  1. It was by no means a game that will live long in the memory, but this was a tremendous defensive display from Newcastle that kept an impressive clean sheet against a menacing attacking force. Hopefully the second leg will be an improvement at St James' Park, but for now the Magpies can savour this result as they look to ensure their Premier League survival.

  2. FT: Anzhi 0 Newcastle 0.

  3. 90+2

    Half chance for Taylor, as the ball falls to the Newcastle substitute in space before he wildly fires over the bar. That's probably the last chance of the game and what a result this will be for the Magpies.

  4. 90+1

    Traore battles with Simpson on the byline, but the decision is a free-kick to Newcastle with the Anzhi man perplexed at the decision of the referee.

  5. 90

    Three minutes of added time to be played.

  6. 89

    Logashov comes on with minutes to go as Yeschenko makes way.

  7. 88

    Yeschenko pulls up with cramp it appears, and is tended to by medics as play temporarily comes to a halt.

  8. 87

    Another wonderful chance for Anzhi, as Traore tidily feeds in Eto'o, who twists and turns to create a yard to shoot but can only drive a tame shot into the arms of Elliot.

  9. 86

    Traore and Eto'o exchange passes, but Yanga-Mbiwa and Haidara combine to snuff out the danger as Anzhi's forwards remain frustrated.

  10. 84

    Tiote arrives on the field as Marveaux makes way.

  11. 83

    Zhirkov shows a turn of pace to advance past Simpson, but sterdy marking from the right-back sees the winger fall on the edge of the box, but a Newcastle goal-kick is the outcome.

  12. 81

    Ameobi tangles with Ewerton, and a free-kick is given against the Newcastle striker, who have increased their attacking urgency in the last few minutes.

  13. 79

    Another chance for Newcastle, as Marveaux ploughs forward to meet Obertan's knock-down, drawing a corner from his deflected shot.

  14. 78

    Eto'o's venomous effort packs a punch, but fortunately for Elliot he watches it narrowly sail away from his top left corner.

  15. 77

    As Traore lines up to shoot, Cabaye sticks a boot out and catches his opponent, with Anzhi awarded a free-kick a dangerous 25 yards from goal.

  16. 76

    Anita is taken off with Taylor coming on to further bolster Newcastle's defence.

  17. 75

    Shatov is played in by Jucilei, but once again Newcastle's sterling defence are all over the winger, with Obertain the man who'd tracked back to throw his body in the way.

  18. 73

    Anita ambitiously takes aim from 35 yards, but credit to him, his effort is justified as he ends up inches away from finding the top corner.

  19. 72

    A short Anzhi corner threatens to catch Newcastle off guard, but Zhirkov's interaction with Shatov is delayed, and in the end Newcastle's defence swarms in.

  20. 71

    Sissoko carries the ball forward, playing back to Cabaye, who launches it forward up to Marvauex where Ewerton steps in to take control.
