    Burnley 1-0 Southampton

    That's it.

    Burnley's eighth home win of the season.

    Joey Barton the hero.


    Joey Barton celebrates

    Burnley 1-0 Southampton

    Tom Heaton makes a great double one-handed save to deny Jay Rodriguez from 20 yards out and then fellow sub Josh Sims who follows up. The second save was remarkable.

    He deserves the team bath to himself. With bubbles.

  3. Post update

    Burnley 1-0 Southampton

    Defender Virgil van Dijk goes close to getting his fifth of the season but Clarets keeper Tom Heaton is once again well positioned to collect his header from a corner.

    We're moving into stoppage time territory.


    Burnley 1-0 Southampton

    Ryan Bertrand hits a lovely dipping volley but Tom Heaton was well positioned at the near post.

    Decent hit though.

    Moments later Bertrand smacks an angled effort/cross that misses the boot of Jay Rodriguez by fractions.

  5. GOAL - Burnley 1-0 Southampton

    Joey Barton

    Joey Barton scores a free-kick

    Yup, he just scored.

    What a moment for Barton, who left the Clarets after helping them win promotion, and now scores in his first league game on his return.

    His free-kick was weak and low but the deflection off the wall beats Fraser Forster to his left.

    You should have heard the roar. Watch it on MOTD later.

    Burnley 0-0 Southampton

    Burnley have a free-kick - 25 yards out. Joey Barton behind it....

  7. CLOSE!

    Burnley 0-0 Southampton

    All sorts just happened there.

    James Ward-Prowse dinks in a free kick to the far post. Virgil van Dijk plays the ball into the six-yard area where keeper Tom Heaton manages to push the ball away from any Saints pouncers.

    A nervy moment for the home side.


    Burnley 0-0 Southampton

    Joey Barton makes his first Premier League outing since May 2015...

    Joey Barton comes on as a substitute
  9. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Southampton

    Cedric makes a well-timed tackle to deny Andre Gray who was running in on goal.

    At the other end Shane Long's header at the far post ruffles the side-netting. Clarets fans held their breaths thinking it was in before letting out a cheer.

    Football eh?

    Shane Long reacts

    Burnley 0-0 Southampton

    Oriol Romeu scythes down Ashley Barnes. 'A yellow all day long' from Paul Tierney.

    Ex-Claret Jay Rodriguez is on for Dusan Tadic. It's his first return to Turf Moor since he left four years ago.

  11. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Southampton

    Burnley's Belgian Steven Defour has a pop from the left edge of the area, but Fraser Forster dives to his right to make a routine training-ground save.

  12. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Southampton

    Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg's raking shot is deflected twice and goes out for a corner.

    Yet again the corner comes to nothing. Moments later, Nathan Redmond shapes to shoot from just inside the area but his sidefoot effort has as much power as... well something that doesn't.

    This isn't very good.

  13. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Southampton

    Jeff Hendrick tries one from the left edge of the area, but his shot drifts a couple of yards wide of Fraser Forster's near post.

    Southampton's Oriol Romeu is then penalised for a foul on Ashley Barnes. He actually got the ball - bit harsh of ref Paul Tierney.

    Steven Defour's free-kick is easily collected by Fraser Forster.

  14. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Southampton

    It's clipped in by James Ward-Prowse but the ball is easily cleared.

    Hmmm... it's not been a great start to the half. 

    I can't hear the crowd.


    Burnley 0-0 Southampton

    Dusan Tadic is caught by Dean Marney as the Saints break.

    Southampton have a free-kick - again - about 40 yards out. Dead centre.

  16. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Southampton

    Steven Defour - instead of trying to clip it into the area - drills the effort towards goal which struggles to even reach the Saints wall.


  17. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Southampton

    Burnley win a free-kick within seconds of the restart - about 40 yards out....

  18. KICK-OFF
