Burnley earn a point

12:37 pm on 11 March 2010

Burnley remain in the English Premier League football relegation zone after a 1-all draw at home to Stoke City, their first point in five games.

Mid-table Stoke went ahead with yet another goal from their long throw-in routine, Tuncay Sunli getting the finishing touch to Rory Delap's aerial delivery.

David Nugent's header put Burnley level after 52 minutes but the hosts could not find the winner that would have lifted them out of the bottom three.

Burnley are third from bottom with 24 points from 29 games, behind Wolverhampton Wanderers on goal difference.
