    Time:90'
    • Burnley
    • Leeds United
    • 90+3 And that's it from Turf Moor. Leeds are up to fourth with that result but Burnley really should have won it - especially considering their first half performance.
    • 90+2' Almost there for Leeds. Three minutes of time added on almost done.
    • 90' Bartley wins a throw down the right but Leeds defend it well.
    • 89' Rodriguez has a snap strike from the edge of the box but McCarthy saves.
    • 88' GOAL. Smash and grab. The corner is half cleared, Nunez clips it back in and the Clarets again fail to clear their lines. Snodgrass collects the ball at a pretty tight angle and strikes back across Grant to send the travelling faithful into raptures. 2-1.
    • 86' Clayton and Snograss exchange passes before finding White down the left, Hines looks like he won the ball cleanly enough but Scott Mathieson penalises him for diving in. Nunez over the free-kick right on the edge of the area. He goes for goal but it is deflected for a corner.
    • 84' Snodgrass looks to sneak in at the back post again but Grant comes out to claim the deep cross.
    • 83' Vokes again chases a lost-looking-cause to force a throw. It is tossed into the near post and Vokes flicks on to Rodriguez who, under pressure, lifts his volley over the bar. Good chance and he'll be disappointed not to have worked the keeper.
    • 82' Substitution for Leeds: Lees on for the O'Dea.
    • 80' Burnley come again with Treacy, who dinks a ball to Hines at the far post. Leeds clear. Rodriguez continues to pose a threat on the shoulder but Leeds are visibly lifted by that goal.
    • 78' The Leeds fans are in full voice as we head for a grand finale.
    • 76' GOAL. Bang from nothing. Sam picks the ball up down the left, cuts inside and delivers a beautiful ball to the back post, Snodgrass gambles and is duly rewarded when he sneaks in at the far post to prod past Grant.
    • 75' Bartley really has grown into this game and he charges down the left but his delivery is cut out at the near post.
    • 74' Becchio has been pretty redundant since his introduction and a heavy touch from the striker brings a pretty promising move to an end. Burnley break but O'Dea scythes down Vokes to bring that to an end. He is duly booked for a pretty poor challenge.
    • 72' Head injury to O'Dea and there is another break for the physio to attend to the Irish international.
    • 70' Sam looked to be away having stolen the ball from Bartley but the referee brings it back for a handball - a little bit harsh, but Grant hoists the ball into the Leeds box. Vokes backs into his man and attempts a little over-head kick but he can't get the required power and McCarthy claims.
    • 68' Hines looks lively since coming on and he exchanges passes with Vokes but the move breaks down when McCann attempts a little nutmeg.
    • 66' Hines for Stanislas for the home side.
    • 66' Bartley goes down in the box and it looks a penalty from here but the appeals are waved away.
    • 64' Treacy, who has arguably been the stand out performer thus far, collects the ball some thirty yards out and strikes a beautiful effort that looks destined for the top corner but just doesn't dip enough and hits the crossbar.
    • 62' Burnley look a far better outfit than their eighteenth place in the league suggests.
    • 61' Vokes flicks on Grant's long kick but Leeds manage to defend it. Another long throw coming in from Trippier. Vokes basically has the run of the Leeds back four, he flicks on again but with no willing runners, the ball is easily collected by McCarthy.
    • 59' Keogh and McCormack off for Becchio and Nunez.
    • 57' Treacy is over the free-kick. He manages to get it around the wall but McCarthy manages to hold on to it as it dips right in front of him.
    • 56' Bartley wins the ball in the centre of the pitch, and evades a couple of flailing legs before Snodgrass brings him down about twenty yards out.
    • 54' Vokes flicks on Trippier's long throw but with none of his colleagues willing to gamble his header drops the wrong side of the post - would have been a tap-in if anyone got to that.
    • 53' Vokes does well to put pressure on O'Dea down the right flank and wins a corner from what looked like a lost cause.
    • 51' Leeds have more of a purpose to their play this half but the home side's midfield four are working incredibly hard to close down and put pressure on the ball. Leeds have to work the ball all the way back to the keeper.
    • 49' Sam breaks well down the left but just delays his attempted through ball for a fraction of a second too much and that's enough for a Burnley defender to step in and hoist a clearance high up field.
    • 47' Treacy makes an immediate attack on the flank of Connolly but he is ushered off the ball.
    • 46' Leeds get us underway for the second half.
    • - Half-time at Turf Moor.
    • 45+4 McCarthy now denies Treacy from distance - great strike and that was creeping in. He was afforded far too much space in front of the defence, and but for a wonderful McCarthy save Burnley would have had a two goal advantage that their dominance deserved.
    • 45+4 Late chance for Rodriguez. The front man gets to a big clearance before the visiting defensive duo and gallops through on McCarthy but his finish is tame. Easy save.
    • 45+3' Late yellow card for Trippier.
    • 45+2 Free-kick for Leeds following an awkward looking challenge by Edgar, McCormack hits the target but can't get the required power.
