Burnley had mixed fortunes in their two friendlies against League Two opposition on Saturday.

The Clarets came from behind to beat Port Vale 3-1 but lost 1-0 at Crewe in games played at the same time a short distance from each other.

Charlie Kirk’s goal midway through the first half settled things at Gresty Road in a game overseen by assistant boss Ian Woan.

Sean Dyche was at Vale Park and saw his side also go behind in the first half, Vale in front after 10 minutes.

Jeff Hendrick was robbed of possession 30 yards from his own goal and as the visitors failed to deal with a ball into the box, Tom Pope turned and sent in a low shot that beat Tom Heaton who should have done better.

A below-part first-half continued after that but the Clarets improved in the second period.

They were level eight minutes after the interval, Chris Wood peeling away at the back post to head home Robbie Brady’s cross for his fifth pre-season goal.

The decisive goals came late on with Matej Vydra putting the visitors ahead with 10 minutes to play, taking Wood’s pass before slotting the ball home.

The game was safe on 85 minutes, the impressive Aaron Lennon breaking down the right and squaring for Brady to finish first time.
