Commentary

That is all from this Premier League fixture, until next time!
A win here for the hosts sees them climb out of the relegation zone and up to 16th. Next for Dyche's men, they face a trip to Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds United as they look to make it five without defeat. For the hosts, who disappointed for large parts of this game, they remain in 11th and will next host Tottenham.
Burnley make it four unbeaten as goals either side of half-time from Wood and Barnes leads them to a 2-1 victory. Substitute Benson did cause some unnecessary pressure at the end of the game, as his foul allowed Silva to pull one back from the spot but the Clarets stood firm in the closing minutes to secure the three points.
90' + 6' FULL-TIME: BURNLEY 2-1 WOLVES
90' + 6' Despite reaching the sixth minute of added time, play still goes on and the visitors earn a corner through Brownhill's headed clearance. Dyche's side then dominate in the air once more to head clear and that will surely be game over now.
90' + 5' WIDE! Traore goes inside on his left foot and crosses towards the back post, finding Saiss, who can only direct his left-footed volley wide to the right of Pope's goal. That is surely the final chance for Nuno's men in this game.
J. Rodriguez
Yellow Card
90' + 4' Rodriguez knows what he is doing as he cynically fouls Traore to stop a counter-attack and he rightfully becomes the third caution of the game.
90' + 3' Aged 18 years and 155 days old, Silva becomes Wolves' youngest Premier League scorer in their history with the penalty moments ago. Can the striker go on and find a late equaliser for the visitors?
90' + 2' Brownhill, who is guarding possession in the corner, goes down after Moutinho's tackle and wins a free-kick. However, VAR wants to have a quick check there was nothing more in the challenge as the Portuguese gets accused of stamping on Brownhill. Luckily for the Wolves midfielder, who has just returned from suspension, VAR sees nothing wrong with the tackle and allows play to resume.
90' The fourth official indicates there will be five minutes of added time but be under no illusion what Burnley's plan is from here on out as they head straight towards the corner flag with the ball.
Fábio Silva
Penalty Goal
89' GOALLLLL! 2-1! Pope dives the correct way to his right but Silva's penalty is too firm and nestles into the bottom corner to offer Wolves a late chance of getting back into this one.
88' PENALTY TO WOLVES! Benson's first involvement in the game sees him foul Silva, who looked like he was going nowhere under the pressure of Tarkowski inside the area. Referee Mason has no choice but to point to the spot, awarding the visitors a penalty for Benson's clumsy tackle.
J. Benson
D. McNeil
87' Youngster Benson is the man tasked with replacing the wonderful McNeil for the last few minutes.
87' For the second time in this half, McNeil is down on the floor holding his hamstring and this time, Burnley's medical team rush on to tend to him. It looks like that could be the end of McNeil's game here.
86' Podence ghosts inside and finds Semedo, who optimistically attempts to shoot with his left, only for three Burnley shirts to block the effort before it can trouble Pope.
84' A chance falls to Silva inside the area after Traore's cross to the front post but the youngster cannot wrap his foot around the ball and it goes well wide of Pope's goal.
83' The visitors have won just one of their last eight league meetings with the Clarets (D4 L3), winning 1-0 at home in the Premier League in September 2018. Barring some form of miracle here, their poor run against Dyche's men looks set to go on.
82' Barnes shows all of his experience to invite the foul off Vitinha and the substitute duly obliges, much to the delight of Barnes' colleagues and it looks like Dyche is going to make a change here.
J. Rodriguez
A. Barnes
82' Barnes, who was chosen to partner Wood up top this game, is replaced by Rodriguez for the closing stages of this fixture.
81' Dyche's men are content to sit deep and invite Wolves' onto them as just over ten minutes remain in this game. Semedo and Traore then attempt to combine down the right-hand side but the latter's pass towards Moutinho is poor and the hosts intercept.
79' CHANCE! Podence collects a loose ball on the right-hand side of the area, smartly chips the ball over the challenges of Taylor and Pieters and reaches the corner of the six-yard area. Unfortunately for the visitors, Podence then lashes a right-footed effort just over Pope's goal from close range, via a deflection off Brownhill.
