FULL-TIME

Newcastle 1-3 Bournemouth

Jeers, disillusionment and cries of "you're getting sacked in the morning".

Stay with BBC Football for the post-match reaction - it will be interesting.

GOAL - Newcastle 1-3 Bournemouth

Charlie Daniels

It was coming. Bournemouth are unlikely to face easier opposition that the Newcastle team they faced today.

Charlie Daniels skipped past two half-hearted challenges on the left before cutting in and firing a low angled shot past Rob Elliot.

Take nothing away from Daniels - that was a lovely solo goal.

CLOSE!

Newcastle 1-2 Bournemouth

Gini Wijnaldum's shot - which was on target - is deflected a foot wide by Steve Cook.

This is tense.

GREAT SAVE!

Newcastle 1-2 Bournemouth

Rob Elliot pulls off a great save to prevent Marc Pugh from bursting the net. Moments later Lewis Grabban misses the Newcastle far post by a foot.

Bournemouth should have scored a third.

GOAL - Newcastle 1-2 Bournemouth

Ayoze Perez

A lifeline?

Jonjo Shelvey delivers a gorgeous ball into the path of Ayoze Perez who slots his effort past the reach of Artur Boruc.

Nine or so minutes remaining.

Is this the end for McClaren?

Matt Blazey: McLaren has to go, wally with a brolly in 2007, wally without a plan in 2016.

Andy: I've bit my tongue long enough, Steve McClaren has to go #clueless

Emma Gregory: No clue. No hope. No faith. Surely McClaren HAS to go now?!!!

Newcastle 0-2 Bournemouth

Bournemouth back on the attack. They have a free-kick from 30 yards out on the right - this time the beleaguered Magpies clear.

YELLOW CARD

Newcastle 0-2 Bournemouth

Dan Gosling goes into the book for a foul on Gini Wijnaldum.

Dan Bell: McClaren has been a total disaster and has to be sacked tonight

Ian Mcgennis: McClaren has spent over £75mil : 27 goals scored, 52 conceded. Previous managers: Carver, Pardew, Kinnear. Clueless again

GOAL - Newcastle 0-2 Bournemouth

Joshua King

They thought it was all over, it is now!

Sucker-punch. Matt Ritchie plays in a delightful ball to Joshua King who smashes the ball high past Rob Elliot. A brilliant finish. Does it bring to a finish Steve McClaren's reign at St James'?

SUBSTITUTIONS

Newcastle 0-1 Bournemouth

Some jeers from the home crowd as Moussa Sissoko is replaced by Rolando Aarons - the home crowd seemed confused by the decision.

Newcastle 0-1 Bournemouth

Bournemouth's Joshua King delivers a square ball across the six-yard area which Benik Afobe only just fails to get to.

The Magpies attack at the other end, but the threat is quelled.

Substitution coming up.

Newcastle 0-1 Bournemouth

Moussa Sissoko then has a pop from 25 yards - but his shot is straight down the throat of Artur Boruc.

Will the Magpies be rewarded for this push or will they be caught on the break?

We have about 24 minutes remaining.

GREAT SAVE!

Newcastle 0-1 Bournemouth

Bournemouth's Artur Boruc - 5-a-side style- blocks Daryl Janmaat's fierce angled drive. Great reactions from the Pole, who has had very little to do in the match.

CLOSE!

Newcastle 0-1 Bournemouth

Finally - something for the black and white fans to cheer about.

Sub Aleksandar Mitrovic tries his luck from 20 yards, but his shot whistles past Artur Boruc's left-hand upright.

SUBSTITUTION

Newcastle 0-1 Bournemouth

Cherries midfielder Max Gradel - very influential in the match - comes off and is replaced by Marc Pugh.

Newcastle 0-1 Bournemouth

Newcastle trying to make something of their possession, but Jonjo Shelvey's quarterback pass downfield fails to find Gini Wijnaldum.

The home fans are frustrated. Very.

YELLOW CARD

Newcastle 0-1 Bournemouth

Newcastle forward Ayoze Perez goes into the book for pulling back Adam Smith - a soft yellow really.

David Ljunggren: this is a stroll in the (St James's) Park for Bournemouth. Easiest three points they'll get all season

Newcastle 0-1 Bournemouth

Newcastle defender Jamaal Lascelles is hobbling at the moment. Another worry for coach Steve McClaren.

