Former British Formula One stars Martin Brundle and Mark Blundell will be team-mates once more as they return to motorsports action at this weekend's 24 Hours of Daytona!!!
The duo, who raced together at the Brabham and Ligier Formula One teams in 1991 and 1993 respectively, are to contest the Florida endurance race with United Autosports in a Ford-Riley Daytona Protype this weekend.
Other Britons competing include 2008 winner and triple IndyCar champion Dario Franchitti and 2010 victor Ryan Dalziel, both from Scotland.
American racer Jimmie Johnson will look to add the title to his five consecutive NASCAR Sprint Cup victories, seeking to become only the third driver to win both the Daytona 500 and the 24 Hours of Daytona after Mario Andretti and AJ Foyt.
British Eurosport will broadcast over live action from the annual race with commentators Martin Haven and Mark Cole on hand to describe events at the Daytona International Speedway.

Newcastle United have rejected an offer believed to be worth £25m for striker Andy Carroll from Tottenham Hotspur, according to reports!!!
Spurs have been tracking 22-year-old Carroll for some time despite Newcastle manager Alan Pardew having repeatedly insisted he is not for sale.
The Londoners have nevertheless tabled a formal bid - reports suggested it was £25million - but Press Association Sport understands they have been told Carroll will not be leaving St James' Park ahead of Monday's transfer deadline.
Carroll has established himself as one of the hottest properties in English football this season with 11 goals to date following his key role in the club's swift return to the Barclays Premier League.
His form won him a first senior international cap in England's 2-1 friendly defeat by France in November.
Carroll has missed the club's last five games with a torn thigh muscle which has proved more problematic than was first thought, and he travelled to Sweden on Friday to consult a specialist.
Pardew has already ruled him out of Wednesday night's trip to Fulham and admits he is touch and go for Arsenal's visit to Tyneside three days later.
It was his header which secured as famous 1-0 victory over the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium on November 7, a win which increased belief that the Magpies could retain their top-flight status.
They currently sit in ninth place in the table with 30 points from 23 games, but knowing that there is still work to be done before they can start planning for an extended stay.
In that context, and despite the efforts of Shola Ameobi, Leon Best, Peter Lovenkrands and Nile Ranger in his absence, Carroll's retention is seen as vital, although interest in him is sure to mount if he continues in the vein of form he was enjoying until injury struck.

Manchester United came from behind to avoid an embarrassing FA Cup fourth round exit, beating a spirited Southampton side 2-1 at St Mary's!!!
Sir Alex Ferguson's men looked destined to go out to League One opposition for the second straight year when Richard Chaplow gave Southampton the lead just before half-time.
But a much-improved second half performance saw goals from Michael Owen and Javier Hernandez take United into the last 16.
United lost to third-tier Leeds United in last season's third round, when Jermaine Beckford scored the only goal at Old Trafford, and a risky team selection by Ferguson meant they sailed close to the wind on the South coast.
United made eight changes from the team that won 3-2 at Blackpool on Tuesday.
Just as ominously - seven of the outfield starters were also in the side that lost 4-0 to West Ham in the Carling Cup, including the entire back four.
The first 45 minutes were uneventful, but it was clear that Southampton were a match for United.
The highly-rated Alex Chamberlain made some positive, pacy runs in midfield, Dan Harding got forward repeatedly from the left-back position and Rickie Lambert went close with some powerful shots.
On the United side, a three-man forward line of Michael Owen, Gabriel Obertan and Javier Hernandez left the midfield exposed.
Gibson was out of his depth. His venomous shooting cannot obscure the reality that he does not look a top class player.
Owen was peripheral in the first half but came as close to scoring as any United player in the first half, accidentally hitting the post with a shanked cross.
Anders Lindegaard made his debut following a £3.5 million move from Aalesund, just days after Edwin van der Sar announced he will retire at the end of the season.
It was the perfect opportunity for the Dane to state his case as Van der Sar's long-term successor, and he looked solid enough and could do nothing about Chaplow's goal in the last minute of the first-half.
The midfielder chested the ball down on a diagonal run inside from the right, and lashed the ball into the top-right corner - a superb goal.
A Ferguson rocket at half-time, combined with a midfield reshuffle, turned the game around. Ryan Giggs and Nani replaced Gibson and Anderson, giving United width and creativity.
Owen's equaliser came on 65 minutes following a cross from the otherwise disappointing Obertan. The ball appeared to come off a Southampton hand, but Owen did not wait for the referee's whistle, heading the ball into the far corner.
Fifteen from minutes from time, the comeback was complete. Owen intercepted a loose Ryan Dickson pass and found Giggs, who in turn played a through ball to Hernandez. The Mexican's first touch was not great, but his second had just enough power to roll in off the post despite a touch from goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski.
Southampton were physically finished, and the match petered out thereafter; United kept the ball for minutes at a time allowing no possibility of a late Southampton flurry.

