Clarets let quartet go

Winger Keith Treacy is one of four Burnley players who have been told they will not be offered contracts with the Barclays Premier League newcomers.

Treacy, defender David Edgar, midfielder Brian Stock and goalkeeper Nick Liversedge are all free to find new clubs this summer when their present deals at Turf Moor expire.

Ipswich's play-off hopes ended at Turf Moor as Michael Kightly's second-half goal was enough to hand Burnley a 1-0 Sky Bet Championship victory.

The Tractor Boys needed to win to keep their play-off chances alive, and headed into half-time level with already-promoted Burnley.

However, 10 minutes after the break the home side went ahead as Kightly grabbed his third goal in as many weeks - and it proved to be the winner as the Clarets secured the double over Ipswich.

Burnley got their bid for automatic promotion from the Sky Bet Championship back on track as they returned to winning ways with a 1-0 victory at Barnsley.

Ashley Barnes headed the only goal of the game in the seventh minute to move Sean Dyche's side 11 points clear of Derby, who moved into third place following their win at Blackpool and QPR's defeat at Ewood Park.
