A stunning strike from Burnley's Scott Arfield gave the Clarets all three points in the Lancashire derby as they won 2-1 at Turf Moor, inflicting a fourth straight defeat on Blackpool.

But Blackpool were never out of the reckoning and Craig Cathcart levelled the scores with a header before Arfield raised the roof by ensuring Burnley occupied the Championship's top spot at Christmas.
