Wood tribute to Burnley keeper Pope after Golden Gloves achievement

Burnley striker Chris Wood paid tribute to goalkeeper Nick Pope after their 2-0 win at Norwich City.

The result means Pope will be guaranteed at least a share of the league's golden glove.

“As a team we will be fighting like hell for him," said Wood.

“He's an outstanding keeper and in my opinion the best in the country.

“And it shows. He's got 15 clean sheets for the season, which is unbelievable, especially in a team like Burnley.

“Hopefully we can get one more for him to get at least a share of the golden glove, if not win it completely."
