Ashley Barnes opened the scoring for Sean Dyche's side in the 22nd minute before Michael Kightly doubled the advantage shortly before half-time with a well-taken free-kick.

The Clarets are now eight points clear of third-placed Derby with two games to play, meaning they go up automatically for the first time since 1973 and return to the top flight after being relegated in 2010.
