Newcastle United finally won their first game of the season, beating bottom-three rivals Burnley 1-0 at St James' Park in the Premier League on Saturday thanks to a 40th-minute goal from Callum Wilson.

Eddie Howe's side made a poor start to the game with the visitors well on top until an error by Burnley keeper Nick Pope gifted Newcastle the lead.

Pope came deep to collect a cross but under a challenge from Fabian Schar he dropped the ball and Wilson reacted superbly, driving into the unguarded goal with a shot on the turn.

Things got worse for Burnley when in-form forward Maxwell Cornet had to go off with an injury before the break and his replacement Matej Vydra missed a great chance to level for the Clarets.

Newcastle were the better side after the break with Miguel Almiron going close twice and Jonjo Shelvey forcing a good save out of Pope.

Burnley thought they had levelled through substitute Jay Rodriguez but the effort was ruled out for offside.

The two clubs remain in the relegation zone, both on 10 points, with Burnley in 18th place, above 19th-placed Newcastle on goal difference but with a game in hand.

Bottom club Norwich City, also on 10 points, face Tottenham on Sunday.
