Cardiff City suffered a big set after a defeat by Burnley

Burnley 2-0 Cardiff City

Cardiff’s slim chances of avoiding relegation suffered a further setback with a controversial defeat by Burnley at Turf Moor.

With the Clarets leading through Chris Wood‘s header from a corner, Cardiff were awarded a penalty when home defender Ben Mee headed the ball against his own arm.

However, referee Mike Dean reversed the decision after talking to his assistant – much to the anger of Cardiff’s players.

Wood headed a late second goal to leave the Bluebirds five points from safety with five games remaining after a sixth defeat in seven games.

In an incident-packed game, Burnley’s Ashley Barnes was booked for kissing Joe Bennett on the nose after an overzealous challenge by the Cardiff defender.
