Highlights - Burnley 1-0 Nottm Forest

Burnley 1-0 Nottm Forest

Burnley   1 - 0   Nott'm Forest

Burnley's quest for an immediate return to the Premier League got off to a good start with a win over fellow pre-season promotion favourites Nottingham Forest.

Chris Iwelumo's diving header from Wade Elliott's cross gave the home side the lead just before half-time.

The goal was reward for Burnley edging the first half, during which Forest's Rob Earnshaw also struck a post.

Dexter Blackstock and Nathan Tyson squandered good second-half chances for Forest as Burnley held on for the win.

Clarets manager Brian Laws was able to field seven of the players who finished last season's Premier League campaign with a 4-2 victory over Tottenham.

But it was one of their summer recruits, former Wolves striker Iwelumo who put them ahead right at the end of a first half that they had narrowly shaded. Elliott's accurate right-wing cross made it impossible for the Scotland international to miss and he made no mistake with a diving header.

Earlier, Earnshaw had hit the post for the visitors after exchanging passes with fellow striker Blackstock.

Welsh striker Earnshaw was involved again in the second half, creating space and slipping in Tyson, but with the goal at his mercy the forward could only fire wide.

Davies' men continued to push and Blackstock should have done better when he headed Chris Gunter's cross over the bar.

The result gives Burnley their first opening-day victory in three seasons and Laws only his fourth win in 21 games as Clarets manager.

But Forest, with on-loan Chelsea full-back Ryan Bertrand the only new addition to their side, carry over the poor away record that cost them promotion last season - they have now picked up only two points on the road since a victory at West Brom on 8 January.
