VIDEO: Burnley fans invent own 'Toure chant' to laud strike duo

The Lancashire side's supporters were seen literally singing the praises of Danny Ings and Sam Vokes after a routine 3-0 win at Charlton at the weekend.

Burnley fans have had plenty to cheer this season. Billed as little more than mid-table fodder at the start of the season, the Lancashire outfit have stunned everyone by becoming one of the favourites for automatic promotion. 

They currently occupy second place in the Championship and are on course for a return to the Premier League after their relegation in 2010 during an inaugural season at that level for the Clarets.

Manager Sean Dyche has received the majority of the plaudits after masterminding his side's remarkable rise to the top two but it is the attacking partnership of Danny Ings and Sam Vokes which has ultimately left Burnley on the cusp of another momentous achievement.

The duo have netted 46 goals between them in all competitions and 40 together in the league, which amounts to well over half of the Clarets' domestic tally of 64.

And now the Burnley fans have revelled in Ings and Vokes form, having been recorded chanting their talismans names en route home from the comprehensive 3-0 win at Charlton Athletic last weekend.

The chant derives from Manchester City supporters' own show of faith to star man Yaya Toure and his brother Kolo Toure, formerly a City player.

City's own "Yaya, Yaya Yaya, Yaya Yaya Toure. Kolo, Kolo Kolo, Kolo, Kolo Toure," is replaced by "Danny, Danny Danny, Danny Danny Ingsy. Vokesy, Vokesy, Vokesy, Vokesy, Vokesy Vokesy Vokesy.
