Southampton 1 Burnley 2
By Burnley FC
February 15 2020
Not even Storm Dennis could blow the Clarets off course as Matej Vydra proved the Clarets’ unlikely hero.
Vydra hadn’t found the net since September, 2018 but came off the bench to score a stunning winner which lifted Burnley into the top half of the table on the back of a third victory in four games.
The Czech international has had a lean time of it as the fourth man in the striking pecking order.
But with Ashley Barnes not yet fully recovered from hernia surgery and Chris Wood succumbing to an early injury he was needed at wind and rain-lashed St Mary’s Stadium.
And cometh the hour, cometh the man as Vydra crashed home an unstoppable volley with 60 minutes gone to stop Danny Ings taking the headlines and keep the Clarets’ remarkable recovery going with a first double over the Saints since 1947.
With former players of both clubs facing their ex-employers it seemed inevitable at least one would play a key part.
