FULL-TIME: Burnley 2, Wolves 0

First published in Sport

SEAN Dyche celebrated a winning start to life as Burnley boss with a rare home win over Wolves.

The visit of Stale Solbakken's men offered a tough debut for the former Watford manager, who last week succeeded Eddie Howe at the Turf Moor helm.

Burnley had previously won only twice in 22 home league meetings with Wolves – a run stretching back to 1964.

But the Clarets put earlier encounters behind them with goals from Martin Paterson and top scorer Charlie Austin in either half, while the defence held firm under second half pressure to secure back-to-back home clean sheets.

Paterson put the home side on the front foot in the 17th minute with his first of the season after running onto Ben Mee's excellent ball and tucking it through the advancing Carl Ikeme.

There was little else of note in a tepid first half.

But the game sparked into life when Charlie Austin did, with the striker adding his 19th goal of the campaign so far with the simplest of headers from Ross Wallace's corner.

Wolves carried more of a threat in the second half, but Burnley, with David Edgar and Brian Stock providing an additional midfield buffer to the back four, contributed to keeping Wolves at bay.

3 posts, all mentioning BRFC. Infatuation of the enemy. Why is that? Whats the infatuation about? It's not even a few, it's every single one of you.

By the way, good result for the might clarets today. Since Wolves beat us and you beat them, that of course means you are a bigger club than Rovers after all. Well done.

Bumper crowd again I see aswell. Actually, to be honest I haven't got a clue what the attendance was but I'm guessing with this massive support you have was in the 10,000 region.

NNN you are absolutely bang on the money. Charlie is goal machine, which is why in 2 short months he will be out of that rat pit quicker than Eddie whatever he's called and Coyle, for about 5 mill.... which will go straight into keeping the club afloat, with about 50k for Dyche to spend. Ooooh the ambition.

Derby day soon and another chance for your club to fulfill a dream. If you hadn't noticed (I know you have because it's what makes your world go around) Rovers are fookin sh1t these days, so if you can't beat us now, you'll never beat us.......
