Striker Chris Wood was pleased to hit double figures for the season in Burnley's win over Cardiff.

The 27-year-old scored both in the 2-0 victory against the Bluebirds on Saturday, taking him to 11 in the Premier League this season and one ahead of Ashley Barnes at the top of the Clarets' goalscoring charts.

Two in the Europa League mean the New Zealand captain has 13 in all competitions with four games of the campaign remaining, starting at Chelsea on Easter Monday.

"Reaching 10 in the league is fantastic, another little milestone for myself," said Wood.

"Having two strikers around the double figures mark is fantastic for the club. It's put us in a good position.

"It's nice that we keep ticking over together and keep scoring goals.

"They were both three yards out on Saturday, which is nice. It's nice getting those tap ins.

"Cardiff came and basically needed to win. They didn't want to get opened up too early.

"So it was good for us to get the early goal, we could have had a few more by half time but that's the way it goes."

Three wins on the spin have moved the Clarets 11 points clear of the drop zone, the victory over Cardiff all but assuring that Turf Moor will be hosting top flight football again next season.

Wood insists there will be no let up from Sean Dyche's side however with a tough run in on paper coming up over the next few weeks.

After the trip to Stamford Bridge, Burnley have home games against Manchester City, the Clarets potentially having a say in where the title ends up, and Arsenal either side of a trip to Everton.

"We've had a good few weeks and it's nice to get three wins on the bounce," said Wood, also on target in the win at Bournemouth.

"It shows the character of everyone around the club, that's the players, the staff and everyone really.

"It's brilliant to bounce back so well.

"We're almost there now in terms of being safe but not quite.

"When we are mathematically safe then yes, we can relax and enjoy the rest of the season.

"Then we can play with a bit more freedom but until then we've got to focus."

When the job is officially done Wood insists it will be a good achievement for the Clarets to preserve their top flight status despite finishing seventh and reaching the Europa League last time around.

"This club has built very well over the last four or five years," he said.

"After relegation the group stuck together and came back up again.

"The gaffer brings in the right players, the right characters who seem to add to the squad."
