FULL-TIME

Burnley 0-1 Leicester

Leicester's next match, on Wednesday, is at home to leaders Chelsea. A tough one, but why shouldn't they be confident after four successive wins?

Burnley, I'm afraid, look doomed. Three of their four remaining games are away from home, and they are now five points from safety.

I'm off to write the full report on this game now - that will be up on the site shortly. In the meantime,

you can follow all the post-match reaction from Turf Moor on our main live text.

Thanks for joining me.

Post-match reaction

Burnley 0-1 Leicester

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy: "Our confidence has been high all season. We've just not been getting the results. We've got the win today, and we'll have to take that into Wednesday."

FULL-TIME

Burnley 0-1 Leicester

There's a fist pump at full-time from Leicester boss Nigel Pearson, and no wonder. Leicester, seven points adrift of safety at the start of April, have won four top-flight games in a row for the first time since 1966, and are out of the bottom three. Incredible.

"It was all going so well for Burnley but they missed that penalty and Leicester went straight down the other end and scored, that's how cruel football can be."

Alan Green

"There'll be no consolation for Matty Taylor tonight, and no consolation for Burnley. Their struggle looks an uphill one. Leicester will surely be safe soon."

Burnley captain Jason Shackell stumbles under pressure from Robert Huth as the ball is played in. But referee Anthony Taylor gives nothing. That may be it.

Elsewhere, Hull have just gone 2-0 up at Crystal Palace. QPR's game against West Ham has ended 0-0.

Burnley keeper Tom Heaton has kept Burnley in the game for a few more moments. Leicester break, and Andrej Kramaric sets up fellow substitute Matt James to finish the game - but Heaton gets down to his right to push the ball away.

Five minutes of added time. Still hope for Burnley. Still work for Leicester.

Burnley 0-1 Leicester

Leicester are doing most of the defending now, yet look dangerous as they try to nick a second on the break. Goalscorer Jamie Vardy gets away down the left, but his shot from just inside the area is held easily by Tom Heaton.

One final Burnley substitution. Matty Taylor, whose afternoon slipped down the plughole the moment he missed that penalty just before the hour mark, is replaced by Michael Kightly.

Straight away, Danny Ings gets away down the left to cross, but Ross Wallace can only stab his shot into the ground, and it's a comfortable save by Kasper Schmeichel.

GREAT SAVE!

Burnley 0-1 Leicester

Fine margins, fine margins. Burnley full-back Ben Mee whacks a low ball across goal, and Robert Huth almost turns it into his own net. Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel reacts instinctively to pat the ball away. The visitors survive.

Burnley 0-1 Leicester

Last 10 minutes. A few Burnley fans are heading for the exits. Their team haven't scored since 14 March. Where's the inspiration coming from?

Around the grounds

Stoke 1-1 Sunderland

Right, this is how things stand in the other matches at the bottom. Leicester are set to climb out of the bottom three, with Sunderland dropping into the relegation zone as they are being held 1-1 at Stoke. QPR, next to bottom, are drawing 0-0 at home to West Ham, having seen a first-half penalty opportunity slip away as Charlie Austin's spot-kick was saved. Hull are 1-0 up at Crystal Palace. Defeat for Burnley would mean they stay bottom.

Burnley 0-1 Leicester

Early unofficial timings, by the way, suggest there were 59 seconds between Matty Taylor missing a penalty for Burnley and Jamie Vardy giving Leicester the lead. We'll endeavour to go back through the footage with a stopwatch when things have calmed down a bit.

Burnley 0-1 Leicester

Ross Wallace, Burnley's saviour at the King Power Stadium in October, has a free-kick, 25 yards out. But there's no repeat of his effort earlier in the season, as he hits the ball tamely into the Leicester wall.

Andrew from Richhill: Those are the kind of moments in a Premier League season that decide who stays up and who gets relegated. Burnley miss a penalty to take a crucial lead at one end and then concede straight away at the other. Huge moment.

Ross, a Watford fan: If I was bottom six, I'd be worried about going down to the Championship, such an unpredictable and tight league, I can't see many Premier League teams coming back up with ease!

Burnley 0-1 Leicester

Times journalist Rory Smith at Turf Moor: No more than a minute between Matt Taylor missing a penalty and Jamie Vardy scoring for Leicester. The sort of minute that defines a season.