78' Nuno's men keep working the ball out wide, where the visitors' wingers are greeted by two Burnley defenders every time. Saiss, however, manages to find some space before his cross towards Silva is headed away.
77' To make matters worse for the visitors, captain Coady appears to be hobbling about and to compound the issue, Neto has just produced a foul throw-in to gift the hosts possession back.
Vitinha
Rúben Neves
76' Neves, who nearly grabbed Wolves a goal moments ago, is replaced by Vitinha.
75' Podence gets round on the cover to dispossess McNeil before he can launch a counter-attack for the hosts. Traore's cross is then cleared by Mee and Wolves appeal for handball but referee Mason is having none of it, as he waves for play to go on.
73' SAVE! After playing numerous corners short, Moutinho finally crosses into the box, where Tarkowski heads clear. Neves, as he always does, is waiting on the edge of the area and volleys the clearance towards Pope's right. The Burnley goalkeeper then does well to scramble across and turn the Portuguese midfielder's effort around the post.
72' The visitors hold an extremely high line for Westwood's deep free-kick but Tarkowski still finds space to win the first header. This time, however, he cannot redirect his header back across goal and it trickles out for a goal-kick.
71' Neto whips in a teasing cross towards Silva, who is caught on his heels and fails to capitalise on the opportunity at the front post, which then allows Taylor to hook a clearance out of play.
70' Within the space of three minutes, the hosts' strikers have both had chances to add a third for the Clarets. In fact, Barnes (39) and Wood (37) have between them scored 32 per cent of Burnley's Premier League goals (241).
E. Pieters
R. Brady
69' Brady, who seems to be struggling with an injury, is replaced by Pieters, who marches straight over to the left-hand side to help Taylor defend against Traore.
68' Brady is afforded far too much space on the right, cutting on his left and crossing towards Barnes, whose volley from inside the area gets blocked by Coady before it can trouble Patricio.
67' Every time Traore gets in possession, McNeil and Taylor rush to double up on the Spaniard. On this occasion, Nuno's substitute reaches the byline before a deflected cross cannons back off of him and out for a goal-kick. That is great defending from Burnley's pair on the left-hand side there.
65' SAVE! Burnley catch Wolves napping once more, with Westwood playing a straightforward long ball to Wood inside the area. He fakes one way before shooting with his left foot but Patricio does well to save with his feet and Kilman then clears down the pitch.
63' Nuno's changes mean that Saiss has now moved more out to the left-hand side, with Kilman and Coady playing centrally in a regular four-man defence. This alteration means Traore has gone straight over to his familiar position the right and Silva slots straight in as the lone striker up top in the changed 4-2-3-1 formation.
62' Brady has numerous options inside the area but his final product is poor and fails to find Wood at the back post. Referee Mason is then called into action to calm the players down, after a coming together between Podence and Taylor.
61' OVER THE BAR! Traore is immediately involved, running rings around two Burnley players before crossing towards the back post. Neto meets the Spaniard's cross, but can only head just over the bar, with Pope left powerless from close range.
Fábio Silva
O. Otasowie
60' On his full Premier League debut, Otasowie, who was cautioned in the first 45, is substituted off for forward Silva.
Adama Traoré
R. Aït Nouri
60' Traore comes on for left wing-back Ait Nouri, which perhaps indicates a change of formation here for Wolves.
60' Moutinho and Semedo are on different wavelengths as the former smashes a pass out of play for a goal-kick and it looks like Nuno is going to make some changes to his team, who have disappointed so far.
59' Dyche's side have scored twice in a Premier League game at Turf Moor for the first time since February (3 v Bournemouth), netting as many in this game as in their first five home games this season combined (2).
58' Moutinho takes the resulting corner short to Neto, who then fires a wayward cross over every one in the area and Otasowie is forced to retrieve the ball and play backwards.
