NEWCASTLE 1-1 SWANSEA
And that's full-time! A brilliant second half comes to a close, and the spoils are ultimately shared at St James' Park. The draw leaves Swansea four points from safety, while Newcastle sit 14th - three points above the drop-zone.
90+3: OFF THE LINE! Swansea go on the break and Darlow comes rushing out to deny Narsingh. The ball then falls kindly for Bony, but his low effort is cleared away off the goal-line by Yedlin.
90+2: Newcastle crowd urging their side on. Atsu is fouled out wide by Narsingh and they will look to cross one in...
90+1: Swansea under the cosh, but they deal with a couple of crosses... Three minutes to go. Tick, tock.
90: It's into the danger zone but Fabianski catches it under pressure.
Ayew then goes in the book for the Swans. Not long to go - FOUR minutes of stoppage time in fact.
89: Corner to Newcastle after Mawson heads it out... All eyes on Ritchie to send in the perfect ball...
88: Ritchie opts to float in a cross but no one is there to meet it at the back post, meaning the ball just bounces out for a goal-kick. Groans from the home fans.
87: Carroll fouls Ritchie and Newcastle have a free-kick 25 yards out. You imagine Ritchie will fancy it from this angle...
85: And now it's time for Swansea's final sub. Dyer off, Luciano Narsingh on.
83: Yellow for Mawson after the defender hoofs the ball away needlessly. Ritchie looks to send the resulting free-kick into the Swansea box but Bartley is there to head away.
82: Second sub for Newcastle, and it's Mikel Merino who comes on for Shelvey, who shakes his head as he trots off.
81: Bony meets the corner but Swansea are penalised for a push in the box.
NEWCASTLE 1-1 SWANSEA
80: Ki floats a free-kick into the Newcastle box, it's met by Bartley at the back-post and Clark dangerously improvises to flick the ball over the bar...
78: AIR KICK! Ironic cheers from the home fans as Bony completely misses his kick when looking to get an attempt away inside the Newcastle box. Besides that, the Swans have looked a tad more dangerous with Bony in the fold.
75: Momentum is still with Newcastle, but Mawson does well to scramble a cross away before Diame sends a speculative effort over the bar.
73: CLOSE! Ritchie's cross is met by Atsu - his header is deflected and looks to fall kindly for Perez, but Fabianski rushes out to put him off and helps Swansea win a goal-kick.
70: St James' Park is rocking again, and the hosts must now channel that belief in their bid to take the lead for the first time in the match.
Swansea's response is to bring on Bony for McBurnie - good call.
GOAL! NEWCASTLE 1-1 SWANSEA (Joselu, 68)
Super sub, Joselu!
Perez's shot from a narrow angle is deflected and bounces along the six-yard line. Joselu then takes a couple of touches before rolling in an effort into the far corner.
Great response from the hosts, and suddenly the home fans believe again. The highs and lows of Premier League football, eh.
NEWCASTLE 0-1 SWANSEA
66: Tension's in the air. And it's not a fun watch for Newcastle fans, who know their side should have taken the lead before Ayew broke the deadlock.
64: And there is the change. Gayle comes off to be replaced by Joselu.
Van der Hoorn also hobbles off, moments after setting up Ayew, and Connor Roberts takes his place in what is his Premier League debut.
63: Before that goal I was just writing how Bony was ready to come on for Swansea, but now it appears Joselu is preparing to come on for the hosts... The home fans are rocked, and there's a very twitchy atmosphere around the ground.
GOAL! NEWCASTLE 0-1 SWANSEA (Ayew, 60)
Van der Hoorn's cross is met by Ayew, and his header is saved superbly by Darlow, but the rebound falls kindly for Ayew to head in and put the visitors in front!
The Swans had looked to bring on Bony, but they've changed their minds for now!
NEWCASTLE 0-0 SWANSEA
58: As we approach the hour-mark, it's surely time for a change. Attacking options for the hosts include Jacob Murphy and Joselu, while Wilfried Bony is on the bench for the Swans.
NEWCASTLE 0-0 SWANSEA
56: Have to say. Not much to report so far this half. Yedlin strays offside just as Newcastle look to be through on goal, but that's about it. Chances, please.
