5 November 2016

The Clarets made it four straight wins to go above Blackpool and into the top six of the North West Youth Alliance.

Tommy Wood (above), Olatunde Bayode and Tinashe Chakwana got the goals as Michael Duff’s side struck three times in the second half to continue their good run.

Blackpool had the first chance of the game with winger Liam Robinson shooting wide before the Clarets threatened when Tyler Shrimpton whipped in a fine ball for Chakwana at the back post, but the striker couldn't convert his effort.

Burnley then came close again when Dwight McNeil found Olatunde Bayode just outside the box with his shot kept out by Blackpool keeper Jack Sims.

A terrific save from Connor King to deny visiting striker Will Dunne kept the scores level at the break before Burnley took control in the second half.

Bayode almost broke the deadlock when he skidded a shot just wide and then after a fine tackle at the other end from Scott Wilson to deny Rowan Roache it was Bayode who made it 1-0 as he tucked away a cross from Chakwana.

And minutes later it was two when Wood doubled the lead after Chakwana was again the provider, picking out the tall striker to nod home and double the lead.

Miles Fenton then came off the bench for the last 25 minutes and the Clarets’ substitute created the third goal, squaring the ball for Chakwana tap in and guarantee maximum points.

Burnley: King, Egan, Wilson, Clarke, Koiki, McNeil, Shrimpton (Fenton 65 ) Howarth , Chakwana, Bayode, Wood (Pingling 70). Subs not used: Wusiewicz, Jumeau , Grogan.
