  • Disputed early Patrick Bamford penalty enough for Leeds - but Nick Pope seemed to win a block tackle
  • Referee Robert Jones, a Premier League newcomer, then inexplicably blows for a foul on Leeds keeper Illan Meslier by Ben Mee, just before Ashley Barnes lashes the ball home
  • Burnley dominate the second half in terms of possession and territory, without really creating a golden chance, but they can feel aggrieved not to take at least a point
