Burnley-Hannover friendly abandoned after reported crowd trouble


Burnley was leading at halftime of Saturday’s friendly against Bundesliga side Hannover, however, the preseason friendly has been abandoned at the Turf Moor.

Reported crowd control issues have been cited as the reason for stopping the match in the second half with Burnley leading 1-0.

The Clarets had taken the lead just minutes before halftime when Ben Mee headed home a cross from Robbie Brady in the 41st minute.
