Burnley striker cancels out Badou Ndiaye's opener to leave Potters four points from safety

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.
