Newcastle and Burnley make their way from the changing rooms onto the pitch, Newcastle in their black and white stripes, Burnley in claret and blue.
Dwight Gayle gets the game underway.
Quiet start to the game, both sides still feeling their way into this.
Shot from distance by Jeff Hendrick is just wide of Hennessey’s right post.
Jay Rodriguez chests down the ball and volleys high above Woodman’s goal.
Ben Mee’s head from Dwight McNeil’s corner is just wide, referee blows for a foul.
