Another happy Burnley away day ruins Howe's birthday


Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe’s 40th birthday was ruined at Dean Court on Wednesday as Burnley continued their giddy Premier League ride with a 2-1 victory that took them to sixth in the table.

New Zealander Chris Wood struck in the 37th minute for Sean Dyche’s high-flyers, slotting home a deflected cross before Robbie Brady’s thumping right-foot shot midway through the second half doubled the lead.

Josh King, with only his second league goal of the season, ensured a nervy finish for the visitors.

Yet Burnley held firm to secure a fourth away win of the season, which represented their best return in a top-flight campaign since 1974-75 and lifted the Clarets above Tottenham Hotspur in the table.
