Burnley 1 Wolverhampton Wanderers 1

Chris Wood’s injury-time penalty kept the Clarets’ unbeaten home run going as Sean Dyche’s men refused to lie down.
A first Turf Moor defeat since New Year’s Day looked likely when Raul Jimenez scored with a superb 79th-minute volley to take Wolves closer to a European return.
But Burnley dug deep to keep alive their slim hopes of making it to Europe themselves with Wood keeping his cool to level from the spot following a handball from Matt Doherty as Sean Dyche’s battlers added another point to their collection and made it just one loss from 14 league games.
Six-and-a-half months after their last home defeat it looked as though the Clarets had finally run out of steam once Jimenez had scored his 27th goal of the season.
That cost Nick Pope a 15th clean sheet of the campaign on a night neither goalkeeper was over-extended.
But despite their struggle to make chances, the Clarets still found the resolved to get some reward.
And Wood deserved great credit for blotting from his mind a missed opportunity moments earlier as the top scorer claimed his first goal since lockdown to get Burnley within three points of their record Premier League tally with two games to go.
Unsurprisingly, the Clarets were unchanged from the side that started out at Liverpool where they became the first to take a point from Anfield this season.

The reality is they didn't get 2 goals which gave us a chance and that wasn't luck. Looking forward to normality cause this simply isn't. good results or otherwise.