SUBSTITUTION

Burnley 0-1 Leicester

A double change for Burnley. George Boyd and Lukas Jutkiewicz are off, and Marvin Sordell and Ross Wallace are coming on. Now, when Leicester and Burnley met at the King Power Stadium in October, Wallace scored a 96th-minute equaliser for the Clarets in a 2-2 draw. What chance a repeat here?

Meanwhile, Leicester have brought on the more defensively-minded Ritchie De Laet for Marc Albrighton. Nigel Perason has gone to a back five, and I suspect will be very happy with a 1-0 scoreline.

Burnley 0-1 Leicester

Matty Taylor, who missed that Burnley penalty, has never been relegated from the Premier League in a career that has taken in spells at Portsmouth, Bolton and West Ham. I fear that record may be soon to end.

"Football never ceases to amaze, you see it so often. Burnley were still wondering how they missed the penalty and didn't sort themselves out and Leicester were on the attack. Duff just nicked it but it is Leicester who have gone ahead."

Haaave you met Will?: Burnley. That's your sign that time's up

Ed Reynolds: Two missed penalties by relegation bound teams! If you can't score from 12 yards there's not much hope is there!

Sho: QPR and Burnley have had lady luck smile on them. But both too poor to take advantage.

Burnley 0-1 Leicester

I've had a look at three or four replays of that goal, and I'm crediting it to Jamie Vardy. Michael Duff's attempted clearance did not cross the line - Tom Heaton had actually kept it out. It's Vardy's fourth of the season, and his third in five games.

And, as it stands, it will take Leicester out of the bottom three.

GOAL

Burnley 0-1 Leicester - Jamie Vardy

To quote the late, great Peter Cook: "Football is, is, she's a cruel mistress. She's, she's more than a mistress. She's a wife, she's a mother, she's a daughter, she's an errant child."

Fresh from their penalty let-off, Leicester head to the other end. Marc Albrighton crosses from the right, Michael Duff tries to intercept, but knees towards his own goal. It's going in - but Tom Heaton claws it out, only for the ball to go in off Jamie Vardy's knee.

MISSED PENALTY

Burnley 0-0 Leicester

Matty Taylor, making his first start since August after recovering from heel and Achilles surgery, steps up to take the spot-kick. He sends Schmichel the wrong way - but hits the post! Extraordinary. And then, within seconds...

PENALTY

Burnley 0-0 Leicester

Right on cue, Burnley step up their game. Danny Ings creates space to fire in a shot that Kasper Schmeichel pushes aside. Then Matty Taylor is tripped by Paul Konchesky. Penalty!

Burnley 0-0 Leicester

Here's one: "When I was a child, my parents locked me in a cupboard, and forced me to learn English by listening to old pop records. It wasn't much fun... but if I had to do the same again, I would... my friend... Fernando."

There could be chances, Jermaine. I hope there are at some point, or I shall have to start regaling you with my repertoire of old Milton Jones gags.

Jermaine Jenas

Former England midfielder on Final Score

"You've got teams fighting for their lives and you want to see goals. You'd think there might be tentative games today but the Burnley game is quite frantic and there could be chances there."

Jimmy Armfield

BBC Radio 5 live

"In the last six matches Hull haven't won at all so it would be a real plus for them if they can get through that one. There's still quite a bit to go, plenty of fresh air between now and the end of the season, so no one should panic just yet.

"For the team's that come up it's always the hardest for them to stop up and that seems to be the case again this season."

Crystal Palace 0-1 Hull

A big goal at Selhurst Park. Dame N'Doye has given Hull the lead as they battle to stay clear of the bottom three. Elsewhere, it's still 1-1 between Stoke and Sunderland, and goalless between QPR and West Ham. Both Leicester and Burnley need a winner here.

"We've had five minutes of the second half, and some fans are still returning to their seats. But then the pies here are very good."

Seconded, Alan. Seconded.

Burnley 0-0 Leicester

Kieran Trippier
PA

Burnley's chief threat today is coming from corners. Michael Duff gets a header to Kieran Trippier's delivery, and Leonardo Ulloa, back defending for Leicester, does well to divert it away.

Burnley 0-0 Leicester

Early Leicester pressure in the second half. Robert Huth, in an attacking capacity, goes down rather easily under George Boyd's challenge just outside the penalty area. Esteban Cambiasso's free-kick drifts over the bar, and into the Cricket Field Stand. "Somewhat lazily struck," opines Alan Green, commentating for tonight's Match of the Day.

"It was a very tentative and cautious half from both teams who were lacking ideas up front. Both managers will be at least content that their defence's have stood firm."
