FULL-TIME: Millwall 0, Burnley 2

First published in Football

GOALS from Sam Vokes and Danny Ings maintained Burnley's 100 per cent start to 2013 in the Championship, with a 2-0 win at Millwall.

The Clarets were in control for large parts of the first half and took the lead in the 22nd minute with Vokes' third goal of the season, following good work by Junior Stanislas in the build-up.

Millwall, who were seventh before the game, tried to emphasise their play-off credentials with a bright start to the second half, and James Henry was influential in creating a couple of early openings.

But Burnley regained control and doubled their lead through Ings just before the hour.

Kieran Trippier won possession off new Millwall signing Nathan Tyson and at the end of a right-wing raid crossed for Ings to knock in the second.

There were further chances for the Clarets, but after failing to convert them they managed to resist late pressure, with Trippier blocking off the line from Liam Trotter's low drive to make it three clean sheets in a row in the league.

A third straight Championship win moves Burnley up to seventh in the table.

Outstanding result against a good team that are genuine play off contenders.

Very pleasing that both strikers got on the score sheet today, emphasising that if/when Charlie does go that we have sufficient back up that is more than capable of holding their own and showing a degree of consistency.

If you look at the joke fest down at the Ewood and Bucket comedy club Rhodes seems to be the only one scoring (all be it consolation goals) so when he demands a transfer request before the end of January because he has realised what a massive mistake he has made they will be properly
jammed up the bovril pipe.

I was a little worried at first, when Dyche sorted the defence out, that the goals would dry up, but we're scoring and winning against top teams whilst Charlie Austin is still injured! He may have to fight for his place when he's fit again!

Pathetic coverage on NBC for our game. Showed every single attack of theirs and our 2 goals. Didn't show 1 on 1s or saves that their keeper made.

Was similar last week against palace. Showed every attack from the 1st half that they had n 1 of ours!

It gives the wrong impression of the match. However, credit to Jenny jacket for coming out and saying that they deserved nothing from the game. That's good enough for me. Take note Ian holloway!! Utc

According to what I hear Rhodes did absolutely nothing - ok but score. Our forwards (goal scorers) put a shift in as well. In fact all the teamvdo under SD. Ivnote that Neddy meat balls is quiet.
