90+5' - GOAL! West Ham United 1-3 Newcastle United
Yohan Cabaye bends it over the wall and the ball cannons in off the post to the delight of 3,000 travelling Geordies! Game over.
90+4' - Free-kick in a great position for Newcastle after Carroll brings down Ben Arfa. Cabaye is over the ball.
90+3' - Long ball by Adrian and it eventually falls for Joe Cole to pull the trigger. The flag is up for offside though and Krul clears downfield.
90' - Five minutes added.
89' - West Ham are pumping long balls forward at every opportunity now but Newcastle are standing firm.
86' - It's fairly lengthy treatment for both players so we'll see at least a few extra minutes added on shortly. Sissoko is first back to his feet, closely followed by Rat, before the two sportingly shake hands.
83' - Hatem Ben Arfa gets a sight of goal after initially losing possession but he drags it wide of the right post. Collision off the ball seconds later and Moussa Sissoko and Razvan Rat will both require treatment.
80' - Corner to West Ham after Dummett halts Stewart Downing on the right. Cleared by Newcastle but Gouffran is forced to run the ball out.
76' - Big miss by Andy Carroll, who sweeps Stewart Downing's cross well over with Tim Krul nowhere close. Big chance.
73' - Substitution for West Ham United, who bring Joe Cole on for Matt Jarvis.
68' - Shola Ameobi tries his luck this time. It's struck well but it's down the middle of the goal and Adrian stoops to gather.
67' - Yohan Cabaye with a shot on goal but it deflects high and loops down into the hands of Adrian.
64' - Carroll gets a first touch to flick on a long ball to Carlton Cole. He tees up Stewart Downing on the right who crosses but Newcastle can see the ball clear. Yanga-Mbiwa takes a knock in the process and receives treatment.
62' - Substitution for West Ham United. Andy Carroll replaces Mohamed Diame.
56' - Incredible miss by Carlton Cole after great work on the right by Matt Taylor; the striker somehow turning a low cross wide with the goal gaping. West Ham with the bit between their teeth at the moment.
53' - It's a good delivery but James Collins' header loops back across goal and comfortably wide for a goal kick.
52' - Free-kick in a good position for West Ham after Davide Santon brings down Stewart Downing. Mark Noble stands over it.

HALF TIME - West Ham United 1-2 Newcastle United
The half time whistles blows at the Boleyn Ground.
45+2' - GOAL! West Ham United 1-2 Newcastle United
It's a goal from nowhere and West Ham might have a foothold. Carlton Cole's presence causes problems in the box from an aerial ball and it's deflected in off Mike Williamson on the stroke of half time.
45' - Two minutes added by referee Andre Marriner.
44' - Remy with a great chance to add another but he can't quite a toe on the end of Vurnon Anita's clever pass in the box. Newcastle have been absolutely dominant in this first half.
41' - Magnificent counter attack by the Magpies. Sissoko picks out Tiote on the edge of the box but his shot is blocked for a corner.
40' - A little more cheer around the Boleyn Ground as the home side force a corner on their right, followed by a throw on the left. Newcastle clear.
39' - West Ham try to respond with a cross from the right but it's just too high and the away fans cheer as the ball runs away from danger. The home fans, meanwhile, are restless to say the least.
36' - It's almost three. Howls of derision around the Boleyn Ground as Yohan Cabaye gets all the time in the world to let fly and fully extend Adrian. Good stop.
33' - GOAL! West Ham United 0-2 Newcastle United
Loic Remy with the calmest of finishes. Matt Taylor completely misjudges Sissoko's cross, leaving the striker to chest down and prod beyond Adrian. It's been coming!
31' - Great opening half hour by the Magpies, who could be out of sight by now. The game still in the balance though, with the lead at just one goal.
31' - Newcastle continuing to slice through West Ham at will at the moment. Remy chests down to Cabaye, who looks to get a shot away, but it's blocked and the home side regain possession.
28' - Remy gets patched up quickly by the Newcastle United medical staff and back he comes in a clean 'blood shirt'.
27' - Head wound for Loic Remy and he'll require treatment on the sidelines. The game continues with Newcastle temporarily down to ten men.
25' - Newcastle are well and truly knocking on the door for a second goal. Adrian blocks from Moussa Sissoko, who really should've scored from inside the box, before a Yohan Cabaye strike from just outside the area whistles passed the post with the goalkeeper beaten.
23' - Chance for Jack Collison on the edge of the box. He controls and lashes at goal but Tiote is there again to block.
21' - Bit of a scramble for the ball in the Newcastle box but there are plenty of black and white shirts back defending and Cheick Tiote can eventually clear.
19' - That could and should have been two! The ball enters the box and Yoan Gouffran can only scuff it towards goal on the turn. It's off the line and the advantage stays at one goal.
18' - Yoan Gouffran goes close seconds later but West Ham get back in numbers to block the shot. It'll be a corner for the Magpies.
16' - GOAL! West Ham United 0-1 Newcastle United
Yohan Cabaye picks the ball up on the edge of the box and takes a touch before guiding the ball into the corner. Wonderfully cultured finish.
15' - West Ham employ a long, cross-field ball out to Matt Jarvis who gets the luck of the bounce against Yanga-Mbiwa. He cuts to the byline but his cross is stood up straight into the arms of Tim Krul.
13' - Another strike on goal for Remy, who has looked particularly sharp so far. It's straight at Adrian though and the Hammers goalkeeper can save comfortably.
5' - Good cross by Stewart Downing from West Ham's right-hand side. There are plenty of claret and blue shirts waiting but Newcastle United can clear.
4' - West Ham try to eke out an opening on the left through Rat and Jarvis and force a succession of throw-ins. The Romanian with a long throw eventually, which is cleared.
1' - The Hammers are immediately on the front foot and they force a corner through Mark Noble. Matt Jarvis picks up the cleared ball but his cross is cleared into touch.
