Burnley into Champions League places with win over Stoke

Jack Cork of Burnley and Darren Fletcher and Mame Biram Diouf of Stoke

Burnley climbed into fourth place in the Premier League as Ashley Barnes' late winner gave them victory over Stoke at Turf Moor.

The substitute pounced on a ricochet off team-mate Scott Arfield to fire home the only goal of the game with just two minutes left.

It was one of few clear-cut chances in a dour encounter, with Stoke's Peter Crouch hitting the post early on.

Sean Dyche's side climb into the Champions League places above Tottenham, Arsenal and Liverpool - who all play on Wednesday - while Stoke stay in 15th.
