May 19, (THEWILL)- Newcastle United held off a spirited second-half Brentford comeback to earn a 4-2 away victory, capping their English Premier League campaign with a fifth consecutive win over the Bees. The result cemented Newcastle’s seventh-place finish.

After Ivan Toney’s early strike was chalked off, the visitors surged ahead through Harvey Barnes and Jacob Murphy before Alexander Isak’s sublime finish handed them a commanding 3-0 lead at the break. Despite Vitaly Janelt and Yoane Wissa hauling Brentford back, Bruno Guimaraes’ late goal sealed the three points for Eddie Howe’s side.

The victory means Newcastle’s hopes of qualifying for Europe next season now hinge on Manchester City winning the FA Cup final. For Brentford, a 16th-place finish with 39 points represents a solid return in their second EPL campaign.
