Text size Aa Aa

Oct 30 (Reuters) – A 74th minute strike from Irish midfielder Jeff Hendrick gave Burnley a 1-0 win over Newcastle United on Monday to send the Lancashire club up to seventh in the Premier League table. In a game of few chances or incidents, the Clarets grabbed the points when a low shot from the impressive Jack Cork was parried by Newcastle keeper Rob Elliot and Johann Berg Gudmundsson pounced on the loose ball, swinging a low cross to the back post where Hendrick collected and converted. Newcastle twice went close in added time with a shot by Isaac Hayden saved by Nick Pope and then a Javier Manquillo header that flashed just over the bar. After 10 games Sean Dyche’s Burnley side are now in seventh place and level on 16 points with Liverpool.
