Burnley's Chris Wood stuns Tottenham with late leveller

28/08/2017

Chris Wood grabbed a dramatic late equaliser as Tottenham suffered another Wembley wobble in a 1-1 draw with Burnley.

The striker, signed from Leeds for ВЈ15 million last week, stunned Spurs in stoppage time with his first Burnley goal.

And while Wood was off the mark barely half an hour after coming off the bench, Harry Kane's August drought stretches on.

The England striker has still never scored in the Premier League in the opening month of the season, a barren run now standing at 13 matches.

And Tottenham's sorry record at their temporary Wembley home now reads just one win from their last 11 matches.

Dele Alli's strike early in the second half looked like improving that -- but Wood had other ideas.

Kane could have scored three in the second half alone, but will instead have to console himself with the fact that September is only five days away.

His first opportunity of the match was a far-post header from a Ben Davies free-kick but he could only glance it wide.

His clearest chance of the opening period arrived seven minutes before the interval, when Alli sent Davies overlapping to the byline.

Kane controlled Davies' cutback six yards out, but his touch allowed James Tarkowski to get a vital block in.

However, Spurs got the goal their dominance deserved three minutes into the second half.

Alli met Christian Eriksen's corner six yards out with a first-time shot which Matthew Lowton somehow blocked on the line. Unfortunately for Burnley, the ball fell straight back to Ali, who drilled it home.

How Kane would love such a kind bounce at this time of year. Instead, when Eriksen picked him out on the left-hand side of the area, he could only sidefoot the ball wide.

That almost proved costly when Robbie Brady launched a fierce drive towards the top corner with 20 minutes to go, only to see Hugo Lloris pulled off a fine save.

Still chances fell to Kane, but twice he was denied by Burnley keeper Tom Heaton, with a fingertip save and then in a one-on-one.

And Wood made Spurs pay two minutes into stoppage time, latching onto Brady's pass and slotting the ball past Lloris to snatch a point.
