DERBY ANALYSIS: Burnley player ratings

This Is Lancashire: Tom Heaton got nine out of 10 Tom Heaton got nine out of 10

BURNLEY reporter Suzanne Geldard gives her player ratings for the Clarets’ 2-1 win at Blackburn Rovers.

Tom Heaton 9: Made a terrific late tip-over from Lowe. Was unsighted for Rhodes’ opener.

Kieran Trippier 9: More inventive as the game went on after the reins were put on him first half. Brave at back.

Michael Duff 8: A veteran of this famous derby. Protected Burnley’s lead to record their long-awaited win.

Jason Shackell 8: Another derby goal at Ewood Park, making up for hesitation with opener.

Ben Mee 8: Cleared off the line from Varney just before the break. Good delivery going forward.

Scott Arfield 9: A constant bright spark. Delivered the initial ball that ultimately led to Ings' winner.

Dean Marney 8: Made some bright forward runs but his defensive work was more important to the outcome.

David Jones 8: In the mix of all the action in the middle of the park a year after being in opposite camp.

Michael Kightly 8: Snapped at opposition ankles. Up for the battle. A great derby mentality.

Sam Vokes 8: Had started to get into the game more, taking on defenders, when he was brought off.

Danny Ings 9: Made history by scoring the winner and end Burnley's 35-year wait for a derby win.

My ratings:

Heaton - 7 Not a lot to do bar decent tip over

Trippier - 9 Dangerous going forward but defensively sound

Mee - 8 Solid

Duff - 7 Got the runaround a little by Dunn in the first half. recovered well

Shackell - 9 Great defensive performance and what a brave headed equaliser

Jones - 8 Dominated the midfield

Marney - 8 See Jones

Arfield - 9 A great engine and good touch of skill

Kightley - 8 Started well and unlucky to get hooked

Ings - 9 (MOM) Great all round performance and thoroughly deserved his goal

Vokes - 7 Marshalled well by Hanley

Subs

Wallace - 8 Great ball for the equaliser

Barnes - 7 looks a good player and involved in the winner

Basic synopsis: An easy win against a poor side without getting out of low gear.

Maybe a tad generous Suzanne, but certainly a great TEAM effort. You could see in the second half Rovers just ran out of gas. We got stronger and stronger and that has been a major factor in our season. Opposition teams have to work so hard against us that by the hour mark they are Dunn !

You saw the game through your blue and white tinted glasses so obviously she (And all other Burnley fans) saw a different game to you, you absolute bellwipe.

"without getting out of low gear"

Yet you award four 9s and five 8s. Atleast leave it to others to contradict you!

So that means your beloved Rovers have been crushed by a bottom half Bolton club away and out run by an average Burnley side at home. I seem to remember you saying in a different post that Blackburn was getting better. Better?

Face facts Tommy Boy, your Rovers are sinking faster than a mobster in concrete boots. This latest slap in the face is being brought to you by the ever inept Venky ownership. I saw your raving comment about the dire financial situation of those 'improving' Blackburn Rovers. You know it's only going to get worse. You know what's coming, and it ain't good. GO CLARETS!!

Yes, but when we actually hit high gear as we did against Forest and Derby (You know, a couple of actual DECENT Championship sides) it is 10's all round.

By the way - FIVE YEARS

You didn't see the game because you are banned from every pub in England, can't afford Sky and never attend live matches.

Loads of Blackburn fans said we deserved our win. No burnley fan has said that Blackburn deserved to win. Everyone knows u are not a claret ewood Tom. U r a boring person trying to be a WUM. Ur banter is 4th division at best.

Don't be mean to 4th division. That's just unnecessary.
