    First-half goals by Swiss defender and homegrown midfielder seal 2-0 win for Magpies

    First-half goals from Fabian Schar and Sean Longstaff earned a 2-0 victory for Newcastle United against Burnley at St James' Park.

    After Miguel Almiron shot wide early on, Schar unleashed an unstoppable strike which flew in off a post after 24 minutes.

    Seven minutes before half-time, Matt Ritchie's cross was half-cleared by Ben Mee and Academy graduate Longstaff lashed in his first Premier League goal.

    Salomon Rondon and Almiron both had chances to make the match safe for Newcastle, before a late header by substitute Peter Crouch was hoisted to safety by Jamaal Lascelles.

    Newcastle climb to 13th place, on 31 points, leapfrogging Burnley, whose eight-match unbeaten streak ends with them dropping to 15th place on 30 points.
