LONDON (REUTERS) - Chris Wood struck late to spare Burnley's blushes against 10-man West Ham, heading in an equaliser with five minutes left to secure a 1-1 draw in the Premier League on Saturday (Oct 14).

West Ham winger Michail Antonio had put the visitors ahead in the 19th minute, making the most of some sloppy defending to score his first goal of the season.

Despite the good start, the Hammers were on the back foot from the 27th minute after striker Andy Carroll was sent off for receiving two yellow cards in two minutes.

Burnley had plenty of chances but struggled to hit the target.

Wood, though, made no mistake when he headed home Johann Berg Gudmundsson's cross to equalise and extend Burnley's unbeaten run in the Premier League to six games.
