FULL TIME: Burnley 1 Coventry City 1

First published in Sport

BURNLEY were held to a point by struggling Coventry City this afternoon to seemingly end any remaining hopes of making the Championship play-offs.

The Clarets led at half time through Charlie Austin, but Clive Platt’s 67th-minute header earned the visitors a point.

Austin rose highest to head home Ross Wallace’s cross in the 19th minute, after Coventry had dominated the opening stages of the game.

Kieran Trippier had to clear Richard Keogh’s header off the line, while Lee Grant twice produced smart saves to deny Alex Nimely.

But Burnley improved after Austin’s goal and Danny Ings came close to making it 2-0 when his shot was saved by Joe Murphy at the end of a superb run into the box.

Murphy then denied Austin after the striker had made his way past Martin Cranie and Keogh.

The Clarets started the second period brightly and Junior Stanislas fired a 20-yard shot narrowly wide.

But Platt, one of three Coventry substitutes, headed home a right-wing cross from Burnley-born Oliver Norwood midway through the half.

Wallace had a 30-yard effort saved by Murphy late on after Coventry lost substitute Cyrus Christie to injury and had to finish the game with 10 men.

Ings saw a shot deflected over and Austin was denied by the goalkeeper as he attempted to nod home a cross from Stanislas.

Clarets: Lee Grant; Kieran Trippier, Michael Duff, David Edgar, Ross Wallace; Josh McQuoid, Dean Marney (Marvin Bartley 69), Chris McCann, Junior Stanislas; Charlie Austin, Danny Ings. Subs not used: Brian Jensen, Daniel Lafferty, Cameron Howieson, Joe Jackson.

Coventry: Joe Murphy; Jordon Clarke (Cyrus Christie 56), Richard Keogh, Martin Cranie, Chris Hussey; David Bell (Gael Bigirimana 56), Sammy Clingan, Oliver Norwood, Gary McSheffrey; Alex Nimely (Clive Platt 56), Cody McDonald. Subs not used: Chris Dunn, Jordan Willis.

Referee: Andy Woolmer.

Ahh well at least the chicken pluckers got tanked again i really think they are going down this time and without a sugar daddy to pile money in a long slippery slide down the leagues is a real possibility.

Great to see Ex-Claret Nathan Dyer putting another nail in the Woevers coffin. Certainly another Dyer performance. Watched the game live, they were AWFUL.

So ferkin sad, that you know the outcry against Kean will be so great that the B/burn site will be closed, as a team we are now ferked. I wish I could meet any Rao brother or Steve Kean for just 2 minutes, what they have done to BRFC is criminal. I have to come on a dingle site to post this so please don't take the p1ss. If this sh1t were happening to Burnley you would have my deepest sympathy. Blackburn is being raped and the PL is just standing by and watching so are many of the PL teams.

KEAN YOU ARE A ****... and one day i would love to meet up with you, you are being paid to fail.... no guts no integrity no kind of man,,,

Re-Givet. 'Lets keep it private'. Yes you would say that wouldn't you. Why? Because we all know what 'not in the right frame of mind' really means. He's told you what we all think of you and your part in this whole, sorry, crooked, regime. Also, well done Sky TV, the Wigan game you've very kindly moved to Monday night wont be the relegation dogfight you hoped it would be. Instead, your viewers are going to witness a real video nasty, far worse than the Bolton game, when Rovers fans will come together to vent their utter disgust at everyone concerned in destroying our club...for the last time at this level, for a very long time. Whats that rumbling sound I hear and that vibration I feel In the ground? I think it's a combination of two things. One, the whole of Burnley laughing hysterically and two, JW spinning in his grave.

So funny that under the article about the Burnley game, all the discussion is about Rovers. Doesnt matter how dire our situation is, its still more interesting than Burnley to Burnley fans. Also so ironic that when we are prevented from commenting underneath the Rovers news, we use Burnley to do it. Anyway, I have big enough to hold my hand up and say that Burnley have been underdogs for that long its little wonder they take the opportunity to gloat. Weve had our 33 years of fun so its their turn to have a bit. Somebody said on here they think we might actually be relegated. No kidding Sherlock? I dont think there will be one Rovers fan who thinks we wont be relegated. Its not the main concern now to me, its the ownership that bothers me. I would quite happily take the Conference League now with Flitty and Jansen if we could rid ourselves of Venkys and their muppet
