5 March 2023

The Sky Blues Under-21s fell to defeat against Burnley in the Professional Development League.

Burnley started on the front-foot and City 'keeper Tom Billson had to be alert to keep out the Clarets, making stops to deny Samuel Bastien and Marcel Lewis.

However, it was the Sky Blues who broke the deadlock, when they were awarded a penalty just after the half-hour mark.

Tom Costello stepped-up to take the penalty and made it count, finding the back of the net and putting City in front.

Burnley almost levelled before the break when Jez Davies hit the woodwork, but City would defend their lead come the end of the first half.

Following the restart, it was City who went closest to finding the halves first goal, as Evan Eghosa fired narrowly wide.

However, the Clarets's pressure finally told, as they found an equaliser through Halil Dervişoğlu just after the hour-mark.

Burnley then took the lead for the first time in the game, as Darko Churlinov found the back of the net for the hosts.

City looked for an equalsier, but they would fall short in their efforts, as they suffered a narrow defeat in Lancashire.
