General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +6 Full-time at St James' Park and Newcastle have won a crucial game here and more importantly grab a precious three points thanks to Shola Ameobi's 81st minute strike. The game wasn't a classic but Alan Pardew and his team won't mind as they snap their two game losing streak. Harry Redknapp's side were below par for most of the game and will be disappointed with their effort on Tyneside, after picking up their first win of the season last week it's one step backwards and the road to safety just got a lot harder.
90' +5 Maybe not as the R's win a free kick 25 yards from goal. Can they grab a late equaliser?
SAVED!!! Krul makes a comfortable save from Taarabt's free kick which lacked the power needed to beat the Dutchman and that should be that.
90' +4 Shola Ameobi gets yellow.
Taarabt loses possession on the edge of the area as he looked the pull the trigger. Is that it from QPR?
90' +2 CHANCE!!! Ameobi gets the ball on the edge of the area and turns and powers an effort at goal which Green saves comfortably. Can QPR get the one chance at goal they need.
90' +1 The Magpies win a free kick in the final third of the pitch and are just looking to kill the clock deep in QPR territory.
90' Groans around St James' Park as there are to be five minutes of added time.
89' J. Perch gets yellow.
Newcastle are edging towards a vital three points here as Taarabt is flagged offside as he looks to chase down a long ball played upfield.
87' It's Marveaux who strikes the ball and it goes just wide of the post but Rob Green may just have got there just in time to cover his post. Very good effort from the Frenchman.
86' C. Hill gets yellow.
85' Ba is brought down twice in quick succession as Hill brings him down on the edge of the box. Will Ba try his luck again?
