The Clarets spent most of the game being overrun by Huddersfield but were able to escape with a 1-1 draw at home.
Early in the game it looked like it would be a vintage performance by burnley. After watching a good chance by Aaron Mooy fly over the bar in the 10th minute, the Clarets got their game going. The dangerous left foot of Johann Berg Gudmundsson found the head of Sam Vokes for the second straight game. But for the rest of the first half, it would be Burnley that was on the back foot as they were pressured by Huddersfield. The Terriers bossed the entire game but didn’t have much to show for it because finishing was letting them down in the final third. The Clarets broke in the 66th minute as Chris Lowe found the head of Christopher Schindler following a long throw to equalize 1-1. After that it was a nervy end of the game that saw Lowe go off injured for Huddersfield and Schindler receive treatment for a head injury. Burnley went for it in the additional eight minutes of stoppage time but it wasn’t enough. Oct 6 - 12:07 PM
