As the cliché goes, it’s a funny old game.
And at Turf Moor a rather bizarre event happened during a high stakes relegation battle between Burnley and Cardiff.
The incident happened on the stroke of half-time when Bluebirds defender Joe Bennett fouled Clarets frontman Ashley Barnes and the two became embroiled in a confrontation.
Bennett and Barnes were face to face, nose to nose in fact and then Barnes decided to KISS his opponent on the bridge of the nose!
Both players were booked following the incident which you can see a video of below.
As for what happened in the game, well Burnley ran out 2-0 winners thanks to a brace from Barnes’ strike partner Chris Wood, moving them eleven points clear of the relegation zone.
18th-placed Cardiff are still in deep trouble following the defeat and are five points adrift of safety and know they must beat 17th-placed Brighton on Tuesday night at the Amex Stadium to realistically have a chance of staying up.
