Matt Taylor and Jack Collison both netted from the spot in the closing 15 minutes on Tuesday night as Burnley's eight-match unbeaten run came to a crashing halt.

The Championship leaders had the better of their Premier League opposition in the first half and could have broken the deadlock when Kieran Trippier's thunderous free-kick rattled the woodwork in the second period.

However, momentum switched when referee Robert Madley pointed the spot after Jason Shackell brought down Kevin Nolan inside the area but Dyche was unhappy with the official's call.

"I asked the referee and he said he was happy with his view; I wasn't as happy with his view," the Clarets boss said.

"I think it's a very difficult position to see a penalty from. He's behind the play and three or four players, but I always respect referees' decisions and that's the way it is.

"There was no major contact, certainly not enough to bring them to the floor, but the referee has to make a decision and he's made one."

Dyche celebrates his one-year anniversary at Burnley on Wednesday, yet his celebrations were soured further when Treacy, chasing back to try and stop Collison firing home, tripped the Welsh midfielder in stoppage time to earn a slightly early bath.

"The hard one to take is the fact that, in the modern game, does that really warrant a sending off?" asked Dyche.

"The rule states it does but it is bizarre really. I think the penalty is enough, to be honest.

"They're the rules, I'm not stating we should change them, I'm just saying it was a nothing incident, it wasn't malicious, he was trying to get back and stop a goal."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
