Chris Wood and the Clarets again produced the goods when it mattered at Turf Moor by delivering three vital points to propel themselves back up the Premier League table.
Three successive defeats had sent Burnley into the bottom half and a little too close to the relegation scrap for comfort ahead of a crucial run of games up to the turn of the year.
But just when they need it, Sean Dyche’s men have a habit of coming good on their own turf and they did it again by stalling Newcastle’s revival with a fifth home win of the campaign.
All those wins have been achieved with the help of a clean sheet, with the latest even more welcome after the Clarets had conceded 11 goals during their losing run.
And another common dominator is Wood, who was once again in the right place at the right time to head the second-half winner to go with the goals he scored in victories over Norwich and West Ham as the Clarets provided the perfect response to their 5-0 mauling at Tottenhan a week ago.

Were you there Jilted?
No, as I said above, “from the highlights” which I watched on MotD, Sky and online, found some of Bruce’s comments ott and the match lacking in entertainment.
