Burnley have just the one win at Portman Road but draws aren’t uncommon, writes James Bird.

Last time out

Burnley travelled to Portman Road in August 2010 and earned a hard fought draw with an injury time equaliser from Clarke Carlisle. The Clarets finished the tie with just ten men as David Edgar was dismissed on 79 minutes for a second bookable offence. Ipswich went ahead from a corner on 86 minutes that was headed back into the danger area by Jon Stead before David Norris back-heeled the ball home from close range. However, the visitors didn’t give up and a Graham Alexander corner was met by Carlisle – whose glancing header earned Laws’ men a point.

Ipswich Town 1 – 1 Burnley. 14 August 2010.

One for us

Burnley’s one win at Ipswich came in the 1969/1970 season courtesy of a Chris Casper goal.

One for them

A late penalty sealed all three points for the Tractor Boys when Burnley visited in February 2006. The Clarets had gone ahead courtesy of a Michael Ricketts goal as Burnley managed to restrict Ipswich’s chances at goal. The home side equalised after 62 minutes as Alan Lee controlled a cross and turned John McGreal before smashing the ball home. Burnley again finished a game with ten men as Wayne Thomas was dismissed after 81 minutes for a second booking, just after Michael Duff had fouled ex-Claret Alan Lee in the box with Matt Richards converting the spot kick for the winner.
