GOAL FOR NEWCASTLE!! Papiss Cisse with the winner for the Magpies! A cross from the left was cleared as far as Cabaye, he unleashes a shot from 25 yards but Cisse expertly controls his shot and then buries his volley past Schwarzer. Superb from Cisse.
90' J. Riise gets yellow.
5 minutes of stoppage time at St. James' Park.
88' Slow build up play results in a good chance for Papiss Cisse and Newcastle. After retaining the ball, Sissoko finds Anita in space down the right, his cross is met well by Cisse but his header is well saved by Schwarzer. It doesn't look as though the Magpies will break the Fulham defence today.
85' Claims for a penalty from Shola Ameobi as he goes down as he shoots towards goal under a challenge from Hangeland, Kevein Friend isn't interested though.
83' Berbatov is furious as Jon Arne Riise opts to shoot from a extremely narrow angle instead of squaring the ball to the Bulgarian.
81' H. Rodallega enters the game and replaces S. Manolev.
A. Campbell enters the game and replaces D. Simpson.
An attacking substitution by both sides as Hugo Rodallega replaces Stanislav Manolev for Fulham and Adam Campbell replaces Danny Simpson for Newcastle.
78' A good chance for Ameobi as Simpson crosses from the right but the Newcastle striker can't direct his header on target.
76' There is a sense of urgency from the Newcastle players when they regain the ball, however Fulham are making it frustrating for them by putting everyone behind the ball defending.
