CLARETS reporter Tyrone Marshall hands out the ratings from Burnley's Europe League play-off round second leg tie with Olympiakos.

Tom Heaton 7

Nothing he could do with the goal and a spectator really aside from that. Safe hands to hold Podence shot in first half, one shaky kick.

Phil Bardsley 7

Got forward well and showed plenty of bite in getting stuck into the visitors. Intent shown in first 30 seconds with break to byline.

Kevin Long 6

Perhaps a bit rash in diving in on Podence for the goal. A couple of iffy moments after a fine night a week ago

Ben Mee 7

Had very little to do, but won some timely interceptions when Olympiakos threatened to break. Calmed defence after nervy start.

Charlie Taylor 7

Has to be pushing Ward after start to the season. Linked nicely with McNeil and was happy to take his man on and get crosses in.

Aaron Lennon 7

Took some stick for not shooting in second half, but Barnes pass had forced him wide. Took the game to the visitors.

Ashley Westwood 8 (Man of the Match)

He was everywhere. The midfield set the tempo early on and Westwood never let it drop. One minute he was dropping deep to stifle counter attacks and pick the ball up from Long or Mee, the next he was charging forward. Passing was crisp and often forward, involved in many of Burnley’s best moments.

Jeff Hendrick 8

Looks a different player in a central midfield role. Rarely seen him so energetic. Bright, inventive and confident on the ball.

Dwight McNeil 8

Recovered from losing possession early on to shine. Happy to take creative mantle on and close with a shot. A fine first start.

Ashley Barnes 7

Poked an effort wide towards the end of the first half, but caused no end of problems to the Olympiakos defence. Has deserved more from Europe.

Sam Vokes 6

What could have been for Vokes. Had enough chances to be the Burnley hero. Should do better with two headed opportunities in the first half, but shot that hit the post in second half was a fine effort.


Matej Vydra for Barnes (65)
Chris Wood for McNeil (75)