57' McNeil does his best to bring down Podence to stop Wolves' attack but fails to do so. Neves then crosses towards the back post and it gets deflected out for a corner to the visitors.
55' The warning signs were there for Wolves, before half-time they had failed to deal with the aerial challenge of Burnley's striker and then in the second half, nothing has changed and they deservedly are now 2-0 down. The Clarets continue to look assured in possession, this time Taylor and McNeil link-up down the left before losing the ball to Semedo.
53' The hosts have lost just one of their last six home league games against Wolves (W3 D2), with that coming in the first Premier League meeting between the sides at Turf Moor in March 2010 (1-2). It is hard to see the visitors scoring three from here to change that record.
C. Wood
Goal
51' GOALLLL! 2-0! Wood smashes home from inside the six-yard area, after Mee had redirected Westwood’s free-kick back towards the far post. Semedo at the back post could not deal with the presence of Barnes and Tarkowski and the ball ended up at the feet of Wood, who was never going to miss from close range to double Burnley's lead. VAR has a quick check for offside against Mee before confirming the goal stands.
50' OFF THE BAR! Brownhill goes running through the centre, reaching the edge of the D before curling a right-footed effort around Coady. Unfortunately for the hosts, the shot leaves Patricio standing but cannons off the bar and out for a goal-kick.
49' Patricio again for the second time in as many minutes, fails to command his area as he comes to punch a cross, which Coady is already attempting to head away. How many times can the goalkeeper appear flustered before the Clarets cotton onto the fact and start bombarding the area with crosses?
48' A bit of confusion between Saiss and Patricio sees the visitors concede a needless corner, which they then defend well to head clear. Nuno's side do not want to offer Burnley too many chances to cross into the box, however.
47' Westwood needs to be careful in the middle of the park, given that he is on a booking. This time, he just gets the tackle right as he slides in and dispossesses Podence, who theatrically goes over in the centre circle.
46' Both sets of players are back out at Turf Moor and referee Mason gets this Premier League fixture back underway!
Looking ahead to the next 45, Nuno is going to have to chase the game as Burnley sit deep and invite the visitors to attack. Off the bench, Wolves could look towards Traore or Silva to unlock the Clarets' defence. In contrast, Dyche will just be asking for more of the same from his men, who are deserved leaders at half-time in this game.
Following on from Burnley's usual pattern in Monday games, the hosts go in 1-0 up at half-time, courtesy of Barnes' headed finish on 35 minutes. The hosts have looked good value for their lead and could have scored more with a bit more composure from Wood and Barnes. The visitors have had a lot of the ball but have rarely troubled Pope so far, barring Neto's left-footed effort on the counter-attack.
45' + 2' HALF-TIME: BURNLEY 1-0 WOLVES
O. Otasowie
Yellow Card
45' + 1' Otasowie, on his full Premier League debut, receives the second booking of the game as he is far too enthusiastic and cynically fouls Westwood near the centre circle.
45' + 1' The fourth official holds up his board and suggests there will be at least two minutes of added time as Pope launches his goal-kick long to Brady, who brings the clearance down before playing backwards.
45' Saiss comes storming up from the back before thundering a left-footed strike straight into two Claret shirts. The visitors then manipulate possession out to Podence, who looks for Semedo at the back post but his pass is overhit and runs out for a goal-kick.
43' Mee and Otasowie get back to their feet, share a quick handshake and then return to the field of play, after their earlier clash of heads.
42' Burnley's opener was Barnes' first goal in 970 Premier League minutes. Dyche had asked for more from his strikers before the game and Barnes has duly responded as he looks to have sent his side in at half-time 1-0 up.
41' Mee and Otasowie go up in the air against one another and both end up on the floor. Referee Mason rushes over before waving both sets of medical staff on to treat to the players, who are, unsurprisingly, clutching their heads.
39' It is the Clarets' turn to have a free-kick in a good position, with Kilman carelessly giving a foul away outside the area. Brownhill and Brady stand over it before the former takes, whipping it just wide of Patricio's right-hand post.
