Burnley earned their first point since returning to the Premier League but were left frustrated by a 1-1 draw at Nottingham Forest on Monday after having a late goal ruled out.

Vincent Kompany’s side soaked up some early pressure and then took the lead after 41 minutes with a superb finish by Zeki Amdouni after good work by Luca Kolesoho.

Burnley grew in confidence and looked comfortable in the opening stages of the second half but were rocked when Callum Hudson-Odoi curled in a superb 61st-minute equaliser.

Forest sought to maintain the momentum but it was Burnley who thought they had re-taken the lead when Lyle Foster slotted in Sander Berge’s low cross but the goal was disallowed for a harsh-looking handball against Berge.

There was worse to come for Foster who was sent off in stoppage time for an elbow.

Burnley register their first point of the season at their fourth attempt after returning to the Premier League. Kompany's side host struggling Manchester United next Saturday, while Forest – who sit eighth in the table on seven points – face the thankless task of visiting Manchester City on the same day.

An entertaining Premier League clash at the City Ground comes to an end as Forest and Burnley share the spoils in a 1-1 draw. A Hudson-Odoi stunner after the interval cancelled out Amdouni's pinpoint first-half finish, although the Clarets may feel hard done by. Foster had the ball in the back of the net to make it 2-1, only for the VAR to deem Berge had handled when assisting the striker. To make matters worse for Foster, the visitors' striker was dismissed late on after petulantly swinging out at Yates.

Gibbs-White pumps a long free-kick towards the far post, where McKenna helps a header towards Wood. The New Zealand international can't test Trafford at his near post, though, and that will be game over at the City Ground.

Cullen drags down Gibbs-White to stop a Forest counter-attack and the Burnley midfielder has no complaints for the yellow card shown.

Foster has endured a torrid game in regards to the VAR, first seeing his second-half finish ruled out for Berge's handball before his needless act of violent conduct was noted by the off-field officials. Burnley are hanging in there with 10 men for the time being, presumably much to the South African's relief.

Aina bursts down the right-hand side before cutting back for Gibbs-White, who rushes a right-footed attempt straight at Trafford. Wood swings a loose leg at the chance in front of the Burnley goalkeeper, but the Forest substitute is offside.
