Last Time We Met...Crystal Palace!

Last Time We Met...Crystal Palace!

Burnley visit Selhurst Park this Saturday looking for their first Championship away win of the season against Crystal Palace. Can you recall the last time these two sides met? Well it was during our promotion season of 2008-9.

Our first clash was at Selhurst Park very early on in the season on the 23rd August 2008. It was only our third match of the season and we had started it badly under Owen Coyle. We were thumped 4-1 in our opening game away to Sheffield Wednesday and then went down 3-0 at home to Ipswich.

Clarets fans had little optimism therefore ahead of the Palace game and we would have readily taken a point from the Eagles before the match.

In the end that's what we got after a goalless draw but it felt like a loss after Palace, reduced to nine-men held on to secure a point. Jamie Scowcroft and Shaun Derry had both picked up second yellows and were sent off after 47 and 52 minutes respectively but despite second-half pressure from the Clarets we just couldn't get the breakthrough.

Burnley: Jensen, Duff (Blake 63), Carlisle, Kalvenes, Caldwell, Elliott, Alexander, McCann, McDonald (Gudjonsson 74), Eagles, Paterson (Akinbiyi 82).

Subs Not Used: Penny, Jordan.

Booked: Paterson, McDonald, Carlisle.

Palace Nine Survive

The return game at Turf Moor played on the night of Wednesday 11th March 2009 was a completely different kettle of fish with the Clarets coming out eventual winners 4-2 against Neil Warnock's men.

The Clarets started the match knowing that if they won, they would be back in the play-offs positions in 6th spot.

There looked little chance of that happening with Burnley 2-0 down after only 35 minutes of play and Clarets fans fearing the worst. There was some joy for the Clarets though in the first half after a Carlisle header brought the score back to 2-1 six minutes before half-time.

Most of the second half was a pretty, nervous frustrating affair with Burnley having the greater of the possession but unable to make it count. Countless referring decisions also seemed to be going against us with one or two appeals for a penalty waved away.

With just seven minutes remaining though, the Clarets were awarded a penalty and Alexander made no mistake from the spot to equalise. 2-2 Clarets, but a point was not enough really to maintain our challenge for a play-offs spot and somehow we now had to find that winning touch and score again.

Boy did we do that, adding two more goals in this exciting ten minute period. Thompson put Burnley ahead with a fierce shot on 88 minutes and then Jay Rodriguez coolly slotted in the fourth to give the Clarets a handsome 4-2 victory.

Burnley: Jensen, Williams, Carlisle, Caldwell, Kalvenes, Elliott, Alexander, McCann (Gudjonsson 72), Blake (Eagles 69), Thompson, Paterson (Rodriguez 61).

Subs Not Used: Penny, McDonald.

Goals: Carlisle 39, Alexander 83 pen, Thompson 88, Rodriguez 90

Looks even more like an underfed horse.....(strangely never noticed this when he was at Turf Moor).
