  1. A big step closer to promotion

    FT: Burnley 1-0 Leeds

    Burnley celebrate

    So it's over to you, Middlesbrough, Brighton and Hull. Burnley have done their bit.

    Scott Arfield's first-minute goal was enough for them to grind out a win against Leeds, who have now picked up just one point from their last four games.

    How important will those three points be to Burnley in a few weeks' time? Time will tell, but a win can't hurt!

    Thanks for joining us for this one - all the best to you and whichever team you support this weekend.

    Don't forget to follow the rest of today's football action. We'll see you again soon.

  2. Reaction

    FT: Burnley 1-0 Leeds

    Burnley goalscorer Scott Arfield tells Sky Sports:

    "When you start so quickly and energised, you think you can go on, but they came here and made it difficult for us.

    "It was everything we knew it was going to be."

  3. Reaction

    FT: Burnley 1-0 Leeds

    Burnley defender Ben Mee tells Sky Sports: "Sometimes you have to grind results out.

    "We'll enjoy the weekend. We've got some massive games coming up, that we'll relish and enjoy."

  4. FT: Burnley 1-0 Leeds

    That's 18 games unbeaten in the league now for Burnley and 13 in all competitions. They weren't at their best today, but they've still won, and don't people say that's how you win titles?

  5. FULL-TIME

    Burnley 1-0 Leeds

    That's it! Burnley move four points clear at the top! It's a vital win for Sean Dyche's side.

  6. CLOSE!

    Burnley 1-0 Leeds

    What. A. Miss.

    Burnley's Ashley Barnes has shot wide from seven yards when the goal was gaping. Inexplicable stuff.

  7. Burnley 1-0 Leeds

    Leeds haven't given up yet - Chris Wood cushions a header towards Tom Adeyemi, but the substitute can't get to the ball before Burnley keeper Tom Heaton.

    The home fans have just two more minutes of nail-biting to do.

  8. Burnley 1-0 Leeds

    Lewis Cook tries a shot from range for Leeds but doesn't connect with it as well as he would have hoped and it angles over, into the stands.

  9. Burnley 1-0 Leeds

    We are into five minutes of stoppage time. Burnley want the whistle as soon as possible.

  10. SUBSTITUTION (Burnley)

    Burnley 1-0 Leeds

    Andre Gray goes off to warm applause and is replaced by the former scorer of wonder goals for Portsmouth, Matt Taylor.

  11. SUBSTITUTION (Leeds)

    Burnley 1-0 Leeds

    Stuart Dallas is replaced by Alex Mowatt for Leeds. Less than three minutes of normal time remain.

  12. Burnley 1-0 Leeds

    Back to serious matters - Burnley are five minutes plus stoppage time away from moving four points clear at the top of the Championship. Can they hold on? They're having a better spell at the moment, after a nervy half.

  13. SUBSTITUTION (Leeds)

    Burnley 1-0 Leeds

    Former Birmingham City and Cardiff midfielder Tom Adeyemi comes on for Leeds, in place of Toumani Diagouraga, which at least means it was worth me memorising how to spell the latter's name before today...but can it spell trouble for Burnley? (I'll get my coat).

  14. Elsewhere this lunchtime

    Burnley 1-0 Leeds

    Andy Carroll

    At half-time in this Championship game, we told you Arsenal were 2-0 up at West Ham in the lunchtime Premier League match...

    Since then, it's fair to say things have changed a little for another team playing in Claret and Blue.

  15. Burnley 1-0 Leeds

    Half chance for the hosts as a dangerous ball into the box bounces just too far in front of the two Burnley players who were in strong positions, unmarked. The deepest of the two, Scott Arfield, catches up with the ball eventually and then hits the side netting from a tight angle. Leeds survive.

  16. SUBSTITUTION (Burnley)

    Burnley 1-0 Leeds

    Dean Marney replaces David Jones for the hosts, who still hold a slender lead.

  17. Burnley 1-0 Leeds

    Burnley break well with Andre Gray but he takes a touch too far wide of goal and the angle becomes difficult, so Leeds are able to block his low shot and clear for a corner.

    The visitors also get the danger cleared from the resulting corner.

    Andre Gray
  18. SUBSTITUTION (Burnley)

    Burnley 1-0 Leeds

    Sam Vokes has to go off. Does he have an injury there? Possibly. That could be a worry for Burnley - and Wales. He trudges off, shaking his head but walking, at least.

    Ashley Barnes comes on in his place.

  19. CLOSE!

    Burnley 1-0 Leeds

    Chris Wood heads wide at the far post again. That's another big, big miss. Burnley fans breathe again...

  20. YELLOW CARD (Murphy)

    Burnley 1-0 Leeds

    Leeds' Luke Murphy is booked for a bad challenge on Joey Barton. That was a yellow, for sure.
