Burnley battled to a lone goal victory away at fellow strugglers Hull, but the outcome of matches elsewhere relegated Sean Dyche’s men from the Premier League.

Danny Ing scored in the second half but wins for Leicester City, Aston Villa and a point for Newcastle means the Clarets cannot secure their spot in the English top flight any longer.

Hull could not stave off a point despite Robbie Brady twice hitting the woodwork. The Tigers slip into the bottom three, two points adrift of 17th-placed Newcastle United, who ended a run of eight straight league defeats to retain hopes of Premier League survival.

Burnley’s undoing came with their run of five defeats in six matches prior to Saturday’s afternoon kickoff.

It is a straight road back to the Championship for Burnley who only gained promotion last season. They will now have to deal with the prospect of losing their top goal scorer Danny Ings, who notched up his tenth goal of the season today.

Hull’s final two league matches pose a tricky test with a trip to Tottenham Hotspur immediately on the card and a final day clash with Manchester United lying in wait.

Back at the KC Stadium on Saturday, Brady almost gave the hosts the lead when he slammed one of his two attempts from deadballs against the crossbar moments after Ashley Barnes had wasted a couple of chances for Burley, including a saved header.

The visitors got on the front foot after the break and claimed the lead when Egyptian Ahmed Elmohamandy’s poor headed clearance off Scott Arfield delivery into the box fell for Ings, who fired home from ten yards.
