Newcastle: Krul, Simpson, Steven Taylor, Coloccini, Ryan Taylor, Ben Arfa, Guthrie, Cabaye, Gutierrez, Ba, Sammy Ameobi. bit of a snore by all accounts although Sunderland did hit the woodwork twice early on in the game… Portsmouth are 1-0 down on Michael Appleton’s managerial debut at Vicarage Road and Cardiff lead at Reading.
4.38pm: Nothing to report from the Stadium of Light… Surely they’ll be made to rue those misses when Mancini wheels out the cavalry in the second half… What’s most surprising is that it’s at the back it all seems to be going wrong.
