EPL: Burnley stun Southampton to boost survival hopes

hopefull! Burnley boosted their chances of avoiding the ax by winning 2-0 at home to Southampton on Thursday night.

It was Burnley’s fifth win this season thanks to goals from Conor Roberts and Nathan Collins to move one point from safety, although 17th-placed Everton played one game less.

U23 coach Mike Jackson was leading the club as interim coach after Sean Dyche was shown at the door last Friday. He has now scored four points in two matches after drawing 1-1 with West Ham, in his first game.

Southampton, ranked 13th, have won just three of their 16 away matches this season.
