Half-time: Burnley 1 Brentford 0

first_imgBrentford trailed at the break at Turf Moor to a Michael Keane header.The goal, on 25 minutes, came against the run of play after the Bees had looked the better side in the opening stages.Burnley keeper Tom Heaton turned away an Alan Judge free-kick and was then equal to a shot from Lasse Vibe, who looked the brightest of the Brentford players.Vibe also latched on to a Konstantin Kerschbaumer through ball but delayed his shot and allowed Heaton to block with his legs.Burnley then scored with their second serious attempt on goal, a corner nodded in by Keane at the far post.That settled the home side down a little and quelled Brentford’s bright start, with Scott Arfield blazing a good opportunity over the bar.Alan McCormack forced Heaton into a save at his near post before being booked for a strong challenge on Burnley left-back Ben Mee.Burnley: Heaton; Darikwa, Duff, Keane, Mee; Boyd, Jones, Arfield, Kightly; Hennings, Jutkiewicz.Subs: Gilks, Ward, Anderson, Taylor, Vokes, Vossen, Sordell.Brentford: Button; McCormack, Dean, Tarkowski, Bidwell; Judge, Diagouraga, Kerschbaumer, Gogia; Hofmann, Vibe.Subs: Bonham, Barbet, Colin, O’Connell, Udumaga, Clarke, Senior.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img
