SAM Vokes’ 89th-minute header cancelled out Jordan Rhodes’ goal as the East Lancashire derby finished in a draw at Turf Moor this afternoon.
Rhodes had put Rovers ahead when he headed home Mauro Formica’s cross in the 68th minute.
But Vokes rose highest to flick Junior Stanislas’ free kick into the far corner with a minute remaining.
Paul Robinson had made two fine saves before the interval as Burnley had the better of the first half.
Robinson kept out Charlie Austin's goalbound header from Ross Wallace's cross before the keeper dived full length to turn Martin Paterson's shot wide.
