Norwich 3-2 Newcastle

They thought it was all over, it is now. Is it all over for Newcastle?

'Surely that will be that'

Chris Sutton

Former Norwich striker at Carrow Road for 5 live Sport

"That sums this game up! You couldn't see a way back for Norwich with Newcastle totally dominant, but the Canaries got a break on. Olsson drilled the ball home past Karl Darlow and surely, surely that will be that."

What a finish to this game!

Jonas Olsson's angled shot goes through legs and finds Karl Darlow's bottom left. 

Wow! Wow! Wow!

INCREDIBLE SAVE!

Norwich 2-2 Newcastle

John Ruddy pulls off one of the most crucial saves of the season. 

The ball is played into the Norwich area. Aleksandar Mitrovic heads it back towards goal and finds Papiss Cisse. The striker heads towards goal but Ruddy somehow palms it away.

'Mitrovic held his nerve'

Chris Sutton

Former Norwich striker at Carrow Road for 5 live Sport

"I said this game wasn't over! I think that's a correct decision by referee Mike Dean, and a needless handball by Norwich. 

"A short run-up from Mitrovic for the penalty, but he held his nerve. Ruddy went the right way but great power, right into the corner."

That's two for the Serbian. 

The summer signing places the ball into John Ruddy's left-hand corner. The keeper went the right way, but the kick was too good.

PENALTY TO NEWCASTLE

Norwich 2-1 Newcastle

Incredible. Gary O'Neil handles in the area after the ball bounced up awkwardly. Aleksandar Mitrovic takes responsibility. No pressure.

SUBSTITUTION

Norwich 2-1 Newcastle

Dieumerci Mbokani, who has been frankly brilliant, comes off and is replaced by Cameron Jerome.

"Norwich got right back onto the front foot after conceding the goal. Mbokani's effort was thundered into the far top corner. Darlow had absolutely no chance."

What a strike!

Canaries forward Dieumerci Mbokani drives into the left side of the area and lashes the ball high past Karl Darlow.

That was unstoppable. Newcastle's lead lasted about three minutes.

GOAL - Norwich 1-1 Newcastle

Aleksandar Mitrovic

He's only gone and done it again.

The saviour against Sunderland heads in from eight yards from a great Andros Townsend cross.

What a boost for the Magpies. Can they go on to win this?

Norwich 1-0 Newcastle

Norwich's Andre Wisdom smacks a 20-yard shot that clears Karl Darlow's bar by about three feet.

Another home goal would surely end this encounter as a contest.

At the other end Aleksandar Mitrovic's low shot from 12 yards is well held by John Ruddy.

Norwich 1-0 Newcastle

The corner comes to nothing, but the Magpies are back on the attack. It's looking a fraction better for the visitors.

Norwich 1-0 Newcastle

Matt Jarvis goes down in the area after a fleet-footed move, but referee Mike Dean didn't see anything wrong with it.

At the other end, Newcastle have a corner and Mitrovic is on for Vurnon Anita. Moussa Sissoko goes to left-back.

SUBSTITUTION

Norwich 1-0 Newcastle

Derby hero Aleksandar Mitrovic is about to come on for Newcastle.

Norwich 1-0 Newcastle

Newcastle have a corner after arguably their best move of the match involving Dayl Janmaat and Andros Townsend.

However, goalscorer Timm Klose easily clears.

'How big a miss could that be?'

"Cisse has to score. How big a miss could that be in the context of Newcastle's season? What a chance!"

Norwich 1-0 Newcastle

The corner comes to nothing, but it was a nervy clearance by the Magpies defence.

CLOSE!

Norwich 1-0 Newcastle

Andros Townsend does what he does well - comes in from the wing and fires a low shot that John Ruddy parries into the path of the fast-arriving Papiss Cisse, who somehow fires horribly wide from four yards.

The Senegal striker was flagged offside, but the replays showed he was on.

At the other end, Norwich have a corner.

Norwich 1-0 Newcastle

Papiss Cisse tries another audacious effort from the left. A first-time half volley from Jonjo Shelvey's long raking pass. Cisse's shot clears John Ruddy's bar by about two feet.

Norwich 1-0 Newcastle

Norwich back on the attack. This time Matt Jarvis' low cross has to be turned behind for a corner. Goalscorer Timm Klose is back up.

KICK-OFF

Norwich 1-0 Newcastle

The Canaries get us back under way.

SUBSTITUTION

"A ridiculous free-kick to concede from Newcastle. But that delivery from Robbie Brady was bang on the money. Timm Klose jumped highest but could Karl Darlow have come for it? He elected to stay on his line. 

"How big a goal could that be for Norwich?"

HALF-TIME

Norwich 1-0 Newcastle

How will Newcastle respond? Can they respond?

Judging by the first-half display, it's unlikely.

GOAL - Norwich 1-0 Newcastle

It was coming and comes just before the HT whistle.

Robbie Brady swings in another teasing ball into the six-yard area from the right and there is 6ft 4in Switzerland international Timm Klose to head in.

A huge, huge goal. 

STOPPAGE TIME

Norwich 0-0 Newcastle

There's one minute of it. Norwich have another free-kick on the right and about 40 yards out.

Norwich 0-0 Newcastle

They haven't had many, and the travelling fans expect better.

Newcastle midfielder Jonjo Shelvey, who probably has the best shot on him in the Magpies side, fires an effort from 20 yards well over the bar.

Terrible.

"All of Norwich's joy is down the right-hand side, exploiting the fact that Anita is not playing in his natural position."

Norwich 0-0 Newcastle

I'm sure this just happened.

While tussling in the area prior to a corner, Norwich's Steven Naismith appeared to tickle Daryl Janmaat's Dutch jewels. The full-back looked at him quizzically. 

Anyway, as you were.

WHAT A SAVE!

You can get a Travis Bickle haircut Karl Darlow if you continue to make saves like that.

The 25-year-old instinctively sticks out a foot to block Dieumerci Mbokani's close range first-timer from Steven Naismith's pull-back.

Superb reflexes.

HALF-DECENT SAVE!

Norwich 0-0 Newcastle

Robbie Brady's angled sidefoot shot from 15 yards is pushed away by Karl Darlow. The former Forest keeper would have been disappointed if he let that in.

Newcastle's Jonjo Shelvey drives into the penalty area on the right but his square ball is cut out. The visiting supporters almost got out of their seats.

Norwich 0-0 Newcastle

Newcastle clear easily, but surely it's only a matter of time for the Canaries.

Norwich 0-0 Newcastle

It's foul o'clock by Newcastle players. This time Vurnon Anita, playing at left-back, takes out Dieumerci Mbokani. Expect the ball to be swung in from 40 yards.

Norwich 0-0 Newcastle

It's a poor kick that trundles through to the hands of Karl Darlow.

Norwich have a corner now after good work by Steven Naismith. It's looking ominous for the Magpies.

'It was offside'

Garth Crooks

Former Spurs striker on Final Score

"A great call from the referee's assistant in disallowing that - it was offside, though the ball from Howson was superb."
