WONDER-SAVE! Krul somehow claws out a point blank diving header from Snodgrass.
It's a scrappy affair now. City have done a lot better this second half, but it's been an unlovely thing. Four minutes to go, plus presumably a good deal of added time.
Final City sub. Tettey has come on, replacing Hooper.
Anyway, two teams of 10 for the last 15 minutes or so.
But we don't know why Johnson has been shown the red.
Bradley Johnson has been shown a red card as well, for the same incident. We're watching all the replays we can find. Remy moves his head towards Johnson, who reacts... theatrically.
RED CARD. Remy is off - he shoved Johnson in the face. And we all know referees tend to react in a singular fashion to that sort of thing.
Remy and Johnson enter a round of shoving.
Huge shouts for a penalty from the away support after a ball appears to cannon into Bassong's hands. It would have been harsh if so - not a lot he could have done about it.
OFF THE BAR! Gary Hooper almost scores, turning sharply and bouncing an effort off the bar.
And off he goes. Shola Ameobi replaces him.
Ben Arfa signals to the Newcastle bench - he wants off.
Ben Arfa rugby tackles Olsson here, and concedes the foul. He then stays on the ground, drawing some harsh noises from the the home crowd. Seb Bassong is nice - he's helping him stretch his leg.
Elmander is also on, replacing RVW.
Nathan Redmond comes on, replacing Anthony Pilkington.
Nathan Redmond is warming up as well now. Looks like a change is in the offing for City, who are looking for inspiration here.
Ameobi heads it wide of the near post.
Another corner to Newcastle
SAVE. Remy meets a cross with his head, but it's weak and streaight at Ruddy.
Remy and Ben Arfa are over it once more.
Another dangerous free kick for Newcastle. Ben Arfa again causing problems, this time Fer it is who brings him down.
Newcastle get a break of their own wrong now. Promising run from Debuchy ends with him running it more or less straight over the touchline.
Swansea have gone one to the good over Fulham.
But that final ball lets us down again.
Remy denied by Canary woodwork. That's the third time tonight.
Ben Arfa and Remy over it...
Danger. RVW's attempted tackle on Ben Arfa upends the Newcastle man right on the edge of the City area.
YELLOW CARD! Sissoko goes into the book for blocking an attempted kick from Ruddy.
Elmander and Becchio warming up for city.
Debuchy buckles under a Snodgrass challenge that crunches his shin somewhat. Free kick to Newcastle.
Looks like Gary Hooper is carrying a knock here, which isn't what I want to be typing.
PENALTY SHOUT! Ben Arfa tumbles under the challenge of a City player who was on the same pitch, certainly, but otherwise not really anywhere near him.
Fierce strike from RVW! Good stuff there. It deflects behind but the corner comes to nothing.
Good build up from City here. Hooper collects from RVW and sets Snodgrass on his way. He cuts in but fires wide.
Vocal support from the crowd as action resumes. It's great to hear.
Here come the rest of the players. They'll be looking for a different showing in the second 45.
John Ruddy's back out for his warm up. Eager
That wasn't a good half from City, to be fair, but Newcastle have failed to land the punch their play probably deserved. It's all to play for.
