Wolverhampton-Burnley Preview

A match with significant European implications had its pressure ratcheted higher for both Wolverhampton and Burnley ahead of Wednesday's mouth-watering clash at Turf Moor. The two top-half sides are in the hunt for continental play next season, with Wolves (14-13-8) four points from the fourth and final Champions League spot, and the Clarets (14-8-13) four back of Sheffield for seventh. Both clubs, though, suffered an off-pitch setback in this quest when the Court of Arbitration for Sport stunningly overturned UEFA's two-year ban of European play on Manchester City on Monday, clearing the way for the second-place team in the Premier League to remain in the top club tournament in Europe.
