BURNLEY Under-23s produced a four-some second half display to come from two goals down to beat Bolton 4-2 on Monday night.

The Clarets were second best in the first 45 minutes at Leyland and trailed 2-0 to two Olowale Tanimowo goals.

But Steve Stone’s side were a different proposition after the break and roared back as goals from Michael Fowler, Bobby Thomas, Dan Agyei and Josh Benson turned the game on its head and secured three points for the visitors.

The result moves Burnley above Birmingham and up to second in the Professional Development League standings.

The Clarets had the first chance when captain Anthony Glennon rattled the bar within the first five minutes but it was Bolton who struck first when Tanimowo found space in the box to slot past Aiden Stone in the Clarets goal.

Stone then denied Harry Brockbank with a good save down to his right as Wanderers enjoyed the better of the opening half.

And the home side doubled their lead shortly before the break when Tanimowo scored his second after Burnley played themselves into trouble on the edge of their own box.

The Clarets had worked hard in the opening 45 minutes but struggled to carve open any clear cut chances.

But within 15 minutes of the restart they were back in it when Fowler scrambled home from inside the six-yard box.

And Stone’s side were level just past the hour when Bobby Thomas met a Josh Benson corner with a perfect glancing header that dropped in off the far post.

Burnley had their tails up now and Glennon curled a free kick past the post before substitute Agyei shot tamely at Jake Turner after fashioning himself a chance.

Benson then stood up a cross for Fowler but the striker, all alone eight yards out, couldn’t get enough power on his header to trouble Turner.

But the Clarets pressure eventually told nine minutes from time when Agyei planted a firm header into the corner from Benson’s perfect set piece delivery to complete the turn around and put Burnley in front.

There was still time for Benson to put some gloss on the scoreline as he curled home a free kick in the closing stages to secure the points.

Burnley are back in action on Friday night when they travel to Hull City.
