West Bromwich Albion got goals from regular first-teamers Grady Diangana and Callum Robinson as they overcame Ne-Jai Tucker and his Burnley teammates missed out on the chance to climb into third place and the PL2 Second Division play-off zone.
Diangana and Robinson were among four senior players included by West Bromwich Albion in a fixture switched to the Hawthorns.
And their goals five minutes apart in the second half were ultimately enough to earn the victory that lifted West Bromwich Albion off the foot of the table.
But despite the gulf in experience, Burnley pushed West Brom all the way with a second goal for the club from midfielder Anthony Gomez-Mancini setting up a late fightback.
One of Burnley’s best chances fell to Tucker, who saw his shot deflected wide after collecting a pass from Gomez-Mancini.
