Burnley’s six-season stay in the Premier League has come to an end on the final day of the campaign as the Clarets lost 2-1 at home to Newcastle.

Leeds’ win at Brentford piled the pressure onto Mike Jackson’s charges and the home side simply failed to react to the challenge.

Neither side created much in a scrappy opening half before Callum Wilson punished Burnley from the spot after Nathan Collins’ handball.

But despite the high stakes, the home side failed to wake up after the restart, as Wilson popped up to double Newcastle’s advantage.

Maxwell Cornet’s volley did spark hopes of a fightback in the final stages but Wout Weghorst missed a crucial chance for a Premier League saving equaliser.

Full Time from Turf Moor it’s Burnley 1 Newcastle 2
