Burnley 1 Norwich City 2

What had been a perfect week ended on a disappointing note as a late fightback wasn’t enough to take the Clarets into the fifth round of the FA Cup for only the second time in nine years.

 Back-to-back wins have breathed fresh life into the Clarets’ Premier League campaign but there will be no extended cup run to go with it after top-flight rivals Norwich set aside their recent struggles to go into Monday’s last-16 draw.

 Goals from former Blackburn Rovers defender Grant Hanley and Josip Drmic inside the space of five minutes early in the second half were enough to take the Canaries beyond round four for the first time since 2012.

 The Premier League’s bottom side deserved their success as the Clarets were unable to lift themselves sufficiently off the back of their mid-week heroics at Manchester United.

 But Burnley at least didn’t go out without a fight as a superb strike from Eric Pieters threatened a comeback and a replay neither club arguably needed during their ‘mid-winter’ break early next month.

 Both sides mixed it up following their mid-week efforts in the Premier League, but they were still senior line-ups on show.

 And there was no shortage of quality displayed in an entertaining first half that somehow ended goalless.

 Norwich set the tone inside the opening 10 seconds when straight from the kick-off Tom Trybull slipped in Drmic for a chance the Swiss rolled the wrong side of the post.

I know it is easy to say after the event but we are better off out of it. When they brought it back to 1-2 was saying to myself do not score again and leave us with a replay.

Have to say I am disappointed at our approach to the cup, we are losing what it is that footie is about imo. I understand the logic and argument but if we used logic to it's conclusion none of us would be clarets . We are being sucked in to the money jungle..................when was the last time we felt pure joy watching a game.
