There has been late drama in the PL Cup this week with Adam Legzdins heading in a stoppage-time corner to earn a Group G draw with Crystal Palace

Goalkeeper Adam Legzdins scored a stoppage-time equaliser as Burnley came from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Crystal Palace in Group G of the Premier League Cup.

Rob Street and Brandon Aveiro struck for Palace in the first half before Ali Koiki pulled one back for the home side on 67 minutes with his ninth goal of the season.

Legzdins was the unlikeliest of heroes as he headed in from a corner to keep Burnley second. 

Blackburn Rovers are four points clear at the top after goals from Dan Butterworth, Joe Rankin-Costello and Jack Vale earned a comeback victory over Middlesbrough.
