First-half blitz sees Burnley to Sky Bet Championship success

15 January 2016

Burnley recorded a third away win this week with an impressive 3-1 triumph at Brentford on Friday night.

After FA Cup success at Middlesbrough and an emphatic 5-0 triumph at Milton Keynes Dons in midweek, the Clarets continued where they left off with a dominant first-half performance in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

Scott Arfield started the scoring at Griffin Park in the 12th minute, curling home a fine effort to put Burnley in front, after being teed up by former Brentford striker Andre Gray.
Joey Barton - who netted his first goal for the club in that aforementioned rout against MK - doubled his Burnley tally just after the half-hour mark with a free-kick, shortly before George Boyd volleyed home a third.

Brentford came out fighting after the break, and reduced the arrears when Alan Judge netted on his 250th League appearance - but it was to no avail and Sean Dyche's men comfortably went on to take the points.