This is the Pagani Huayra, the successor to the Zonda, named after Aymara Huayra Tata, a South American Andean god of wind which supposedly commands the winds, hurricanes and blizzards. The design is easily identifiable as a Pagani, from the forward cab shape to the rear end which shows off its quad tailpipe design.
At the heart of the new Pagani Huayra is a Mercedes-Benz AMG 60 degree V12 with 5,930cc of displacement designated to M158, and thanks to two turbochargers it makes over 700 horsepower and torque of over 1,000Nm. That’s a huge torque upgrade over the Zonda R’s 710Nm, but that’s to be expected thanks to the forced induction.

Liverpool moved up to seventh in the Premier League table with a fortuitous 1-0 win over Fulham at Anfield!!!
A comical own goal from John Pantsil soon after the break was enough to send Liverpool into the top seven for the first time in their stuttering campaign.
It says much for the congested nature of the top flight this season that had Fulham won this match they would have gone above Liverpool into 11th place on goal difference. As it is, they remain 15th, four points above the relegation zone.
Liverpool managed to hold on to take their place in the final Europa League spot, while Fulham faced a long journey home reflecting upon an atrocious record of just one win in their last 30 league outings on the road.

Barca had it wrapped up by half time with Messi netting twice and Villa and Pedro also on the scoresheet. Esteban was dreadful in the opening 45 minutes but improved after the break before being beaten by substitute Keita for number five.

The incremental build model is a method of software development where the model is designed, implemented and tested incrementally (a little more is added each time) until the product is finished. It involves both development and maintenance. The product is defined as finished when it satisfies all of its requirements. This model combines the elements of the waterfall model with the iterative philosophy of prototyping.
The product is decomposed into a number of components, each of which are designed and built separately (termed as builds). Each component is delivered to the client when it is complete. This allows partial utilisation of product and avoids a long development time. It also creates a large initial capital outlay with the subsequent long wait avoided. This model of development also helps ease the traumatic effect of introducing completely new system all at once.
There are some problems with this model. One is that each new build must be integrated with previous builds and any existing systems. The task of decomposing product into builds is not trivial either. If there are few builds and each build degenerates this turns into Build-And-Fix model. However if there are too many builds then there is little added utility from each build.
1.Requirements: This defines needed information, function, behavior, performance and interfaces.
2.Design: Data structures, software architecture, interface representations, algorithmic details.
3.Implementation: source code, database, user documentation, testing.
1)Combine elements of linear and parallel process flow.
2)Incremental process flows apllied sequence ina staggered fashion as calendar time progresses.
3)Decomposed into a number of components, each of which are designed and built separately
1)Focus on the delivery of an operational product with each increment.
2)Provide clients flexibility in making their decision.
3) Customer’s confidence is high as they validate every increment and provide feedback
1) Needs good planning and design.
2) Needs a clear and complete definition of the complete system before it can be broken down and built incrementally.
3) Integration needs are very high
1)Core product is well received and additional staff can be added to implement.
2) project which have lengthly development schedule.
3)Essential pars of the Rational Unified Process.

