Burnley 1 Southampton 1

The Clarets extended their unbeaten run to six Premier League games with an injury-time equaliser on an afternoon of penalty drama at Turf Moor. 

 It looked as though Southampton would leave with a vital three points in the battle just above the bottom three after the Clarets were controversially denied a first-half spot-kick and Nathan Redmond put the visitors ahead 11 minutes after the break.

 To add insult to injury Ashley Barnes was booked for diving for the incident which saw him floored by Saints’ keeper Alex McCarthy.

 But in stoppage-time the Clarets were finally awarded a first penalty in 68 Premier League games when defender Jack Stephens blocked a header from Peter Crouch, who made a big impact as a substitute on his debut.

 Barnes took responsibility and coolly slotted home the equaliser as he became the first Burnley player since the departed Sam Vokes at Everton in April, 2017 to score from the spot in a top-tier fixture.

 And it was no more than the Clarets deserved from a storming late fightback as they peppered the Southampton penalty area to ease some of the pain of being on the end of a last-ditch leveler at Manchester United in mid-week.

 With new signing Crouch starting on the bench – alongside the fit-again Robbie Brady – the Clarets were again unchanged following their draw at Old Trafford.

Should have been 3 points that, poor referee again, Barnes (although he worked his socks off) and Wood both miss their chances again, still one point is better than none, good old Crouchy won the pen for us not sure anyone else would have got up high enough to head it on the defenders arm. Powder puff play from Cork.
Onwards and upwards, come on now Eddie do us a favour against Cardiff.

Just watched Goals on Sunday, looked like Burnley don’t get penalties, as it looked a definite pen first half, nice strike by Saints to go ahead, then right at the death guess what? Burnley get a pen when it should have been a foul to Southampton for Crouch shirt pulling the defender.😮
