Fontaine shuts out Clarets
Bristol City survived having to play the final half-hour with defender Liam Fontaine in goal as they earned a 1-1 draw with Burnley.
The centre-half was forced to take the gloves after David James suffered an injury on the hour mark, with Robins boss Derek McInnes opting not to name a goalkeeper among his substitutes. It looked as if they would be punished as 13 minutes later Fontaine was picking the ball out of the net after being beaten by a superb 30-yard strike from Danny Ings, but the visitors rescued a surprise point and it was a great moment for striker Ryan Taylor, who celebrated his first appearance since mid-October by levelling from 25 yards for his first goal for the club. Burnley sensed a season-ending win was on the cards and after Charlie Austin had an effort blocked, they finally took the lead and did so in fine style. Danny Lafferty found Ings and he smashed a 30-yard effort sailing past a helpless Fontaine with 15 minutes to go. The lead did not last long, though, as Taylor curled in a classy effort from 25 yards to celebrate his first goal for the Robins since his summer move from Rotherham and that is how it ended as Fontaine avoided any further scares.
