Burnley 2-2 West Brom: Baggies come from behind to rescue a point at Turf Moor

West Brom striker Brown Ideye rescued a point for the visitors, after Burnley once again threw away a two-goal lead, reports BBC Sport.

The Clarets took the lead 11 minutes into the game, with Ashley Barnes heading home from close range, following a well-worked move involving the impressive Burnley striker Danny Ings.

And minutes after the half-hour mark, Ings went from creator to goalscorer. A whipped ball into the middle was well-met by Ings, whose header beat Albion ‘keeper Ben Foster to double Burnley’s lead.

But Sean Dyche’s side couldn’t maintain their two-goal advantage until the break. West Brom midfielder Chris Brunt scored on the stroke of half-time to halve the Baggies’ deficit.

Brown Ideye then sealed the comeback midway in the second-half to level the game for Tony Pulis’ side. The record-signing scored an impressive header to make it 2-2.

Burnley couldn’t find a winning goal, and West Brom failed to go ahead in the last 25 minutes too, so they both took a share of the spoils at Turf Moor.
