Stoke City were frustrated in their fight against relegation after being pegged back in a 1-1 draw with Burnley at bet365 Stadium.
Badou Ndiaye gave Stoke an 11th-minute lead, converting Mame Biram Diouf's pass with the help of a deflection.
But Ashley Barnes equalised on 62 minutes with his sixth goal in his last eight Premier League matches. He converted a loose ball after Jack Butland had saved from James Tarkowski.
Stoke almost grabbed a much-needed victory two minutes from time, but Stephen Ireland's shot hit a post.
They move to 29 points, four behind 17th-placed Swansea City. Burnley remain seventh, with 53 points.
Stoke: 28 Apr v Liverpool (A)
