Burnley 4 Peterborough United 2

By Burnley FC
January 4 2020

Jay Rodriguez bridged an eight-year gap to spearhead the Clarets’ march into the fourth round of the FA Cup.

 A brilliant solo effort against Peterborough in February, 2012 lit up Turf Moor as Rodriguez earned the Clarets a Championship point towards the end of his first Burnley stay.

 And he once more punished the Posh in a first FA Cup meeting between the sides with two goals in a comfortable win which booked Sean Dyche’s men a place in Monday night’s draw for the last 32.

 Eric Pieters and Jeff Hendrick also got themselves on the scoresheet as the League One's leading scorers were always kept at arm’s length – despite twice cutting back a three-goal deficit.
 And after a tough run over Christmas this was just the tonic the Clarets needed as they went into round four for the fourth time in five years.

 Dyche made eight changes to the side that had kicked off the new year against Aston Villa but this was still very much a senior line-up.

 And the Clarets made their superiority tell from the start as they threatened to put the tie to bed inside the first quarter of an hour.
