Leeds came from a goal behind to claim all three points thanks to two late Robert Snodgrass goals.

Rodriguez had given Burnley an early lead but Snodgrass twice found himself unmarked at the back post to earn Leeds the points in what was a poor performance.

Adam Clayton had a couple of early chances for Leeds. His first effort was blocked before his second effort cleared the bar.

Burnley took the lead on ten minutes when Rodriguez headed in from close range following a good cross from Trippier.

The home side were creating more chances. Stanislas fired wide from a free kick and Alex McCarthy made a great save to deny Treacy.

Burnley were dealt a blow on half hour when leading goalscorer Charlie Austin suffered a dislocated shoulder.

The main talking point happened shortly afterwards when Burnley goalkeeper Lee Grant clearly handled a Ross McCormack shot outside the area but the referee missed it.

McCormack then tested Grant with a free kick with Robert Snodgrass firing wide with the rebound.

McCann then went close for the home side when his shot just went wide of the post.

McCormack then saw another free kick saved by Grant.

Rodriguez and Treacy were both denied by good saves by McCarthy in stoppage time in first half to keep Leeds in the game.

Leeds started the second half slightly better but only had a Jonny Howson shot that went wide for their early possession.

McCarthy continued where he left off in the first half with a good save to deny Treacy.

Treacy then clipped the bar with a long-range effort as the home side looked to increase their lead.

Leeds equalised with just under fifteen minutes remaining when Lloyd Sam`s deep cross was met by Snodgrass who was left unmarked to tap in from close range.

Rodriguez missed a good chance to put Burnley back ahead when he shot over from close range following a flick from Vokes.

Ramon Nunez had a chance at the other end but his free kick was deflected wide for a corner.

From the resulting corner the ball fell to Nunez who cross took a deflection and found Snodgrass at the back post who picked his spot to fire Leeds into the lead with just two minutes remaining.

Rodriguez forced McCarthy into two late saves but Leeds held on to clinch the points.
