Burnley 0-1 Sheff Utd

Iffy Onuora's first goal for Sheffield United secured his side's first league win at Turf Moor since 1974 and left Burnley still without a point this season.

The summer signing from Gillingham struck in the 35th minute to secure the Blades' first victory of the season and left the Clarets still rooted to the bottom of Division One.

Onuora was set up on the edge of the area and his low shot took a wicked deflection to leave Burnley goalkeeper Nikolaos Michopoulos stranded.

The result was particularly satisfying for United boss Neil Warnock, who had been involved in a war of words with Burnley counterpart Stan Ternent last season.

Warnock had been accused of sending a spy to listen to Burnley's half-time teamtalk.

Burnley, who were without Steve Davis and Tony Grant after they failed late fitness tests, suffered another blow when Lee Briscoe was forced off to be replaced by Graham Branch.

Clarets boss Stan Ternent made another change at the break, replacing Paul Weller with Lenny Johnrose, but his side fared little better in the second half.

Chances were few and far between, with Rob Kozluk forced to try his luck with an ambitious 35-yard strike which failed to hit the target.

Burnley gradually became more threatening as their desperation grew and Kenny was called into action to keep out Alan Moore's shot and he produced a superb save to deny Johnrose.

United were not just content to sit back though, and Michael Tonge tested Michopoulos before Steve Yates headed wide from John McGovern's corner.

Burnley pressed forward in search of an equaliser but created few clearcut chances and when they did they were frustrated by Paddy Kenny once again as he kept out Glen Little's shot from the left.

Little had the last chance of the match and almost snatched a point for the Clarets but once again Kenny stood firm to keep out his right-foot shot in the third minute of injury time.


Burnley: Michopoulos, West, McGregor, Cox, Briscoe, Ian Moore, Weller, Cook, Little, Taylor, Alan Moore. Subs: Payton, Blake, Papadopoulos, Branch, Lenny Johnrose, Lenny Johnrose.

Sheff Utd: Kenny, Kozluk, Yates, Murphy, Ullathorne, McGovern, McCall, Tonge, Jagielka, Asaba, Onuora. Subs: Ndlovu, Allison, Doane, Smith, Montgomery.

Referee: R Pearson (Co Durham).
