Dyche delighted as Burnley comfortable victors over Wolves

Burnley are out of the bottom three with a crucial 2-1 win over Wolves.

Ashley Barnes nodded in at the back post to put the hosts ahead from Charlie Taylor's cross following a swift counter-attack in the first half.

Chris Wood then reacted quickest to thump in from close range and double Burnley's lead as Wolves failed to clear a free-kick after the break.

Teenager Fabio Silva fired in from the penalty spot for his first Wolves goal late on but the hosts were able to see out their victory.

Clarets boss Sean Dyche said, "I thought it was deserved. Generally over the last five or six games performances have been good, including tonight.

"We created some great chances and, hyper-critically, we could have had the game sealed earlier on. It is a very important result, the players have worked hard.

"Sometimes you have to change things and Ashley (Barnes) has been sharp in training. I believe stats start coming your way and they have. We have been creating chances."
