Lyle Foster made his debut for Championship side Burnley in Saturday's FA Cup encounter against Ipswich Town.

The 22-year-old was named on the bench for Vincent Kompany's side after he was unveiled on Wednesday evening.

Foster was introduced in the 66th minute by Kompany, with veteran forward Jay Rodriguez making way.

The former Orlando Pirates striker played just under 30 minutes for the Clarets, although the encounter ended all square and a replay will be needed to decide the winner of the fourth round tie.

Burnley will now switch focus back to their promotion hunt, as they take on play-off hopefuls Norwich City next weekend.
