    Joselu

    Substitute Joselu scored within four minutes of coming on to earn Newcastle United a draw against bottom side Swansea City.

    The visitors, who were denied a first-half penalty when Mohamed Diame appeared to handle the ball, took the lead through Jordan Ayew's header after Karl Darlow had parried his first effort.

    But Newcastle equalised eight minutes later when Ayoze Perez's deflected shot fell for Joselu and he shot through the legs of Alfie Mawson and into the net.

    Swansea are now four points behind 17th-placed Bournemouth, while Newcastle are now only three points above the relegation zone in 14th.

    The Swans nearly grabbed a dramatic winner in injury time but Wilfried Bony's shot was cleared off the goalline by Newcastle's DeAndre Yedlin.

    All over. A draw.

  3. Post update

    Newcastle United 1-1 Swansea City

    Wilfried Bony has a shot. It is cleared on the goalline by DeAndre Yedlin. So close to a dramatic winner.

  4. Post update

    Newcastle United 1-1 Swansea City

    It was aimed towards Jamaal Lascelles, but Kyle Bartley heads clear for Swansea.

  5. Post update

    Newcastle United 1-1 Swansea City

    Late free-kick to Newcastle.

  6. Post update

    Newcastle United 1-1 Swansea City

    A corner to Newcastle. Matt Ritchie's corner is excellently gathered by Lukasz Fabianski.

  7. Post update

    Newcastle United 1-1 Swansea City

    A late free-kick for Newcastle. Could be dangerous. Matt Ritchie wants it.

    He floats it into the back post, but it comes to nothing.

  8. Post update

    Newcastle United 1-1 Swansea City

    Luciano Narsingh comes on for Nathan Dyer for Swansea. Eight minutes left to win it.

  9. Post update

    Newcastle United 1-1 Swansea City

    This one could go either way. Ciaran Clark flicks the ball over his own bar to concede a corner. Wilfried Bony meets it, but had given away a foul.

  10. Post update

    Newcastle United 1-1 Swansea City

    Mohamed Diame receives a bouncing ball 25 yards out, he goes for the spectacular half-volley, but his strike is well wide.

  11. Post update

    Newcastle United 1-1 Swansea City

    Newcastle push to take the lead. Matt Ritchie's floated cross finds Christian Atsu and he tries to head down into the path of Ayoze Perez, but Lukasz Fabianski is off his line quickly and bravely to get a hand to the ball and deny Perez.

  12. SUBSTITUTION

    Newcastle United 1-1 Swansea City

    A change, and Wilfried Bony, who had appeared to be coming on just before Swansea took the lead, is finally making an appearance. Oliver McBurnie, who has worked hard, but largely been ineffective, is the man replaced.

  13. Swansea have to defend better

    Newcastle 1-1 Swansea

    Kevin Kilbane

    Former Republic of Ireland winger on Final Score

    I think Joselu is just onside there - Swansea were just a bit passive there - they've got to get themselves in front and they've got to defend better. But saying that - it's a great finish from Joselu - he's squeezed it through the defender's legs from a tight angle.

  14. GOAL - Newcastle 1-1 Swansea

    Joselu (Newcastle)

    And we are level. Ayoze Perez chases on to a ball over the top, his shot is deflected and falls into the path of Joselu, who had only just come on as a substitute. He shoots low, through the legs of Alfie Mawson and into the net. Now we have a game on.

    Joselu
  15. SUBSTITUTIONS

    Newcastle United 0-1 Swansea City

    Some changes. Dwight Gayle is off and Joselu on for Newcastle.

    Mike van der Hoorn, who created the goal with a fine cross from the right wing, appears to have injured himself doing so and he is now replaced, with Connor Roberts making his league debut.

  16. GOAL - Newcastle 0-1 Swansea

    Jordan Ayew

    A lovely cross from the right wing by Mike van der Hoorn is met by Jordan Ayew and his header produces a stunning one-handed save by Karl Darlow.

    But the Newcastle goalkeeper needs a bit of luck, but he doesn't get it and Ayew heads in the rebound. Bottom of the table Swansea are winning.

    Newcastle United 0-0 Swansea City

    David Ljunggren: Newcastle and Swansea will be playing this fixture again in the Championship next year I think. Terrible lack of quality throughout from both sides.

  18. Post update

    Newcastle United 0-0 Swansea City

    Dwight Gayle looks to be in a bit of injury bother. He is limping. Not exactly what Newcastle, struggling for goals, need.

  19. Post update

    Newcastle United 0-0 Swansea City

    I mentioned poor quality. We have just had a foul throw. In the Premier League.
