Plymouth v Burnley Official Longside Match Report


By Turfmanphil

The Clarets lose due to a goal by Micky Evans at the start of the second half with only 23 seconds on the clock. Despite having most of the possession they never recovered from that early blow in the second half and looked ineffective up front for most of the game.

Match Round-Up:

It was a very disappointing day for the Clarets against very ordinary opposition.

In the first half the game was fairly even with Akinbiyi coming closest to scoring on 28 minutes with his shot being saved by the keeper from about 18 yards. Burnley had by far the better possession overall in the game but failed to impress up front and with one slip of concentration just after the start of the second half allowed Micky Evans to score following an earlier mistake by Hyde with only 23 seconds on the clock. The Clarets seemed to have most of the possession after that although again Elliott was substituted by Branch this time after 57 minutes but to no avail as attack after attack came to nothing with Gifton Noel-Williams again looking ineffectual. Itís going to be a long, hard journey home, back from
Plymouth for the 528 Clarets fans who attended this game!
