Preview: Burnley U18s v Hull City U18s

Clarets host the Tigers

19 October 2018

The young Clarets are back in action this weekend against Hull City in the U18 Professional Development League.

Burnley remain unbeaten in their last four outings and will be looking to extend that run against a Hull side who have lost their last four and yet to win this season.

The Tigers lost their opening five games, before draws with Barnsley and QPR last month.

John Townson’s side drew 1-1 last weekend against second placed Nottingham Forest, at the Nigel Doughty training ground.

Townson said: "Whoever we are playing we want to produce a good perfomance and our mindset wont be any different tomorrow.

"We have watched Hull's last couple of games and they have played well, despite not getting the results they'd have wanted.

"In all games we look to ourselves and demand a work ethic and a togetherness as a bare minimum and tomorrow will be no different".

And the Clarets can go top of the league this weekend with a win, depending on Forest’s and Sheffield Wednesday’s results

When the two sides met last season, the Tigers were 2-1 winners at home in March.

Although, in the reverse fixture a Michael Fowler hat-trick and a goal from Tristan Jumeau ensured a 4-1 victory at the Barnfield Training Centre.

There will be live updates of the match on Twitter (@BurnleyOfficial) followed by reaction and a report.

The game kicks off at 12:00pm, at the Barnfield Training Centre.
