CLITHEROE Wolves Under 8s came from behind against Brown Paints to extend their winning run.

After going 1-0 down to an unstoppable effort, Lloyd levelled matters before half-time.

Continued second half pressure from Clitheroe resulted in an own goal from the home side from a corner, only for the lead to be cancelled out with a breakaway goal.

A draw looked inevitable, but late on Lloyd beat his man on the edge of the area and fired home a superb shot into the bottom corner.
