First Burnley change
Jay Rodriguez comes on for Vydra, who has done well again up front with Wood
Two more Wolves changes
Gibbs-White and Vitinha on for Podence and Neves
Lowton has a daisy-cutter turned round the post. Wanted it more in the tackle
Fabio Silva is on for Nelson Semedo for Wolves
Or is it...
Vydra is ruled offside after viewing VAR
Vydra goes clear and sits Patricio down before slotting in, brilliant
Bit of history
In good company...

HT: Wolves 0, Chris Wood 3
Burnley totally dominant, and on target to nine points clear of the drop zone with 15 to play for. Wood again unplayable
McNeil’s corner is simply nodded in by Wood, for his hat-trick goal, as he hits double figures for a fourth-successive season with Burnley
Easy for Pope
Neves’ free kick is meat and drink for Pope
Traore was eventually booked for his part in the melee, and Lowton joins him for a foul moments later
Melee in the box
Podence takes flight in the Burnley area and stays down, Tarkowski is annoyed and tries to pick him up, and after an unsightly melee, Traore strikes Cork in the face. Somehow, Tarkowski is the only man penalised with a yellow. Traore survives a VAR check
