FRIENDLY: Cheltenham 0, Burnley 4
5:28pm Saturday 4th August 2012 in Football
CHARLIE Austin was again at the double as the Clarets continued their winning pre-season run.
The striker gave Burnley a 31st minute lead with a far post header from Junior Stanislas's delivery.
Two minutes into the second half he made it 2-0 in similar fashion, turning Ross Wallace's inswinging corner past Scott Brown.
Austin would have had a hat-trick of headers had it not been for Brown's save. But left back Joseph Mills reacted quickest to the rebound to tap in his first since arriving on a season-long loan from Reading.
Ross Wallace then wrapped up the win after Cheltenham invited the shot.
The winger was allowed to run through unchallenged, and tucked a low 25-yard effort into the bottom right corner.
Burnley round off their pre-season friendly programme with a trip to Rochdale on Tuesday night.
