Match Report

Burnley 2 Ipswich Town 2

BURNLEY battled back from two goals down to grab a share of the spoils against Ipswich Town at Turf Moor.

The Clarets were facing an uphill battle as Jim Magilton's men took a two goal lead within the opening 10 minutes.

But Burnley fought back, with Kyle Lafferty quick on the mark to reduce the deficit, and, on the hour mark, striker Andy Gray popped up with a bizarre equaliser.

Sylvain Legwinski gave the Tractor Boys the lead on seven minutes when he headed home Owen Garvan's corner into the bottom corner.

Just two minutes later, Jim Magilton's men doubled their advantage when former Clarets striker Alan Lee headed Billy Clarke's cross past Burnley stopper Gabor Kiraly.

But the Clarets quickly reduced the arrears with another headed goal, this time from Lafferty, who converted from Wade Elliott's right wing delivery.

In the second-half, Ipswich began the brighter, but it was the Clarets celebrating on 60 minutes when Gray delivered a leveller.

From Alan Mahon's throughball, Town goalkeeper Neil Alexander smacked his clearance against the Scotland international and the ball spun into the Ipswich net.

Burnley pressed for the winner, and Lafferty came closest when his close range header was superbly kept out by Alexander, while the young Northern Ireland international blazed another good effort over the bar.