    • 45' McCann receives the ball back to goal from Vokes and, in one motion, turns and looks to curl the ball into to the opposite corner and it is a hair's breadth away.
    • 44' Great feet from Sam before he digs out an inviting cross back post to Snodgrass, who, looking to fire the ball back across the goal, can only find the grateful arms of Grant.
    • 42' Snodgrass finds some space down the right but his inswinging cross evades all and sundry to drop past the far post of Grant for a goal-kick.
    • 40' The resulting free-kick hits O'Dea, who has been out with concussion, square in the face and is cleared. There's another short delay for an injury.
    • 38' Duff comes to the aid of Trippier to clear for a corner. Snodgrass delivers the corner but it is too deep. Treacy finds Easton, who is almost bundled over about four times before finally hitting the turf about twenty-five yards out. Free-kick.
    • 36' Leeds win a free-kick just outside the box and left of centre. McCormack strikes, the wall parts but Grant gets a strong hand to it. Very well struck effort.
    • 34' Leeds recycle the ball and win a corner but it could have been so much more.
    • 32' Grant does brilliantly to sweep up there as he clears a ball over the top that looked destined for McCormack. Replays suggest that was a handball outside the box from the keeper. Unlucky Leeds.
    • 30' We're back underway. Leeds break down the right, but an errant pass from Snodgrass brings the move to an end. Burnley break with Rodriguez and his square ball to Bartley looks almost perfectly weighted but the midfielder fails to continue his run for some reason. Chance gone.
    • 28' Austin leaves the pitch to a standing ovation, and looks in some pain. Vokes on to replace him.
    • 26' There's a slight hiatus for an injury to Austin. It looks like he landed quite heavily on his shoulder - possible dislocation.
    • 24' Great play from Treacy, he nutmegs Connolly and is bearing down on McCarthy at a tight angle. He toe pokes the ball towards goal but McCarthy manages to save with his feet.
    • 22' Austin attempts to shrug off a challenge down the right but just over runs the ball. Burnley are playing with a far better tempo.
    • 20' Burnley are playing some really neat, intricate stuff here. Lovely couple of touches from Stanislas there but the move breaks down when Rodriguez attempts to let the ball run through his legs.
    • 18' Duff with a pretty robust challenge on Keogh. Snodgrass delivers but Kisnorbo heads wide having got up early. Half-chance.
    • 16' Stanislas' free-kick never troubles the goal. Should have really done better there.
    • 14' Rodriguez wins a free-kick in a dangerous area for the Clarets - pretty poor from Kisnorbo, who lost the flight of the ball and brought the forward down.
    • 12' Just as Leeds looked to be in the ascendancy, the home side go up the other end and execute the perfect counter-attack.
    • 10' GOOAL!! Great advantage from Scott Mathieson. Trippier's dipping, enticing delivery is powered past McCarthy from close range by Rodriguez. Great header. 1-0.
    • 8' Following that bright start, the home side are beginning to look a little ragged.
    • 6' Connolly's whipped cross is met by the head of Edgar but his clearance drops to Clayton on the edge of the area. He takes a touch to steady himself but his dipping volley is always going over.
    • 4' McCormack leads a break down the left, before cutting inside and threading a ball through to Clayton but his shot from the edge of the area is blocked. Lovely play from McCormack.
    • 3' The visitors defend it well but the Clarets are looking menacing.
    • 2' Jay Rodriguez almost gets his head to a deep cross but a Leeds' head meets it and the home side have an early corner.
    • 1' Scott Mathieson gets proceedings underway.
    • - Turf Moor mourns the passing of an icon with a minute's applause for former Burnley captain and manager Jimmy Adamson who died at the age of 82.
    • 12.40 The players have exchanged handshakes and we're moments away from kick-off.
    • 12.35 Burnley: Grant, Trippier, Duff, Edgar, Easton, Treacy, Bartley, McCann, Stanislas, Austin, Rodriguez. Subs: Stewart, Amougou, Marney, Vokes, Hines /// Leeds: McCarthy, Connolly, Kisnorbo, O'Dea, White, Snodgrass, Howson, Clayton, Sam, Keogh, McCormack. Subs: Cairns, Brown, Becchio, Nunez, Lees.
    • 12.30 On-loan Alex McCarthy will deputise for injured goalkeeper Andy Lonergan for Leeds. Simon Grayson must decide whether to reinstate established centre-back pairing Darren O'Dea and Tom Lees, or stick with Patrick Kisnorbo and Andy O'Brien. Full team news to follow.
    • 12.25 Burnley's Michael Duff could return after recovering from a knee injury, which has kept him out for two months, and Brian Easton, who played a full 90 minutes in the 3-1 loss at Bristol City despite a hip injury, should feature.
    • 12.20 These clubs have played 50 league matches against each other: Leeds have won 26 to Burnley's 14. Burnley – having suffered back-to-back league defeats coming into this fixture - have lost 10 of their last 12 meetings against Leeds.
