Burnley fans toasted a crucial win against a relegation rival like all of them – but managed to survive in the Premier League with the 2-0 home win.

Two goals from Chris Wood sealed what became a controversial victory after Cardiff had seen a penalty award, after a handball from Burnley's Ben Mee, toppled with the score at 1-0.

The win brought Burnley to 39 points and 11 points away from Cardiff with five remaining games.

The Cardiff side of Neil Warnock plays Tuesday night against the defeated semi-finalists of the FA Cup Brighton, who need a victory to give themselves some hope of survival.
