Clarets' Youths Held By Wrexham

3 December 2016

Burnley's youth side were held to a 0-0 draw against a Wrexham side who were unbeaten in four games.

The Clarets dominated the opening stages of the game and when Olatunde Bayode teed up Miles Fenton the midfielder saw his effort fly wide of the goal.

Michael Duff's side continued to enjoy an attacking start and when Ali Koiki whipped in a fine cross it looked as if James Clarke had opened the scoring, however his header was an inch too high.

Wrexham had their first real chance when Joe Smith broke through on goal, only for Connor King to superbly deny the striker.

The home side then came close to making the difference when Tristan Jumeau found space outside the area before skimming the post.

The visitors then had another chance, this time with Smith the provider for Wilson, who hit an effort just over the bar from 20 yards out.

With time running out, Burnley looked to win it and when Bayode found substitute Pingling it looked like the forward was through on goal, only for Edwards to deny the striker.

BURNLEY: King, Clarke, Wilson, Younger, Koiki, McNeil, Fenton (Mpofu 72) Jumeau, Howarth, Bayode, Wood (Pingling 66)
Subs: Shrimpton, Bruce, Egan.
