Cape Town - Burnley picked up three crucial points with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Southampton in their Premier League encounter at Turf Moor.
Burnley maintained their fortress status at Turf Moor with another impressive display in front of their home fans.
It wasn't a classic by any stretch of the imagination but with their target of Premier League survival, manager Sean Dyche must be commended for his side's resilient displays in the English top-flight.
The first-half was hardly one for the memory books with only one shot on target from either side but the second-half display from goalkeeper Tom Heaton and Joey Barton's late heroics compounded the Claude Puel's side to their fourth consecutive league defeat.
The 34-year-old had only been on the field for five minutes when he fired in a low 25-yard free-kick which took a deflection before beating keeper Fraser Forster.
Southampton were the bigger threat for most of the match, and the Clarets Heaton to thank for their eighth home league win of the season.
The England keeper had to be alert to pat down James Ward-Prowse's first-half header, and then in the closing moments made two outstanding one-handed saves to deny ex-Claret Jay Rodriguez and teenage winger Josh Sims.
Burnley move into the top-half of the table with the impressive result, while the visitors slump to 13th position, a worrying sign for a team who started the season in blistering form.
