Victories are a tonic at the bottom of any division, and Newcastle's good work at Burnley has quelled their flirtation with the relegation zone.

The kick-off was delayed by 30 minutes due to a medical emergency in the tunnel, and it was the Magpies who came out firing on the opening whistle.

An own goal by Ben Mee was cruelly deflected by the defender into his net, with Federico Fernandez being credited with an assist. Newcastle doubled their lead after Ciaran Clark headed home off a cross from Matt Ritchie off a short corner.

Burnley slowly began to find their feet during the first half. The hosts were rewarded five minutes before the interval with a fantastic header from Sam Vokes. Mee provided a terrific long pass behind the defence.

Newcastle continued to turn the screw in the second half, displaying their hunger for the fight, and should have added a third as they raced towards a rare away success.

Joselu hit the woodwork with 11 minutes remaining, but Vokes should have grabbed an equaliser in the final moments.

It was Newcastle's first away win since beating Leicester in April, giving the visitors three consecutive victories in the Premier League.
