Late goals from Tyrone Mears and Jack Cork gave Burnley a 2-1 victory over Derby County in front of the Sky Sports cameras at Turf Moor. A deflected Luke Moore effort had given The Rams the lead in the first half, somewhat against the run of play, and they were defending solidly limiting the home side to long range efforts going into the last ten minutes. Former Ram Mears curled home a freekick from just outside the area and Cork then flicked home a header from close range to complete a dramatic turnaround.

Nigel Clough made three changes to the side with Gareth Roberts suspended, Kris Commons suffering from an illness and Dean Leacock named amongst the substitutes and being replaced by Dean Moxey, James Bailey and Shaun Barker respectively. Burnley started the brighter of the two sides and Chris Iwelumo had the first effort of the match on three minutes when he got his head to a Ross Wallace cross but the striker couldn`t direct his effort on target. Robbie Savage found Tomasz Cywka at the other end but he was robbed by Clarke Carlisle as he set himself to shoot.

Alberto Bueno was replaced by Ben Pringle on fifteen minutes with a hamstring injury and Carlisle threatened at the other end when he met a Dean Marney corner but his effort was straight at Frank Fielding who gathered easily. Ben Pringle won the ball on twenty minutes and fed Luke Moore who turned and, with the help of a deflection, fired into the top corner to give his side the lead with their first real effort of the match. Burnley were enjoying the territorial advantage but The Rams were defending solidly and not allowing them to create any chances as they held firm. Jay Rodriguez had the only effort of note before the halftime break but Fielding kept out his effort at the near post with a sharp reflex save as his side took the lead into the break.

Burnley upped the pressure at the start of the second period but Derby were still defending in numbers at the back with Fielding largely untroubled. As the home side continued to dominate Nigel Clough made a tactical change bringing on Dean Leacock in place of Stephen Pearson allowing John Brayford to move to rightback with Paul Green pushing into midfield. Derby were restricting Burnley to long range efforts with Marney not far away from outside the area and Wallace hitting the woodwork from twenty-five yards.

Iwelumo headed harmlessly over the top from a deep cross and Moore nearly capitalised on a slip by Andre Bikey but Lee Grant was off his line quickly to smother the ball. A harshly awarded freekick with eight minutes to go gave Burnley a great opportunity and Tyrone Mears stepped up and curled home a great effort to level the scores with a goal that had been coming for the home side. In the delay before the freekick was taken there was a return for Chris Porter as he came on to replace Luke Moore and he got his head to a corner straight down the other end but his effort was narrowly off target.

Burnley`s tails were up and Jack Cork was denied by a fine save from Fielding with a header from close range but the Derby keeper could do nothing in the last minute as he flicked a superb header across goal and into the far corner to complete the comeback. Derby mounted a late response with James Bailey being denied by Lee Grant`s sharp save but the rebound was cleared to safety and it was too little to late as Burnley claimed all three points.