Dimitar Berbatov hit a second half double as Manchester United came from two goals down to beat Blackpool 3-2 at Bloomfield Road and go five points clear at the top of the Premier League!!!
Former United man Craig Cathcart headed Blackpool ahead after 15 minutes before DJ Campbell doubled the advantage two minutes before the break as the Seasiders looked to capitalise on a lacklustre first-half display by the visitors.
But Berbatov halved the deficit after 72 minutes and Javier Hernandez soon drew United level before the Bulgarian completed the 16-minute comeback with two minutes remaining.
United travelled to Bloomfield Road unbeaten in 27 Premier League games and having thrashed Birmingham City 5-0 at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Sir Alex Ferguson made four changes to that side, with Darren Fletcher, John O’Shea, Paul Scholes and Darron Gibson all starting.
Charlie Adam kept his place in Blackpool’s starting line-up despite handing in a transfer request, with Ian Holloway making two changes - Alex Baptiste and Campbell added to the line-up – to the team that lost 2-1 at home to Sunderland.
Blackpool's last league victory over United came way back in 1963 but the hosts took the lead when Cathcart, signed by Blackpool from United in the summer, delivered a bullet header from Adam’s corner after being left free by Berbatov.
And, with Berbatov and Wayne Rooney isolated, Holloway’s side continued to play the better football, with Edwin van der Sar producing a smart save to stop captain Nemanja Vidic heading into his own net.
Vidic soon gifted Blackpool another gilt-edged chance, with the Serbian’s poor clearance gifting Luke Varney possession before Elliot Grandin fired over from 12 yards.
That sparked Ferguson into action and the United boss issued Rooney with barrage of instructions, pushing the England striker into a central possession as the visitors reverted to 4-4-2.
Gibson then registered United’s first shot on target , after 34 minutes, shooting straight at Richard Kingson from distance, before Nani fired over from 20 yards with four minutes of the first half remaining.
But there was still time for Blackpool, whose starting line-up cost just £3.5 million to assemble, to double their lead.
David Vaughan’s long-range shot had Van der Sar at full-stretch, forcing a corner, and Adam’s near-post cross was inadvertently flicked on by Nani, allowing Campbell to nod home unmarked.
Ryan Giggs replaced Gibson at half-time but if Ferguson unleashed his trademark hairdryer during the break then it had little immediate effect.
Gary Taylor-Fletcher was allowed to break free on the right flank before driving to the byline and firing in a low cross which Rafael cleared from under his own bar.
But with Blackpool tiring quickly, Ferguson’s troops began to find their feet, with Scholes seeing a trademark drive from the edge of the box punched clear by Kingson and Giggs, the driving force behind United's turnaround, shooting wide from Nani’s deep cross.
Rooney’s disappointing night ended after 66 minutes when the striker, who has only scored three times in the league this season, was replaced by Hernandez.
The Mexican almost had an instant impact, drifting behind the Blackpool defence but shooting straight at Kingson, who did well to make himself big.
But United forced their way back into the game when Nani delivered a neat reverse pass to set Fletcher free, with the Scotsman's cross then side-footed home by Berbatov from close range
Blackpool were dead on their feet and Hernandez capitalised, again beating the offside trap and latching onto Giggs’s lofted through-ball before firing low past Kingson.
Rafael required lengthy treatment and was stretchered off after a clash of heads with Marlon Harewood, eventually leading to 10 minutes of added time.
But the Brazilian would have heard the cheers from the United fans as he was being carried down the tunnel after Scholes released Berbatov down the right channel and the Bulgarian unleashed an unstoppable left-footed shot past Kingson for his 20th goal of the season.

