    Two late changes for Newcastle.

    Sean Longstaff's night is over but he won't forget this in a hurry. He's replaced by Mohamed Diame. Joselu is also on for Ayoze Perez.

  8. Post update

    Pinball inside the Newcastle penalty area.

    An almighty scramble, desperate defending and finally skipper Jamaal Lascelles hoofs it clear.

  9. Post update

    Newcastle 2-0 Burnley

    Matt Ritchie is getting a mouthful from team-mate Martin Dubravka after a poor back-pass forces the keeper to slice the ball out of play.

    I'm sure they'll kiss and make up in the dressing room.

  10. SUBSTITUTION

    A last roll of the dice by Sean Dyche.

    Matej Vydra is on for Chris Wood.

  11. SUBSTITUTION

    A well deserved standing ovation for Miguel Almiron as he makes way for Paul Dummett.

    Newcastle fans have really taken Almiron to their hearts and he's responded with another superb shift.

    Newcastle 2-0 Burnley

    The last English manager to beat Rafa Benitez in a Premier League game was Sam Allardyce with Everton in April 2018.

    The Spaniard is just over 10 minutes from another victory.

  13. Post update

    Newcastle 2-0 Burnley

    You don't always hear the away fans at St James' Park because they are so far away from the action but Burnley's fans are making themselves heard - belting out encouragement for their team.

    It's going to require something special for them to get anything from this.

  14. Post update

    Newcastle 2-0 Burnley

    Burnley have managed just one shot on target in this match so far - Chris Wood in the 27th minute.

  15. Post update

    Newcastle 2-0 Burnley

    There's not an awful lot going on.

    Burnley are running out of time and Peter Crouch has just come on for Ashley Barnes.

    The 38-year-old has 20 minutes or so to make an impact.

    No pressure, Crouchy.

    Aleksander: If I was a Newcastle fan I'd almost be frustrated about Almiron, it's the first time in many years they've bought a player of his calibre.

    Where could the club have been if Mike Ashley had spent more money and bought more good players like him in years gone by?

  17. Animated Benitez

    Newcastle 2-0 Burnley

    Gary Flintoff

    BBC Radio 5 live reporter at St James Park

    Considering his side is winning, Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez is very animated on this near touchline. He is clearly not happy with the way his side is playing. He keeps turning round to talk to his coaching staff sat on the bench whilst waving his arms around. I think only a third goal for Newcastle will settle him down.

  18. Post update

    Newcastle 2-0 Burnley

    Peter Crouch is warming up!

    The veteran has scored against Newcastle with four different clubs in the Premier League - Aston Villa, Liverpool, Southampton and Stoke City.

    Will he make it five with Burnley?

  19. 'Burnley have nothing to lose'

    Newcastle 2-0 Burnley

    Tony Pulis

    Middlesbrough manager on BBC Radio 5 Live

    Newcastle have won the ball back and then given it away quite easily a couple of times now, to give Burnley a head of steam.

    Burnley have nothing to lose now, and one goal completely changes the game.

    Jeff Hendrick and Salomon Rondon
  20. Post update

    Newcastle 2-0 Burnley

    Tom Heaton, dressed head to toe in yellow, comes darting out of his penalty area to hoof the ball into the crowd before Miguel Almiron can get there.

    The Burnley keeper is taking no chances.
