Chris Wood's stoppage-time penalty denied Wolves victory at Turf Moor as a 1-1 draw meant the battle for European places intensified.

Raul Jimenez's 75th-minute strike appeared to have boosted Wolves' Champions League hopes, but Burnley refused to roll over as they extended an undefeated home league run that stretches back to New Year's Day.

Wood, having missed a sitter moments before, went for an ambitious overhead kick in the area and drew a handball from Matt Doherty.

Wolves appealed for a high boot and VAR took a long look before Wood fired his spot-kick into the top corner.

The result means Wolves are only three points off the top four, having played a game more than Leicester and Manchester United, but also under pressure from behind, with Spurs one point back and Sheffield United two back in seventh. Burnley are five points back in ninth.

Burnley's impressive form since the restart had seen them cut the gap to the Europa League places considerably in the table, they are currently tenth.
