GOALKEEPER Tom Heaton hopes the win over Wolves has set up Burnley’s survival bid.

The Clarets prevailed 2-0 at Turf Moor and ended the weekend five points clear of the Premier League’s bottom three after Cardiff’s defeat at home to Chelsea.

The pressure was on heading into Saturday’s game but Sean Dyche’s men got back to winning ways to ease their relegation worries somewhat.

“I think it was a tough scenario coming in to it with us being dragged in to a relegation area on the back of four defeats,” Heaton said.

“We’ve been on a tough run, there’s no getting away from it.

“We’ve put in some decent performances but there’s been a lot of noise coming from the outside.

“You try to shut it out but it’s difficult. People are talking about the possibility of relegation and the tough run in.

“We needed that good performance, that sort of attitude.

“If it hadn’t have gone our way, we’d have dusted ourselves off and gone again on Monday morning - that’s just how we are.

“It’s good to go and get a clean sheet and a win on the board though and hopefully we can take that forward into the last six games.”

The England shot-stopper was impressed with what he saw in front of him, Conor Coady’s early own goal and a late Dwight McNeil strike seeing the home side prevail.

But Burnley had to battle and Heaton was delighted with how the Clarets stood up to the challenge posed by a Wolves side who are seventh on their return to the top flight.

“There were some big performances out there today from back to front,” he said.

“I thought Charlie Taylor was immense at left-back dealing with the pace of Adama Traore.

“Ben Mee and James Tarkowski were superb again and they came up with some match-winning blocks - one each for them two that I can think of.

“Phil Bardsley won headers at the back post too but I think you can go beyond the defence.

“Dwight, Jack Cork and Ashley Westwood - the shift they put in there was massive.

“Jeff Hendrick too, he covered a lot ground. I could go through every player. It was a dogged second half against a team who plays some good stuff, it wasn’t easy.”
