Burnley and Sheffield Wednesday play out an entertaining 3-3 draw at Turf Moor, with Charlie Austin scoring a hat-trick for the hosts.

Burnley and Sheffield Wednesday played out an entertaining 3-3 draw at Turf Moor in their Championship game on Tuesday.

Charlie Austin scored a hat-trick for the hosts - his second of the season - but that was not enough for his side to pick up maximum points in front of their own supporters.

Austin put Burnley head in the 22nd minute when he headed home Kieran Trippier's cross, but a minute later Chris O'Grady equalised for Wednesday.

Seven minutes before the half-time interval, Austin headed home another cross from Trippier to restore the hosts' one-goal advantage.

However, O'Grady once again levelled the score for the visitors in the 64th minute when he took advantage of a Michael Duff slip to shot past Lee Grant.

Austin completed his hat-trick for Burnley in the 84th minute when he latched on to Dean Marney's long pass and fired home.

There was still more drama to come at Turf Moor, as a minute later Wednesday equalised for the third time in the game, thanks to a fierce shot from Michail Antonio.
