Full time: Burnley 0 Middlesbrough 0

BURNLEY failed to take home advantage against travel sick Middlesbrough at Turf Moor.

The Clarets dropped to 10th following their goalless draw, against a side who had lost their previous five away games in the Championship.

Burnley have managed to take just two points from a possible 12 since the end of January.

But the play-off dream remains alive, with Sean Dyche's men still seven points off sixth place with a game in hand.

The Clarets went into last night's game without striker Danny Ings and winger Ross Wallace, after both were thought to be suffering from hamstring injuries.

The duo will undergo treatment this week in the run-up to Saturday's trip to Brighton, in the hope that they have a chance of being fit to face the Seagulls, who occupy seventh spot in the league.

Gus Poyet's side won 2-0 at leaders Cardiff City.

Another 2 points lost. Just not quite good enough. Although totally dominating the 1st half we never put a decent pass to Austin, Patterson looked completely isolated and out of position on the left. Apart from the shot that their goalie made a fantastic save to stop us going in at half time 1 up, that was it. Trippier again fully deserved the man of the match award and took some real welly from the 'Boro players, he doesn't go and stay down readily.

Admit Treacy made the best pass of the evening to Austin I still think he is overweight and really needs to get some serious training under his belt, so again I am still puzzled with Sean's substitution tactics. Fisrt half kept possession really well then in second half started "punting" the ball up field and giving it away/passing to quickly. Lost, drawn,lost, drawn in last 4 matches giving only 2 points out of a possible 12 is basically a downwards plunging position, so in all essence it was a good thing results went okay for the Clarets and pleasing to see 'those from down the road' were brought down to earth with a bang. Still, UTC

Yes first half had most of the play but sections of the crowd don't seem to like that. It seems they want real urgency. They should remember that the opposition can't score if they don't have the ball. Problam was Burnley didn't look like scoring either. They need more pace, That's why Boro kept kicking Trippier becuase he had some. Need some others with that pace and penetration.

I agree. Older supporters near me couldn't grasp that Boro were never going to score if they didn't have the ball. It would seem they would rather us pump balls forward in the hope that something happens. Unfortunately modern football doesn't work like that. Possession is the key and the most successful teams are economical with their passes.
