Clarets suffer defeat in opening game at Millwall
The under-21s season got underway with a 3-1 defeat at Millwall this afternoon and, as was the case last season, a young Burnley team came up against much more experienced opposition.
We fell behind after just thirteen minutes to a George Evans goal but drew level midway through the first half when Lewis Richardson fired a low shot past home goalkeeper Connal Trueman for his first Burnley goal since August last year when he scored the first in a 2-1 win at Cardiff.
Level at half time, but it was Millwall who went on to win the game with two second half goals. With not long gone, Aidomo Emakhu put the hosts back in front and the scoring was complete just past the hour when Seb Drozd headed home from a corner.
Our home programme will kick off this Saturday morning when Cardiff are the visitors to the County Ground at Leyland.
The teams were;
Millwall: Connal Trueman, Kyle Smith, Nino Adom-Malaki, Wes Harding (Frankie Hvid 61), Ryan Leonard (Finley Cotton 61), George Evans (George Walker 61), Sha’mar Lawson, Kamarl Grant, Aidomo Emakhu (Seb Drozd 61), Abdul Abdulmalik, Tomas Leahy. Sub not used: George Evans (GK).
Burnley: Charlie Casper, Alex Healy-Byrne, Joe Ashton, Dan Sassi, Brad Grant, Basilio Rieno Socoliche, Jez Davies, Lewis Richardson (Will Hugill 60), Marcel Lewis, Tom Tweedy, Joe Westley. Subs not used: Felix Chester, Jack Turner, Adam Abass, Lucas Wane.Follow UpTheClarets:
