Burnley 2-2 West Brom

It's all over after a cracker of a second half.

Burnley almost safe, West Brom back in the goals - I fancy both sets of fans will be happy.

Burnley 2-2 West Brom

Half chance for James McClean, who thought he had caught Tom Heaton off his line.

The Burnley skipper scurries back to keep that one out.

Can either side grab a winner? We're in to added time...

Vokes levels for Burnley

Burnley 2-2 West Brom

Sam Vokes has done it - he levels up with a looping header, but what was Ben Foster doing?

Coming out of his goal to claim a ball he was never going to reach, and Vokes capitalises.

Burnley 1-2 West Brom

Burnley have brought on Andre Gray as they attempt to find a leveller.

But the striker can only blaze over from the edge of the box with his first chance of the game.

Dawson puts Baggies in front

Burnley 1-2 West Brom

It's a goal on his birthday for Craig Dawson!

The West Brom defender meets a deep corner with a diving header and it finds its way into the net via the post to put the Baggies in front.

Burnley 1-1 West Brom

Burnley look to be just trying to find their feet again since the goal.

They have to scramble away as West Brom continue to pepper the area with high crosses.

The Clarets were on top until the equaliser, but it's given West Brom some confidence.

Burnley 1-1 West Brom

That looked like handball?

A smart corner routine from Burnley as they work it to the edge of the box and James Tarkowski connects with a volley, which may well have hit Marc Wilson's arm.

Not too many shouts from the Clarets, and not sure Wilson could have got out the way of that one - it was definitely on target though.

Burnley 1-1 West Brom

I think it was Craig Dawson's header that initially came back off the crossbar for the visitors.

They did well to keep the ball alive amid the chaos in the box, and it's Rondon who profits.

Burnley 1-1 West Brom

The Baggies finally break their duck.

Burnley hung on for successive corners, with one coming back off the crossbar, but the hosts could not stop Salomon Rondon turning in the box to fire home.

Game on.

Burnley 1-0 West Brom

Well, West Brom need to do something they've not done in nearly two months if they are to get anything out of this - score a goal.

At the minute, it's Burnley who look more like adding to their lead.

Scott Arfield takes the ball down in the box, but can't quite get it out of his feet and the visitors scramble clear.

Vokes puts Clarets ahead

Burnley 1-0 West Brom

Turf Moor springs into life!

Sam Vokes tucks home from an Ashley Barnes cross, but it's Barnes who must take a lot of credit there as he was hauled down in the box but popped back up to his feet to feed his strike partner.

Easy finish for Vokes in the end as he taps in from inside the six-yard box.

West Brom have now gone more than eight and a half hours without a goal...

The last one came against Arsenal on the 18 March.


Burnley 0-0 West Brom

Talking of Salomon Rondon, the West Brom forward has just tried his luck with a volley from all of 30 yards.

Ball dropping out of the air, get that one wrong and it's an ankle-breaker. Instead, his low effort takes a deflection and wins the visitors a corner.

Tony Pulis uses that opportunity to finally replace Jonny Evans, who went down clutching his ankle in the first half, with Allan Nyom coming on.

Burnley 0-0 West Brom

For all West Brom's lack of creativity, it has to be said Burnley have defended well so far.

The visitors have had relatively little to shout about, that Salomon Rondon half chance aside.


Burnley 0-0 West Brom

It's Burnley who have started the stronger after the break.

Stephen Ward gallops forward down the left and delivers a teasing ball that's headed behind for a corner.

Scott Arfield sends the set-piece to the edge of the six-yard box and James Tarkowski meets it on the run, only to head powerfully over the crossbar. 


Burnley 0-0 West Brom

Here we go. Burnley get the second half under way.


Burnley 0-0 West Brom

The stats show just one shot on target in the first half.

That must've been Sam Vokes' effort from George Boyd's cross, although Ben Foster did also save from a scuffed Ashley Barnes effort early on - it may well have been going wide.

Let's hope for a few more chances after the break.

Burnley 0-0 West Brom

Sean Dyche is screaming on the touchline. I can't tell what he's saying, but I hope it's for his side to try and get the ball down.

If Tony Pulis could ask that of his West Brom side too, that'd be fantastic.

