Nugent header denies Potters win

Stoke went ahead on 23 minutes from a trademark Rory Delap long
throw, which Mamade Sidebe flicked on for Tuncay to head in from
eight yards out. Burnley hit back and Chris Eagles delivered a deep
cross to Paterson at the back post in the 39th minute but the
Northern Ireland striker didn’t connect well and his shot went into
the side-netting. But the Clarets did equalise on 52 minutes when
Paterson delivered a superb cross from the right and Nugent was the
first to react and left Thomas Sorensen stranded with a powerful
header – his sixth goal for the club. Paterson then hit a rasping
cross which Sorensen saved. And Eagles hit a superb 35-yard shot
which Sorensen again stopped and the midfielder fired wide soon
after. In the last minute Tyrone Mears cut the ball back to Eagles
but he blazed over as the two sides shared the spoils. Burnley move
up one place to 18th on 24 points, while Stoke stay 11th with 35
points.
