PL REPORT: Burnley 1 West Ham United 2

Wood’s landmark goal not enough to end winless home run as happy Hammers close in on Europe

The Hammers – whose seven away wins had equalled their previous best in a Premier League season – were always a threat on the counter-attack but Burnley were never out of the contest.

With just less than 20 minutes to go, Johann Berg Gudmundsson replaced McNeil and the Icelander had half a chance to find an equaliser with a volley beyond the far post which he was unable to steer on target.

And Dyche played his final card when Ashley Barnes came on for Wood - who had picked up a slight knock - to make his first appearance since mid-February.

There was to be no fairytale return for Barnes but with an almost fully-fit squad for the final four games, the Clarets will look to finally guarantee safety sooner rather than later.

Burnley: Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Brownhill, Westwood, Cork, McNeil (Gudmundsson 74); Wood (Barnes 85), Vydra (Rodriguez 62). Substitutes: Peacock-Farrell, Norris, Stephens, Pieters, Bardsley, Dunne.

Booked: Mee, Gudmundsson

West Ham: Fabianski; Coufal, Dawson, Diop, Cresswell; Soucek, Lanzini; Fornals, Lingard, Benrahma (Bowen 79); Antonio. Substitutes: Trott, Randolph, Balbuena, Alves, Fredericks, Johnson, Odubeko, Coventry.

Booked: Dawson

Referee: Anthony Taylor
