Keane keeps Burnley in touch with Middlesbrough as Charlton suffer the drop

Michael Keane's injury-time strike earned Burnley a thrilling 1-1 Sky Bet Championship draw in a top-of-the-table clash with Middlesbrough at Turf Moor.

It looked like a 70th-minute goal from Jordan Rhodes would see Boro extend their lead at the summit. But Burnley found a way through in the second minute of injury-time when defender Keane (above) bundled the ball home to remain two points behind Boro.

It was probably the result third-placed Brighton were hoping for as they moved level on points with Burnley after a comprehensive 4-0 home win against QPR.

At the other end of the table, Charlton's goalless draw at already-relegated Bolton meant they will be joining Wanderers in League One next season.

Hull and Derby guaranteed themselves a play-off spot with away victories over Reading and Bristol City respectively.
