Danny Ings Double Continues Birmingham's Poor Start

In form Burnley hitman Danny Ings netted a double to send Birmingham crashing to their fifth defeat of the season as they lost 3-0 at Turf Moor.

The quickfire Clarets took a third minute lead when Sam Vokes' touch and turn saw him lose his marker and he sent Ings clear to lift the ball over Darren Randolph for the opener.

Ings should have added a second when sidefooting wide from close range from Scott Arfield's precision cross.

Burnley clinched their fourth win of the campaign when Scott Arfield met Michael Kightly's cross at the far post to power home a header just 17 seconds after the restart.

The winger then turned provider by sending Ings racing between two defenders to slot past Randolph for his seventh of the season.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche said: "Danny is doing okay. He is willing to learn and willing to work. Sam Vokes is proving to be a good foil for him."

While Birmingham manager Lee Clark said: "That was our first poor performance of the season. I am disappointed because we didn't deserve anything from the game."
