Burnley earned three valuable points with a 1-0 win over Stoke City.
George Boyd produced the only goal of the match with a second-half strike that could prove crucial in preserving the Clarets' Premier League status.
The first half remained goalless at Turf Moor, Charlie Adam forcing a save from Tom Heaton after meeting Marko Arnautovic's inviting cross.
The home side took the lead when Boyd found the right-hand corner of the net with a left-footed shot.
Burnley climb up three places in the table to 12th place, eight points clear of the relegation zone, while Stoke are a point better off in 11th.
