Preview: Birmingham City U23s v Burnley U23s

Clarets eye top spot in Professional Development League

23 November 2018

Steve Stone’s U23 side travels to Birmingham City on Saturday with top spot in the Professional Development League in their sights.

The Clarets - who are to set have returning defender Ben Gibson in their ranks - are in fine form and will go above Bolton to lead the northern section if they can secure a sixth win in seven league games.

Burnley haven’t lost in the league since September and extended a six-match unbeaten run in the competition with a 4-3 win over Nottingham Forest on Monday in Stone's first game in charge.

Birmingham have won two of their last three league games, including a 3-0 win over Leeds United last time out, and currently sit fourth in the table.

When the two sides met last season, a 2-2 draw in Birmingham saw the sides share the spoils, with City running out 5-0 winners in the reverse fixture at the Barnfield Training Centre.

Kick-off at Birmingham's Trillion Trophy training centre is at 2pm.

A report and reaction will be online post-match.
