Burnley edges closer to Premier League survival with nervy victory over Brentford

Posted : 17 March 2024

In a crucial match for their Premier League survival hopes, Burnley secured a tense victory over 10-man Brentford at Turf Moor. Jacob Bruun Larsen's early penalty, awarded via VAR after Sergio Reguilon's foul on Vitinho, set the tone for the match, with Brentford reduced to 10 men following Reguilon's dismissal.


Despite Brentford's resilience, Arijanet Muric's crucial goal-line clearance and fine saves kept Burnley ahead. David Datro Fofana's goal midway through the second half doubled Burnley's lead, but Brentford's Kristoffer Ajer's late header ensured a nervy finish for the hosts.


Vincent Kompany praised his team's determination to grind out the result, acknowledging the importance of converting performances into points as Burnley continues their battle against relegation. With this win, Burnley remains eight points adrift of safety with nine matches remaining, while Brentford's defeat adds pressure as they aim to avoid being dragged into a relegation battle.
