FULL-TIME: Burnley 2, Watford 3

BURNLEY suffered a third straight defeat after surrendering a 2-0 lead at Watford.

The Clarets went in front just before the break when Jay Rodriguez reached 20 goals for the season with a superb finish one-on-one with goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak.

The top scorer struck in the 41st minute after reacting quickly when Adrian Mariappa's header back Kuszczak dropped short.

Rodriguez chested the ball down on the edge of the D, moved into the box and fired home the first from around 12 yards out.

After Michael Duff was replaced by Brian Easton at the break, Burnley doubled their lead five minutes into the second half courtesy of an own goal.

Nyron Nosworth climbed to meet Ross Wallace's inswinging free kick from the right but headed into his own net.

The defender made amends by beginning the fightback four minutes later, heading in a Sean Murray corner, before the equaliser came with less than 20 minutes to go.

Ross Wallace was unlucky to skim the bar with a free kick. Watford moved the ball up to the other end from the goal kick, and from a quick throw-in substitute Alex Kacaniklic levelled.

A third goal in 20 minutes completed the Hornets' comeback, as Troy Deeney stabbed home from close range when Burnley failed to deal with a corner.

Rodriguez was denied an equaliser and his second of the afternoon by Kuszczak's diving save.

i was not at match today, but it seems to me that friend grant is the weakest link, 4 shots on target and 3 goals. If one looks back at his save to attempt of his ratio he aint cutting the mustard. Bring back beastie to end of season then go and buy a keeper who is serious about his job

What rubbish, from the team and the manager. This team is not good enough.. Send the manager and the Bournemouth imports back to Bournemouth.What happened to the C.M's comments, not reaching the play offs will be deemed a failure. When the C/F goes take the manager and his entourage with him

Got to be disappointed with being 2 up to get beat in an away game were 980 hardy souls could afford to travel all the way to london to support the clarets

Lets spare a thought for the marching inbreds down at trampwood park, Many of these tramps were marching in bear feet as they can't even afford designer shoes like us more affluent hard working clarets. A typical axample of this was on display at manchester last week were no more than 200 tramps could afford the 20 mile trip

Venkys soup kitchens will be open as usual during the inbred protests and marches. Also venky chicken is free to all inbredburners who have had to sell a kidney to supplement their giros.
