BURNLEY midfielder David Jones was denied a goal by the crossbar, but was satisfied to secure a result against his old club Manchester United.

Jones, who started his career at United, hit the bar with a free kick in the opening minutes of match.

The Clarets drew 0-0 to register their first point in the Premier League after losing to Chelsea and Swansea City in their opening two matches.

“To hit the bar was a bit unfortunate,” Jones admitted.

“But it was a good all-round team performance.

"It was nice to finally get a point on the board today.

“I don't think I've had a result against United since I left the club.

“Hopefully we can kick on now and take something from the first three games in the Premier League.

“We're enjoying it."
