Burnley player Danny Ings stole the show against Stoke City on Saturday, scoring two goals in two minutes for Sean Dyche’s men.
Ings’ quick-fire double ensured Burnley won their first away game of the season and climbed off the bottom of the Premier League table; and while there is still a very long way to go yesterday’s visitors to the Britannia Stadium are showing positive signs heading into the festive period.
Jonathan Walters halved the deficit just after the half-hour mark but it proved to be a mere consolation as Burnley held out to take a much needed three points.
Mark Hughes will be disappointed that Stoke returned after the international break to a defeat and there are questions to be asked as to how a much heralded defence was breeched twice in such quick succession. But Burnley must be congratulated, and Ings in particular.
