Rondon's goal was Albion's first since Craig Dawson scored against Arsenal in mid-March, but it broke the dam, because twelve minutes later Dawson added a second on his 27th birthday, heading in a Chris Brunt corner.

"I am very pleased to reach that mark with two games to go, for a team that was given no chance at the start of the season".

"I think there's a bit of that about him".

Pulis has revealed that he wants to sign the 23-year-old left-back, but the West Brom manager has admitted that settling on a fee would be a problem.

Sam Vokes' second-half brace denied West Brom a first away victory of 2017 and earned Burnley a 2-2 draw that virtually confirmed their Premier League survival.

"We'll wait, but it's pretty much".

As has been well documented, Burnley have excelled at home this season, picking up 32 points so far, a total only bettered by top-seven teams. Play the right way and lose every week and they will be saying, "You're playing the wrong way".

"Over the four and a half years that I've been here we've always had something to fight for and that's a great achievement in itself for my staff and players", Dyche said in quotes published on Burnley's official website.

With injury ending Michael Keane's ever-present record and forcing the England worldwide onto the sidelines alongside erstwhile defensive partner Ben Mee, Dyche was unable to stick with the side that secured a first away win of the season a week previously to put safety within touching distance.

They sit 14th in the table, just two points off ninth place, and defender Matt Lowton says the players are looking up rather than down ahead of the Baggies game.

"We've got our fingers in the pie on quite a few players and we'll see how we go on those players".

"We conceded a poor goal from our point of view, with a couple of defections on the way to landing for him, and then they scored from a set piece, which they have the capability of doing - they're the highest set piece scorers in the division".

The manager admitted "we've got a couple of knocks. That will certainly be one of the areas we're trying to improve".
