Young Clarets Face U's Test

U18s bid to make it four games without defeat

8 September 2017

The Clarets’ youth team looks to extend its unbeaten run to four games when they take on Colchester United at the Barnfield Training Centre on Saturday morning (kick-off 11am).

Danny Cadamarteri’s side is undefeated since the opening day of the campaign and sit third in the north group of the U18 Professional Development League.

However, after letting slip a 3-0 lead before grabbing a point with an Oliver Younger equaliser at Ipswich a week ago, the Clarets will hope to get back to winning ways against a Colchester which has won one of its opening four games and shipped 15 goals.

The Clarets’ 16-man squad includes Younger and Dwight McNeil, who featured in Burnley’s mid-week Lancashire Senior Cup defeat to Preston.

But Scott Wilson is not available as he is training with the under-23s, who play at Crystal Palace on Monday.

And leading scorer Michael Fowler misses out through injury.

Burnley from: Bruce, Wusiewicz, Moss, Thomas, Mupariwa, Mpofu, Samms, Kershaw, Clarke, Younger, Jumeau, Meredith, Yari, Cropper, Egan, McNeil.
