    Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    No. No-one can beat Jack Butland today. He's been immense for Stoke and the main reason his side are leaving  St James' Park with a point. 

    That's it from this game but you can catch all the reaction to Saturday's games right here.

    Jack Butland is at it again. Substitute Jamaal Lascelles gets on the end of a free-kick and almost makes an immediate impact only for his header to be tipped over the bar.

    Aleksandar Mitrovic is making a proper nuisance of himself as he's brought down by Stoke defender Ryan Shawcross. Referee Roger East has a word with the Potters defender but no yellow card.

  10. Handbags

    Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    Aleksandar Mitrovic is also turning out to be a bit of character. He goes down clutching his face after clashing with Philipp Wollscheid but it's an over-reaction to say the least. Both players are booked.

    Stoke keeper Jack Butland is by far the busier keeper and he's in the thick of the action again as he palms an Ayoze Perez shot wide.

    Is he going to blow? Aleksandar Mitrovic was given a talking to before that last chance after clashing with Stoke defender Ryan Shawcross.

  16. CLOSE!

    Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    Moussa Sissoko plays a one-two with Georginio Wijnaldum and is through on goal but on-rushing keeper Jack Butland manages to get enough of a touch to the midfielder's shot to help the ball bounce over. 

    Chancel Mbemba heads narrowly wide at the near post from the resulting corner.

  17. CLOSE!

    Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    This time it's Stoke who go close. Marko Arnautovic swings in a cross for Jon Walters, whose initial header is well saved by keeper Rob Elliot before the Stoke striker's follow-up volley goes wildly over.

    David: The only winners at the Newcastle v Stoke game are the clever fans who stayed away. It's a shocking display.

    Tom: Newcastle v Stoke had ZERO time added after 45 minutes. When did that last happen?  

    Steve McClaren

    Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    It looked like we might have been in for a good game at St James' Park to start with but, apart from that Aleksandar Mitrovic header coming back off the Stoke post, it's faded into a bit of a low-key affair. 

  24. Post update

    Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    Both these teams are just lacking a bit of quality to make the most of any promising situations at the moment. Bojan Krkic and Xherdan Shaquiri struggling to make an impact for Stoke.

    Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    Ayoze Perez goes down in the Stoke area after showing some nimble footwork but any hopes of him thinking he might get a penalty are wiped away by referee Roger East. The Newcastle forward also gets an earful from Stoke defender Ryan Shawcross, who was unhappy at Perez's antics.

    Stoke midfielder Charlie Adam tries an ambitious 35-yarder and it goes well over. The Potters are being well marshalled at the moment.

    Here's how the game is shaping up possession wise...

    Newcastle v Stoke

    Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    Aleksandar Mitrovic is a bit of a powerhouse and he gets on the end of a cross from the left only to see his flicked header came back off the post. Georginio Wijnaldum tries to pounce on the rebound but Stoke keeper Jack Butland and his defence scramble the ball clear.

  29. Post update

    Stoke attack with Charlie Adam and he finds Jon Walters but his pass out wide wrong-foots Xherdan Shaqiri, who shows a bit of frustration.

  30. Best seat in the house

    Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    Stoke City may have made the long trip to the north east this afternoon, but it's a home game for injured defender Marc Muniesa.  

  31. CLOSE!

    Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    Stoke have a couple of corners cleared before Adam whips in a low cross from the left flank and, even though Magpies defender Chancel Mbemba misses it, Stoke striker Jon Walters can't capitalise as he fails to make contact at the far post as well. 

  32. Post update

    Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    Ayoze Perez tries to slide a pass through to Moussa Sissoko but Stoke centre-back Philipp Wollscheid does well to intercept it and clear the ball away for a corner.

    Lively. Very lively. This game has already got a bit of a frenetic feel about it. Aleksandar Mitrovic appears up for it today - when doesn't he - and he has a shot deflected over for a corner.

    Aleksandar Mitrovic cuts inside from the left and has a pop at goal but his low shot is saved by keeper Jack Butland. At the other end, Paul Dummett looks like he clips Bojan Krkic right on the edge of the area but referee Roger east waves play on.

    We've had an open start to the game. A Newcastle attack broke down and Stoke counter-attacked with Bjoan Krkic and Xherdan Shaqiri as they were also thwarted. 

    Let's hope it's a sign of things to come.

    Kevin Kilbane

    Former Everton defender on Football Focus

    "Stoke's results have been similar to they were under Tony Pulis. Overall they'll have to spend significantly if they are going to move up to the next level. They don't have the funds to get to that next level. They're a good side to watch and they've got players in that side who are exciting, but it comes back to the tried and tested players like Jon Walters."

  41. Hughes support for McClaren

    Newcastle v Stoke (15:00 GMT)

    Stoke City boss Mark Hughes

    Newcastle can be a bit of a soap opera at times but Stoke manager Mark Hughes has backed his counterpart Steve McClaren to succeed at St James' Park.

    "There are huge demands and it seems to be a club that sways from one issue to another," said Hughes.

    "It seems there is a little bit of noise that surrounds the club and that that has been the case for any number of years.

    "Whoever is the manager has to deal with that and it is sometimes the issues off the field rather than on the field that seem to take up their time.

    "But Steve is a very experienced manager who has been through these kinds of periods before. Steve will be looking to turn things around very quickly - and I'm sure he will."

  42. McClaren sees progress

    Newcastle v Stoke (15:00 GMT)

    Newcastle United manager Steve McClaren

    Newcastle might have lost to rivals Sunderland last week but they looked the better side before going behind and events going rapidly downhill for them after centre-back Fabricio Coloccini being sent off.

    "If we play like that and keep 11 players on the pitch, we will win eight or nine out of 10 games. You can see the progress. Some of our football was fantastic and that's progress.

    "You don't have to be rocket scientists and experts in football to know that we dominated that game. We felt a lot of injustice against us.

    "But you can't feel sorry for yourselves and you have to get back to work. We have done that, I think the fans have moved on quickly and what we have got to do is keep reproducing those performances week in, week out.

  44. Can Newcastle overcome sense of injustice?

    Newcastle United v Stoke City (15:00 GMT)

    Steve Bower

    BBC football commentator at St James' Park

    "Having had all week to reflect on the derby defeat and overcome their feeling of injustice, Newcastle will look to start afresh once more and build on their solitary victory so far under Steve McClaren.

    "They will take confidence from the way they had played before Fabricio Coloccini's red card at the Stadium of Light, as they look for the boost of back-to-back victories at St James' Park.

    "Stoke will have a point of their own to prove after their uncharacteristic defeat by Watford.

    "They have been strong away from the Potteries and will be even stronger with Ryan Shawcross's presence and leadership available again. Mark Hughes won't accept a repeat of last weekend."

  45. Team news

    Newcatle v Stoke (15:00 GMT)
