CHERRIES’ development squad suffered a second defeat on the road in the space of four days, going down 3-1 at Burnley.

Max Kinsey’s goal gave the visitors hope after a nightmare start at Turf Moor, only for the Clarets to seal the points in the closing moments.

It follows Tuesday’s 4-2 loss against Ipswich Town at Portman Road, with Alan Connell’s side staying third in the southern section of the Professional Development League.

Burnley broke the deadlock after two minutes, Tom Tweedy crossing for Renaldo Torraj to score at the back post.

The two then swapped roles soon after, Torraj picking out Tweedy to make it 2-0.

Cherries pulled a goal back before half-time, Kinsey heading in after a well-worked set-piece routine.

Daniel Adu-Adjei and Dominic Sadi both went close to levelling the game, before Cherries threw caution to the wind in stoppage time.

With goalkeeper Callan McKenna sent forwards from a corner, Burnley broke and killed the contest as Vernon Masara tapped into the unguarded net.

Cherries next face Charlton Athletic on Good Friday (2pm).

Cherries: McKenna, Tonks, Kinsey, Harris, Osborne (Johnson, 61), Brown, Williams (Gregory, 84), Landa, Sadi, Tydeman (Clarke, 74), Adu-Adjei.

Unused subs: Eagle, Allan (g/k).
