U23s Back In Action

Michael Duff's side aims to tame Tigers before Christmas break

18 December 2017

The Under-23s return to action tonight when they take on Hull City at Curzon Ashton (7pm).

Michael Duff’s side has been without a game in almost a month following successive postponements due to the bad weather.

But they will be looking to sign off for Christmas with a fourth win of the campaign in the Professional Development League against a Hull side sitting sixth place in the northern division – three places above the Clarets.

The two sides drew 0-0 on Humberside in September.

Duff will select from his under-23 squad, with no senior players on duty.

Meanwhile, the Clarets have re-arranged two of their league fixtures.

The game against Sheffield Wednesday, postponed earlier this month, will now be played Thursday, 1 March at the Owls’ training ground (1pm).

And the Clarets’ home fixture against Nottingham Forest scheduled for Monday, 15 January will now be played on Thursday, 8 March at Curzon Ashton (7pm) due to Forest’s involvement in the FA Youth Cup on the original date.
