Preview: Burnley U23s v Hull City U23s

24 September 2018

The U23’s host Hull City this afternoon (Monday) at the Tameside Stadium in the Professional Development League.

The Clarets will be looking to follow up last week’s 2-0 win over Bolton Wanderers, with another victory.

Steven Defour featured for the development squad in that game, as the Belgian midfielder completed 60 minutes in his comeback to full fitness.

However, Burnley will be without the suspended Ali Koiki and Christian N’Guessan, after they were both shown red cards against Bolton.

Meanwhile, the Tigers currently sit eight in the table with just one win this season, which came against Watford.

Last time out, the Yorkshire side fell to a 3-0 defeat away to Birmingham City.

The game kicks off at 2pm, live updates will be available on Twitter (@Burnleyofficial), followed by reaction and a full match report.

Clarets home record dented but Robbie Brady makes successful return

24 September 2018

Robbie Brady stepped up his comeback with a near 90-minute run-out for the Under-23s against his former club.

Brady built on the training ground outing he was given during an in-house match last Thursday afternoon with 82 minutes as an over-age player in the Professional Development League.

The ex-Tigers winger was unable to help mastermind a fourth home win in five attempts for the Clarets as Hull took the points at the Tameside Stadium with goals from Keane Lewis-Potter and first-team men Will Keane and Jon Toral.

But it was another step forward for the Republic of Ireland international, who last played in public during pre-season.

A couple of minor set-backs following Brady’s recovery from knee surgery had delayed the return of Burnley’s former record buy.

But his return to first-team duty for the first time since last December edged nearer thanks to a sprightly performance including two trademark free-kicks in the first half which almost brought Burnley goals.

The Clarets had been the better side before the break but couldn’t turn their superiority – and some smart passages of play – into goals.

Dan Agyei put an early effort just wide with a shot on the turn and Mark Howarth, continuing a welcome return from his own long-term injury, also tested Hull keeper George Long.

Long also saved from lively wingman Tunde Bayode but the pick of his stops was a superb finger-tip save to touch over a 20-yard free-kick from Brady after an earlier sighter had seen Brady’s set-piece fly just over the bar.

And against the run of play Hull grabbed the lead through Lewis-Porter with 20 minutes gone.

The winger had the hit bar moments earlier but made no mistake when sweeping in a low cross from Robbie McKenzie at the far post.

McMahon then made a fine save from Keane but three minutes after the re-start the former Manchester United man got his goal with a fantastic first-time finish from Brandon Fleming’s fine low cross.

The Clarets offered little in response as they struggled to re-create their first-half performance and threaten Long’s goal again.

And it was Hull who struck again through Toral as the former Arsenal youngster and Birmingham City loan man drilled home a low effort a couple of minutes from the end as Hull wrapped up a third win of the season to go above Burnley in the table.
