Burnley survived a second half onslaught from Wolves to record a 1-0 win at Molineux with Garreth O'Connor earning his side their first success at Molineux since 1986.

O'Connor's fine 22nd minute free kick gave Steve Cotterill's men their first away win since February but heaped frustration on Wolves counterpart Glenn Hoddle and a restless home crowd.

Wolves were left to rue a succession of missed chances. Carl Cort and Ki-Hyeon Seol tried and missed, the latter shooting wastefully wide after Brian Jensen had blocked Cort's drive.

Seconds later and Kenny Miller's cross narrowly eluded the outstretched boot of strike partner Cort.

It was a similar story in the second period when, on the hour, Seol crossed from the right, Miller leapt but missed and the ball rebounded off the unwitting Michael Duff into the grateful arms of Jensen.

A surging run from Rob Edwards was halted unceremoniously by Jensen before the tale of Wolves woe was encapsulated when first Miller's header struck the crossbar and then Lee Naylor's follow-up clipped the frame.

Burnley abandoned any attacking intentions of their own and sat deep but Wolves, not for the want of trying, could not find the breakthrough. The win sees Burnley move up to 13th, just a week after the East Lancashire outfit had occupied bottom spot in The Championship.
