PHOTOS: Burnley's worst moments of 2014

It has been a superb 2014 for Burnley, but it hasn't been without its low points.

2014 brought unexpected success for Burnley, who were promoted from the Championship and have shown the fighting spirit they'll need to fight for Premier League survival.

We round up the toughest times in 2014 for the Burnley faithful.

Burnley 0-1 Sheffield Wednesday (26 August, 2014)

West Bromwich Albion 4-0 Burnley (28 September, 2014)
