James Tarkowski’s chested finish was his third goal of the season

James Tarkowski scored the only goal of the game as Burnley earned a hard-fought win over Brighton to move out of the Premier League relegation zone.

In a game of few chances, the Clarets took the lead five minutes before half-time as Tarkowski deflected in Jack Cork’s shot with his chest.

Brighton failed to get going until the closing stages and rarely tested Joe Hart, though substitute Jurgen Locadia did spurn a great chance late on when he headed fellow substitute Glenn Murray’s cross over the bar from six yards out.

Defeat leaves Brighton 11th while Burnley climb to 17th having ended a run of eight games without a win.

More to follow.
