Fulham 2-3 Burnley

Andre Gray

Andre Gray has scored the winning goal for Burnley in their last three games

Burnley moved four points clear at the top of the Championship after coming from behind to beat Fulham.

The Clarets led when Sam Vokes headed home a corner but Ross McCormack’s levelled it up.

Moussa Dembele converted a Luke Garbutt centre to put the hosts in front.

The visitors equalised when Vokes slotted home from the penalty spot after Joey Barton had been clipped in the area, before Andre Gray rifled home a great finish to give Burnley the win.

Burnley, who had not won at Fulham since 1980, stretched their lead at the top thanks to Middlesbrough’s surprise defeat at Rotherham.

The game pitted the Championship’s two highest scoring teams against one another and it took less than 10 minutes for Vokes to break the deadlock with his 11th goal of the season.

Struggling Fulham, who have now conceded a division-high 61 goals, turned the match on its head with two goals in five minutes from their front two but defensive frailties ultimately cost them once again.

Gray, signed for a fee of around £9m from Brentford in August, has now scored 20 Championship goals in 31 appearances for Sean Dyche’s side.
