Garth Crooks says Newcastle United centre-back Federico Fernández won them the points against Bournemouth

Newcastle United secured their fourth Premier League victory of the campaign at the expense of Bournemouth on Saturday, coming from a goal down to run out 2-1 winners.

Harry Wilson put the Cherries ahead 14 minutes into the game, but DeAndre Yedlin drew the Magpies level with a flying header in the 42nd minute.

Ciaran Clark put Newcastle ahead seven minutes after play restarted, and the hosts held on to their lead to secure back-to-back league victories for the first time since April.

It is the first time Steve Bruce’s men have scored more than once in a home league game this season, and they head into the international break in 13th place in the table after picking up 15 points from their opening 12 games of the season.