Real Madrid have boosted their push for honours by signing Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor on loan for the rest of the season!!!
The 26-year-old Togolese international will travel to Madrid on Wednesday to undergo a medical.
Real will have the option to sign Adebayor on a permanent basis at the end of the season and Spanish media reports said they could pay around 15 million euros (£12.97 million) for him.
The powerful frontman will provide Real coach Jose Mourinho with an extra attacking option following a back injury to Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain that will sideline him until around April.
Mourinho has been pushing the club for another centre-forward since arriving from Inter Milan last year and with Higuain's injury and Karim Benzema's failure to live up to expectations the pressure had grown during January.
France striker Benzema has only scored two league goals this season as Real chase La Liga leaders Barcelona, prepare for a Copa del Rey semi-final and the Champions League knockout stages.
Real's first choice as a stand-in appeared to be their former striker Ruud van Nistelrooy but Hamburg refused to release him.
Moving for Adebayor, the 2008 African Player of the Year, had the added bonus that he is a free to play for Real in the Champions League.
Adebayor started his career in France with Metz and AS Monaco before making his name after signing for Arsenal in 2006.
He scored 62 goals in 142 appearances in all competitions with Arsene Wenger's side before moving to Manchester City on a five-year contract in 2009 for around £25m.
He managed 19 goals in 36 starts for City but has dropped out of the reckoning this season and was pushed further towards the door when City signed Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko this month.

Lille's lead in the French league and their continued involvement in Europe has seen them move into the top 20 of our European club rankings!!!
HOW IT WORKS
This season we are using the Hypercube Infostrada Euro Club Index, which scientifically analyses hundreds of thousands of matches from the top divisions in all European nations as well as Europa League and Champions League games.
The Index takes into account all matches played over an eight-year period but with recent results carrying more weight than older ones. The most recent result has 20 times more impact than a result of three years ago.
The Euro Club Index ranking system has been slightly revised. The performance of a league's teams in Champions League and Europa League reflects the rise or fall of the sporting level in that league. So, for example, if English teams perform well in Europe, all Premier League teams receive a small bonus in their ECI score. The ranking and its predictive power are thus made even more accurate.

Driving a Peugeot France 207 Super 2000, the 32-year-old from Die in the nearby Drome region, took the lead on a dramatic seventh stage on Thursday afternoon when a freak snowfall coated much of the mountainous roads and made driving conditions treacherous.

Dimitar Berbatov grabbed his third hat-trick of the season as Manchester United hammered Birmingham 5-0 an embarrassingly one-sided Premier League contest at Old Trafford!!!
Also starting the move that led to Ryan Giggs’s goal, Berbatov was imperious in all aspects of his game, leading the line with strength and poise and finishing with his head and boot as he carved a poor Birmingham side apart.
Nani added a late fifth in a match that plunged Birmingham back into a relegation dogfight and sent out a title warning to United’s rivals.
It should have been more. Ben Foster was overworked in the Birmingham goal, Nani was wasteful with his shooting and crossing and - when he did get his final ball right - Wayne Rooney missed an absolute sitter as his strange season continues.
Birmingham, for their part, rarely threatened and only looked like scoring when Keith Fahey bettered Rooney’s miss when he kicked air at the far post with the goal at his mercy.
The result keeps United top with games in hand on their rivals. Birmingham hover one point above the drop zone, 16th but with a game in hand on sides below.
A rampant, strutting United dominated from the outset as Berbatov in particular played like football was going out of fashion.
They took the lead within 90 seconds, the first of countless Giggs corners flicked on by John O’Shea and nodded over the line by Berbatov as Birmingham marked zonally but forgot to attack the ball.
Three minutes later Berbatov was denied by the legs of Foster, the former United keeper atoning for a rotten clearance with a smart save from 12 yards.
Birmingham barely touched the ball, with David Bentley the only real threat from wide positions but not helped by a confused Matt Derbyshire, not physically up to leading the line as a lone striker.
United bombarded the Blues goal and thought they had a second when Chris Smalling - in for the injured Rio Ferdinand - headed a corner against the manhood of poor David Murphy, amd Nemanja Vidic rolled the loose ball home, but referee Mike Jones blew for an infringement in the crowded penalty area.
Bentley rattled United briefly with some excellent crosses from the left flank but his team-mates’ movement did not match his delivery and, scare over, the hosts doubled their lead in style just after the half hour.
Rooney charged from halfway, finding Berbatov all too easily and the Bulgarian effortless cut inside Roger Johnson and drilled a low shot past Foster to double his and United’s haul.
It was game over but United were happy to continue their assault. Rooney sent Berbatov through with a cheeky stepover but the ex-Spurs man was unable to add to what is now his record Premier League season haul of 16 when he smacked the ball wide.
They did get a third before the break and it was worth delaying the customary half-time trip to the bar.
After being played a faint hospital ball by Bentley, Murphy’s poor touch allowed Berbatov to hook the ball with a slide-tackle, before exchanging a slick one-two with Rooney. The England striker picked out Giggs at the far post, whose rasping drive into the roof of the net left Foster a spectator.
It was a delightful team goal - Rooney backheeled the ball during the move, while Berbatov’s determination to kick it all off typified his new-found all-action approach this season - and a vital one in that it extended United’s goal difference well beyond Arsenal’s, a statistic that may well be relevant at the end of a tight season.
Birmingham started the second half gamely enough but without asking any questions of Edwin van der Sar. United, meanwhile, should have had an early fourth but Rooney inexplicably headed wide from point-blank range when Nani’s cross put the goal at his mercy.
Bentley went close for Birmingham, drilling just wide after squeezing past Anderson and Fabio da Silva, but United added a fourth when Berbatov rifled in a finish off the bar after superb work by Rooney and Giggs on the left.
Then came Fahey’s miss, as the Irishman somehow failed to convert at the far post after Van der Sar saved Derbyshire’s low drive, sparing Vidic’s blushes as it was his blunder that let the former Blackburn forward in.
In the closing stages Nani, Michael Owen, Berbatov and Rooney all had half-chances, with Nani compensating for his earlier profligacy when he hammered a wicked low drive into the bottom left for a fifth: he spurned several more chances afterwards, but it mattered little with the match well won.
United stay unbeaten in the Premier League after the win, with Birmingham falling to their seventh loss of the campaign.

