Great chance for Norwich to win it as Holt rises highest to meet Bennett's cross and his header back across goal is just missed at the far post by Pilkington.
Newcastle win a free-kick wide on the left as Bennett trips up Santon. Chance to get a good ball into the box.
Decent cross in from Hoolahan to Martin who sees his header deflect off before being cleared to safety.
Norwich win corner, after good work from Pilkington and Williamson turns it behind. Pilkington takes, but Krul takes it easily.
Nice run from Marveaux and he fires in a rising shot which fails to trouble Bunn and goes over the crossbar.
Sight of goal for Pilkington as the ball drops to him on the edge of the box, but his effort is well over the top.
Good chance for Norwich as Hoolahan tries to pick out Johnson inside the box, but Obertan clears the danger for a corner. The corner comes to nothing and is cleared.
RESTART: Norwich get the second half underway and hopefully it is a better game than the first half offering.
Who can break the deadlock? Papiss Cisse in the 7/1 joint favourite along with Simeon Jackson while set-piece specialist Robert Snodgrass is 8/1. Norwich are the 6/4 favourites to claim the victory with Newcastle 11/4 while the draw is considered most likely now at 5/4.
HALF-TIME: The referee brings the first half to a close and in all honesty it has been a dull encounter so far.
Poor clearance from Bassong gifts the ball to Obertan inside the box and he fires in a shot which is well wide of the target.
Anita's corner sums this game up as he seems to catch the turf and the ball goes straight out of play.
Again the final ball lets Norwich down as Snodgrass makes a good run into the box, but his attempted pass to Hoolahan is poor and the chance goes abegging.
Norwich win another corner as Coloccini keeps out Snodgrass. Again the corner is poor and Santon clears the ball at the front post.
Good goalkeeping from Krul as he rushes from his line to collect the ball ahead of Jackson after Hoolahan tried to play in the striker.
Good ball from Marveaux finds Cisse, but his shot lacks the power to trouble Bunn. Decent move from Newcastle.
Wasted chance for Norwich as they catch Newcastle on the break and Jackson pulls the ball back for Hoolahan, but Perch gets back just in time to clear the danger for a corner.
Gutierrez is adjudged to have handled the ball inside the box just as he got ready to fire in a shot.
Jackson works a one-two with Hoolahan, but off balance the striker scoops his effort well over the top.
Good effort on the turn from Obertan, but Bunn produces a smart reaction save to keep out his effort.
Gutierrez tries a curler from wide on the left, but he gets his effort horribly wrong and it sails well wide of the target.
Pilkington's cross from the right is inviting, but no one can get on the end of it and Krul collects for Newcastle.
Good play by Hoolahan down the left, but his cross is cleared by Santon. Norwich starting to pen Newcastle back in their own half now.
Good run from Gutierrez down the left and his cross towards Cisse is just overhit and the ball runs away to safety.
Bit of pressure from Norwich as Pilkington beats Debuchy down the right, but his cross is cleared by Williamson.
Ten minutes gone and there has been very little goalmouth action with both sides just sparring with each other in the early stages.
Very little sign of Debuchy getting forward at the minute with both side's struggling to create too much in the final third.
Snodgrass's free-kick delivery is poor and is easily cleared by Gutierrez. Wasted opportunity for Norwich.
Early chance for Newcastle as Obertan gets in down the left, but Bunn picks up his cross ahead of Cisse. Poor defending from Norwich allowed Obertan in.
Newcastle fan James Wallbridge is going for a 4-2 win to Alan Pardew's men with Papiss Cisse getting a hat-trick. What are your predictions?
Do you think Newcastle will keep hold of Fabricio Coloccini during this month's transfer window? Let me know your thoughts.
Today's referee is Anthony Taylor and hopefully we will not be talking too much about him during the game.
I look forward to hearing from you and I will endeavour to post as many of your thoughts, opinions and reaction as I can.

Having failed to win away from home in the league all season, Newcastle are a big price at 12/5 to win at Carrow Road, with the hosts 11/10 favourites. Despite scoring three times in their last home game, Norwich average just over one goal per game at home, so it's difficult to foresee too many goals in this one - Sky Bet are expecting under 2.5 goals (Evens).
Fabricio Coloccini starts for Newcastle despite widespread speculation over his future, while Mathieu Debuchy makes his debut for his new club.
Newcastle XI: Krul; Debuchy, Williamson, Coloccini, Santon; Perch, Anita; Obertan, Marveaux, Gutierrez; Cisse.
Norwich XI: Bunn, Martin,, Bassong, Turner, Garrido; Pilkington, Johnson, Tettey, Snodgrass, Hoolahan; Jackson
