Clarets secure vital win to mark manager's 300th game.  Just like he did in his first game as Burnley boss, Sean Dyche master-minded a 2-0 win over Wolves.

 There have been numerous high points in between that day in November, 2012 and his 300th game in charge.

 But the importance of this result will rank fairly highly on his list of achievements as Dyche’s side ended a run of four successive Premier League losses with a victory that lifted them five points clear of the relegation places and earned valuable breathing space in the relegation scrap.

 It wasn’t a classic performance as Burnley battened down the hatches in the second half as they sought to protect the early lead given them by Conor Coady’s own-goal.

 But once again just when it was needed the Clarets passed a major test of character as they held their nerve to repel the FA Cup semi-finalists with only a second clean sheet in the league since the turn of the year.

 And then just to cap a superb defensive performance and bring some symmetry to the occasion, man-of-the-moment Dwight McNeil added a classy second goal to secure the victory that brings safety a step closer and make it a happy anniversary for the manager.

 In a game of such magnitude, the Clarets couldn’t have asked for a better start.

Just seen the highlights as I was at my sons game this morning. What a stunning finish from Dwight! Great 3 points!

I would dearly love to nick a point at Bournemouth and then stuff Cardiff to get the job done.

Just watched the highlights on Sky, looked like Wolves had a lot of possession without really threatening the goal. The first goal was a little lucky but hey ho you make your own luck, the second was magnificent, nothing spectacular but terrific all the same.

We blow hot and cold it seems to me but it goes to show that one or 2 players of real quality can make all the difference to a side which holds it's shape, nerve and has an undeniable work ethic along with an admirable togetherness. Very well done and deserved.
