Burnley conceded four more goals this afternoon as we let go of yet another promising lead at Crystal Palace.
Just ten Championship games into the season we’ve shipped 22 goals (over two a game on average seems quite flattering right now actually). Only AFC Wimbledon have let in more at 24, whilst their fellow League Two strugglers Barnet also have 22 against.
It all started so well when Chris McCann and Martin Paterson gave Eddie Howe’s side a surprise two-goal lead in the first half. Wilfred Zaha got one back before the break but we still went in 2-1 to the good.
The second half was a different story. Ten minutes in Zaha bagged his second to draw the Eagles level, Damien Delaney put them ahead and Glenn Murray put the cherry on top for a 4-2 home lead.
Charlie Austin netted late on but it wasn’t enough and Burnley fall not just to defeat, but a very very disappointing one at that considering our strong early lead.
We’ll have full reaction this weekend on No Nay Never.
