been waiting for Newcastle to fall behind. No sympathy, they shouldn't have forced Pardew out.

Charlie Fee: How did Newcastle get to 35 points this season...? I struggle to remember such a poor side staying up

SUBSTITUTION

Newcastle 1-2 Swansea

Daryl Janmaat looks like he is struggling a bit. He's had a proper workout against Jefferson Montero. The Newcastle defender is replaced by midfielder Mehdi Abeid. Ryan Taylor goes into right-back.

Newcastle 1-2 Swansea

More pressure as Newcastle win another corner after Ashley Williams heads clear. Ryan Taylor cannot find a target though. Ayoze Perez then tries his luck from a left-wing cross in open play but Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski gathers easily. No lack of effort from the hosts but lacking a bit of quality.

Newcastle 1-2 Swansea

Nelson Oliveira is clean through on the Newcastle goal but the pass is just too long for him as Tim Krul races from his goal to clear. Jefferson Montero is starting to cause real problems fro Newcastle now. As if he hasn't already!

Newcastle 1-2 Swansea

Frustration echoes around St James' Park as Jonas Gutierrez chops down Jonjo Shelvey. Newcastle have a corner with Ryan Taylor but Ashley Williams heads away.

Newcastle 1-2 Swansea

That was Gylfi Sigurdsson's eighth goal of the season and Swansea are chasing a third consecutive win at St James' Park.

Newcastle 1-2 Swansea

So much of that fast start by Newcastle. Looking a bit grim now for them. They are a side that is seriously short on confidence.

GOAL

Newcastle 1-2 Swansea - Gylfi Sigurdsson

Gylfi Sigurdsson
PA

Poor clearance from Tim Krul, and when it is worked to Jefferson Montero on the left, his low cross is dummied by Nelson Oliveira allowing the onrushing Gylfi Sigurdsson to guide in from 10 yards. Nice goal.

Newcastle 1-1 Swansea

Newcastle win an free-kick in Ryan Taylor territory about 30 yards out and to the left of the Swansea penalty area. But his shot narrowly misses the upright. Good effort.

Newcastle 1-1 Swansea

Jefferson Montero versus Daryl Janmaat is one of the more intriguing battles so far. And they are at it again as Newcastle defender Janmaat forces his opponent back up the pitch.

KICK-OFF

Newcastle 1-1 Swansea

Back under way, no changes to the two teams. Can Newcastle recover from that blow?

Milo Thompson: Carver is better suited to managing one of Ashley's sports retail stores than a football team #GoingDown

Newcastle 1-1 Swansea

It all looked so good for Newcastle until that equaliser. Still, they came flying out for the second half against Tottenham last week. Can they do it again?
