Burnley back in the Premier League after Sam Vokes' goal sees off QPR

Sam Vokes sealed Burnley's return to the Barclays Premier League at the first attempt with a brilliant headed winner against QPR kicking off a promotion party at Turf Moor.

Sean Dyche's side came into the match knowing victory would guarantee them a top-two finish in the Sky Bet Championship and the Wales international delivered a 1-0 victory in the 61st minute, rising highest to convert David Jones' free-kick.

Few could argue the Clarets deserve to retake their place at the top table, and the record-breaking riches that will follow next term, having stretched their unbeaten run to 22 matches dating back to Boxing Day.

They suffered a mild bout of stage fright in the first half but controlled the second, proving they are the division's most efficient outfit, loaded with grit, determination and pedigree goalscorers.
