Cardiff 1-2 Burnley live score and goal updates from Premier League clash

Cardiff will be desperate to get their first win of the season against Burnley on Sunday.

It has been a tricky return to the Premier League for Neil Warnock’s men who have just two points from their opening six games.

But a win in this one will take them out of the relegation zone – at the expense of Burnley.

Sean Dyche’s men climbed out of the bottom three last weekend with their first win of the campaign against Bournemouth.

Follow all the action from the clash in south Wales below. Kick-off is at 4pm (BST).

Cardiff: Etheridge; Ecuele-Manga, Morrison, Bamba, Cunningham; Camarasa, Arter, Ralls, Murphy; Paterson; Zohore

Burnley: Hart; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Lennon, Cork, Westwood, Gudmundsson; Vydra, Vokes

Dyche will be delighted with the team spirit displayed by his side to overcome the early season adversity. Today he’ll be particularly pleased with the yield of Vokes, who has been feeding off scraps today and provided the goods with perfect timing.

Great work down the right-hand side by Manga, his interchange with Camarasa creates space for the right-back to fizz in a low cross and set up Murphy.

Burnley have never won a Premier League away game against a promoted side before, losing five and drawing six of their 11 such games. Interesting.

Westwood’s ball floated over to the back stick and there may be questions as to why Gudmundsson was able to meet it first, but the main question will be how it crept in past Etheridge as he was unable to shuffle over and make the save!

GOAL! Gudmundsson has done it for Burnley! His header at the back post, sneaks past Etheridge at his near post and gives Burnley a totally undeserved lead from a soft goal!

Brief counter-attacking situation for Burnley, but the ball runs out as Vydra is unable to latch onto a forward pass.
46 minsminute by minute

The second half has kicked off, no changes for either side and nothing major to report during the first minute or so.

Burnley will feel lucky to go in level at half-time. Cardiff have had considerable opportunities with Murphy, Patterson, Zohore and a penalty shout. Constrastingly, one of Burnley’s first-half highlights was Gudmundsson getting on the ball and cutting inside, despite it coming to nothing Burnley look a better team the more he is involved. Burnley have managed just 56% passing accuracy so far, the lowest recorded in the Premier League this season. Second-half coming right up!

Cardiff will be disappointed they were unable to grab a goal following a positive first-half display. They’ve looked hungrier for the points, winning 56% of duels, a great deal of second balls and playing over double the amount of crosses into the box. Burnley shown their rigidity but little else in the opening 45, with no shots on goal for the away side and just one attempt in total. Cardiff managed 10 shots with two on target.

We are into added time after added time now, as Cardiff win another set-piece and Dyche bemoans the extension. Burnley have held on though as the free-kick amounts to nothing.

Corner for Cardiff on the stroke of half-time, the ball bounces round the box presenting a series of half-chances and penalty claims, but still no joy for the home side!

Booking for Ashley Westwood as a reckless challenge presents another set-piece opportunity for Cardiff.
