FULL-TIME: Millwall 2, Burnley 2
4:57pm Saturday 2nd November 2013 in Sport
LEAGUE leaders Burnley came back from 2-0 down to keep their unbeaten Championship run in tact.
The Clarets went into this afternoon's game at Millwall boosted by seven straight league wins.
But that run was put under threat when the Lions roared into a 2-0 lead through Scott McDonald and Danny Shittu.
Sam Vokes pulled a goal back within a minute of Millwall doubling their advantage to go into the break 2-1 down.
Burnley put the home side under spells of pressure in the second half, and it paid off as substitute Shane Lowry turned the ball into his own net to bring the sides level.
Scott Arfield came close to winning it for the Clarets, but his right foot drive bounced back off the right hand upright.
Vokes got to the rebound and looked to be brought down by Nicky Bailey, but the referee paid no attention to the striker's penalty appeals and instead booked the pair for clashing.
Both sides went all-out for the win, but could not deliver the decisive finish.
Burnley's lead at the top has been cut to one point after Leicester's 3-0 win at Watford, but the Clarets are now unbeaten in 10 Championship games.
