Tucker Scores in Burnley Win

IslandStats.com
Two goals in injury time earned Ne-Jai Tucker and his Burnley teammates a dramatic win to get their Central League Cup campaign off to a flying start.

Trailing 2-1 as the Group A game headed into two minutes of added time, Michael Jackson’s men looked as though they were set to see their losing start to the season continue.

But Michael Mellon then headed home a deserved equalizer as Burnley’s second-half pressure paid off.

And with enough time left on the clock, Sam Unwin then raced through to slot home a last-gasp winner at the Clarets' baking-hot training ground.

The comeback earned the U23s their first competitive win of the season.

Starting a group campaign that also includes fixtures against Accrington Stanley and Bolton Wanderers, Burnley were on the back foot early on as Rochdale went ahead through skipper Ethan Brierley.

The midfield play-maker coolly slotted home to set the tone for an outstanding display from the teenager.

Tucker quickly hit back with an excellent free-kick he curled into the corner to equalize.

In the second half, the visitors went back in front when Liam Kelly slid through an excellent pass which on-loan Birmingham City striker Josh Andrews deftly lifted over Lewis Thomas.

It was then down to the dramatic injury-time action.
