Superb performance brings three vital points in push for Premier League safety With impeccable timing, the Clarets produced one of their best away-days of the season to move eight points clear of the relegation places.

 Goals from the deadly duo of Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes – either side of a first goal from open play for the Clarets from Ashley Westwood – saw Burnley come from behind to secure a fourth win on the road this season.

 Sean Dyche’s side also became the first Burnley team to complete the double over the Cherries since the 1999/2000 season.

 But more importantly, they made it back-to-back victories to climb to 15th place in the table and put themselves within touching distance of Premier League safety.

 Eddie Howe’s side had been beaten just four times at the Vitality Stadium this season and not lost at home to any side outside the top six.

 But Bournemouth had no answer to a Burnley performance which over-powered them in every area with two goals in three first-half minutes setting up the fightback fittingly capped in the second half by Barnes – who scored at both ends but typified the desire not to finish on the losing side.
