Brown­hill’s rocket sets Burn­ley on their way

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Sport / Football -

A thun­der­bolt from Josh Brown­hill set up Burn­ley to clinch a 2-0 vic­tory at Mill­wall in the Carabao Cup third round. The won­der strike on the stroke of half-time, cou­pled with Matej Vy­dra’s late ef­fort, gave Sean Dy­che a vic­tory at his old club.

Bobby Decor­dova-Reid scored for the sec­ond suc­ces­sive match as Ful­ham eased to a 2-0 suc­cess over Sh­effield Wed­nes­day at Craven Cot­tage to set up a re­peat of last sea­son’s Cham­pi­onship play-off fi­nal against Brent­ford.

Af­ter con­ced­ing seven goals in two Premier League games, man­ager Scott Parker was pleased with a de­fen­sive shutout. “It’s al­ways key to build on clean sheets and get into the habit,” he said. “They’re go­ing to be cru­cial for us this year.”

Brighton will face Manch­ester United as they beat Pre­ston 2-0 at Deep­dale. Stoke saw off Gilling­ham 1-0.