Kenny Dalglish finally got the first victory of his second spell in charge of Liverpool with a 3-0 Premier League win over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux!!!
Fernando Torres gave the Reds a deserved lead on 36 minutes with a simple tap-in after Raul Meireles had beaten the offside trap, before the Portuguese doubled the advantage with a stunning strike just after half-time. Torres then added a third in injury time.
The win ends Liverpool's woeful run of five straight away defeats and lifts them, temporarily at least, into the top half of the table. Wolves remain in the bottom three.
Just 24 days after Stephen Ward's goal sealed a famous win for Wolves at Anfield which helped hasten the departure of Roy Hodgson, Liverpool finally started showing sustained signs of renewed vigour under Dalglish on their trip to the Midlands.
Whether it was the lack of quality in Wolves' defending or a renewed boldness in the Liverpool players instilled by Dalglish, the visitors were by far the more attacking side at Molineux.
The same static Wolves defending that led to the goal was evident early on when Lucas Leiva was allowed to charge down the channel and pull a ball back to Christian Poulsen from the byline. The Danish midfielder, recalled to the Liverpool line-up in place of youngster Jay Spearing, had his sidefooted effort blocked en route to goal.
Midway through the first half Meireles found Torres with a long diagonal ball, and the Spain forward drew a decent save from Wayne Hennessey when perhaps he might have done better. Torres then returned the favour by backheeling into the path of Meireles, who fired wide of the far post with a low drive.
Soon afterwards Liverpool were ahead via Torres's eighth goal of the season, but they almost gifted Wolves an equaliser in first-half stoppage time when Nenad Milijas was unmarked at the far post and forced the hitherto untroubled Pepe Reina into action with a point-blank stop.
Wolves showed characteristic spirit at the start of the second half, but they soon found themselves two goals down with Meireles's second goal in as many games.
Christophe Berra could only head a long ball back to the Portugal international, who struck a fiercely dipping volley into the top corner, giving Hennessey no chance. Meireles finally getting amongst the goals, and developing a good understanding with Torres in the absence of the suspended Steven Gerrard, could be a major factor in any change to Liverpool's fortunes.
Still the home side refused to quit, but their lack of cutting edge was exposed following a series of set pieces and decent deliveries into the Liverpool box.
Both sides introduced young prospects as the half wore on. Wolves brought on former Liverpool trainee Adam Hammill for his debut, while Dalglish continued to show his faith in young midfielder Jonjo Shelvey by maintaining his run of appearances from the bench in each of his four matches back in charge.
Both almost made an instant impact. Hammill's delightful curling cross completely outfoxed Liverpool's centre-backs but it was not met by a team-mate. Shelvey then fired over the bar after Meireles picked him out with a cross on the break.
Torres got his second goal and Liverpool's third in stoppage time after Dirk Kuyt's surging run ended with the Dutchman being tackled in the Wolves box. The ball broke free for Torres to smash home from close range, sealing the win as Liverpool avoided having Wolves complete a first league double over them for 60 years.

