It was the SkyBet Championship side who threatened first with Sam Vokes going close twice as he headed against the crossbar from Kieran Trippier's cross before forcing Michael Ingham into a smart reflex save.
Burnley doubled their advantage in the 61st minute with Junior Stanislas emphatically converting Trippier's pass beyond Ingham into the bottom corner.
The result was put beyond any doubt in the 77th minute as Danny Ings tapped home after Dean Marney's shot was saved before Scott Arfield broke away and slotted home with nine minutes left on the clock.
