Highly rated Nigeria born winger Olatunde Bayode got on the scoresheet for Burnley U23 who drew 1-1 Coventry U23 in the English Development League on Monday.
The gifted lad netted an 80th minute equaliser for Burnley U23 against the opposing side at home.
Goalkeeper Peacock-Farrellwas beaten after 15 minutes as Coventry grabbed the lead. A long ball over the top from ex-Fleetwood full-back Junior Brown allowed Max Biamou to get in behind the Clarets’ defence and the striker – who has almost 50 first-team games under bis belt – lifted the ball over the Northern Ireland international to add to his winner in the opening round of games.
With ten minutes left on the clock, Bayode cut in and buried a fierce, angled strike into the top corner to give the Clarets the least they deserved.
An attacking wide player, Bayode came through the Academy at Turf Moor to earn a two-year scholarship.
That was extended by a further 12 months in July, 2017 after being a regular for the under-18s and graduating to the Clarets’ Development squad.
The winger was a regular for the under-23s in 2017/18 and signed a first professional contract at Turf Moor at the end of the season.
And after again being a mainstay of the Under-23 side in 2018/19, the pacy wideman agreed a 12-month contract extension at the end of last campaign.
He is eligible to play for Nigeria and England.
