Under-23s: Burnley preview

20 February 2018

Bolton Wanderers Under-23s host Burnley at Macron Stadium in their latest Professional Development League on Wednesday evening.

Kicking off at 7pm, the young Whites currently sit top of the northern section on goal difference having lost just one of their past 13 matches.

Having won ten of those matches along the way, David Lee's side will be looking to return to winning ways following Friday's draw with Nottingham Forest.

With Wednesday's meeting against Burnley Bolton's game-in-hand, the Trotters will be confident of extending their lead at the top of the able against a side they beat 4-1 back in November.

Meanwhile, visitors Nottingham Forest currently lie bottom of the table having lost their last four matches, including a 5-0 defeat to Birmingham City in their last outing.

Admission will cost £3 for adults and £1 for concessions with season ticket holders able to attend free of charge.

There will be live updates via the club’s Twitter account @OfficialBWFC, with a match report available at www.bwfc.co.uk soon after.

Report: Bolton Wanderers U23s 1-0 Burnley U23s

22 February 2018

Bolton Wanderers' Under-23s fortified their position at the summit of the Professional Development League (North) after a second-half strike from trialist Chinedu Obasi defeated neighbours Burnley at Macron Stadium on Wednesday evening.

The Nigerian had only been on the field for a matter of minutes as his adept finish proved to be too clinical for visiting keeper Conor Mitchell.

The win puts David Lee’s men on 38 points – three ahead of Sheffield Wednesday with both teams having played 21 games.

Wanderers had the better of the first half with wing back Joe Muscatt forcing saves out of Mitchell, who was by far and away the busier of the two keepers.

Jan Kirchhoff, who was also on trial, headed straight into the arms of Mitchell after latching onto Jon Flanagan’s free-kick after Jack Earing was fouled.

Liam Morris then hit a full blooded shot from distance with his left peg which prompted Mitchell into diving at full stretch to keep the industrious midfielder out.

The hosts were cranking up the pressure and Harry Charsley flashed just wide moments later.

Morris went close again with another strike from distance before Jake Turner, in the Wanderers goal, was called into action to collect Jamie Thomas’ well-struck free-kick.

Connor Hall, whose customary diligence was a constant thorn in the Burnley side, had the Clarets’ defence on their toes just before the break when he thundered into the penalty box only to place the ball narrowly wide.

Not long after the break, Hall had a looping header cleared off the line by Frank Jones.

Chances were few and far between but the game turned when Obasi, who had earlier replaced Kirchhoff, expertly placed his strike beyond Mitchell to give the hosts a deserved victory.

Bolton: Turner, Flanagan, Muscatt, Edwards, Mitchell, Brockbank, Morris, Kirchhoff, Hall, Charsley, Earing

Substitutes: Rose, Aspinall, White, Obasi, Jones-Griffiths
