Match Preview

Striker problems for Howe Burnley boss Eddie Howe will be without a trio of strikers when his side host Crystal Palace. Steven Thompson has undergone surgery on a groin problem and looks set to be sidelined until next month. With Martin Paterson out with a thigh injury and youngster Wes Fletcher nursing an ankle knock, Howe has seen his attacking options vastly reduced. The visit of the Eagles will be the Clarets` first home game for a month on Saturday as they bid to edge closer to a coveted top-six finish. Last weekend`s 2-1 victory at neighbours Preston underlined the pedigree of Howe`s men, and they are aiming for another three points at Palace`s expense. "We want to continue this run," said Howe. Palace boss Dougie Freedman will hand Julian Speroni a late fitness test before naming his squad. The 31-year-old goalkeeper suffered a slight groin injury during the closing stages of last weekend's 3-3 draw with Reading, although the Eagles boss is confident a week`s worth of rest will have done his first-choice shot-stopper good. Lewis Price, who arrived at the club from Derby in the summer, will make his debut if Speroni fails to recover in time. Striker Jermaine Easter will be hoping for a starting role after stepping off the bench to earn his side a point against the Royals, but midfielder Alex Marrow is unlikely to feature despite returning to light training following an ankle injury. Left-back Matty Parsons has joined Barnet on a month's loan, while fellow full-back Lee Hills remains a long-term absentee with a knee problem.

Match Report

Rodriguez rocket lifts Clarets Jay Rodriguez struck a third-minute winner to maintain Burnley`s play-off push and put a dent in Crystal Palace`s survival bid. The England Under-21 striker scored his 10th goal of the season with a superb long-range strike to edge the Clarets closer to the top six and condemn Palace to their 14th away defeat of the season. Eddie Howe`s men could have led inside the second minute when winger Ross Wallace collected possession 25 yards from goal and drove a left-foot shot just wide. Moments later Burnley struck the decisive blow when Rodriguez was afforded the time and space to strike a right-foot shot into the top left-hand corner from 25 yards. Palace sought to find an immediate riposte but David Wright fired narrowly over the crossbar from distance and midfielder Darren Ambrose then saw a shot blocked by Clarets defender Michael Duff. Wallace then fired over from 20 yards as both sides looked threatening when on the attack. Rodriguez should have doubled his tally in the 14th minute when he headed wide and and three minutes later Wallace wasted a fine opening when he blazed over the crossbar from just six yards. Steffen Iversen then tried his luck from 12 yards in the 20th minute but Burnley defender Tyrone Mears cleared the danger. Burnley defender Daniel Fox had a shot blocked by Patrick McCarthy and Rodriguez shot over the crossbar as the hosts looked to make their dominance pay. They created another fine opening in the 29th minute when an inswinging corner from Wallace was met by Rodriguez but his shot from 12 yards flew over the crossbar. In the 38th minute Jack Cork - who scored Burnley`s winner in last weekend`s 2-1 victory at Preston - headed goalwards but Palace goalkeeper Lewis Price made a fine save to avert the danger. Chris Iwelumo then headed at Price from 12 yards and Chris Eagles tried to give Burnley a killer second goal in the 51st minute when he drilled in a 25-yard strike which Anthony Gardner did well to block. In the 59th minute Burnley boss Howe replaced Iwelumo with Wade Elliott due to injury. Moments later Wallace should have scored but sliced a shot wide from 12 yards out as Palace continued to lead a charmed life. Fox tried his luck from 30 yards but Wright made a fine block to avert the danger. Wallace then shot wide before Ambrose had a 25-yard free-kick tipped over by Lee Grant. McCarthy headed over the bar and then Elliott headed wide as Burnley held on for a potentially priceless three points. end M
