1
Shelvey engineers some space and cracks a shot, which Coloccini blocks. Unfortunately for referee Chris Foy, the ball cannons straight into his face.

Kick-off
Newcastle get the ball rolling for the first half...

Players just about to make their way out onto the pitch. Enjoy the game.

Tony Hockey: I think this will be a tough game for Newcastle today, Swansea are only 3 points above relegation, the Swans will want to push for 3 points to give some breathing space. I honestly don't know how Gosling has managed to get a place or Ben Arfa, Pardew's tactics toward the latter part of the season have been dreadful, losing Cabaye hasn't helped and the fact Mike Ashley hasn't spent money! I'm going for 1-1 and Gouffran to score first. #NUFC

Lee Hagan: Pardew has lost the plot, there is no movement or goals in that forward line, his tactics are a joke. Season is over, why not give young Armstrong a chance? Swansea to win 3-0.

If you fancy a bet on today's game, our friends at SkyBet have several price boosts on offer. Yoan Gouffran has gone from 8/1 to 9/1 to score first, while Pablo Hernandez is now 14/1 to open the scoring. Nerwcastle to win is rated at 14/1, while it's 10/1 for a Swamsea win.

Gordon, Rob, Laura and Karen: Pardew has gotta inspire the team to a win today, as his head is on the chopping block, although today being the last of his touchline bans should see a good run to the finishing post for the Toon. Hopefully DeJong to break his duck and get a goal and Cisse to grab one for the win. We reckon 2-1 for the Toon. Howay The Lads! Come On The Toon!!!

Chris Green: Swansea to win 3-0, with De Guzman getting a hat-trick.

Cian Hughes: I think this'll be a very boring game. Newcastle haven't been as good since Cabaye left. I'm going for a 1-1 draw.
