But all that changed when Lennie brought on Paul Parry and Andy Campbell. Parry was on the bench today for the returning Willie Boland. Also on the bench was Aaran Lee Barret, where was Neil Alexander?
Parry replaced Gareth Whalley on 71 mins and soon after Campbell came on for Earnie.
Campbells first contribution to the game was to win a penalty. Campbell controlled Parry's cross only to be untidily challenged in the box and Burnley had given away a sloppy penalty.
Immediately Richard Langley assumed responsibility and after several minutes of fussing over the flatness of the penalty spot Langley cooly despatched the kick.
1 - 0 to City and at last there was life in the game.
Burnley had to attack and their first move after the goal came to nothing in the City box but a swift ball out to Parry who galloped down the left, his ball to Robinson continued the move and Robinson switched play to the opposite side of the pitch with a perfectly weighted ball for Andy Campbell to knock back across the helpless keeper and into the corner of the net.
It was a faster and more destructive counter attack than those carried out by Palace last week.
Well done Parry and Campbell and of course Lennie who made the changes.
After that City could have scored another three with a flurry of chances. The best of which Parry grazed the angle and Campbell hit over the bar.
Roll on Preston who were spanked 5 - 1 today at Derby. Let's finish the season on a high.
