Hwang Hee-Chan leads Wolves to win on Burnley blunder

Hwang Hee-Chan took advantage of a defensive blunder to earn Wolverhampton Wanderers a 1-0 victory over struggling Burnley in their Premier League clash at Molineux on Tuesday that left the visitors rooted in the relegation zone.

Wolves were gifted the winner three minutes before half-time as Burnley tried to play out from the back. When Sander Berge lost possession, Matheus Cunha fed the ball to Hwang and he scored his eighth league goal of the campaign with a simple finish.

It was a game of few clear-cut chances, and while the best fell to the home side, Wolves goalkeeper Daniel Bentley made a brilliant double-save to deny Jay Rodriguez and Josh Brownhill in quick succession in the first half.

Wolves move up to 12th in the table with 18 points from 15 games, while Burnley, who were coming off their biggest Premier League era win in a 5-0 success against bottom side Sheffield United at the weekend, stay in 19th place with seven points from their 15 matches.
