Jeff Hendrick denied penalty for Burnley in Huddersfield stalemate

Honours and points were shared here, just as they were when the sides met at Turf Moor earlier in the season, though a second goalless game was not without incident. Burnley had a strong claim for a second-half penalty waved away when Jonas Lössl brought down Jeff Hendrick in the box, the goalkeeper clearly taking the midfielder’s leg after being rounded near the goal-line. Burnley had been the better side, in keeping with their league position, though it was not an afternoon of many chances.

“It was a performance that deserved three points,” Sean Dyche said. “A point on the road is worth having, but we should have more. It was a definite penalty. Obvious.” David Wagner did not argue. “I have not seen the video, but I have spoken to Jonas and he says there was contact,” the Huddersfield manager said. “So it looks like we were lucky, because we were not at our best. Burnley were better but I can’t complain about a point and a clean sheet.”
