Premier League: All Whites striker Chris Wood scores as Burnley ease clear of relegation

All Whites striker Chris Wood and his Burnley club have avoided Premier League relegation, after their 2-0 win over Fulham consigned the Londoners to the Championship next season.

Wood and Ashley Westwood provided the scoring at Craven Cottage, with the Kiwi netting his 50th goal for Burnley, including 12 this season, along with assists on three others.

Wood’s contribution to Burnley's Premier League survival has been key, accounting for more than 36 percent of his side's goals, but he credits manager Sean Dyche for their achievement.

"He just shouts at us, that's all he does," Wood jokes with Sky Sports' Monday Night Football. "He doesn't really try to coach us, [he] just makes sure we work hard.

"He's obviously tried and tested in the Premier League. He's a manager that's lasted X amount of games, the [Premier League's] longest serving manager, so he shows a bit there, which is great, and the boys follow it."

The defeat left Fulham in 18th spot on 27 points - 10 behind Southampton with three games left to play - while Burnley rose from 17th to 14th on 39 points.

Burnley went ahead in the 35th minute, when Matej Vydra pulled the ball back for Westwood to steer home. They were soon two up, thanks to Wood, who rifled Josh Brownhill's return pass into the top right corner a minute before halftime.

Despite plenty of possession, Fulham failed to create many decent scoring chances, and will join West Bromwich Albion and bottom side Sheffield United in the next tier down.
