Burnley win Championship title

Burnley have re­corded a 1-0 victory at neighbours, Blackburn Rovers, to finally seal the Championship title.

Vincent Kompany’s side ini­tially secured promotion to the Premier League at the first time of asking when they posted a 2-1 victory at Middlesbrough on April 7.

Since then, the Clarets have struggled to get their hands on the second-tier crown, putting together a three-game winless streak ahead of the short trip to Ewood Park.

However, Burnley finally earned the moment that their season deserved on Tuesday night as Manuel Benson scored the only goal of the game. – Reuters