Robin van Persie scored a hat-trick as Arsenal went second in the Premier League with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Wigan Athletic at the Emirates Stadium!!!
The Dutch striker opened the scoring after 22 minutes and added a second 13 minutes after the break.
He missed a golden opportunity to record the first League hat-trick of his career when he lifted a 71st minute penalty over the crossbar following a professional foul by Gary Caldwell on Cesc Fabregas that saw the Wigan skipper dismissed.
But he swept home from close range five minutes from time to finally record his treble as the Gunners kept the pressure on Manchester United at the top of the table.
Wigan stay in the relegation zone and only a superb performance from on-loan goalkeeper Ali Al-Habsi prevented Arsene Wenger’s men from running up a cricket score.
The Omani custodian was called on early to get down sharply to his right to deny a fierce shot from Samir Nasri and then made the pick of his many saves after a diagonal ball from Gael Clichy found Theo Walcott who squared to Van Persie but Al-Habsi managed to push the shot around the post from eight yards.
Gary Caldwell made a wonderful block to block a Fabregas shot before the inevitable breakthrough came after 22 minutes as Alex Song threaded the ball through to Van Persie and the in-form striker slammed the ball past the advancing Al-Habsi from 10 yards.
Steve Caldwell had his hand up for offside but Van Persie was level with left-back Maynor Figueroa allowing the Dutchman to record his first goal at the Emirates Stadium this season.
The onslaught continued thereafter with Al-Habsi denying Fabregas and Nasri on three separate occasions before Figueroa made a last-gasp tackle just as the skipper looked set to slot the ball in at the near post after sublimely nutmegging Steven Caldwell in the penalty area.
Of Arsenal’s 13 goal attempts in the opening 45 minutes none were more clear cut than the one wasted by Walcott who when faced with a one-on-one with Al-Habsi, opted to try and square to Fabregas who was denied by a sliding challenge from Gary Caldwell.
It was more of the same after the break, Nasri seeing a shot deflected behind for a corner and Walcott screwing an effort wide from a tight angle before Van Persie added a sublime second. Fabregas’ quick pass over the top caught Wigan napping and Van Persie volleyed home.
Wigan have only scored eight Premier League away goals, the fewest in the division, and failed to test Wojciech Szczesny all afternoon. It took until the 65th minute for their first effort on goal only for half-time sub Franco Di Santo to power a header wide.
The Scottish brothers at the heart of the Wigan defence were consistently caught square and the Latics were reduced to 10 men 20 minutes from time when a superbly weighted pass from Song left Gary Caldwell flat footed and he hauled down Fabregas who was bearing down on goal.
Referee Kevin Friend has no hesitation in pointing to the spot and brandishing the red card but Van Persie missed his first Premier League penalty since 2007.
Van Persie looked as if he would be denied that elusive hat-trick when he cut inside on to his favoured left-foot only for his curling effort to hit the outside of the post but Wigan were caught square again late on and Walcott held off Figueroa to allow the former Feyenoord man to blast the ball into the net from close range.
He left almost immediately to a standing ovation as Arsenal extended their unbeaten run to a season-high six games in the Premier League.

