Burnley boss Brian Laws declared Brian Jensen's fourth consecutive clean sheet as the most pleasing aspect of his side's 4-0 rout of Hull at Turf Moor.

Chris Iwelumo and Chris Eagles both scored twice as the Clarets claimed their biggest win since the final day of their promotion season in 2009.

Laws, celebrating his 700th league game as a manager, said: "It's so pleasing to have kept four clean sheets on the bounce and we have a base to work from. You always know you have goals in us and the first goal is vital in the Championship."

The manager added: "I think we've played better in our last few games but didn't get the rewards. We should have perhaps had another four points under our belts. But we're going in the right direction.

"As I said last season we were shifting so many goals. Over the two seasons we've conceded over 100 goals, we've had to tighten that up and the back line has been superb."
