Having only made it into the Burnley team due to Tom Heaton's shoulder injury earlier this season, Pope has held onto his position even with the club captain back fit, and his performances earned him a maiden worldwide call-up for recent friendlies against Netherlands and Italy, where he was an unused sub.

Burnley are now red-hot favourites to claim seventh spot in the Premier League after beating their nearest rivals Leicester 2-1 at Turf Moor to open up a nine-point gap with only five games left.

Wood had scored at Turf Moor for Leicester four years ago with a goal that helped the Foxes clinch the Championship title ahead of Burnley. "We're in very good shape".

Wes Morgan's sloppy play allowed Ashley Barnes to play in Wood, who beat Kasper Schmeichel at the second attempt, and three minutes later it was 2-0 as Long headed in Johann Berg Gudmundsson's corner for his first league goal for Burnley. Burnley, though, just about did enough to see the game through.

Burnley can take a big step towards qualifying for next season's Europa League when they host Leicester this afternoon.

Referee Martin Atkinson waved away appeals for a penalty when Jack Cork appeared to handle the ball, with replays suggesting the Burnley man was just outside the box, while at the other end a wild challenge from substitute Kelechi Iheanacho on Aaron Lennon right on the edge of the area also went unpunished.

Wood said: "I had a great time there, I think it's a great club".

"They have been consistent in their play". "Of course there are games remaining but they [Burnley] now have a lot of chances". There were a lot of battles in the beginning of the match. "It's very hard to get five wins on the trot so I'm very pleased overall". "It was close but after the two goals it was surprising", he added. For us, it is important to finish well because it was a good journey.
