Goals from Lewis Richardson (pictured) and Max Thompson, from the penalty spot, have given the under-23s a 2-0 win against Newcastle United this afternoon.

It took us just over an hour to go in front through Richardson with Thompson doubling that lead six minutes later from the penalty spot as we made it just one defeat in the last eight Premier League 2 games.

It’s been a big turnaround in our first season in this league. We beat Sunderland in our second game of the season but there were four defeats in the first five, the last of them at Middlesbrough in October.

Since, we’ve now won four, drawn three and lost just one, and that defeat coming against league leaders Leeds.

We are next in action a week today when Stoke are our visitors at Leyland.

The teams were;

Newcastle: Jake Turner, Ryan Barrett, Bradley Cross, Ludwig Francillette, Oisin McEntee, George Rounsfell (Nathan Carlyon 72), Stanley Flaherty (Dylan Stephenson 68), Jack Young, Joe White, Joshua Scott, Florent Indalecio. Subs not used: Max Thompson, Lucas Gamblin, Tai Ebanks.

Burnley: Marc Richter, Marcel Elva-Fountaine, Richard Nartey, Owen Dodgson, Anthony Glennon, Ne-Jai Tucker, Anthony Gomez Mancini, Mace Goodridge, Trialist (Armann Taranis 60), Max Thompson, Lewis Richardson (Ben Woods 85). Subs not used: Lewis Thomas, Calen Gallagher-Allison, Jake Rooney.
