  1. 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.

  2. 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."

  3. 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.

    Burnley 0-1 Leicester

    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.

  11. INJURY TIME

    Sean Dyche

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

  12. Post update

    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.

  13. Post update

    Burnley 0-1 Leicester

    Matty Taylor

    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.

  14. 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.

  15. Post update

    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?

  16. 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.

  17. Post update

    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.

  18. Post update

    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!

  20. Post update

    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.

  21. 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.

  22. Post update

    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.

  25. Post update

    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.

    Jamie Vardy scores for Leicester
  26. GOAL

    Burnley 0-1 Leicester - Jamie Vardy

    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.

  27. 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...

    Matty Taylor misses a penalty for Burnley
  28. PENALTY

    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!

    "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.

    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.

    Anyway, here's something to cheer Burnley's fans: On to the pitch at half-time come two members of the side who memorably escaped relegation to the Conference on the final day of the 1986-87 season - Neil Grewcock and Ian Britton.

    Relegation this season would be nowhere near as damaging as it would have been 28 years ago. On the evidence of the first half today, it's probably just as well.

    Well, Sunderland are still drawing 1-1 at Stoke, while Hull are level at 0-0 at Crystal Palace. Aston Villa's game at Manchester City is a 17:30 BST kick-off.

    Danny Ings is not a happy man. The Burnley striker, who has had no chance to impress, is barged over by Marcin Wasilewski, but Anthony Taylor deems it a fair challenge. Ings' response could be deciphered by any half-decent lip-reader, but cannot be repeated here.

    Burnley have a chance to break here after clearing an Esteban Cambiasso free-kick, but Scott Arfield gets tangled up with the ball just as he crosses halfway, and the Burnley roar is stifled.

    Leicester manager Nigel Pearson: "It's always about trying to get the best we have available. We picked up one or two knocks, David Nugent and Jeff Schlupp didn't make it today, but it's an opportunity for other players to come in.

    "I think it's an important game for both sides. We have a healthy respect for everyone we play. There is a danger in feeling that the hard work's done, and that's far from the case. When you play a side in a similar situation, there's more at stake. Both sides, I'm sure, will try to win the game.

    Let's bring up to date with today's team news. After naming the same starting line-up for five successive games, Burnley boss Sean Dyche is forced into two changes. Ashley Barnes is suspended and Sam Vokes injured, so Lukas Jutkiewicz partners Danny Ings in attack, and Matty Taylor comes in on the wing for his first start since August.

    With Leicester climbing off the foot of the table, it's Burnley who now occupy last place. Sean Dyche has done a terrific job in making the Clarets competitive on a mini-budget - taking points off Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City this season - but the goals have dried up at the wrong time. Dyche's side found the net in four games, while leading scorer DannyIngs is going through a barren spell.

  82. Post update

    Andy King and Robert Huth

    Nigel Pearson's side looked doomed at the start of April; seven points from a position of safety, with just nine games left.

    Three successive wins later, and the great escape is on. West Ham, West Brom and Swansea have been beaten since the beginning of the month. After 140 days, Leicester have finally climbed off the bottom; a win at Burnley today could lift them out of the relegation zone.

    Bryan Robson

    Since the Premier League was formed in 1992, only two teams have avoided relegation after being bottom on Christmas Day. Bryan Robson (above) led West Brom to a remarkable escape in 2004-05, and Sunderland did it last season.

    Could Leicester be about to follow them?
