Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
  • Yellow Card
    Jenas (Newcastle) is cautioned by the referee.
    The English midfielder gets a booking for protesting the Hungarian referee's decision.
  • Substitution
    Rose (in) - Prager (out) (Heerenveen)
    One last throw of the dice for the hosts.
  • Substitution
    Taylor (in) - Shearer (out) (Newcastle)
    Shearer makes way as Newcastle reorganise in the wake of Bowyer's sending off.
  • Red/Yellow Card
    Bowyer (Newcastle) is shown a second yellow card and is dismissed.
    A second yellow card for the midfielder after putting out his hand to stop Hestad passing him down the Heerenveen left.
  • Goal
    Bowyer (Newcastle) scores!
    A lovely flick of the heel by Bowyer in front of goal to turn Carr's right-wing cross past Vanderbussche.
  • Substitution
    Sikora (in) - Bruggink (out) (Heerenveen)
    A second change by the hosts as Heerenveen look to refresh their attack.
  • Substitution
    Samaras (in) - Huntelaar (out) (Heerenveen)
    The young goalscorer goes off after a quieter second half.
  • Goal
    Shearer (Newcastle) scores!
    An identical chance for Shearer from another delicate Kluivert pass, and this time there is no mistake from the former England striker.
  • Substitution
    Robert (in) - Sh. Ameobi (out) (Newcastle)
    Not the best end to the night for Ameobi, as Newcastle go back to a more familiar 4-4-2 formation.
  • Yellow Card
    Sh. Ameobi (Newcastle) is shown a yellow card.
    The striker, perhaps frustrated at events on the pitch, is booked for his petty foul on Väyrynen.
  • Substitution
    Hughes (in) - Babayaro (out) (Newcastle)
    The Nigerian full-back hobbles off nursing his right leg.
  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
  • Goal
    Huntelaar (Heerenveen) scores!
    A fabulous finish by the game's outstanding performer so far. Bramble fails to collect a long ball, and it instead finds its way to the 21-year-old. He still has work to do, but turns well onto his left foot and hammers it in off Shay Given's crossbar. A deserved lead and a deserved scorer.
  • Yellow Card
    Pe. Hansson (Heerenveen) is shown a yellow card.
    A clumsy tackle on Ameobi on the Newcastle left earns the defender an early booking. In showing it the referee drops his yellow card, which takes the edge off the home crowd's protests.
  • Start Time
    The match is under way.
