No home win in five for Burnley
BURNLEY will go into Sunday’s derby with Blackburn Rovers hoping to recover from a third defeat in five winless home games, after slipping up against high flying Hull City last night.
The Clarets struggled to carve out chances against the Tigers in front of a crowd of only 10,450 – the lowest league attendance at Turf Moor this season.
Manager Sean Dyche made five changes to the team that drew 1-1 in their last game with Barnsley.
But they failed to have the desired effect against a promotion chasing Hull side who had even more determination not to lose a fourth straight away game.
Charlie Austin might have levelled with a stoppage time header from substitute Sam Vokes’ cross, but cupped his head in his hands in frustration after failing to hit the target.
Defeat kept Burnley 11th, while Hull moved up to second with victory.
