MATCH of the Day pundit Alan Shearer hailed Burnley's twin strike force after the Clarets made it five wins in a row.

Chris Wood got the ball rolling in the 2-1 win against Leicester City, with his goal set up by Ashley Barnes, before Kevin Long made it two, and although Jamie Vardy pulled one back in the second half Burnley held on for a fight straight win.

"It's unbelievable," Shearer said of the season the Clarets are having and they extended their lead in seventh.

"It was the start that got them the three points. Two early goals. Wood and Barnes up front are causing problems and once they score one or two goals they're difficult to peg back because they don't concede many.

"This is lovely movement (from Wood) and a lovely turn and reverse pass (from Barnes) into Wood, he gets a little bit of luck, it bounces back to him, but it's a confident finish with his left foot. It was a superb pass and a good finish.

"This second goal) sums them up, wanting it more than most, Kevin Long with the header.

"Burnley are in seventh and they're going to finish sixth or seventh. They went 11 games without a league win and for them to still be in the position they're in, Sean Dyche has to be one of the managers of the season, if not the manager of the season."
