BURNLEY, England (AP) — Burnley beat Hull 1-0 Saturday to finally claim its first Premier League victory of the season after 11 games.

The Clarets went ahead at Turf Moor through a 50th-minute goal from Ashley Barnes who headed in a cross from Kieran Trippier.

Newly promoted Burnley remained bottom of the league with seven points — two from safety. Queens Park Rangers, which hosted Manchester City later Saturday, also has seven points.

Hull played the last 20 minutes with only 10 men after its captain Curtis Davies was forced off with an injury when his side had already made three substitutions.

Hull, which has not scored in three straight games, stayed two points clear of the drop zone in 14th place.
