    • KICK OFF
    • 45'
      And that's it for the first half at Turf Moor.
    • 90'
    • 90'
      WHAT A CHANCE WANYAMA! The defensive midfielder has a free header in the area from Davis' cross, but he can only head over and that will surely be it for Burnley.
    • 90'
      The Saints just cannot get out of their own half! They are under constant pressure from the hosts and Clyne cannot control a simple pass to feet.
    • 90'
      We're going to have four minutes of stoppage time. Long wastes another Saints chance as he tries a half-volley but sends it well off target.
    • 0'
      And that's all for this afternoon. Hope you've enjoyed following the LIVE action from Turf Moor. I've been Jonathan Davies - farewell until next time!

      Ashley Barnes is the hero as Burnley notch up their third win of the season. Another disappointing day for Southampton who had youngster Jake Hesketh forced off injured, while Dusan Tadic missed a penalty in the second half. It's their fourth defeat on the bounce after such a positive start to the s

      The teams are back out and ready to kick off the second half.
    • 0'
      There wasn't too much to shout about in that first half. The key moment saw the youngster Hesketh's debut end early after picking up an injury following a crunching challenge from Keane. He was booked earlier on for catching Heaton late.
    • 0'
      Dyche will be the happier of the two managers at the break, his side have enjoyed better spells with the ball while Koeman's Southampton are only looking a shadow of the side that started the season so far.

      The teams are out and kick off is fast approaching. Mark Clattenburg referees in the Premier League for the first time in three weeks today. Both sides won the last match he took charge of involving them – Burnley beat Hull 1-0, while Southampton overcame QPR 2-1. He has dished out 83 yellow cards i
    • 0'
      It’s 19th against fifth in the first ever Premier League meeting between the sides. Burnley have had a slow start to the season with just two wins so far, while Southampton came flying out the blocks but are now on a run of four games without a win.

      The teams are in and Sean Dyche names an unchanged Burnley side from last week’s defeat at Queens Park Rangers. Ronald Koeman makes two Southampton changes from the side that were beaten by Manchester United on Monday. Jake Hesketh came off the bench in that game and the 18-year-old is handed his fu

