Forward's 83rd-minute strike seals 2-1 win at Turf Moor after Harry Kane had equalised

Burnley dented Tottenham Hotspur's title hopes as Ashley Barnes' late goal earned a 2-1 victory at Turf Moor.

After a goalless first half dominated by Spurs, but with few chances, Chris Wood gave Burnley the lead 12 minutes after the restart.

The New Zealander headed in Dwight McNeil's corner for his fourth goal in the last four PL matches.

Spurs were level eight minutes later as Harry Kane, back from injury, raced on to Danny Rose's throw-in to slot in for his 15th goal of the season.

Barnes netted the winner seven minutes from time, converting Johann Berg Gudmundsson's ball across the six-yard area to score for the fourth match running.

The win lifts Burnley to 14th with 30 points, six above the relegation zone.

Spurs remain third on 60 points, five behind Manchester City and Liverpool.
