Burnley 1, Ipswich Town 1 – full analysis in tonight's Green 'Un

Pablo Counago's first ever away goal for Ipswich Town could not coincide with a victory for Joe Royle's Blues against Burnley at Turf Moor today.

The visitors from Suffolk had to be content with a draw, but at least they extended their unbeaten run in league and cup to eight matches.

Counago got his 14th goal of the season for the Blues when he smashed home from close range in the 23rd minute following a corner by Darren Ambrose.

Not long after, former Celta Vigo man Counago had to go off due to a head cut. He did not return and Darren Bent took his place.

In the second half Ipswich brought on Matt Richards for his league debut and took off Ambrose as they switched from a 4-4-2 to a 3-5-2 formation.
