  • Burnley climbed two places out of the bottom three to 16th, as they made it one defeat in seven games
  • Ashley Barnes scores his first goal since last November to put the Clarets in front
  • Chris Wood hammers in a second for his third of the season
  • Fabio Silva pulls back a late penalty, but somehow Joao Moutinho avoids a red card for a stamp on Josh Brownhill in a nervier climax than it should have been