THIS WAY, THAT WAY
52: An awkward ball in for Newcastle to deal with and Clark's clearance ricochets off Lascelles and out for a Swansea corner... Ki's whipped ball in is glanced across the six-yard box but no man in red is there to meet it.
50: WIDE! Another chance goes begging for Gayle. Clucas gives the ball away to Perez, who plays it forward for Gayle, but the Newcastle striker can only steer his effort a good yard or so wide of the far post.
48: Carroll is hobbling around after being on the end of a late Ritchie challenge which went unpunished, looks like he should be able to jog it off, though.
47: One goal was enough when these two met back in September. Lascelles was the man to steer Newcastle to a 1-0 win at the Liberty. Same again here? It's sure looking like one will suffice!
SECOND-HALF! And we are back under way at St James' Park! No goals yet, as the 0-0 bit above indicates, but plenty of chances so far.
Carlos Carvalhal had come out about two minutes before his team did - a late, inspirational team-talk from one of the players perhaps.

Swansea earn a late corner in stoppage time of stoppage time... but Ki's ball is header over by Bartley and there is the half-time whistle.
Newcastle have had the better chances, though they were beneficiaries of a penalty call which did not go Swansea's way after Diame appeared to block Van der Hoorn's attempt with his elbow.
45+1: Ki's cross is cleared away by Perez and that should be just about that for the half.
45: Corner for Swansea just as one minute of stoppage time is signalled.
43: Vital interception from Mawson as Shelvey's ball almost appears to be inch-perfect for Ritchie.
41: But now that I've seen another replay, I reckon he's a lucky boy... Almost after the ball struck his elbow his arm continued to move away from his body, making it look as though he meant it.
But despite that call not going their way, Swansea have been second best on the chances front, and are lucky to still be at 0-0.
39: Based on the replay it's difficult to say whether Diame's arm was in an unnatural position. First impression is that it would have been harsh to penalise the midfielder. An interesting one if VAR were to have its say.
38: NO PENALTY! Bartley meets the corner and heads it back across goal, where Van der Hoorn gets a shot away. It appears to hit Diame's elbow, but no penalty says referee Graham Scott, despite the strong protests.
OFFSIDE! Down the other end, Perez heads in for Newcastle...but he is rightly flagged for offside. Close call, mind.
35: BLOCKED! Best period of play from Swansea, and Ayew is the conductor as the visitors bring it forward. It ends up falling kindly for Ki on the edge of the area, but his effort is blocked before the ball goes out for their first corner.
33: OVER! Shelvey goes for power, but it's a poor attempt and flies harmlessly over Fabianski's goal.
32: Ki gives the ball away to Gayle, who finds Atsu. He then tries to dance his way through the Swansea defence but ends up getting fouled JUST outside the area. It's 18 yards, and a couple millimetres, away from goal...
31: Swansea yet to register a shot on target. Struggling for goals at the moment, and they're simply unable to get near Newcastle's goal at the moment. Real lack of quality in the final third.
29: A moment to forget for Van der Hoorn as his attempted cross goes out for a goal-kick when he inadvertently touches it with his left foot before swinging and ultimately missing with his right. We've all been there...
27: GOOD SAVE! Perez latches onto Ritchie's ball over the top and his first touch perfectly sets him up for the shot, but it's too close to Fabianski, who makes a decent reaction save before Perez's follow-up attempt from a narrow angle goes out for a corner, which comes to nothing.
Plenty of the game left for Swansea captain Bartley to survive on a yellow card...
23: JUST OVER! Atsu brilliantly chests the ball down before taking on Van der Hoorn and sending in a low cross. It finds Dummett of all people, who knows he must swing at it first time, but he cannot quite keep his effort down.
The stats will tell you Swansea have had 60% possession, but it's Newcastle who have had the greater chances.
20: Free-kick for Swansea and Carroll will look to send one into the box, but Dummett is there to head away the danger.
18: SAVE! Swansea once more lose possession too easily and Newcastle go on the break. Gayle picks out Perez, but instead of playing a return ball, he opts to shoot from a narrow angle and it's a simple stop for Fabianski.
