Match Summary Turf Moor remains a ‘bogey’: Pompey have still to get a point there. Chew gobbles up the opener when Butler fails to clear a cross, but poor Bray levels as his back-pass strands the keeper. Snow and poor light close in as Burnley take their prize scalp when McLaren is set up by Potts.
