And the Clarets had other chances on gaol, too. Dean Marney went close when his shot shaved the post and Ross Wallace had a shot on target saved by the keeper.

At the other enbd of the pitch, Burnley’s Michael Duff made a goal-line clearance to deny Matty Fryatt. Aaron Mclean was close with a header and Corry Evans volleyed wide. Clarets’ keeper Lee Grant made excellent saves to prevent goals from Andy Dawson and Evans.
