Sky Sports expert and former Burnley goalkeeper Paul Robinson felt prior to begin that Ashley Barnes could be the distinction for Burnley versus Leeds United.

And the straw man was unfortunate not to have leveled ball game line simply after the quarter hour when he turned and fired into the roof of the web, just to see referee Rob Jones blow for a nasty on Leeds keeper Illan Meslier as he faltered under pressure from Ben Mee.

Goals have been a battle for Sean Dyche’s group this season however Ashley Barnes was on the rating sheet last time out against Wolves and on another day could’ve easily seen his strike stand versus Marcelo Bielsa’s team.

Robinson stated before the video game that he has actually been surprised by Burnley’s lack of firepower, but feels that Burnley’s No. 10 is a gamer that will constantly be a danger.

” Barnes can cause anybody a problem,” stated Robinson on Sky Sports. “Having had fun with him and understanding the type of striker that he is, he’s a real insect for opposition.

” He never stops running, he closes opposition down, he’ll try and get his group fouls, challenge for balls.

” He will win totally free kicks, corners and he’s just constantly on protectors’ shoulders and he’s a real issues – and to opt for that, he’ll score the goals.

” You can see the reliance that Sean Dyche has on him, due to the fact that whenever there’s an issue scoring he always relies on Ashley Barnes.

” You get 150% out of him each and every single day, he enjoys scoring goals and they truth they have actually not scored as many as would’ve liked – he’ll be taking it personally.”

” They create a lot of opportunities specifically from set plays, so to see them battling with their objective scoring and objective scoring creativity (is unusual.

” I spoke with him (Dyche) before the video game today at length and he said they just can’t put their finger on what’s occurred with the strikers.

” He’s got Jay Rodriguez who hasn’t scored in 16 appearances – the worst run of his profession.

” He said this week they have actually done shooting continuously and Wood and Barnes have been scoring left, right and centre.

” He truly could not put his finger on what the issue was.”
