    This remarkable match witnesses another goal as Newcastle restore their three-goal lead.

    Arveladze (AZ) scores!
    AZ have made a habit of comebacks in this competition this season and they have begun their bid to do the same again against Newcastle after Shota Arveladze sent a diving header in off the underside of the bar from Julian Jenner's teasing right-wing cross. The goal is the Georgian's sixth goal in seven UEFA Cup appearances.

    23
    Martins (Newcastle) scores!
    Newcastle score their second goal in as many minutes to go 3-0 up. Sibierski was again the provider, spraying a pass from just inside his own half from right to left where Obafemi Martins picked up the ball and took on three AZ defenders before lashing it low past Waterman for his fifth goal in eight UEFA Cup games this season.
  • Goal
    22
    Dyer (Newcastle) scores!
    After playing a major part in Newcastle's first goal, Dyer now scores himself. The midfielder latched onto Antoine Sibierski's flick before taking the ball on into the penalty area and chipping it over the advancing goalkeeper Boy Waterman. It is his first goal in the UEFA Cup in almost two years, since finding the net in the quarter-final against Sporting Clube de Portugal in 2004/05.

    Newcastle United FC are in front after the unfortunate Grétar Steinsson turned the ball into his own net after Kieron Dyer's cut-back from the left caused havoc in the AZ Alkmaar penalty area. Dyer was played in by a cute back-heel from Damien Duff near the touchline.
