Huddersfield Town 1 Burnley 2

A second-half winner from Ashley Barnes capped a Clarets fightback as Burnley triumphed in a feisty Roses clash to climb out of the Premier League’s bottom three in gutsy fashion. 

 Barnes’ fifth goal of the season and a second in as many games for revitalised strike partner Chris Wood saw the Clarets come from behind to win a pulsating game which saw both sides finish with 10 men.

 Huddersfield defender Christopher Schindler was sent off moments after Wood had cancelled out Steve Mounie’s opener with his 100th career goal before the break.

 And Burnley then had to play out seven minutes of injury time at the end when substitute Brady was sent off for a challenge on Isaac Mbenza.

 But by then, Sean Dyche’s men were ahead thanks to Barnes’ cool finish as they made it back-to-back wins for the first time since September as the manager was also able to celebrate a century - his 100th league win as Burnley boss continuing the Clarets’ revival and leaving the Terriers deep in relegation trouble at the foot of the table.

 Not surprisingly following the weekend victory over West Ham, Dyche named the same starting line-up as the Clarets looked to inflict an unwanted club record of eight successive league defeats on Town.

 That meant a second successive start for Dwight McNeil and again the teenager was highly influential in an eventful opening 45 minutes which saw the Clarets come from behind thanks to Wood’s fifth goal of the season and the home side reduced to 10 men.

Cracking 3 points that, but stupid bookings and a reckless no need challenge from Brady just took the edge off it. But hey ho onwards and upwards there is hope yet, good start to the New Year.

Great three points ,thought Brady should have had a yellow not a red.. Never mind he took one for the team..

Really good 3 points. Ground that one out and starting to show the "Clarets Character" again, with some signs of quality.

Brady could have "done the necessary" without getting himself a red, but can't argue with the decision.

Their goal was worrying, but before Jilts chimes in - no - Heaton was not at fault - further out than the Everton goal. Mee lost his man.

FFS, now Huddersfield think they are an ‘EPL club’
Sometimes I think Clubs need to cut their cloth...
