Wilson's penalty sees Newcastle beat Brentford

Callum Wilson’s second-half penalty secured a 1-0 victory for Newcastle against Brentford as Eddie Howe’s side bounced back from a three-game losing streak.

In a scrappy game at St James’ Park, Wilson converted his spot-kick emphatically after Brentford goalkeeper Mark Flekken had charged off his line and clumsily fouled Anthony Gordon.

Brentford, unbeaten in four games before the trip to the north-east, were unable to muster a response and also lost full-back Rico Henry to potentially serious knee injury in the first half.

For Newcastle, the narrow victory, following losses to Brighton, Liverpool and Manchester City, provides a timely boost ahead of their Champions League opener against AC Milan on Tuesday.
