  1. FULL-TIME

    Watford 2-1 Newcastle

  2. Post update

    Watford 2-1 Newcastle

    Extraordinary heading by Newcastle sub Emmanuel Riviere. Another great ball comes from the right but the French striker heads as far away from goal as manageable. Beggars belief!

  3. CLOSE!

    Watford 2-1 Newcastle

    A corner comes in from the right and arrives at the head of Aleksandar Mitrovic who heads wide from six yards - he should have hit the target.

    Nordin Amrabat comes on for his Watford debut in the 93rd minute.

  4. SUBSTITUTIONS

    Watford 2-1 Newcastle

    Desperate times for the Magpies - striker Emmanuel Riviere comes on.

    Watford bring on the reliable full-back Allan Nyom.

  5. Post update

    Watford 2-1 Newcastle

    Watford have possession in midfield - they are understandably slowing down the tempo.

  6. GREAT SAVE!

    Watford 2-1 Newcastle

    Rob Elliot keeps Newcastle in the game with a strong stop to prevent Odion Ighalo's fierce angled effort from bursting the net.

    There's another goal in this, surely.

  7. WATFORD SUBSTITUTION

    Watford 2-1 Newcastle

    Almen Abdi comes on for Jose Manuel Jurado.

  8. Lascelles gives Magpies hope

    Watford 2-1 Newcastle

    Defender Jamaal Lascelles scores his first ever goal for the Magpies in his first league start.

    The former Nottingham Forest man climbs highest to head in Jonjo Shelvey's corner. He bangs his face against the a Watford's defender's head in the process and produces a wee bit of claret. Shirt change follows.

    Game back on!

  9. GOAL - Watford 2-1 Newcastle

  10. Post update

    Watford 2-0 Newcastle

    IGHALOOOO! NOOOO! 

    The ball comes to the Nigeria striker eight yards out, but he somehow misdirects it. Almost as bad as Ayoze Perez's earlier effort.

  11. Odion Ighalo back on form

    Watford 2-0 Newcastle

    Odion Ighalo of Watford

    Odion Ighalo's opener for Watford was the third quickest second-half goal scored in the Premier League so far this season. It came after 44 seconds.

    Ighalo has now scored seven goals in his last seven league appearances at Vicarage Road.

  12. Post update

    Watford 2-0 Newcastle

    Contender for worst header this season? 

    Moussa Sissoko curls a delightful cross into the area but Ayoze Perez gets it horribly wrong as the ball comes off the top of his head.

  13. Newcastle 'desperate'

    Watford 2-0 Newcastle

    Garth Crooks

    Former Spurs striker on Final Score

    "There is something about Newcastle’s play that looks desperate to me. They didn’t defend the second goal well at all, Coloccini is not playing well today."

  14. VERY CLOSE

    Watford 2-0 Newcastle

    Newcastle's Yoan Gouffran, who along with Ayoze Perez has come on as a substitute, heads wide with the goal at his mercy. The Frenchman really should have scored.

  15. 'Cathcart thrashes in second'

    Watford 2-0 Newcastle

    The Magpies crumble at the back as Watford's forwards come to life.

    The ball is played into the area and finds the head of striker Troy Deeney. The skipper heads back across goal and finds Odion Ighalo who uses his strength to shield the ball and lay it to Craig Cathcart who lashes home.

    A fantastic response in the second half by the home side.

  16. GOAL - Watford 2-0 Newcastle

  17. 44 seconds

    Watford 1-0 Newcastle

    Odion Ighalo's goal came only 44 seconds after the restart. 

  18. YELLOW CARD

    Watford 1-0 Newcastle

    Chancel Mbemba goes into the book for a foul on Troy Deeney. They look at sixes and sevens at the moment.
