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

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

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

Wood eyeing a hat-trick

Wood’s shot is comfortable for Patricio, after terrific interception from Brownhill

Wood’s nick sends Vydra down the left, and he charges on to the area, where Patricio stops him

Vydra just over from Taylor’s cross. Wolves can’t live with Burnley

Lost in the joy of going 2-0 up, but Wood now Burnley’s leading Premier League scorer outright with 43, two more than Barnes

Sloppy ball out picked off by McNeil, who feeds the ball across goal for a simple tap in from Wood, who gobbles up his ninth of the season