There's little for the Match of the Day team to go off so far.

Burnley 0-0 West Brom

In fairness to James McClean, he's one of the only players who looks willing to get the ball down and run at his marker.

He's the Baggies' main outlet, as is George Boyd for Burnley.

Burnley 0-0 West Brom

James McClean has just done himself.

Step over after step over in acres of space before completely forgetting where the ball is.

Burnley break as the winger leaves possession behind him and he nearly puts Sam Vokes in, but he just strays offside.

Burnley 0-0 West Brom

Jonny Evans has come back on for the visitors, but looks to be hobbling around at the back.

Will he try to see it through until half-time? Allan Nyom was sent out to warm up for West Brom.

Burnley 0-0 West Brom

Burnley almost capitalised on their numerical advantage there.

With Jonny Evans off the pitch, the hosts worked the ball to Scott Arfield in the area and it took James McClean tracking back to stop the Burnley midfielder having a shot on goal.

Fantastic work rate from the Baggies winger.

I've just been talking up one centre-back, but there's another in trouble.

Jonny Evans landed awkwardly as he went to make a clearance with no Burnley players anywhere near him, and he's gone down clutching his ankle.

Tony Pulis looks concerned.

Burnley 0-0 West Brom

Kevin Long's had a solid start to life in the Premier League.

The Irish defender signed for the Clarets back in 2010, but has only made 22 appearances in between loan spells at the likes of Accrington and Rochdale.

West Brom have failed to really trouble him and centre-back partner James Tarkowski just yet. 

All too comfortable for the hosts.

Burnley 0-0 West Brom

Well, Burnley have upped the tempo in the last couple of minutes and look the more likely to open the scoring.

Matthew Lowton whips in a deep cross from the right and it runs all the way to the back post where George Boyd is lurking, but the long-haired Clarets winger can only slice over with his left foot.

Burnley 0-0 West Brom

That's the best chance of the game.

Sam Vokes get across his marker at the front post to latch on to a deflected George Boyd cross from the left and fire an effort towards goal, but Ben Foster does brilliantly to get down and keep it out.

Much more promising from Burnley.

Burnley's Sam Vokes

Burnley 0-0 West Brom

Safe hands from Tom Heaton.

The Burnley stopper comfortably claims a cross from Craig Dawson, who was looking for the head of Salomon Rondon.

It was a cracking crossfield pass from Baggies debutant Marc Wilson to find his opposite full-back in the first place, the sort of ball that if David Beckham or Steven Gerrard had played it in their day we'd be falling over ourselves to praise them.

Burnley 0-0 West Brom

How's that for a 50-50.

Stephen Ward is loitering under a high ball on the left and Craig Dawson absolutely clatters him in the air, but wins the ball. 

The West Brom defender had the run on Ward and wasn't backing out of that one.

Referee Mike Jones waves play on.

Burnley 0-0 West Brom

First sight of goal for Salomon Rondon, and it came from a West Brom clearance really.

The powerful forward suddenly found himself in space to the right of the Burnley box, but his half-volley was well blocked.

You'd think, with such an aerial presence, the Baggies would hoist the corner into the box - instead they go short to Jake Livermore and he overhits a cross.

Burnley 0-0 West Brom

This is scrappy. Perhaps unsurprisingly. 

West Brom haven't scored in five games and Burnley are hardly prolific.

The hosts look solid at the back so far though, even without Michael Keane for the first time in the league this season.

The biggest cheer so far has been for the ball landing on the roof at Turf Moor, with the crowd waiting for it to drop like kids in a school playground.

Burnley 0-0 West Brom

There's been little in the way of chances so far, but it's Ben Foster who is forced into the first save of the match, of sorts.

The ball drops to Ashley Barnes in the West Brom box and he scrambles an effort on target, but that's not troubling the Baggies stopper.

Burnley 0-0 West Brom

I hope the players can make out the difference in these kits better than I can.

Burnley are in their traditional claret and light blue while West Brom are in a very dark shade of blue that is hard to distinguish from the home shirts in the sun at Turf Moor.

But the hosts are keeping the ball well in the early stages, so I'm guessing they're not finding it an issue....


Burnley 0-0 West Brom

Here we go.

The visitors get this one under way.
