We slipped to a second straight league defeat of the season as Burnley won 2-1to maintain their unbeaten start to the campaign. Two first-half headers, the first from Danny Ings and a second from Sam Vokes, put Burnley in control at half-time. But Chris Maguire went close for us early in the second half before David Prutton headed in to pull a goal back with 20 minutes remaining. The result leaves us still without a point this season. It was the us who had actually started the brighter, Michail Antonio pulling the ball back to Jacques Maghoma, who could only fire wide on nine minutes. But Sean Dyche's side soon started to take control and took the lead in the 33rd minute after Keiran Trippier played Ross Wallace down the right-hand side. Wallace took his time and lofted the ball onto the head of Ings who nodded it past our keeper Chris Kirkland. And it did not take long for Burnley to double their lead, Trippier beating his defender and whipping a ball to the back-post where it was met by Vokes, who headed it back across goal to make it 2-0 after 38 minutes. We came out the quicker after the restart, with half-time substitute Maguire finding his way past two players before his shot was parried by Tom Heaton in the visitors' goal. We eventually found a breakthrough with 20 minutes to go as right-back Liam Palmer put in a cross for Prutton to attack and his diving header flew past Heaton. We pushed for an equaliser, a half-chance falling to Maguire with 10 minutes to go, but they were almost caught out from a corner when Burnley substitute David Edgar glanced a free header wide
