FULL-TIME: Peterborough United 2 Burnley 1

Lancashire Telegraph: EYES DOWN Charlie Austin on the charge for Burnley EYES DOWN Charlie Austin on the charge for Burnley

Emile Sinclair enjoyed a dream full debut for Peterborough United to condemn Burnley to a 2-1 defeat.

The recent striking recruit from Macclesfield Town was handed a first start and responded with his first two goals for the club.

Sinclair needed only three minutes to repay his manager's faith with the opening goal, collecting a Lee Tomlin pass and rifling past Burnley keeper Brian Jensen.

Only a last-ditch goal-line clearance from defender Ben Mee prevented him doubling his lead soon after and Ryan Tunnicliffe headed another excellent Posh chance into the side netting.

Burnley then lost Jensen to a groin injury before coming alive in the attacking third. Posh keeper Paul Jones denied Charlie Austin, Jay Rodriguez, Chris McCann and David Edgar during a frenetic couple of minutes.

But it was the hosts who struck again when Sinclair caught full-back Kieran Trippier dithering, held off a couple of challenges and coolly slotted past substitute keeper Lee Grant.

Any thoughts of a Posh stroll were dispelled when Keith Treacy spectacularly halved Burnley's arrears in the last minute of the first half with a 25-yard screamer, but the visitors were unable to find another way through.

And the same applied to Posh as Sinclair could not convert a couple of decent chances to complete a hat-trick - firing one into the arms of Grant before blasting another opening wide.

Now when we have stopped trying to get one over on one another shall we please try and concentrate on what is becoming quite serious at Turf Moor. Even under Brian Laws last season we didn't reach the dissy heights of fourth from the bottom. May I remind every claret and blue eyes that points in the bag gained now are better than trying to play catch-up as the season progresses and the pitches get wetter and harder. You cannot sell people like Eagles and Elliott and Fox for that matter just to try and balance the books without it having some effect on the team and manager. If it had'nt been for the Boro support our gate would have been down again and it will be down again on Saturday. Nice one Barry and the board get money in for players sold and lose money as your gates drop. I can't wait for the end of this season when the loyal Clarets fans will be asked to dig deep into their pockets and they refuse to do so as they remember what Kilby and co did before the start of this season. Want to save money Barry get rid of those who come out with comments like "The Clarets will finish in the top six this season because it is quite obvious that we won't." Oh and if we get clobbered at home on Saturday by the Saints watch out for a back-lash.

Claretmeandyou I couldn't agree more, people who say that they are balancing the books don't see that income generated in the future will be much less and all at a time when we need to be generating more. How many times does anyone think we will have over 16,000 on this season? All those fans gained whenreaching the prem and how quickly we have managed to let them go again.
No matter how bad it could get the saving grace will always be that we are not Rovers fans! Even Arsenal had to beat themselves to give them some points.
