PREVIEW: Crystal Palace U18s v Burnley U18s

Clarets look to close gap on top two by extending unbeaten run

29 March 2019

The youth team heads to London on Saturday looking to extend their eight-game unbeaten run and stay in contention for a place in the play-offs.

Tony Philliskirk’s side faces Crystal Palace at the Eagles’ Academy (KO 10.45) on the back of a 5-1 win over Sheffield United last time out.

With five games to go, the Clarets trail second-placed Sheffield Wednesday by four points and leaders Leeds by five points, with two games in hand on Leeds.

The top two sides go into the end-of-season play-offs against the top two from the southern section of the U18 Professional Development League.

Palace, eighth in the league’s southern section, have lost their last two games.

Clarets let slip early lead but still claim potentially valuable point

30 March 2019

The Clarets let slip a two-goal lead but still extended their unbeaten league run to nine games to stay in touch in the play-off race.

Rhys Fenlon put Burnley ahead in the opening five minutes from a well-worked free-kick before Chris Conn-Clarke doubled the lead with just over half an hour gone as the Clarets dominated before the break at Palace’s Academy training ground.

But the Eagles hit back in the second half to snatch a share of the points thanks to goals from a trialist and Branon Aveiro to take Burnley’s destiny out of their hands.

Tony Philliskirk’s side remains third in the Professional Development League’s northern division with four games to go.

But leaders Leeds United and second-placed Sheffield Wednesday both won, meaning they must drop points in the run-in to keep the door open for the Clarets to claim a top-two finish and a play-off berth.

Burnley: Allen, Connelly, Rain, Woode, Pruit, Conley, Fenlon, Conn-Clarke (Chima 90), McGlynn (Major 70), George, Steels (Tucker 72). Substitute: Waller.
