As for Burnley, they are fifth bottom of the division with 22 points.

Burnley are three points above Cardiff, who sit in the relegation zone.

Chris Woods offside goal vs Watford

Burnley could have won the match against Watford.

Deep into second half injury time, Burnley had the ball in the back of the net.

Chris Woods slipped the ball into the Watford goal after Ben Foster had parried a shot from Dwight McNeil.

But that was the wrong call. As shown by TV replays, Woods was onside when McNeil had his effort on target.

It was a terrible call from the linesman as Jose Holebas was clearly keeping Woods onside.
