Burnley took a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Swansea City, making it ten league games on the trot without a win.
The Clarets still set as "best of the rest" outside of the league's top six, but it is starting to look like another side punching above their weight in the season's first half only to come back down to Earth in the second. Once again, the defense was their strong suit, and kept them in the game until the end, but the attack was poor by their conservative standards. What little threat they had came through the middle, with Aaron Lennon and Johann Berg Gudmundsson seeing very little activity on the outside. Matt Taylor put in another fine shift, shutting down Swansea's right flank, but his attempted crosses lacked quality as Burnley would finish without a single shot on target. Stephen Ward made the squad for the first time after a long injury spell and it will be interesting to monitor if or when Dyche will start him over Taylor. Feb 10 - 12:12 PM
