Previous encounters: Bristol City

Burnley have just two wins in their last eight games at Ashton Gate, writes James Bird.

Last time out

Bristol City continued their resurgence under new manager Derek McInnes when the Clarets visited last November. Stephen Pearson, making his debut after joining on loan, scored the opener with three minutes to go until the break. Burnley got back in the game soon after the restart though as Ross Wallace scored with a looping volley. Just after the hour, Bristol would retake the lead as Pearson set up Brett Pitman before Albert Adomah ensured that the Robins took all three points as he scored a superb solo effort having taken up possession on the half way line.

Burnley were able to take all three points in Bristol when visiting during the promotion season. Martin Paterson and Steven Thompson were the scorers for the Clarets while Nicky Maynard scored from the penalty spot for the home side.

One for them

Brett Pitman and Nicky Maynard were again on the scoresheet as the Robins scuppered the Clarets’ promotion dreams in a 2-0 win. Pitman finished from a Adomah cross to give the home side a lead going into half time before Maynard finished from close range on 70 minutes to secure the points. Eddie Howe’s side had most of the possession and had a fair number of chances but were unable to beat veteran goalkeeper David James.
