Tom Heaton 7: Reduced the options for McCormack in one-on-one, forcing him to strike against post.

Kieran Trippier 8: Another assist, delivering a deadly near post ball that Pearce put through his own net.

Michael Duff 8: Largely limited McCormack's impact on the game. Withstood late pressure.

Jason Shackell 8: Terrific tackle stopped McCormack finding an empty net.

Ben Mee 8: Brave clearance to deny Smith as striker prepared to pull trigger. Involved in attacks.

Ross Wallace 6: Gave away a few niggly fouls. Went for ambitious shot when he had better options.

Dean Marney 7: Usual energy, and laid the perfect pass on for Trippier to send in killer cross for first.

David Jones 7: Made up for mistake putting Heaton under pressure with a strong second half .

Scott Arfield 8: Showed determination and dexterity to secure a big win in promotion race.

Ashley Barnes 7: Grew into the game on his full debut following Ings' injury. Hold-up and link play excellent.

Sam Vokes 7: Put Pearce under pressure to force the own goal equaliser. Adapted to new partnership.

Man of the match: Scott Arfield - Doesn't just cover a lot of ground but has the quality to go with it, and added another important goal.

I'm sorry but a 7 for Jones isn't justified. Was she even there yesterday. He had the worst game in a Burnley shirt that I have seen from him. Wallace wasn't bad he was just ineffective and lacked creativity from the start. Two players who got the same rating from Geldard as Jones were Vokes and Barnes and I thought they outshine most players with their work rate. Start giving honest critiques of the players please that's what I and I'm sure other claret fans would prefer to the usual Burnley won so everyone was fantastic mentality. Rant over UTC!!!
