Newcastle 2-1 AFC Bournemouth
Ciaran Clark scored his second goal in as many games as Newcastle defeated Bournemouth to record successive league wins for the first time this season.
It was a deserved victory for the Magpies who overcame a shaky first quarter of the match during which the Cherries took the lead through Harry Wilson.
The Welshman, on loan from Liverpool, finished off one of the set-piece moves of the season as Ryan Fraser and Joshua King played a one-two from a corner before the winger finished off the routine with a superb low shot.
It delighted Eddie Howe in the away dugout as his side produced their seventh league goal from a set-piece this season.
The Magpies went close when Allan Saint-Maximin’s fierce strike struck the bar before they equalized through DeAndre Yedlin, who anticipated brilliantly as he converted the Frenchman’s deflected strike with a flying header.
Clark completed the turnaround seven minutes after the break when he scuffed a shot past keeper Aaron Ramsdale.
The Magpies now have 15 points and move up to 11th, a point and four places behind the Cherries.
