Pashley In Charge For Cardiff

25 October 2012

Caretaker keeps the reins for Welsh trip

Burnley Football Club can confirm that caretaker manager Terry Pashley will remain in charge for Saturday’s game at joint Championship leaders Cardiff City.

The club is continuing the process of appointing a new manager but no appointment is expected ahead of the weekend.

Pashley has led the Clarets to successive Championship wins for the first time this season in his two games in charge.

And the long-serving youth coach has now been given the green light to aim for a hat-trick against the high-flying Bluebirds.

“All I have been asked to do is to look after the team and I will continue to do that,” said Pashley.

“I am enjoying what I am doing. We have had two good results and we will just set our focus on Cardiff and see if we can get another one.

“It was strange at the start but I’ve had a great relationship and great response from the boys and all the staff.

“They have made it really easy. They have trained really and well and played exceptionally well.”

Pashley will have to manage against Cardiff without the services of the suspended Ben Mee after the left-back collected his fifth booking of the season in Burnley’s 4-3 win at Bristol City on Tuesday night.

Midfielder Marvin Bartley will also miss the trip to Wales with a groin injury, while winger Ross Wallace is rated only 50/50 after suffering a hamstring strain in the warm-up at Ashton Gate.
