PREVIEW: Burnley U18s v Bristol City U18s

Clarets look to bounce back and hope for help from

5 April 2019

The Youth Team faces Bristol City at Barnfield on Saturday (KO 1pm) looking to keep their season alive.

A 6-2 mid-week defeat to Birmingham City handed Tony Philliskirk’s side a first defeat in the U18 Professional Development League since the start of December.

That saw the Clarets slip to fourth place in the table and wins for Leeds United and Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday will guarantee them the top two places in the northern group and a place in the north-south play-offs.

Burnley must hope for an unlikely slip-up and try to take maximum points over their final three games, which conclude with a visit from QPR next Tuesday and a trip to Cardiff City on Saturday-week.
