Two second half Owen Dodgson goals have given Burnley a 2-0 win tonight in Premier League 2 against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

After a first half when the home team looked to have had the better of things, there was a big improvement in the second half. Just past the hour, Lewis Richardson played the ball through for Owen Dodgson who hammered home.

And it was Dodgson again, playing at left-back, who latched on to a poor throw out from Sunderland goalkeeper Ron-Thorben Hoffmann and moved forward to finish.

The game also saw Rob Harker come on as a substitute. Harker is another player who has been missing for months without a word from the club. We actually saw him get an injury in the home game against Sunderland back in August in what was his last appearance.

So, a first league win since December, a seventh of the season and the win ensures we remain tenth in the league.

The teams were;

Sunderland: Ron-Thorben Hoffmann, Ethan Kachosa, Danny Batth, Arbenit Xhemajli, Cieran Dunne (Tyrese Dyce 62), Sam Wilding, Tom Scott, Leon Dajaku, Elliot Embleton, Michael Spellman, Benjamin Mbunga-Kimpioka (Vinnie Steels ht). Subs not used: Jacob Carney, Harrison Sohna, Cameron Jessup.

Burnley: Sam Waller, Finlay Armstrong, Dan Sassi, Richard Nartey, Owen Dodgson, Ne-Jai Tucker (Anthony Gomez Mancini 80), Mark Helm, Ben Woods, Dara Costelloe, Joe McGlynn (Rob Harker 74), Lewis Richardson (Max Thompson 80). Subs not used: Harry Allen, Joel Connolly.
