The Clarets’ youth team returns to action on Tuesday with a trip to face Sheffield Wednesday at their Middlewood Training Ground (KO 12 noon).
Danny Cadamarteri’s side is looking for a first win in six games as they resume following the cold snap which forced the postponement of their Lancashire Youth Cup semi-final last Tuesday and Saturday’s scheduled league game at Hull City.
And Burnley will be looking to tighten up at the back after conceding 16 goals in their last four games and 51 in total this season – the joint highest in the U18 Professional Development League’s northern group.
In-form Wednesday have won six of their last seven league games to move a place above the Clarets into fourth place in the table – although lost last time out to table-topping Bolton.
The Clarets beat Wednesday 3-1 at the end of September thanks to hat-trick from Jordan Cropper (main picture) to end the Owls’ unbeaten start to the season.
Kick-off in the fixture has been put back an hour to mid-day.