      Good afternoon and welcome to LIVE text commentary from the Barclays Premier League. It's Burnley against Southampton at Turf Moor. I’m Jonathan Davies and I’ll be guiding you through the action.
    • 1'
      Bright start for Burnley. Boyd receives the ball on the right and crosses with his left foot, Ings has a free header but the ball is just too high for him to make a decent contact.
    • 1'
      WE'RE OFF! Southampton get us underway kicking from right to left.
    • 3'
      GOOD TRY FROM INGS! Burnley break forward with urgency and Ings receives the ball on the edge of the area. He tries his luck and it's only just wide of the post.
    • 5'
      Burnley's number 10 will have mixed feelings about this afternoon - he is making his 100th appearance for the Clarets but is a boyhood Southampton fan!
    • 6'
      It has been a very bright start from the hosts and Sean Dyche will be very impressed. His side have kept the ball well and look very dangerous going forward.
    • 8'
      Southampton have their first sight on goal. A long diagonal ball is cushioned by Pelle for Hesketh, but he catches the effort wrong and sends it spinning into the air and the grateful arms of Heaton.
    • 10'
      This is the 51st meeting between the sides who share 18 wins apiece in the history of the fixture. Southampton have won the last two meetings and lost just one of their last six visits to Turf Moor.
    • 12'
      Their meetings in the top flight have also been shared equally. They have four wins each from the 13 match-ups, so both sides are looking to move ahead in the record books today.
    • 14'
      Hearts were in Burnley fans' mouths there after Heaton's lacklustre clearance came straight back from a Southampton head, but Pelle couldn't capitalise as he was in an offside position.
    • 15'
      Trippier gets forward down the right hand side and delivers a very dangerous cross to the far post, but it evades everybody and Southampton can relax.
    • 17'
      J. Hesketh goes into the referee's book.
    • 17'
      Hesketh is the first player into the referee's notebook for catching Heaton late when going for the loose ball. That was a little bit of inexperience there from the 18-year-old as it wasn't really his to be won.
    • 19'
      Southampton aren't in the greatest of form coming into this game. They have lost their last three in the league, albeit they were against Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United.
    • 21'
      A dangerous cross from the right is deep into the Burnley box, but Burnley are able to scramble the ball away. They're not out of trouble just yet as the Saints now have a throw.
    • 22'
      Southampton have a corner on the left and they play it short between Tadic and Davis before laying it off for Bertrand. The left back misses the target by quite a distance in the end though.
    • 24'
      Elsewhere in the Premier League so far, Chelsea are leading Hull by a goal to nil. Sunderland are beating West Ham by the same scoreline, while Crystal Palace and Stoke are level at 1-1.
    • 26'
      GREAT SAVE FROM FORSTER! Terrific reflexes from the England keeper after a deep Burnley cross deflects towards goal off Clyne. After a goalmouth scramble, the referee eventually blows for a free kick.
    • 28'
      Worrying signs for Southampton here. Hesketh has just hobbled to the sideline after a crunching challenge with Keane. He'll be eager to get back on, it doesn't look too good at the moment though.
    • 30'
      The 18-year-old is back on the field for now though he appears to still be struggling after that knock. There is activity on the Saints bench and his full debut could be cut short.
    • 32'
      SI J. Ward-Prowse SO J. Hesketh
    • 32'
      J. Ward-Prowse enters play, replacing J. Hesketh.
    • 32'
      A crestfallen Hesketh cannot continue and he limps off to be replaced by James Ward-Prowse. It's a shame for the youngster, but he'll be back for certain.
    • 35'
      Burnley are the joint lowest scorers in the Premier League this season with just 10 goals. They have a free kick in a decent position though - 25 yards from goal and dead central.
    • 37'
      End-to-end stuff here at Turf Moor. Southampton work the ball to Tadic in the area and he tries to lay it off for Ward-Prowse, who isn't on his wave length and the ball is cleared. Burnley launch the counter attack with Ings embarking on a strong run but he is eventually snuffed out by the defence.
    • 39'
      S. Mané receives a yellow card.
    • 39'
      GOOD DEFENDING FROM SHACKELL! Bertrand delivers a low ball across the area for Mane, but the Burnley skipper gets there first and is awarded a free kick after being caught late.
    • 41'
      Alderweireld makes a mistake and Burnley look to pounce on the counter but the referee gets in the way and the chance fizzles out.
    • 44'
      Mane almost got in behind there. Pelle held the ball up on the right hand side and looked to find the winger with a diagonal ball, but Burnley clear well.
    • 45'
      We're going to have two minutes of added time here.
    • 46'
      Burnley get us back underway!
    • 48'
      It almost opened up for Boyd there. Burnley's record signing found himself in space and nearly broke into the box before Bertrand recovered to clear the danger.
