WHO'S GOING TO BE YOUR

MAN OF THE MATCH?

Match summary

Chris Wood's second-half goal earned Burnley a first win in four matches as they defeated Newcastle United 1-0 at Turf Moor.

Andy Carroll might have given Newcastle an early lead, but headed Isaac Hayden's cross wide.

Burnley struck on 58 minutes, when Ashley Westwood's corner was nodded in at the far post by Wood.

Newcastle pressed for an equaliser, Joelinton's first-time volley flying narrowly wide of Nick Pope's post and Dwight Gayle denied by the Burnley goalkeeper late on.

Victory moves Burnley up to 12th place on 21 points.

A first defeat in three leaves Newcastle a place and point above the Clarets.
