Graham Alexander netted a penalty double as Burnley came from behind to claim a 4-1 win at Hull and boost their hopes of Barclays Premier League survival.

On the day Portsmouth were relegated following West Ham's win over Sunderland, Burnley looked like following them out of the top flight when Kevin Kilbane headed Hull into a third-minute lead.

But ex-Scunthorpe forward Martin Paterson equalised after 35 minutes, Alexander tucked in penalties after 64 and 70 minutes and Wade Elliott curled in a stoppage-time fourth as the Clarets claimed just a second win in 14 Premier League matches under manager Brian Laws.