    • 50'
      Boyd has been a very strong link for the hosts this afternoon. He gets the better of Bertrand again and his cross finds Arfield at the far post, but Clyne makes a crucial block and the ball goes behind for a corner.
    • 52'
      The defence sends a long ball over the top looking for Ings, who puts lot of pressure on Fonte. The Saints skipper keeps cool though and is able to clear.
    • 54'
      Goalless so far and it's nothing like the last meeting between the sides. It came in the third round of the FA Cup back in January when Southampton edged a seven-goal thriller at St. Mary's.
    • 56'
      It's becoming a second half of unforced errors from the visitors. Bertrand fails to control a simple pass to feet along the back line, and cannot prevent the ball from going out for a throw-in.
    • 58'
      That's more like the Southampton we know and love! They put together a neat one-touch move around the edge of the area, but Mane cannot provide the finish on this occasion.
    • 60'
      Penalty saved by T. Heaton!
    • 60'
      PENALTY TO SOUTHAMPTON! Bertrand is one-on-one with Boyd and the Burnley man catches the full back as he skips past him. Tadic will take the kick... GREAT SAVE BY HEATON!! It's not the best penalty in the world but the Burnley keeper gets down well to his left to push the ball away.
    • 61'
      Tadic tries his luck again from outside the area after finding himself with too much space, he drill the ball just wide of the post this time though.
    • 63'
      Burnley have only won two of their last 14 matches against Southampton and they would have feared the worst when the penalty was given there. It could be their day this afternoon though after that save.
    • 65'
      Pelle receives the ball on the edge of the area and the visitors try to find a way through, but Burnley are stubborn as a unit and scramble it away.
    • 67'
      GOOD SAVE FROM FORSTER! Ings works some space for himself on the edge of the box and unleashes a fierce left-footed effort, but the Saints stopper gets down well to beat the ball away.
    • 69'
      Dangerous times for Burnley! A good ball into the area from Clyne just runs away from Pelle, and Burnley defend strongly to deny Mane and Bertrand from getting shots on goal.
    • 71'
      We're into the final 20 minutes at Turf Moor and we could be in for an exciting finish here. Ings is looking a constant threat going forward for the hosts, while Southampton are starting to offer more in attack.
    • 73'
      G A. Barnes Assist J. Hesketh
    • 73'
      The assist came from D. Ings.
    • 73'
      GOAL TO BURNLEY - ASHLEY BARNES!!!!! The hosts have the breakthrough!! Ings closes Clyne down quickly to deflect his clearance and the ball breaks kindly for Barnes, before his shot deflects off Alderweireld and wrong-foots Forster.
    • 74'
      SI D. Lafferty SO J. Hesketh
    • 74'
      B. Mee is replaced with D. Lafferty.
    • 74'
      Burnley make their first change of the day almost immediately after the goal. Daniel Lafferty is coming on for his first game of the season, with Mee the man to make place.
    • 75'
      CHANCE FOR FONTE! The Southampton captain towered above the defence to send a header towards goal, but it's straight at Heaton who gratefully gathers. Either side of him and it was 1-1.
    • 77'
      Burnley have conceded the most headed goals in the Premier League so far this season, and they should have gone into double figures there as Fonte should have done better with that effort.
    • 78'
      SI S. Long SO J. Hesketh
    • 78'
      S. Long comes on for S. Mané.
    • 78'
      An attacking change from Southampton. Shane Long is sent on by Koeman to try and make an impact, with a very poor Mane making way.
    • 80'
      Just 10 minutes to go at Turf Moor and Southampton are looking like they could rue that Tadic penalty miss at the moment. Ironically, the Saints have yet to drop points this season from scoring first.
    • 82'
      Southampton have a free kick on the edge of the box after Lafferty puts in a strong challenge on Long. Ward-Prowse tries his luck but sends the effort wide of the post.
    • 83'
      G. Boyd is cautioned by the referee.
    • 83'
      G. Pellè receives a yellow card.
    • 83'
      Two bookings here as Boyd and Pelle pick up a yellow card. The Burnley man is taking his time leaving the field injured, and Southampton's top scorer tries to help him on his way but a little too aggressively for Mr. Clattenburg's liking.
    • 85'
      If the current scores stay as they are then Burnley fans will be celebrating being out of the relegation zone this evening.
    • 87'
      WHISKERS AWAY FROM CLYNE! It was a brilliant effort from the right back. He received the ball on the edge of the area and tried his luck, but it just fizzed wide of the far post.
    • 89'
      Southampton need to get the ball forward! They have a minute plus stoppage time to find an equaliser, otherwise it will be five games without a win and a fourth straight defeat.
    • 90'
      There has been some wonderful defending from Burnley today. Southampton look to break forward and Bertrand finds Pelle on the edge of the area, but Jones is on him immediately to snuff out the danger and bring the ball away.
