Burnley v Huddersfield Town

Last updated: Saturday, 08 January, 2022, 14:31

Another miserable day for Burnley and their fans.

Unbelievable miss from Tarkoswki, unmarked from a Westwood free kick, but somehow he heads over, he has to score.

Three minutes of added time.

GOAL! Pearson

Tarkowski does well to chest the ball out for a corner, but from the resulting kick Pearson heads home at the back post.

Tarkowski header from a Westwood corner is well wide.

Burnley sub: Dodgson replaces Stephens.

O’Brien forces a fine save from Pope, all Huddersfield at the moment.

GOAL! Koroma

Mistake from Lowton allows Taylor to break down the wing, he cross finds Koroma who has the simple task of slotting it home.

Thomas flashes an effort across the box, no Huddersfield players there.

Lennon blasts an effort well over the bar.

Another double Huddersfield sub, that’s all five now used.

Ward and Thomas replace Rhodes and Pipa.
