Tucker & Burnley Draw with Chelsea

Bobby Thomas marked his return to a Burnley shirt with a goal as Ne-Jai Tucker and his Burnley Under 23 teammates twice came from behind to earn a draw in the last game at Turf Moor this season against Chelsea.

Steve Stone gave his side a final test against a Chelsea side which had finished second to Manchester City in the top tier of Premier League 2.

And they came through it with a deserved reward thanks to an impressive performance capped by a second-half fightback.

Goalless at the break following an even first 45 minutes, Chelsea – coached by former Burnley defender Jon Harley – twice took the advantage.

But Thomas – who finished the regular season by helping Barrow stay in the Football League during a successful loan spell – headed an initial equalizer.

And then after Chelsea had regained the lead from the penalty spot, substitute Joel Mumbongo glanced home a second leveler as Burnley’s pressure paid off.

Burnley also had midfielder Adam Phillips back in their ranks following his loan spell at Accrington Stanley, along with a couple of trialists.
