S Cook (90+2)
Newcastle vs B'mouth
3:00pm Saturday 4th November
St James' Park, Newcastle
NEWCASTLE 0-1 BOURNEMOUTH
FT: That's that! Some controversy at the end as Steve Cook drags down Gayle as he looks to run through on goal, but nothing is given! It looked a blatant drag back...
A thoroughly entertaining game at St James' Park with plenty of chances, and the match deserved a winner. Huge, huge three points for Bournemouth.
GOAL! NEWCASTLE 0-1 BOURNEMOUTH (Cook 90+2)
Unbelievable! Heartbreak for Newcastle, but arguably a deserved goal for Bournemouth!
It's simple... an inswinging corner from Surman it met by Steve Cook, who bullets a header past Elliot in the Newcastle goal!
St James' Park empties, very quickly...
NEWCASTLE 0-0 BOURNEMOUTH
90+2: SAVE! Lovely turn and shot from Defoe at an angle in the area, and Elliot has to beat it away!
90+1: Three minutes added on...
89: SO CLOSE! How close are Bournemouth here to three points?! Pugh gets into the area in space, twists and turns and gets a shot off on goal...
It bounces through Elliot's legs, heads goalwards and is then deflected off the foot of Clark, and then back off the post! Unbelievable!
Pugh had his hands in the air thinking he'd scored!
88: Defoe wins Bournemouth a corner with some great strength in the final third...
86: Rafa may be complaining about time wasting, but Bournemouth could easily win this. They pepper the Newcastle box with a few crosses, all dealt with, before Arter strikes well wide from distance.
84: Shelvey sarcastically applauds the referee after giving away a foul, and is booked for it. He's looked riled up in the last 20 minutes, and has to calm down now.
82: Sub for Newcastle. Atsu is replaced by Murphy for the final 10 minutes or so.
80: Free-kick to Bournemouth around 40 yards out. Daniels curls it, but it's headed away well by Ritchie at the far post.
78: Francis goes in the book for a blatant tug on Atsu running down the left wing. I think that's what they call a 'professional' foul..
77: Boos ring around St James' Park as former Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe replaces Ibe.
He'll be even more unpopular if he can grab the winner...
76: Bournemouth forward in numbers again. King feeds Ibe, who chooses to go for goal from 20 yards, but Manquillo puts in a superb block and looks winded!
74: Rafa Benitez gives fourth official Martin Atkinson an earful about Bournemouth's time-wasting. Just over 15 minutes remaining... who can nick a winner?
72: Pugh receives it on the left of the box, looks to curl it into the far corner, opening his body up, but it goes a few yards wide.
70: Change for Newcastle. Perez comes on for Joselu, who hasn't had the greatest of games.
68: Corner to Newcastle, Ritchie takes, but he pulls it to the back of the box and Bournemouth clear. Another corner is then cleared.
Sky Bet still have a number of PRICE BOOSTS on offer including Dwight Gayle to score the first goal which is now 7/1 from 13/2, while Matt Ritchie to score from outside the area is 10/1 from 9/1. Click here for latest match odds!
66: Lejeune has tried to be clever, falling over as he runs the ball out of play for a corner. No foul given, and he's been booked for locking heads with King, who has accused him of diving.
Toon fans are furious!
64: SAVE! King lofts it to the back post for Pugh, who is unmarked and has Wilson square in the box.
He looks to head it across, but it ends up going goalwards, and Elliot does well to dive to his left, save, and catch it.
62: Neither side has really had sustained possession in this game. It's been to and fro in midfield, and a lot of action has been in the final thirds.
59: Could St James' Park grow frustrated as the half goes on? With all those chances in the first half, they'll be disappointed not to be ahead, but Bournemouth have had their opportunities too.
57: Lascelles, who was struggling from a first-half injury, is now being substituted. Ciaran Clark comes on.
55: Very high line from Bournemouth, and Shelvey's touch over the defence is into Gayle's path... but he miscontrols it and Begovic collects!
