Burn­ley ben­e­fit from Ful­ham woes

Bristol Post - - SPORT -

» BURN­LEY prof­ited from two Ful­ham own goals in quick suc­ces­sion as they came from be­hind to win 2-1 at Turf Moor, de­spite not reg­is­ter­ing a shot on tar­get.

An­dre Schur­rle’s early strike was can­celled out in the 20th minute when Jeff Hen­drick’s ef­fort went in off for­mer Bris­tol City man Joe Bryan. And, three min­utes later, it was De­nis Odoi who in­ad­ver­tently beat Ser­gio Rico, head­ing in a Hen­drick crossed.

Calum Cham­bers headed against the Burn­ley bar soon after and Ful­ham sub­sti­tute Lu­ciano Vi­etto was de­nied after the break. It was Burn­ley’s third con­sec­u­tive Premier Leaguewin, while sec­ond­bot­tom Ful­ham are now five points from safety.
