Burnley 1 Newcastle United 2

Sam Vokes’ fifth goal of the season was not enough to spare a fourth home league defeat of the season for the Clarets as their brave fightback fell just short. 

 Two goals in the opening quarter of the game were enough to give Newcastle their first away win of the season and third victory on the spin to move further away from the bottom three of the Premier League.

 The Clarets remain just one place and one point above the relegation places as their winless run extended to six games.

 But Sean Dyche’s men didn’t go down without a scrap as they showed the commitment and desire needed for the mid-winter battles that may be to come.

 Vokes’ stunning header just before half-time lifted the mood around Turf Moor.

 And in a stirring finish the Clarets several times went close to completing a comeback and earning what would have felt like a big point.

 Following a half-hour delay to kick-off following a medical emergency, it was Newcastle who were quickest out the blocks with a goal inside the opening five minutes.

 The Clarets didn’t properly clear a DeAndre Yedlin cross following a short corner, but the visitors still needed a large slice of luck to score only their four goal away from home this season.

 After Robbie Brady – starting only his second home game in a year as a replacement for the unwell Johann Berg Gudmundsson – had tackled Kenedy the ball dropped for central defender Federico Fernandez, whose curling shot was heading wide before Ben Mee deflected the ball inside the post when attempting to block.

We struggled again tonight, Rafa had us well and truly sussed.

We gave them far too much space especially out wide and our crossing was woeful, we gave the ball away far too often, we cannot seem to find our own men. Woods could have had a hat trick.

I am struggling to see when the next win will come. Danger ahead folks.
