Late intervention from Austin
Substitute Charlie Austin left it late to secure a dramatic 2-1 win over 10-man Coventry and arrest Burnley's alarming slump in the npower Championship.
Coventry's Cody McDonald slotted home shortly before the hour mark against the run of play.
However, Ross Wallace's equaliser and the late dismissal of Gael Birgimana proved too much for the hosts to overcome.
Indeed, Austin was on hand in the closing moments to comfortably tuck home and ease the pressure on Clarets boss Eddie Howe.
