Sam’s strike marked the first time two Burnley players have reached 20 league goals in a season for nearly half a Century, since Willie Irvine (22) and Andy Lochhead (21) achieved the feat in 1964-65.
However, more significantly, Danny and Sam are only the fifth pair of Burnley goalscorers to both reach 20 league goals in a season in the club’s history and we should now salute the Ings/Vokes partnership as new record holders.
Their achievement has been reached earlier in the campaign than any of the previous goalscoring partnerships.
The previous partnerships are:
Willie Irvine / Andy Lochhead: 1964/65
Jimmy Robson / Ray Pointer 1960/61
George Beel / Louis Page: 1927/28
Joe Anderson / Bob Kelly: 1920/21
