Oct 30 (Reuters) - A 74th minute strike from Irish midfielder Jeff Hendrick gave Burnley a 1-0 win over Newcastle United on Monday to send the Lancashire club up to seventh in the Premier League table.

In a game of few chances or incidents, the Clarets grabbed the points when a low shot from the impressive Jack Cork was parried by Newcastle keeper Rob Elliot and Johann Berg Gudmundsson pounced on the loose ball, swinging a low cross to the back post where Hendrick collected and converted.

Newcastle twice went close in added time with a shot by Isaac Hayden saved by Nick Pope and then a Javier Manquillo header that flashed just over the bar.

After 10 games Sean Dyche’s Burnley side are now in seventh place and level on 16 points with Liverpool. (Reporting by Simon Evans; Editing by Ken Ferris)
