BURNLEY, Nov 5: Ashley Barnes pounced four minutes into stoppage time to give Burnley a 3-2 victory over Crystal Palace, lifting the promoted club to ninth in the English Premier League on Saturday.

Burnley threw away a two-goal lead before the substitute Barnes netted the winner after meeting a cross from Johann Gudmundsson.

Sam Vokes put Burnley ahead inside two minutes and Berg Gudmundsson doubled the lead in the 14th.

Connor Wickham reduced the deficit with his first touch after replacing Jason Puncheon on the hour, and Christian Benteke looked to have sealed the comeback.

But Barnes completed the second straight Turf Moor late show for Sean Dyche's side after Scott Arfield struck a last-minute winner against Everton two weeks ago.

Palace was condemned to a fourth straight loss.
