Burnley, Sheffield Utd drive towards EPL

Scott Twine celebrated his first goal for Burnley with a stunning free-kick three minutes from time as the Championship leaders claimed a 2-1 comeback victory over West Brom.

Twine, who has been restricted to just five substitute appearances following his summer move from MK Dons, curled a set-piece into the top corner to see off their spirited visitors on Friday.

The Baggies had led from the seventh minute at Turf Moor when Darnell Furlong outmuscled Charlie Taylor at the near post to head in John Swift's corner.

Nathan Tella, though, produced a calmly-taken equaliser 15 minutes from the end, before Twine's late winner.

Both sides had uncertain moments in defence with former Burnley defender Erik Pieters almost turning Ashley Barnes' drive across goal into his own net, with goalkeeper Alex Palmer reacting brilliantly to turn the ball onto the post with his foot.

At the other end, Aro Muric fumbled a Swift corner into the net under pressure from Conor Townsend and Okay Yokuslu, but Australian referee Jarred Gillett ruled a foul on the goalkeeper.

Palmer later dropped a cross at the feet of substitute Jay Rodriguez but then recovered in time to block a Charlie Taylor volley.

But the No.1 couldn't do anything to deny Twine a late winner to deny the Baggies, who introduced Socceroo Tom Rogic in the second half.

At Bramall Lane, Daniel Jebbison's first league goal for Sheffield United since May 2021 secured a narrow 1-0 home win over Hull.

The 19-year-old striker ended his 18-game league drought for the Blades as Paul Heckingbottom's men maintained their relentless automatic promotion push with an 11th victory from their last 13 games in all competitions.

Hull, though, put up a strong fight and were pressing for an equaliser until a moment of petulance saw Ghana striker Benjamin Tetteh red carded for an attempted head butt in the 85th minute.

The game's decisive goal came from the night's first attack in the fourth minute when Anel Ahmedhodzic broke down the right channel and slipped the ball inside for Iliman Ndiaye.

His shot was blocked but the ball broke kindly for Jebbison, who stabbed in from seven yards.
