FULL-TIME: Burnley 2, Yeovil 0
4:59pm Saturday 17th August 2013 in Sport
TWO goals in five second-half minutes from Keith Treacy and Sam Vokes stretched Burnley's unbeaten start to the season to four games.
The Clarets endured a frustrating first half to go into the break goalless.
Championship newcomers Yeovil pressed hard against the ball to unsettle Sean Dyche's men and force mistakes.
Burnley's best chances fell to Vokes, but the striker first missed the target at the end of a promising break, then sent a powerful header from Kieran Trippier's excellent right wing cross over.
Yeovil were mystified as to how they hadn't taken the lead after Kevin Dawson had a shot palmed out to Davis, who ballooned over an open goal from just two yards.
But Burnley seized control after Keith Treacy and Scott Arfield were introduced with just over 20 minutes to go.
Treacy sent in a cross from the left that deceived debutant loan goalkeeper Sam Johnstone at the near post and curled in.
Treacy was involved in the second after he was fouled by Davis on the right.
Arfield picked up the ball to the left of the box after the free kick and cracked a shot on target. The ball bounced off Vokes six yards out and left Johnstone flatfooted for the second.
Vokes should have had a third but after side-footing Treacy's cutback on target, Luke Ayling cleared off the line.
