Burnley score two late goals to draw 2-2 away at Cardiff City in the Championship.
By , Reporter | 3y

Cardiff City surrendered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at home to Burnley this afternoon, with Michael Keane netting a 94th-minute equaliser for the visitors.

Scott Malone blazed a shot over the bar from inside the area with the game's first chance in the ninth minute before Kenwyne Jones forced Tom Heaton into a reflex save as Cardiff began brightly.

Burnley's first chance fell to Keane, who headed over from Joey Barton's corner, while Tony Watt ended a lung-bursting 40-yard run by fizzing an effort wide at the other end on his Cardiff debut.

However, Burnley came close when George Boyd saw a shot cleared off the line by Matthew Connolly. The visitors appealed for handball a few moments later as another Boyd effort was blocked inside the area, but the referee waved away their protests.

To compound their misery, Aron Gunnarsson nodded home from a Joe Ralls cross in the 41st minute to notch his first goal of the season and hand Cardiff the lead.

Gunnarsson went close once more in the 52nd minute as he fired at Heaton, while Jones directed a header narrowly over the bar.

The home crowd were on their feet again in the 65th minute though, as Sean Morrison headed home Peter Whittingham's corner to give the hosts a two-goal advantage.

Burnley gave themselves a lifeline with four minutes remaining when substitute Rouwen Hennings finished Boyd's cut-back from close range.

With almost the final kick of the game, Keane completed a remarkable comeback as he prodded home a loose ball inside the area to break Cardiff's hearts.
