PREVIEW: West Brom U23s v Burnley U23s

Clarets look for first win in group stages at Hednesford Town

30 November 2018

The Clarets go to West Bromwich Albion tonight (Friday) looking for a first win in their Premier League Cup campaign.

A 1-1 draw at Liverpool in their last game in Group C put Burnley's first point on the board as a late penalty save from Adam Legzdins denied the Reds an opening win.

Bournemouth currently top the group with maximim points from their opening two games - beating both Burnley and West Brom - ahead of their trip to Liverpool on Sunday.

However, the Clarets head to Staffordshire - tonight's game being played at Hednesford Town's Keys Park ground (KO 7pm) - in fine form, with Steve Stone's men unbeaten in seven league games at a level below the Baggies.

West Brom have drawn two and lost one of their last three games in Premier League Two to sit second from bottom of the table.

This will be the Clarets' last away game in the group, with return fixtures against all three sides to come after the turn of the year as the clubs chase a top-two finish and qualification for the knock-out stages.

Entry at Hednesford's Keys Park will be £5 adults and £1 concessions.

Live updates will be avaliable throughout the match on Twitter (@Burnleyofficial) followed by report and reaction.
