CLARETS reporter Tyrone Marshall hands out the ratings from Burnley's 0-0 draw with Brighton at Turf Moor.

Nick Pope 6

One low save from Gross aside he was rarely troubled, but did slice a couple of kicks in open play

Matt Lowton 7

Kept the dangerous Izquierdo quiet and created a good chance for Barnes with a first half cross

James Tarkowski 6

Rarely troubled defensively but sloppy in possession a couple of times, including one very loose first half pass

Kevin Long 7 (Man of the Match)

Comfortably got the better of Leonardo Ulloa, who barely had a kick. For a man without a Premier League start a year ago he is continuing to grow in confidence. Sean Dyche’s faith has been rewarded.

Stephen Ward 5

Wasn’t posed many problems defensively but very rarely linked up with Gudmundsson going forward

Aaron Lennon 5

Gone off the boil after a bright start to his Clarets career. Never really got into the game on Saturday.

Jack Cork 7

A controlling display in midfield. Tried to drive Burnley forward and popped up in some promising positions

Ashley Westwood 6

Moved the ball well but never stamped his authority on the game in what was a tight midfield battle.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson 7

Again the most creative presence on the pitch for Burnley. Set-pieces were generally dangerous

Ashley Barnes 6

Could have done better with first half chance from Lowton cross. Feeding on scraps aside from that.

Chris Wood 6

Came off injured but his threat was minimal before that. Couldn’t find a way into the game


Sam Vokes for Wood (66)
Georges-Kevin Nkoudou for Lennon (72)
Jeff Hendrick for Westwood (81)
