Premier League - Brighton & Hove Albion v Burnley

Clarets rise from bottom three to 15th after striker's brace helps beat Brighton 3-1 at Amex Stadium

Burnley extended their unbeaten run to seven matches with a 3-1 victory at Brighton & Hove Albion.

Tom Heaton produced several first-half saves for Burnley, including a fantastic one-handed stop from Solly March on 24 minutes. 

Burnley took the lead two minutes later, Chris Wood latching on to Ashley Barnes' through-ball to slot past Mat Ryan.  

Brighton almost levelled before half-time but Shane Duffy's header was cleared off the line by Jeff Hendrick. 

Wood scored his second just after the hour before Ashley Barnes made it 3-0 from the penalty spot. 

Duffy's headed goal with 14 minutes left could not stop Albion's winless run extending to six matches.

Burnley's biggest away win this season lifts them third from bottom when the match started to 15th with 27 points, a place below Brighton on goal difference.
