Danny Cadamarteri takes the Clarets’ youth team back to former club Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday looking for a fifth straight win.
Cadamarteri coached the Owls’ under-18 side last season but will be in the opposite dug-out at Wednesday’s Middlewood training ground tomorrow (kick-off 11am).
And he will be looking for his new club to keep their impressive run going with top spot in the northern group of the U18 Professional Development League up for grabs.
The Clarets slipped off pole position last weekend when their game at Hull City was frozen off.
But a ninth league win of the campaign against the ninth-placed Owls would take Cadamarteri’s side back to the head of the title race.
The Clarets’ five-match winning run includes four league victories and a win in the FA Youth Cup, with the fourth-round draw of the competition scheduled to take place today (Friday).
