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.
