Newcastle United are hosting Burnley this evening at St James’ Park as the Magpies aim to get back to winning ways.
Steve Bruce’s side lost to Brighton before pinching a point against Tottenham in the final moments thanks to that controversial penalty against Eric Dier. Burnley have two defeats to their name and will be desperate to pick up points themselves before the international break.
Follow all the action below:
90+4 mins: Full time. Newcastle have been decent tonight. Not quite the expansion, flowing team the fans want but they’ve shown enough promise going forward to handle the teams around them in the league. Allan Saint-Maximin was exceptional, Callum Wilson continues to impress and most importantly they got the three points.
Burnley are all over the place. Problems at the back, a loack of creativity up top, the midfield isn’t commanding enough. Sean Dyche won’t be too impressed with that performance. The visitors had a good 15-20 mins at the start of the second half but quickly fell apart.

80 mins: Manquillo is fouled by Brownhill over on the right wing for Newcastle. Burnley have thrown themselves into their tackles all night. It hasn’t worked.

Newcastle 3 – 1 Burnley – Wilson
77 mins: GOAL! Callum Wilson dinks the penalty straight down the middle, he’s got four goals in four games for Newcastle. What a signing he’s turning out to be.

Penalty to Newcastle!
76 mins: Tarkowski passes the ball back to Darlow. His touch is poor and the ball runs away. Darlow scrambles to regain the ball and takes out Ryan Fraser. No problems with that one.

72 mins: Allan Saint-Maximin limps off the pitch and is replaced with Ryan Fraser for the final 20 minutes or so.
Burnley will be happier, Saint-Maximin has been the best player on the park tonight.

69 mins: Dale Stephens goes off for Burnley with Johann Berg Gudmundsson coming on. McNeil tries his luck trying to stop Saint-Maximin, he does but is shown a yellow card for his effort.

Newcastle 2 – 1 Burnley – Wilson
65 mins: GOAL! Allan Saint-Maximin to the rescue again. He collects the ball out on the left and runs past two defenders on his way into the box. Wilson makes a run to the far post and Saint-Maximin puts it on a plate for him. Easy tap in, Wilson’s first goal at St. James’ Park for Newcastle, the Magpies back in front.
