  1. FULL TIME. Aston Villa 1 Newcastle 2.

  2. 90+4

    Benteke chests down Lowton's ball once more, but Taylor gets to the second ball and boots it away, with the result surely in the bag now.

  3. 90+3

    A throw-in is taken far too hastily by Weimann and a goal kick is the result as Newcastle look to survive one more likely attack to obtain victory.

  4. 90+1

    Lowton's delivery up to Benteke sees the ball bounce in front of the striker, before Cabaye helps out to hack away once more as Newcastle continue to hang on.

  5. 90

    Vlaar's stinging effort cannons off a body in the melee of the Newcastle penalty box, as Villa pile everything at Newcastle in pursuit of an equaliser, as five minutes time is added on.

  6. 89

    Newcastle's fans are finding their voice again as their side close on victory, and as N'Zogbia crosses straight into Krul, another minute wastes away for the Magpies.

  7. 88

    Yellow card for Vlaar who collides with Ameobi in a crunching tackle.

  8. 87

    Guzan's free-kick incredibly lands in Newcastle's six-yard box, and if Benteke sticks any part of his body in the way he scores. He doesn't though, and another chance goes begging for Villa.

  9. 86

    Baker can't keep the ball in play down the left, but as Anita breaks away, the offside flag saves the blushes of the left-back who was well and truly left caught out of position.

  10. 85

    Lowton finds the run of Weimann, but the striker again shows the damage of that previous injury, lacking the pace to reach the ball as it rolls out for a goal-kick.

  11. 84

    Lowton is finding space all down the right side to deliver now, but his latest cross is slightly too far ahead for Benteke as Coloccini comes across to steer the ball away.

  12. 83

    Baker gets a powerful head to the ball, but Gutierrez makes a magnificent block before Taylor somehow clears to safety. Brilliant chance for the hosts.

  13. 82

    Lowton whips another ball in after sterling work from Agbonlahor, and again Santon gets in the way to concede a corner.

  14. 81

    Gutierrez incredibly attempts an overhead kick from 30 yards, which naturally lands in the arms of Guzan. Newcastle look much stronger now and they seem to have calmed the Villa storm of the second half.

  15. 80

    Sissoko ends up superb debut as he is replaced by Yanga-Mbiwa.

  16. 79

    Cisse is inches away from picking out Anita with a remarkable pass, but Lowton collects the ball, looking for Weimann, who is beaten for pace by Coloccini.

  17. 78

    Benteke wins the header against Sissoko but the whistle blows as the referee deems he won the ball unfairly.

  18. 77

    Lowton is penalised, and then booked, for a hard tackle on Santon that sees the Newcastle full-back take a crunching boot to his ankle.

  19. 76

    Anita takes aim, but a deflection off Vlaar takes the sting out of his shot and makes for a comfortable save for Guzan.

  20. 75

    Gouffran heads off with Anita replacing him in a Newcastle change.
