90 + 2: Free kick on the edge of the box, Greenwood takes, whips it over the bar. He’s actually missed one.

90: But the damage is clearly done, breathtaking second half display from Leeds

81: Greenwood - looking for a hat-trick - sees an effort deflected just wide.

GOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAALLLL

78: Greenwood takes - no Summerville to pester him this time - blasts his effort home to become top scorer for the season.

ANOTHER LEEDS PENALTY

77: Greenwood clattered to the ground.

GOOOOOAAAAAAAALLL

75: Summerville gets his goal!! He is so fast. Shackleton with a lovely through ball. Summerville is rapid and beats keeper Richter to the pass and then brilliantly lifts the ball over Richter and a defender to leave him with an open goal. Super goal from a young man who looks a seriously good player.

71: A mad game. Thompson nets from a scramble at a corner.

GOOOOOAAAAAAALLLL!!!

68: We got there in the end and Greenwood gets his goal, slams the spot kick into the bottom left corner. 3-1.

66: Summerville uses his lightning pace to beat the keeper to a McCarron through ball. Summerville and Greenwood both want to take it. Cresswell comes over to get involved. Summerville will not go away and is booked. Strange scenes.

Chances at both ends

62: Greenwood turns and smashes the ball wide from inside the box. Burnley come again but Casilla produces a good save. From another Clarets attack, Drameh produces an excellent tackle. Costelloe booked for Burnley for whom Burton was yellow carded earlier too.

OFF THE BAR - GREENWOOD

60: So close. Flicked header clips the bar. Burnley clear

60: Casey shot from a set piece trickles just wide. Deflected.

58: Free kick deflected to Gomez who fires past Casilla, not much he could do about that. 2-1.

57: For Casey, dangerous free kick on the edge of the box.
