Tony Philliskirk’s side bounced back from a three-match win-less run, with a 1-0 victory over Leeds United.
Winger Chris Conn-Clarke’s 28th minute strike was the only difference between the two sides, on a crisp morning at United’s Thorp Arch training ground.
Burnley started the brighter side early on and came close, as Conn-Clarke saw a close range effort blocked.
Striker Joe McGlynn then saw an effort fizz just wide of the post, following a good attacking build-up.
But the dominant early start paid off, as the visitors took the lead.
The lively Rhys Fenlon broke down the right, before picking out the in-form Conn-Clarke, who saw his first strike saved, before slotting home the rebound.
United came close from a free-kick and a corner, but the Clarets defence did well to keep the home side at bay and go into the break with the lead, in particular Edon Pruti who put a couple of key blocks to deny opportunities on goal.
After an action-packed first half, it was a very much quieter second half.
Despite a couple of chances from Leeds, Conn-Clarke came close to striking again, as his free-kick sailed just wide of the post.
Midfielder Dylan Moonan made way just after the hour mark, after picking up a knock, which saw Sam Unwin introduced.
Although United had a few opportunities to draw level in the second half, Burnley held on for all three points at Leeds’ HQ.
BURNLEY: Calderbank-Park, Connolly, Rooney, Pruti, Rain, Woods, Moonan (Unwin 62), Conn-Clarke, Fenlon, McGlynn, George.
