FULL-TIME

Newcastle 1-2 Watford

Joyous scenes from the Watford players as they depart the pitch. Newcastle have now won only three of 25 Premier League games in 2015. Oh dear. 

Safe trip home if you've been at the game. See you soon. 

FULL-TIME

Newcastle 1-2 Watford

And that's it. A famous win for Watford, who achieve successive Premier League wins. A very telling time for Newcastle, who start this season in much the same way as last.

Newcastle 1-2 Watford

It's all looking pretty desperate for Newcastle as they can't find their way through Watford's defence.

Watford defending for their lives as two Newcastle crosses are cleared in succession. 

Newcastle 1-2 Watford

Four minutes of added time. Time for a goal?

YELLOW CARD

Newcastle 1-2 Watford

Jack Colback goes into the book for a foul on Odion Ighalo despite replays showing he might have got the ball. Soon after, Allan Nyom skies over when well placed after a smart run. 

SUBSTITUTION

Newcastle 1-2 Watford

Last change for both teams as Watford's Ben Watson is replaced by Adlene Guedioura and Newcastle's Gabriel Obertan comes on for Florian Thauvin. Daryl Janmaat is OK then. 

Newcastle 1-2 Watford

Daryl Janmaat is in a spot of bother with cramp. He's certainly shown his appetite to get Newcastle back in the game today. 

YELLOW CARD

Newcastle 1-2 Watford

Etienne Capoue is booked after bringing down Georginio Wijnaldum. Soon after Newcastle fans appeal for penalty as Ayoze Perez goes down in the area, but it looked like he lost his footing. 

SUBSTITUTIONS

Newcastle 1-2 Watford

A change for either side as Watford's Nathan Ake replaces Jurado and Rolando Aarons comes on for Newcastle's Massadio Haidara. 

CLOSE!

Newcastle 1-2 Watford

Georginio Wijnaldum bursts down the inside right channel, feeds Siem De Jong, but the striker's shot is straight down the throat of Heurelho Gomes, who has had a busy afternoon. 

"McClaren has a lot of work to do"

Garth Crooks

Final Score

"All credit to Watford, who look like they have deserved this result, though I'm really frustrated by the Newcastle performance. They have been poor, there has been no cutting edge and Steve McClaren has a lot of work to do."

SUBSTITUTION

Newcastle 1-2 Watford

Watford attacker Almen Abdi is replaced by Steven Berghuis as Allan Nyom bursts down the right but cannot find a Watford player with his low cross.

Frank Meehan:  Surely the rule amongst football managers is never manage Newcastle. Why did McClaren? Always going to be a disaster.

Newcastle 1-2 Watford

Florian Thauvin leads a Newcastle charge, but pulls his shot well wide from 25 yards. Newcastle need a goal, and soon. 

Newcastle 1-2 Watford

Troy Deeney has been a colossus today for Watford. Odion Ighalo may get the headlines, but the Watford skipper has been an inspiration to his team-mates as he harries the Newcastle defence once more.

"The atmosphere is a lot more positive inside St James' Park now." 

Janmaat has "a bit of bottle"

Newcastle 1-2 Watford

Garth Crooks

Final Score

"Daryl Janmaat is one of the few players in the Newcastle side that has a bit of bottle, a bit of something about him. Newcastle are in trouble and he is trying to affect the game."

Newcastle 1-2 Watford

Daryl Janmaat leading Newcastle's riposte single-handedly now. His cross is just flicked wide by Siem De Jong. 

CLOSE!

Newcastle 1-2 Watford

Daryl Janmaat has a taste for this now. He bursts down the right and wins a corner. It's cleared but eventually falls to the Dutchman and he strikes left-footed from 25 yards only for Heurelho Gomes to superbly tip it round the post. 

Some of the crowd thought that was in. 

Newcastle 1-2 Watford

Chance for Watford but as Troy Deeney plays a one-two on the edge of the box, Chancel Mbemba beats the Watford striker to the return ball and pokes it out for a corner, which comes to nothing. 

GOAL - Daryl Janmaat

Newcastle 1-2 Watford

Daryl Janmaat scores a second goal of the season, and it's all of his own making. He feeds Moussa Sissoko, continues his run and when the cross comes in he arrives to clip it past Heurelho Gomes.

Newcastle 0-2 Watford

Moussa Sissoko has room on the right for Newcastle but his low cross is cleared by the impressive Sebastian Prodl. The Austrian has had a good game alongside centre-back partner Craig Cathcart. 

Newcastle 0-2 Watford

The more Newcastle press for a goal, the more gaps appear for a Watford counter attack. Intriguingly poised now. 

Newcastle 0-2 Watford

Florian Thauvin crosses from the left, it finds his Newcastle team-mate Ayoze Perez around the penalty spot, but the Watford defence crowd him out and block his effort. 

Newcastle 0-2 Watford

Having relinquished possession to Newcastle, Watford go close on a couple of occasions as Troy Deeney links well with Odion Ighalo, but the Nigerian cannot find his team-mate with a return pass. Dangerous, though. 

Newcastle crosses

Newcastle 0-2 Watford

You know what I was saying about those Newcastle crosses? Only one has found a Newcastle shirt, and that was on the other side of the pitch. As I write this, another delivery clips off the head of Moussa Sissoko and runs out of play.

Newcastle 0-2 Watford

You have to wonder what Newcastle midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum makes of it all. Having signed from PSV Eindhoven for £14.5m in the summer, the Dutch side were beating Manchester United in the Champions League in midweek. 

Newcastle 0-2 Watford

Nice move from Newcastle, but when Florian Thauvin shoots it is blocked easily by Watford defender Allan Nyom. Ayoze Perez is close to a subsequent cross moments later. 

Newcastle 0-2 Watford

More catching practice for Heurelho Gomes in the Watford goal. Newcastle's crosses have not found their targets very often this afternoon. 

Newcastle 0-2 Watford

Siem De Jong was signed under previous Newcastle boss Alan Pardew. The Dutchman has scored twice since his £6m move in July 2014, but was injured for most of last season. 

Meanwhile on the pitch, Troy Deeney shoots for Watford but it is deflected wide. 

KICK-OFF

Newcastle 0- 2 Watford

Newcastle striker Siem De Jong comes on for Papiss Cisse as Watford get us under way again.

Tom in Kent: Really could be all change in the North East next season. Newcastle and Sunderland swapping places with Middlesbrough? That would be the ultimate changing of the guard.

Adam: Is anyone really surprised at Newcastle's current plight? A poor team with no history of success and a manager who has failed in almost every job he has had isn't going to be a glorious marriage, is it?

HALF-TIME

Newcastle started to find their way as the first half ended, but with Watford two goals to the good, it is a long way back.

Good possession from Newcastle but another Florian Thauvin cross is collected by Heurelho Gomes. And that's it for the half.

Two minutes of added time as Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul rushes from his goal to clear ahead of Troy Deeney.

Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores is a suave looking fella, and has a positive aura about him as he retrieves the ball. With his team 2-0 up, why not?
