The Clarets finished three points adrift of Leeds United, who beat nine-man Brentford with the last kick of the game to preserve their status in the top flight.

Burnley were downed by a Callum Wilson double; the first from the spot after Nathan Collins’ needless handball from a Kieran Trippier corner.

The striker then doubled the Magpies’ advantage when guiding Allan Saint-Maximin’s cross beyond Nick Pope from close range.

Leading scorer Maxwel Cornet thumped the ball past Martin Dubravka on the volley to give Mike Jackson’s men a lifeline.

They pressed for an equaliser, but substitute Wout Weghorst poked the ball wide from close range, Jack Cork’s header was cleared off the line and a corner header was saved by Dubravka.

Here are the player ratings.
