Wolves 2-0 Burnley
Wolves kept alive their faint hopes of a play-off spot with an uninspiring victory against Burnley at Molineux.

Lee Naylor forced a fine save from Brian Jensen with a first-half free-kick before Gary Cahill cleared a Jody Craddock header off the goalline.

Kenny Miller broke the deadlock by controlling Paul Ince's pass and firing the ball past Clarets' keeper Jensen.

Paul Ince drilled in a fierce 25-yard shot to seal the points before John McGreal was dismissed for two bookings.

  • Wolves boss Glenn Hoddle:
    "We must be doing something right because teams are coming here with five men in midfield.

    "Teams are guarded and waiting for our fans to turn on us - but we got the breakthrough before anxiety crept in.

    "The results have gone well but I still have sleepless nights thinking of the points we deserved to take but didn't."

  • Burnley boss Steve Cotterill:
    "We looked what we are - tired and leg-weary and we just didn't have enough.

    "There were some strange decisions but Wolves were not to blame - they were the better team and deserved to win.

    "It was difficult to stop Wolves because they are a quality team - but I didn't think John McGreal deserved to be sent off late on."
