Rovers Under-23s held a Burnley side including several fringe players to a 2-2 draw at Brockhall this afternoon.

Both Tony Mowbray and Sean Dyche watched the behind-closed-doors game which gave both managers the chance to cast an eye over their squad.

Stefan Mols equalised with the last kick of the game after full back Andrew Jackson had given Rovers the lead.

Burnley turned the game on its head when Ben Gibson and Matej Vydra were both on target in the second half.

While the Rovers side had a very youthful look to it, the Clarets included Charlie Taylor, Gibson, Nakhi Wells and Vydra in their line-up, while David Jones started in midfield.

Rovers started well and led in the 15th minute when Jackson met a Jack Vale cross to head beyond Adam Legzdins and into the corner of the net.

At the other end, Jones' free kick was held by Joe Hilton, before the lively Vale almost bagged a brilliant solo goal but saw his effort bravely blocked by a Clarets defender.

Taylor went close to an equaliser for the visitors, who trailed at the break, and almost went 2-0 down when Legzdins saved well from Vale.

Burnley levelled things up with 20 minutes to go when Vydra, linked with a move away from Turf Moor, curled beyond Joe Hilton when cutting in from the left.

And when the Rovers 'keeper was unable to deal with a cross, Gibson was there to turn home for the visitors.

Rovers responded and went close to making it 2-2 when Matty Platt was denied by Legzdins, while Sam Barnes hit the bar.

The hosts, who saw Tom White substituted in the first half, did get the equaliser they threatened though when Louis Annesley put in a cross which Mols turned in from close range.

Rovers: Hilton, Jackson (Leonard, 78), Barnes, Platt, Annesley, Thompson, Doyle, Lyons, Mols, White (Saadi, 29), Vale.

Burnley: Legzdins, Cropper, Gibson, Dunne, Taylor, Jones (Phillips, 80), Benson, Conn-Clarke (Richardson, 46), Koiki, Wells (Harris, 65), Vydra.
