Swansea get the second half started and Newcastle have made a change at the break, with Shola Ameobi coming on in place of Shane Ferguson. Both sides will still fancy their chances of walking away with all three points after a closely-fought first period.
Demba Ba drives a header over the crossbar moments before the whistle goes for half-time. It remains goalless but the game has had its moments, with both keepers being forced into action.

Itay Shechter is booked for a foul on Davide Santon. He did not make much contact with the Newcastle man but it looked a wild challenge on the stretch after he had lost control of the ball.
Ben writes: 'It's now or never for Newcastle as we just haven't delivered this season so we need the big players to bring home the 3 points for the Toon. But you look at our bench and you do worry whether that will happen. Sadly going for 1-1.'
Michael has got in touch, saying: 'Today's match could kick-start our season hopefully, the first goal will be important for both teams so i'll go 3-1 Magpies!'
Swansea head to St James' Park having failed to score in five of their last six visits and Newcastle to win to nil this afternoon is a 5/2 shot, while a 2-0 scoreline for the hosts is 17/2. The Magpies are 10/11 in the match result market, with Swansea 3/1 and the draw available at 12/5. Demba Ba (9/2) and Papiss Cisse (5/1) head the first goalscorer betting, and it's 5/1 for them both to score. Swansea pair Michu and Danny Graham are both 7/1 to score first.
