Burnley 3, Norwich City 0: Two goals in the last five minutes of the match scuppered a young Norwich City team at Turf Moor tonight.

Former Norwich City player Ade Akinbiyi put the home side in front with a header into the corner on the half-hour mark, Andy Gray made it 2-0 in the 86 minute, and Elliott popped in the third for the home side.

16-year-old Chris Renton started tonight's match against Burnley after Darren Huckerby sustained a back injury in the pre-match warm-up. It was the latest injury blow for the already-stretched Norwich City side.

Renton was joined up front by 18-year-old Chris Martin.