Tottenham Hotspur fought back to claim a 1-1 draw with Newcastle United at St James' Park in an exciting Premier League clash!!!
Fabricio Coloccini fired the Magpies ahead on the hour mark of a match with plenty of chances at both ends, before Aaron Lennon grabbed a dramatic stoppage-time equaliser.
Securing that late point sees Spurs draw level with fourth-placed Chelsea, ahead of the Blues' trip to Bolton on Monday, and Newcastle move up to eighth above Stoke City on goal difference.
Lennon, who hit the late winner in Tottenham's comeback victory over Liverpool back in November, scored his third goal of the season to salvage a point, the 17th Spurs have recouped from losing positions this season.
Andy Carroll was again missing for Newcastle as he continues to recover from a thigh injury, so Leon Best and Shola Ameobi comprised the Magpies' attack.
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp made four changes, with reserve goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini, former Newcastle midfielder Jermaine Jenas, striker Jermain Defoe and debutant Steven Pienaar all coming into the side.
Not long into the match Redknapp was forced to make another change after Gareth Bale, playing at left-back behind Pienaar, picked up an injury. Sebastien Bassong came on in his stead after just 11 minutes.
None of the last 21 league meetings between these two sides had finished as a draw, so it was no surprise to see chances at both ends in an open encounter.
Defoe fired wide early on before Ameobi sent a pair of strikes into the stand behind Cudicini's goal.
Both sides edged closer to an opener, with Newcastle goalkeeper Steve Harper doing well to force Defoe wide after a fortunate rebound put the England forward through on goal before Best's looping effort hit the bar at the other end.
Harper was called into action again in the final act of the half as Spurs were in the ascendant. Pienaar found Rafael van der Vaart on the edge of the area and the Dutchman flicked a delightful backheel into Defoe's path, but Harper was equal to the strike.
The pattern remained much the same in the second half. Best headed wide and had a shot blocked in the first few minutes after the restart while Jenas fired wide and Pienaar was denied by a well-timed tackle by Coloccini.
Just moments after that challenge, Coloccini made an even bigger contribution at the other end.
The Argentine defender took a long diagonal ball on his chest, got past Alan Hutton and fired in a strike that Cudicini could not keep out despite getting a hand to it.
Spurs fought back, with Lennon forcing a near-post stop from Harper and Luka Modric crashing an effort off the crossbar, but they struggled to find a way through the Newcastle backline despite hogging the possession for extended periods.
In fact, Newcastle looked likely to score a second, and Cudicini had to make a block when one-on-one with substitute Peter Lovenkrands before tipping an Ameobi effort over the bar.
However, the introduction of Crouch added another dimension to Spurs' play, and it paid dividends in the first of four added minutes. The tall forward's flick-on found Defoe, who played the ball out to Lennon on the left. The winger cut inside and skipped across the box before firing in a clinical low drive into the near bottom corner to grab a share of the points.

Having pulled the covers off the bike during its high-profile 2011 MotoGP launch last week, Ducati have finally put the new GP11 through its paces with a first test of the year at Jerez!!!!
With neither Valentino Rossi nor Nicky Hayden riding the machine, duties are instead being assumed by a test team comprising of Vittoriano Guareschi and Franco Battaini.
The outing has been arranged as an opportunity for the team to better understand the GP11, as well as form an effective base setting for Rossi and Hayden when they get to ride the bike during the first official pre-season test at Sepang next month.
"It was a very productive day, even though the track's grip was really bad, in part because of the high humidity and in part because the F3 test that took place until yesterday left the asphalt quite dirty," Guareschi told GPOne.com
"As planned, 'Batta' and I divided the responsibilities. I worked on the chassis with the goal of improving turn-in, while Franco concentrated on the electronics, including the new anti-wheelie and anti-spin systems that we're testing and adjusting. I think we found a couple of interesting things with the set-up that help with the front-end feel.
"We worked on ride height, seat position, and on many aspects of bike set-up that will help with all of the data-acquisition work that is necessary to be ready for Malaysia, when Vale and Nicky will ask us to change the bike in various ways.
"It's a refinement process that will proceed for the two days in order to speed up the factory riders' work in Malaysia."

The leading three are all members of the Volkswagen team.
"It means a lot to win the Dakar, for me, for my people, my country and my team," said Al-Attiyah.
"It is a great victory. It's very difficult to explain what is happening in my head. But it's very nice .
