Ciaran Clark scored the winner as Newcastle came from behind to beat Bournemouth 2-1 at St James' Park.

Bournemouth took a 14th-minute lead when on-loan Liverpool winger Harry Wilson swept home after a clever short-corner routine.

However, Newcastle drew level three minutes before the break thanks to a flying header from DeAndre Yedlin, although only after a VAR check had confirmed the American right-back was just onside.

The home side claimed all three points, though, when Clark toe-poked home from close range seven minutes into the second half, the centre-back's 10th goal for Newcastle but his first that was not a header.

As a result, Newcastle. who were following up their 3-2 win at West Ham, move up to 11th in the Premier League after registering back-to-back league victories for the first time since April, while Bournemouth stay in seventh.

How Newcastle recorded back-to-back wins

Taking charge of his 916th game, Newcastle boss Steve Bruce was looking to record his first win as a manager over Bournemouth, although it did not start well for his side.

The visitors opened the scoring just before the quarter-hour mark after catching their opponents out with a well-worked short corner involving Ryan Fraser and Joshua King, before the former picked out the unmarked Harry Wilson in the box. The Wales international kept his cool to side-foot the ball into the bottom left-hand corner of the net.

But Newcastle responded in brilliant fashion to that early setback, firstly equalising just before the break when Yedlin somehow managed to get his head on to Allan Saint-Maximin's deflected cross.

Unsurprisingly, Newcastle were unchanged from the side that won 3-2 at West Ham last time out.

Meanwhile, Bournemouth made just the one alteration to the team that beat Man Utd 1-0 at home last Saturday lunchtime, with Lewis Cook replacing the suspended Jefferson Lerma in central midfield. Dan Gosling also took his place on the visitors' bench after recovering from a hip injury the midfielder picked up in pre-season.

The hosts turned the match on its head when, from a left-wing corner, Federico Fernandez rose highest to head the ball into the six-yard box for his fellow centre-back Clark to convert.

Bruce's side had several chances to further extend their lead, only for a combination of poor finishing and some outrageous bad luck - particularly when Miguel Almiron's goalbound shot hit Saint-Maximin on the ground - to make for an uncomfortable last few minutes.
