    Blighted Burnley Suffer Defeat to Swans

    Burnley slipped further into the relegation mire as a Keiran Trippier own goal condemned the Clarets to a 1-0 defeat against Swansea.

    The hosts were undone in a close encounter when Trippier failed to clear and instead diverted beyond Tom Heaton.

    And things don’t get any easier for Sean Dyche’s men, whose next five matches are against sides currently in the top seven.

    The hosts initiated proceedings off the back of a turbulent week for striker Ashley Barnes, following widespread criticism for his tackle with Nemanja Matic last weekend.

    And Barnes would have hoped to put all controversy behind him with a goal; and he had the best chance of the opening 45 minutes as he was played through but contrived to hit an effort straight at Lukasz Fabianski.

    The Swans failed to consistently test Heaton, however Bafetimbi Gomis managed to have an effort denied by the ex-Manchester United goalkeeper before dragging an effort just wide.

    Wayne Routledge and Barnes himself both missed chances either side of the break, before Swansea finally made the breakthrough in the second half – with no small hint of good luck.

    In the opening minutes of the second half, Federico Fernandez appeared to survive a strong penalty claim for handball in the box, before Swansea scored soon after.

    Target man forward Gomis headed on from a corner, from which Jack Cork forced a wonderful save from Heaton, before Trippier sliced the resulting clearance into his own net.


    Both Barnes and Sam Vokes came close to equalising for the hosts, however Dyche’s side were kept out by the resilient Swansea defence.

    And the Burnley boss felt his side were unlucky to leave without any of the spoils.

    "I don't think there was anything between the two sides," Dyche told Sky Sports.

    "Generally the margins are tight and we let in a real soft one again and of course we have got to make sure we eradicate that.”

    “I thought it was going to pan out as an indifferent 0-0 because no team could find that defining moment and there was no real zip about the game today."

    And Dyche hasn’t given up on the dream of survival yet, citing plenty of games left to rescue the side currently in 18th place.

    "If you win games the table looks after itself. There is a lot of football still to go and considering where we were after game 10 I think we are making a good fist of it."

    Swansea counterpart Garry Monk was in agreement with Dyche, however, that the match was lacking in action.

    "It wasn't a classic," Monk told Sky Sports. "I think it was always going to be a case of whoever could go on and get that first goal was likely to go on and win the game or have the upper hand.

    "Thankfully we got that goal and held onto the lead quite comfortably in the end, but I don't think both teams created too much danger.”

    Monk also insisted he wants his charges to kick on and establish a record points tally for themselves in the Premier League – a feat which they are currently on par to achieve.

    “It's a great achievement again and it's important to the club and the players themselves so that they know they're creating that bit of history this season.”

    "The 47-point barrier is the next mark and a good motivation for us to try and break that."

    The victory has seen Swansea leapfrog West Ham into 8th place, and may well be eyeing Southampton in 5th – who are now only six points away from the Welsh side.