37' Twice in a matter of minutes, Neves fires two right-footed efforts over the bar, first from the free-kick and then on the volley from outside of the area. Despite the Portuguese's prowess from range, both efforts do not trouble Pope.
A. Westwood
Yellow Card
36' Westwood gets booked for either his cynical foul on Otasowie outside the area or for instantly kicking the ball away after Mason's decision.
36' Otasowie looks to immediately respond for Wolves but his progress is stopped by Westwood, who fouls him outside of the area to offer Neves another free-kick in a good area.
C. Taylor
Assist
35' Taylor races around McNeil, reaching the byline and crossing with his left foot towards Barnes in the six-yard area.
A. Barnes
Goal
35' GOALLLL!! 1-0 BURNLEY! Barnes makes up for his missed chance by heading in at the back post. Initially, Taylor had done well to overlap McNeil, before reaching the byline and standing up a cross towards the striker at the far post. In terms of the finish, Barnes did excellently to sneak his header past Patricio from a tight angle and perhaps the goalkeeper will feel he should have saved it.
34' Westwood goes down just outside the area on the right and the referee rightly awards the hosts a free-kick, despite Neves waving his arms and suggesting he got the ball. McNeil takes but, frustratingly, does not beat the first defender inside the area.
32' Podence has a minute or so clutching his chest but insists on not requiring medical treatment. Play finally gets back underway with the visitors playing it around the back, before going long and losing possession. After a fairly assured start, Nuno's men have faded away in the last 15 minutes or so.
30' Westwood finds Brady in a pocket of space to the right side of Wolves' area, however, Ait Nouri does excellently on the recovery to tackle and knock the ball off of Brady for a goal-kick to the visitors.
28' CHANCE! Burnley go from back to front in one pass, with Pope releasing Barnes. The striker then runs onto the long pass before shooting at the feet of Patricio on the volley. That was a great chance for the Clarets to open the scoring, with Wolves' defence seemingly switching off, and Barnes will be frustrated with himself there.
27' The hosts attempt to press in numbers but Nuno's men play through the press with ease, before Semedo wastes the opportunity as he needlessly fouls Taylor on the left-hand side.
25' Two free-kicks come in quick succession, with the latter, a foul on Taylor, offering the Clarets a chance to launch a cross into the area. McNeil duly obliges but the visitors, led by Coady, stay strong to head away the danger.
24' SAVE! Neto goes flying as he leads Wolves' counter-attacking charge, eventually reaching the edge of the area, where he whips a left-footed shot towards the far post. However, it is going to take a lot more than that to beat Pope, who dives down to his right and saves with relative ease.
23' Mee had been struggling after his earlier sliding tackle on Semedo and, despite carrying on for the last ten minutes, decides he now needs some medical attention. The Burnley captain then quickly gets back to his feet and returns back to the pitch moments later.
21' Dyche cuts an animated figure on the touchline after a throw-in decision does not go his side's way. Nevertheless, the visitors get play back underway, with Podence orchestrating play down the left-hand side before Burnley defend well to clear long down the right.
19' Wolves crowd around Pope inside the area, with Neto taking the resulting corner short to Ait Nouri. The left wing-back then crosses towards the penalty spot, where Saiss heads high over the bar.
18' Otasowie ghosts past three Claret shirts before being brought down but referee Mason waves his hands and insists play goes on. The visitors then mainpulate possession out to the right, where Moutinho's cross is turned behind for a corner by captain Mee.
16' WIDE! McNeil fakes one way then the other before crossing towards Wood at the front post. Under the pressure of Saiss, Wood still manages to produce an acrobatic right-footed effort over his shoulder, which just bounces wide of Patricio's right-hand post.
14' Semedo finds acres of space after being played over the top of the Clarets' defence, Mee, however, then does incredibly well on the recovery to slide in and give away a corner. In fact, none of that will matter, as the assistant has got his flag up on the far side for offside against Semedo.
