Burnley 1-0 Crystal Palace: Clarets climb out of the relegation zone after early Chris Wood strike seals first win of the season

Hardly surprising that Ben Mee’s return has brought consecutive clean sheets for Burnley, who are showing signs of rediscovering the sort of bite and brawn that has kept them up here for so long.

How that was needed on Monday night. Looking at their run of fixtures from now until Christmas, anything but victory would have made for particularly grim reading, especially given the gap opening above the bottom four.

Sean Dyche’s side are still down there, and head to Manchester City this weekend, but the resilience shown against Crystal Palace offers hope for the near future.
