Burnley 1 Newcastle 0 – Watch the official match highlights and goal here
It ended Burnley 1 Newcastle 0 on Saturday afternoon.
A desperate performance and poor result as Steve Bruce’s negative tactics finally saw NUFC pay the price.
The charmed run of form that delivered four wins and a draw in the previous six games at last seeing the luck run out.
Newcastle didn’t have a single effort on target.
In truth they did deliver the usual two chances per game average, only Andy Carroll put an early header well wide when in a great position and Dwight Gayle put his left foot shot wide when it was easier to score.
However, Martin Dubravka made a few very good saves but was at fault along with others for the winning goal.
