Burnley caretaker manager Mike Jackson admitted he was 'disappointed' his side did not claim all three points against Aston Villa in their battle for Premier League survival as he promised his side would be 'ready' for the tense finale on Sunday.
The 1-1 draw at Villa Park moved Burnley out of the relegation zone and they will avoid relegation if they match Leeds' result on the final day.

The Clarets could not find a winner, which would have boosted their chances of securing their Premier League place, and Jackson warned the job was not done yet.
'It's not mission accomplished,' Jackson told BBC Sport. 'The least we wanted was a point. We're a little disappointed not to get the three.
'Everything I've seen tonight is what this group does. They've had to dig in, they've had to work. We'll need it again on Sunday.'
