Burnley stays above EPL drop zone by beating Wolves
BURNLEY, England (AP) — Burnley boosted its hopes of avoiding relegation from the English Premier League by beating Wolves 2-0 on Saturday to end a run of four straight defeats.
Burnley still hovered just above the drop zone after its first top-flight win over Wolves since 1963.
Conor Coady’s third own goal of the season launched Burnely within two minutes, and teenager Dwight McNeil showed composure to fire into the bottom right corner and put the result beyond doubt in the 77th. It was one of Burnley’s few chances in the second half.
The win helped Sean Dyche celebrate his 300th match in charge of Burnley.
