GOALS from Joel Lynch and Jordan Rhodes consigned Burnley to defeat at Huddersfield Town this afternoon.
Lynch put the hosts ahead after only seven minutes with a header from Oliver Norwood’s corner.
Joseph Mills appeared to have prevented the header from going on with a goal-line clearance but it was adjudged to have crossed the line.
David Edgar thought he had equalised but the flag was raised for offside against Charlie Austin.
The Clarets were second best though and Rhodes hit the crossbar before seeing another effort saved by Lee Grant.
Rhodes did find the net in the 58th minute, though, firing past Grant into the top corner.
Burnley: Lee Grant, Kieran Trippier, David Edgar, Jason Shackell, Joseph Mills (Keith Treacy 73), Ross Wallace, Dean Marney, Chris McCann, Junior Stanislas (Alex MacDonald 90), Sam Vokes (Michael Duff 64), Charlie Austin. Subs not used: Brian Jensen, Ben Mee, Marvin Bartley, Brian Stock.
