Newcastle striker Wilson scored his third goal of the season against Brentford

Callum Wilson scored from the penalty spot as Newcastle United beat Brentford in a scrappy game at St James’ Park to ease the scrutiny on boss Eddie Howe.

Wilson converted after Brentford goalkeeper Mark Flekken fouled Newcastle winger Anthony Gordon.

Brentford’s best chance fell to Aaron Hickey early in the game but Nick Pope stood up well to save with his chest.
