Burnley 2-1 Queens Park Rangers – Premier League – 10th January 2015
QPR produced yet another dreadful defensive display at Turf Moor on Saturday, with Burnley securing a vital three points.
Scott Arfield opened the scoring on 12 minutes after the Hoops backline allowed him to dribble with ease into the box. However, once again the in-form Charlie Austin did his best to rescue Rangers, with the striker converting from the penalty spot on 33 minutes after he had been fouled in the box.
Soon after, the hosts were ahead once again, when Steven Caulker failed to deal with a long ball, leaving Danny Ings to fire home. In the second period, the Clarters had more chances to increase their lead while the Hoops struggled to test Burnley ‘keeper Tom Heaton.
Sean Dyche’s men go 17th, a point above the drop-zone and a point above Harry Redknapp’s QPR. Indeed, that defeat for Harry Redkanpp’s men saw them break the Premier League record for consecutive away defeats from the start of the season (10).
