BURNLEY cruised into the quarter finals of the U21 Premier League Cup with a convincing Christmas win over Bolton Wanderers at Turf Moor.
Burnley dominated the mini-derby and saw off Wanderers thanks to goals from Cameron Howieson, Jason Gilchrist and Jamie Frost.
New Zealand international Howieson opened his account for the season with a fierce low drive 18 minutes before half time and Gilchrist doubled the advantage ten minutes into the second half.
And with Wanderers a spent force, Frost sealed a last-eight berth in the New Year with a firm, far post header eight minutes from time.
