Burnley 1-1 Newcastle United

George Boyd
George Boyd’s four Premier League goals have all come on home soil
  • Burnley unbeaten in four league games
  • Cisse scores his fifth of the season
  • Clarets yet to score more than once at home this season
  • First PL meeting between the teams

Burnley were denied their third league win in four as Papiss Cisse's second-half strike earned Newcastle a point.

Sean Dyche - celebrating his 100th game in charge - watched the Clarets take the lead before the break when George Boyd fired in from outside the area.

They also went close through Danny Ings, whose early effort forced a good one-handed save from Rob Elliot.

Dyche not checking league table

Newcastle improved after the break and equalised through Papiss Cisse, who converted Yoan Gouffran's flick.

The draw means the Magpies are level with Tottenham, Liverpool and Arsenal on 20 points, following a period that has seen them reap 16 points from 21.

For Dyche, he will rue his side not having picked up their third win of the season, with keeper Tom Heaton having little else to do apart from pick the ball out of the net. Their next match is against fellow strugglers QPR, and they might be without defender Stephen Ward who came off on a stretcher with an ankle injury.

Danny Ings
Danny Ings was a constant menace for the Magpies

Ings was the star man for the Clarets at Turf Moor. His good scoring form over the last month for both club and the England Under-21s has coincided with Burnley's run of two wins and two draws.

Against the Magpies, he was a willing runner and target-man, while his link-up play in attack was exceptional and led to the goal.

On this occasion Kieran Trippier found Ings with a great ball; he in turn teed it up for Boyd to crack a drive from 20 yards that Elliot failed to react to.

The former Bournemouth forward had earlier forced a one-handed save from the Newcastle keeper and also set up David Jones with a lovely flick, only to see his team-mate find the top tier of the stands.

Pardew 'pleased as punch' with point

Newcastle could have benefitted with a player of Ings' assuredness in the first half. Without suspended midfielders Moussa Sissoko and Jack Colback they lacked any sort of leadership in the centre of midfield.

But in the past month manager Alan Pardew has demonstrated his ability to make effective changes. At half-time he threw on centre-back Steven Taylor and playmaker Remy Cabella, which seemed to steady the ship. Frenchman Cabella was particularly influential and played a part in the equaliser.

Trippier's inexplicably poor clearance arrived at the feet of the £10m summer signing, whose blocked shot fell to Daryl Janmaat on the right. The Dutchman's cross was flicked on by Gouffran to Cisse, and he used his knee to smash the ball past Heaton.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche:

"I think the positives are the performance again, particularly in the first half.

"Other than a really poor goal that we gave them, another good performance from us.

"There's some really good signs in what we're doing and how we're moving forward."

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew:

"I was pleased to see our fans had stayed for the second half because the last 20 minutes of the first half were tough to watch.

"The biggest difference was Cabella, he really gave us some technical ability and produced a really great second half or us.

"That's really good news because we've been waiting for him to come alive a little bit for us.

"It's been a slow burn for Remy but he changed this game for us."