Newcastle 0-1 Bournemouth

Newcastle are all over the shop.

Two on two, but Joshua King's ball to Benik Afobe sends the forward far too wide. The move ends with Adam Smith's low drive punched away by Rob Elliot.

It looks like 2-0 to the Cherries soon.

Newcastle 0-1 Bournemouth

There are 52,107 at St James' today. Great loyalty, if only their team...

Back to the action, midfielder Max Gradel's low drive flies a few feet past Rob Elliot's upright.

KICK-OFF

Newcastle 0-1 Bournemouth

The players are back out. Magpies striker Aleksandar Mitrovic is coming on for Emmanuel Riviere - Riviere actually went close on a couple of occasions in the first half.

Paul Stephenson: Why sack McClaren? He'd simply be replaced by somebody who isn't strong enough or competent enough to challenge NUFC hierachy

Beefy: If - or should I say when - Newcastle get beat today then a change becomes inevitable? Currently worse than last year!

HALF-TIME

Newcastle 0-1 Bournemouth

Half-time and boos from the home crowd.

The Magpies have it all to do - does McClaren only have another 45 minutes at St James'?

CLOSE!

Newcastle 0-1 Bourenmouth

Guess who nearly scored a second goal? Steven Taylor.

Emmanuel Riviere's hooked ball finds the defender in the area, but his shot is deflected wide by Simon Francis. Nothing comes from the corner.

A great angled strike by Steven Taylor - but at the wrong end.

Newcastle 0-1 Bournemouth

It's jeers o'clock from the home fans after Daryl Janmaat wastes a delivery into the area.

They started brightly, but Newcastle are a team on the ropes now.

Newcastle 0-1 Bournemouth

Benik Afobe goes down in the area - Jack Colback appeared to make a bit of contact, but the Cherries forward went like down like an extra in Platoon.

Moments later Afobe loses his footing in the six-yard area just as he is about to shoot.

Newcastle 0-1 Bournemouth

1 - Newcastle defender Steven Taylor's own goal was his first in the Premier League since December 2006. Unfortunate.

SUBSTITUTION

Newcastle 0-1 Bournemouth

The Magpies make an early substitution.

Full-back Paul Dummett comes off and on comes Vurnon Anita.

Injury to the young Welshman? Surely not tactical?

GOAL - Newcastle 0-1 Bournemouth

Steven Taylor OG

When your luck's out....

Max Gradel, who has been the Cherries' biggest threat, finds Joshua King out on the left.

He cuts into the area and attempts to deliver a square pass, but instead his ball is deflected into the goal by the outstretched boot of Steven Taylor.

What now McClaren?

Newcastle 0-0 Bournemouth

A lot of well meaning huff and puff from the Magpies, but who can provide the finish?

Meanwhile, the Cherries have control of possession..

Newcastle 0-0 Bournemouth

..the corner comes to nothing and Bournemouth break.

Benik Afobe is one-on-one, but Newcastle's defenders get back and clear to safety.

Supporters are getting their money's worth so far.

CLOSE!

Newcastle 0-0 Bournemouth

Daryl Janmaat does know how to deliver a good ball. Emmanuel Riviere gets on the end of it, but his strike is deflected and goes wide for a corner.

Newcastle then win another corner..

Newcastle 0-0 Bournemouth

Bit of info on today's ref Paul Tierney:

He's only officiated three Premier League games this season and has dished out eight yellow cards in total and no reds.

So there you go.

Newcastle 0-0 Bournemouth

It's calmed down a little bit after that action-packed first 15 minutes. Both teams look good in attack.

Newcastle 0-0 Bournemouth

Newcastle forward Ayoze Perez - in his first start in over a month - fires a shot over the bar from 20 yards. It was one of those that was always going high. 

Newcastle 0-0 Bournemouth

Newcastle back on the attack. This time Andrew Surman is there for the Cherries to clear the danger, with both Moussa Sissoko and Daryl Janmaat driving down the right.

CLOSE and CLOSE AGAIN!

Newcastle 0-0 Bournemouth

He could only watch.

Newcastle keeper Rob Elliot is stuck in the mud as Max Gradel's 10-yard shot takes a deflection off his own player and floats a couple of feet wide of the home goal.

Moments later, Benik Afobe's hooked shot from eight yards clears the keeper's bar. He should have scored!