13' Semedo releases Neto down the right-hand side before the latter returns to the favour to his right-wing back, who races into the area. Unfortunately the visitors, Semedo's low right-footed cross is then poor and easy for Taylor to steer clear.
12' Wood looks to get physical with Saiss but ends up losing the battle as the centre-back does well to clear long. In the last few minutes or so though, the Clarets have settled into this game and the likes of Lowton and McNeil are starting to see more and more of the ball on either wing.
10' All five of Burnley's Premier League wins in Monday games have seen them keep a clean sheet, with their last four such victories being by a 1-0 scoreline. Dyche’s men will be hoping they can replicate that record here, despite Wolves' dominance in the opening stages.
9' Dyche's team stand firm in the wall to head away the free-kick before it can trouble Pope. The hosts then earn a bit of respite, after Wolves' quick start, with McNeil being fouled near the halfway line.
8' Otasowie is played in by Semedo's pass on the edge of the area before being fouled by Tarkowski. Perhaps the Clarets' centre-back is lucky to escape a booking there but it does offer Wolves a great chance 20 yards from goal.
7' Nuno's men take the resulting free-kick short, with Moutinho then crossing from left towards the back post. Fortunately the for the hosts, Wood is back to do his defensive duties and flicks a headed clearance out towards Burnley's left-hand side.
6' Ait Nouri dances round two tackles inside Burnley's area before his right-footed shot gets blocked by Tarkowski. The left wing-back then gets chopped down by Brady to win a free-kick for the visitors in a decent position near the left-hand touchline.
4' Another early tester for Patricio comes as Lowton stands a deep cross up towards the back post. The right-back's cross seems to take an age to come down but when it eventually does, Patricio collects, despite the presence of Barnes inside the six-yard area.
3' Lowton goes long in search of Barnes but Patricio is more than alert to the danger as he comes charging out to collect. Podence then unleashes Semedo down the right and the wing-back coasts past McNeil before getting dispossessed by Taylor near the byline.
2' The visitors start with authority, stroking the ball about comfortably before Taylor defends well against Neto in the box to avoid conceding a corner.
1' Referee Lee Mason blows his whistle to get this Premier League fixture underway!
The players are making their way out the tunnel at Turf Moor and shortly kick-off will be upon us.
Both Premier League meetings between these two sides last season ended 1-1, with the home side netting stoppage-time penalties in both games.
Nuno Espirito Santo makes four changes to his previous side, with Otasowie being handed his full Premier League debut. In the other changes, Moutinho returns from suspension, while on the left-hand side, both Ait-Nouri and Kilman come in for Marcal and Boly.
Dyche makes one alteration to his last starting eleven, with Barnes getting the nod ahead of Rodriguez to partner Wood up top. The industrious pairing of Brownhill and Westwood continue together and will be tasked with stifling Wolves’ numerical advantage in the middle.
SUBS: Marcal, Vitinha, Theo Corbeanu, Fabio Silva, John Ruddy, Taylor Perry, Adama Traore, Ki-Jana Hoever, Willy Boly.
WOLVES (3-5-2): Rui Patricio; Maximillian Kilman, Conor Coady, Romain Saiss; Rayan Ait Nouri, Ruben Neves, Owen Otasowie, Joao Moutinho, Nelson Semedo; Daniel Podence, Pedro Neto.
SUBS: Jay Rodriguez, Erik Pieters, Kevin Long, Josh Benson, Phil Bardsley, Jimmy Dunne, Dale Stephens, Will Norris, Bailey Peacock-Farrell.
BURNLEY (4-4-2): Nick Pope; Matthew Lowton, Ben Mee, James Tarkowski, Charlie Taylor; Robbie Brady, Ashley Westwood, Josh Brownhill, Dwight McNeil; Chris Wood, Ashley Barnes.
Last time out, Sean Dyche’s men rode their luck to earn a 0-0 draw at Villa Park. In contrast, the visitors left it late to defeat Chelsea 2-1, courtesy of Pedro Neto’s winner.
