first_img Burnley celebrate Burnley retained the bragging rights over east Lancashire rivals Blackburn as Scott Arfield’s second-half winner saw the Clarets come away from Ewood Park with a 1-0 victory.Having gone 35 years without defeating their neighbours, Burnley have now claimed back-to-back derby wins over Rovers.It was a harsh result for the hosts, who were the more creative team throughout, but their prolificacy in front of goal – with Tom Lawrence and Jordan Rhodes both squandering brilliant chances – was eventually punished by Sean Dyche’s men.Burnley registered only two shots on target all game, but Scottish midfielder Arfield made the most of his opening with a fine curling strike just after the hour.Rovers had a gaping opportunity to level moments later, but fluffed their lines again as Craig Conway struck the crossbar late on.The result temporarily lifts Burnley to second in the Championship table, while Blackburn remain in 17th, just two points above the drop zone. 1last_img
