A DROP goal deep in to injury time saw Bolton snatch victory away from Burnley.

The Holden Road side had led through a try from young James White which came right off the training ground with the inside centre flying over following a well worked move.

But the inability to be clinical when it mattered and some fussy officiating proved to be Burnley’s downfall.

“The referee found an extra 10 minues from someone and sent three of our lads off, two at one time.

“While I questioned him about the extra time I can’t complain too much because it was our game to win but we just could not finish them off.

“We defended and defend-ed at the end but they kicked a drop goal and the referee blew his whistle.”
