Match Round-Up:

Burnley can be pleased with the performance. They matched Preston for most of the game and had the best chances until the last 10 minutes when the Clarets were put under some pressure. They however weathered the storm and will be the happier of the two teams. McGreal and Lowe in particular played well with a much improved Duff in defence and Harley came the closest to scoring from a few yards out.
