Wood scored for the first time since his two goals against Cardiff City in April all but secured the Clarets' Premier League safety and last season. This time around they are in rude health with a 2-0 Turf Moor win over Norwich making it eight points from the opening six games.

It was nice to get on the score sheet and even better to get the three points," said the Clarets' frontman, who has now scored in his last four games against the Canaries.

It's been a little time coming but it's nice to be off the mark and rolling.

I backed myself that they would come. I knew that it was hopefully only a matter of time.

We just had to keep working hard as a team and thankfully they went in today.

You want to get off the mark but as a striker you know the next chance is around the corner so you can't get too dis-heartened or too down.

You've just to make sure you're ready for when they do fall so you can stick them in the back of the net.

It was nice to get two goals up for the team and we never looked like conceding after that."

Norwich fresh from beating champions Manchester City a week ago never really threatened the lead as Sean Dyche's men wrapped up a first win since the opening day with an accomplished display from back to front.

That's what comes of it if we are at our best we get the three points," said Wood.

That's what we try and strive to do every week and it's nice to put in a great performance and get the three points out of it.

We thrive on home games and try and work hard to get those wins. Thankfully we got another one today and now we can build on that and go forward.

We knew we had a good four games (between international breaks) to hopefully get some points on the board and we've started pretty well.

You can look it very happily, knowing that we can build on it and move forward and hopefully get some more results."

The Clarets boss celebrated becoming the fourth longest serving manager in the club's history with three deserved points, thanks to Chris Wood's early brace.

It was a great way to celebrate and I'm proud of that, but today the performance, not just the scoreline, was a good end to a good day," said Dyche.

We were very strong and I never thought the result was in doubt.

You always have that little edge when you are a manager because nothing is done until it's done, but generally the shape was good, defensively we were very solid and we pressed then well and opened them up enough to score more than two.

Everyone has their own style, but when we get our pressing right we are a force and it takes a cleverness.

You have to know when to press and when to come off your shape. It's a collective thing and I was really pleased with how they went about it today, that's for sure."

The Clarets boss celebrated becoming the fourth longest serving manager in the club's history with three deserved points, thanks to Chris Wood's early brace.

Wood struck twice in the 10th and 14th minutes, first with a near post header from a perfect Ashley Westwood corner and then with a smart near post flick to get on the end of Dwight McNeil's delicious cross.

For the set piece I was pleased with my staff because there are certain things they work on and they deserve a lot of credit for that," explained Dyche.

For the second, we know what a good young player Dwight is. He keeps developing all the time and he's got great feet and pulls a lovely ball back.

Woody is on the spot and it's a great bit of movement and a good finish because they are not easy.

My only gripe was that we didn't capitalise on so many counter-attacks in the second half, but they've shown me enough, yet again, that we are a force when we get things right."

Burnly won thanks to Chris Wood's early brace.

"The support in every game since I've been here has been amazing," he said. "We are really thankful, each and every player, even after a game like that they stayed behind us and tried to keep going. That's amazing and it's something special we have at this club. We will fight for them and I can only say thank you for the support in every minute of every game."

Leitner made a comeback from injury to feature at Turf Moor, replacing Alexander Tettey on the 12th minute, who had himself picked up a knock.

"As a player, you always want to come back after injury but it's not the most important thing," he said. "The most important thing is the club, and today we had a bad day. We have to show a reaction."

Leitner acknowledged that a slow start was to blame for the defeat.

"We knew exactly how Burnley would play. They had one plan which was to kick it high and be prepared for the fight. To be honest, in the first 15 minutes they were better than us and did well, so they deserved the lead.

"Teemu had a big chance and I had a shot on target. With a bit more luck, maybe we would have scored and been back in the game. We found some solutions in terms of creating chances, but now we have to analyse the game and keep going.

"It was the perfect start for Burnley. For us it was more of a shock to concede two goals very early in the game. That's always tough but we showed a good reaction and wanted to keep playing and to come back into the game. We made some mistakes, but we tried everything, and we will fight for the next game.

"You can take something positive from every game, but the dressing room was disappointed. We will analyse the game, talk about it and find solutions for the next game."

Farke says that his young squad can sometimes learn more from a loss, after they were defeated 2-0 by Burnley on Saturday.

I would prefer to learn all our lessons from wins if I'm honest," he said. I'm never happy with a loss, but sometimes you can learn a bit more than a great game like against Man City. This is what we have to face, this is the reality. We have unbelievably young lads who sometimes need to learn some lessons.

We have to grow a bit, otherwise all the other clubs would be playing with a group of young players. We have to stick with them. We can't punish them, just to make it clear that a reaction to come back into the game at 2-0 down is important. There were some positives to take, but we do have to speak about the first 15 minutes, that's for sure.

We should have been proactive instead of just reacting. We invited them to press us with and without the ball. This means that you sometimes cause unnecessary set-pieces.

The reaction to going 2-0 down was okay. We put them close to their own box, dominated the game and created many chances. We hit the post and Teemu had the first big chance. Nick Pope made a world-class save, but if we had taken the lead there then it would have been a completely different game. Burnley were able to use their first chance, but my feeling was that we should have started the first 15 minutes more on the front foot."

Drinkwater was left with ankle and facial injuries following an assault on a night out in Manchester on August 31.

It is not known whether the two incidents are related.

During the night at the Chinawhite club, Drinkwater is alleged to have attempted to chat up the girlfriend of Scunthorpe United footballer Kgosi Ntlhe.

New footage obtained by the Daily Star appears to show Drinkwater put Ntlhe in a headlock while on the dance floor of the venue.

There is no suggestion that Ntlhe was involved in the attack which followed outside of the nightclub and police were not called to the incident, which was not reported by Drinkwater.

During that attack, Drinkwater was reportedly attacked by six thugs who shouted 'break his legs'.

Norwich will still be riding high after beating City 3-2 last weekend, and Dyche hopes they get complacent at Turf Moor on Saturday.

Dyche said: "We've had those moments and I've had it as a player as well.

"It can be a strange thing because you wake up a few days later and the reality is suddenly the next game and all that euphoria and the great feeling of beating someone like Man City is gone.

"We'll have to wait and see. I'd like that to happen.

"It would be brilliant if they have a bit of a down day, but I think our job is to perform well enough that it makes them not play well."

The Canaries shook current champions Manchester City with a confidence-boosting 3-2 last time out at Carrow Road.

Cork said: All the teams that came up this season have looked quite sharp and lively and Norwich don't look out of place at all in the Premier League.

They have started really well, scoring goals and playing good football, so It'll be a really tough game."

The East Anglian outfit's star man so far has been Finnish striker Teemu Pukki.

Cork also told the club's website: He's obviously a great finisher. We've got to look to limit his chances and in the Premier League, you can't allow anyone time and space."
