Burnley Player Ratings vs Cardiff City: Here’s how the Clarets fared
Burnley continued their recent surge in form by picking up another victory against Cardiff City. The Clarets triumphed 2-1 on the night and now move to 12th place on the table. Johann Berg Gudmundsson opened the scoring for Sean Dyche’s men before Joshy Murphy struck back in just 9 minutes.
Thanks to striker Sam Vokes, as he slotted it into the net to hand Burnley all three points. Sean Dyche will be relieved and glad to see a strong response from his side after failing to make it to the Europa League group stage.
Burnley Player Ratings
Joe Hart (8/10)
Despite conceding a goal, Hart was excellent in goal and made a number of fine saves to ensure three points.
Matthew Lowton (7/10)
A good performance from Lowton but he did give away a couple of clumsy fouls and picked up a yellow in the process.
James Tarkowski (6/10)
Was unfortunate to succumb to an injury. Tarkowski made a good start to the game but was taken off for Kevin Long.
Ben Mee (7/10)
It was a no-nonsense performance from Ben Mee who once again proved his worth in this side.
Charlie Taylor (6/10)
Taylor was defensively impressive but was unable to offer much going forward.
Berg Gudmundsson (8/10)
The Iceland international capped off another superb performance with a goal and an assist. He is proving to be a brilliant asset to this Burnley side.
Jack Cork (6/10)
Cork was impressive with his distribution but failed to offer defensive cover on a number of occasions.
Ashley Westwood (7/10)
A dominant performance from Westwood who was everywhere on the field. He also picked up an assist on the night.
Aaron Lennon (5/10)
Not the best performance from the veteran winger. Lennon was often predictable and didn’t offer much going forward.
Matej Vydra (5/10)
Burnley’s new signing was largely ineffective throughout the game. He failed to threaten the backline.
Sam Vokes (7/10)
Vokes had his good and bad moments in the game, but he ultimately scored the winning goal.
Kevin Long (7/10)
Long deputised well in the absence of James Tarkowski. He has definitely assured his manager that he is capable of offering cover.
Chris Wood (6/10)
Wood wasn’t in sync with the game and looked uncomfortable on the ball. He also gave away possession on a couple of occasions.
