  • It's still all level at the break between the two sides here at Turf Moor! Sean Dyche's men have looked the brighter of the two, dominating the possession but unable to find the net yet.

  • 27'

  • 21'
    There's a goal-mouth scramble in the Hull City penalty box, Ings had a great chance to put his side ahead as the ball fell kindly for him from close range. McShane's clearance almost crossed the line after the clash of bodies.

  • 9'

  • 7'
    Yellow Card James Chester
  • 7'
    Burnley putting some early pressure on the away defence. Steve Bruce's men having to clear from deep with Chester. Trippier tries to find Ings with a lofted pass forward but Irish defender McShane gets across to cut out the danger. Chester then takes Boyd out as he went through on the left wing.
  • 5'
    Huddlestone's long ball forward is cut out but the home defence deal with it quite easily. Livermore's pass through the middle drops for Aluko but the forward scuffs his effort well wide of the left post. A very loose ball from the English midfielder then goes out for a thow in deep in the Hull half.
  • 3'
    Both sides need a massive pickup in their season and it's the home side who start the brightest. Danny Ings goes through one-on-one with Steve Harper but his chipped effort goes just wide of the right post. A very early chance for Sean Dyche's men!
  • 1'
    Burnley get the game underway! The home side are playing from left-to-right in this first period.
  • We are only 10 minutes away from kick-off here at Turf Moor!
  • Burnley's four point return from their first 10 games is worse than Derby's appalling start to the 2006/07 campaign. It is the fifth worst in Premier League history, better only than Swindon 1993/94, Everton 1994/95, Manchester City 1995/96 and Crystal Palace last season.
  • Burnley are the 10th team who have failed to pick up a win in any of their opening 10 Premier League matches of a single season, only three of the previous nine have survived the drop after such a poor start. Dyche's side will be aiming to overturn that record with a first season victory over Hull today and they have some reason to be confident having won four of the last five meetings.
  • It's been three games since Hull's last success and they have a particularly poor away record having won just one of their last 10 Premier League matches on the road, with four draws and five defeats. This fixture has always produced close encounters with four of the last five meetings between the sides having ended with a 1-0 scoreline.
  • Burnley have collected just four points so far this term, but remain only five adrift of safety and a progressive run of results would have them quickly climbing the positions in the table. It could be a timely period for them to be entertaining Hull, with Bruce's men hardly in dazzling form themselves at present. They have recorded just two wins and five draws so far.
