Share of the spoils in six-goal game

- Town U23s draw 3-3 at Burnley's Turf Moor
- Isaac Marriott, Joe Lolley and an own goal for Town
- Terriers pegged back after going ahead

Town’s Under-23 side came out with a share of the spoils from an all-action Professional Development League game at Burnley’s Turf Moor on Monday afternoon.

The game finished 3-3 after 90 minutes, with Isaac Marriott and Joe Lolley netting alongside an own goal for Frankie Bunn’s side, which was eventually pegged back by the hosts.

With the large majority of David Wagner’s squad on international duty or on the way to the training camp in Marbella, Joe Lolley was the only overage player in the side for the 2pm kick-off.

Instead, Bunn named a number of young charges in his starting line-up. With Under-23 regulars Romoney Crichlow-Noble and Luca Colville injured, there were starts for five Under-18 scholars – including a first start at Under-23 level for 16 year-old midfielder Scott High.

Things started very positively for the young Terriers, who were two goals ahead inside 21 minutes. First another of the scholars, Marriott, put his side ahead with a closed range finish after an initial save from the ‘keeper and then winger Denilson Carvalho set up Lolley in the area to prod the ball home.

However, Burnley fought back to restore parity with two goals in as many minutes. First Younger headed home McNeil’s 26th minute corner and then the provider turned finisher, with McNeil drilling a cross from Bayode past Town custodian Tadhg Ryan.

Lolley was the creator when Town retook the lead in the 31st minute, with his free-kick getting a nick off a defender on its way into the net.

Town skipper Jack Boyle was inches away from doubling the advantage just before the break, firing a shot inches wide of target.

That left the door open for the home side and they scored the final goal of the game to ensure a share of the spoils, with McNeil finding the bottom corner of Ryan’s goal from a tight angle.

Highlights from the game will be available for free on #HTTV on Tuesday.