53: HUGE CHANCE! Newcastle are on the front foot, but they've left so much space at the back.
King chests it down and feeds Wilson through on goal with ease... Elliot rushes out, narrows the angle, and Wilson goes on his left foot and hits it into the side-netting!
Big, big chance, and he should have scored!
51: Newcastle have started the brighter. Gayle and Shelvey play a nice one-two on the byline, but the striker can't get on the end of it as it just runs out of play.
49: SAVE! Corner to Newcastle, unnecessarily given away by Cook. Good ball in to the far post for Joselu, but his header into the ground is tipped over by Begovic!
47: Deep free-kick piled into the box by Shelvey... Begovic punches, Atsu looks to shoot, but it goes well wide of goal.
46: Back underway here. Bournemouth were out very early...
Both teams to score is 5/2 with Sky Bet and not to 2/7 .A 0-0 draw is 3/1 and 1-1 7/1. Newcastle to win 1-0 is 7/2, 2-0 8/1 and 2-1 14/1, while a 1-0 win for the Cherries is 7/1. Click here for latest match odds!
HT: Goalless, but a really good half of football. Elliot and Begovic have both made two fantastic saves apiece, and the scoreline is largely down to them.
Newcastle have looked dangerous, shooting on sight, but Bournemouth have piled men forward too. Intriguing second half in store.
45: Newcastle are furious as Gayle robs Arter high up the pitch and look to attack, but referee Tierney calls for a foul.
43: Manquillo... what on earth was that? He has a go as the ball moves across his body 20 yards out, but it flies well, well, well wide. Almost out for a throw!
41: Hayden gets a deep ball in the box, Joselu stands on the ball and can't quite get it out of his feet, allowing Ake to clear the danger.
39: SAVE! Another chance for the visitors! King wrestles with Lejeune on the left of the box and is able to get a shot off from an acute angle, but Elliot does really well to save it and keep it under control.
37: SAVE! Chance for Bournemouth now! Cook does really well to slide in and cross for Wilson, who loops a header which is heading in...
... but Elliot tips it over the bar brilliantly!
36: More Newcastle pressing. Cook takes a chance at the back and Gayle wins it. He lays it off to Hayden, but he curls it high and wide of Begovic's goal.
34: A lot of space in the Bournemouth box. Hayden lifts it up for Gayle, and with his back to goal, but his turn and shot is blocked well by Ake.
32: And here's that counter... King drives forward with the ball, has Wilson running off him to his right, but he goes for goal and drags it wide! Wilson isn't happy.
30: Newcastle really pressing all over the pitch here. They deserve to be ahead, but Bournemouth are looking to get men forward on the counter.
28: Surman is robbed of possession by Hayden; it falls to Joselu on his left foot 20 yards out, but he flashes it wide. Should have done better.
26: SHOT! Another Newcastle attack ends in a decent effort. Ritchie's outstanding ball out wide to Atsu, is picked up well by the midfielder... he cuts onto his right, goes for the top corner, but it's acrobatically chested wide by the defender Cook!
24: Bournemouth break at speed and have 4 v 4... Ibe is running down the left, Wilson is on the ball on the right, but his deft diagonal ball goes past Lascelles AND Ibe and falls out wide. Missed opportunity...
22: Booking for Surman, who slides in dangerously on Joselu on halfway. No complaints there.

20: Newcastle shooting from anywhere here. It falls kindly to Shelvey 35 yards out, but he blazes it over this time.
18: OFF THE POST! What a game so far!
Ritchie curls one towards the top corner from the edge of the box brilliantly, it bounces off the post and comes out to Gayle to stick in the net...
OFFSIDE! ... but he's offside from the initial shot! Replays show it was probably level. Huge call!
16: Really bright start to this game, and Begovic has been a busy man. Newcastle could be 3-0 up, and let's hope the pace doesn't slow down in this one.
14: SAVE! Another superb save from Begovic, and another fine effort! Atsu chests an aerial ball down, hits it on the half-volley from 25 yards, and Begovic dives to his left to tip it away brilliantly!
