Clarets duo hailed by team-mate
Burnley full back Phil Bardsley says the Clarets front two of Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood are a threat to anyone.
The pair have been instrumental in the excellent run that Burnley have been on since the end of December, scoring 12 goals between them to fire the side up the table.
Despite that run coming to an end at Newcastle on Tuesday, Bardsley has been impressed with the duo and says they have developed an excellent partnership.
He told the Lancashire Telegraph: “Those two are absolutely outstanding and they’re causing problems for anybody.
“They’ve got a good understanding. Once one gets on the half-turn, the other gets on his bike.
“We’re putting it in areas where we can affect other teams. If you’ve got willing runners and two strikers who are wanting to work their socks off and they can get themselves a goal then it’s brilliant for the team.”
