Match Report: Derby 1 Burnley 2
Charlie Austin struck twice in a 2-1 win to give Burnley their first npower Championship victory of the season and end Derby's 100 per cent start in the league.Burnley took the lead in the 49th minute when Treacy got to the byline and cut the ball back for Austin, who steadied himself with a touch before firing past Frank Fielding from six yards out.Clough's side came close to an equalising goal on two occasions. Ben Davies beat Jensen with a 10-yard shot but the ball was cleared off the line by Ben Mee. Davies was involved again shortly afterwards when his inswinging corner eluded everyone in the box and had to be hacked off the line once more by a Burnley defender.The Clarets then went straight down the other end and Treacy hit the crossbar with a shot from near the penalty spot on the hour.Burnley had not kept a clean sheet in the league for 15 matches and some sloppy defending midway through the second half ensured that was extended to 16 games. Bryson got to the byline after collecting the ball from John Brayford's throw-in and his driven cross was poked home by Robinson from inside the six-yard area.However, the Rams were not level for long. A long-range shot from Wallace was not properly dealt with by Fielding, who could only push the ball back out to Austin and he bagged his second goal off the game.
