Burnley promoted to the Premier League

Goals from Ashley Barnes and Michael Kightly sparked a Turf Moor promotion party as Burnley secured Premier League football for next season with a 2-0 win against Wigan.

The Clarets knew before kick-off that victory would see them bounce back into the top flight, having been outside the elite since their 2010 relegation.

And they were taking no chances, starting the game brightly with Barnes and Kightly handing the hosts a comfortable lead -- the latter with his second goal in as many games.

Wigan improved after the break but the outcome was never in doubt and Burnley's fans were left to celebrate, invading the pitch, as their team guaranteed a top-two finish.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche said: "It feels marvellous and feels like the destination at the end of a long journey: an impressive journey from a group of people who are totally motivated and committed to stand the test of what a season is.

"I was promoted four times as a player and I know what it feels likes and what it takes as a player but doing it as a manager is an incredible feeling.

"To guide a group of people, when I am still learning and developing, is a major achievement for me, the staff, the players and the club.

"When I came here, I made it clear that managers can only guide players to what they think is appropriate.

"Despite what people think, I don't scream and shout at them all the time. I talk to them about what I think is important for them as individuals and the team.

"If they realign then fantastic; if they don't we talk some more and if they don't then, they disappear out the building.

"I think what we have done is historic. The challenges of the Championship are getting harder and harder because clubs that get relegated are getting richer.

"So to do it automatically is the thing that is getting harder. To do it automatically, having amassed the points we have, with a low budget, and using 22 players is incredible. I don't think those markers will be hit again. I think it is a marker in history.''
