McNeil lands Dyche praise
Burnley manager Sean Dyche hailed the efforts of Dwight McNeil after he set up both goals in the 2-0 win over Cardiff.
The Clarets' victory, secured by two Chris Wood goals, moved Dyche's side 11 points clear of Cardiff and virtually guaranteed a fourth successive season in the Premier League.
Both of Wood's goals were created by 19-year-old winger McNeil, whose emergence has been the biggest success story of the club's season.
"He's a real talent," said Dyche. "I've said it for weeks now, and a long time ago when he first came into the side. His calmness at the end to dribble out of trouble, he's a really good player and he can only mature.
"It's not been an easy turnaround for us to get to where we've got to.
"There's still more to come but he's played a big part in that."
