PREVIEW: Crystal Palace U18s v Burnley U18s

Clarets look to close gap on top two by extending unbeaten run

29 March 2019

The youth team heads to London on Saturday looking to extend their eight-game unbeaten run and stay in contention for a place in the play-offs.

Tony Philliskirk’s side faces Crystal Palace at the Eagles’ Academy (KO 10.45) on the back of a 5-1 win over Sheffield United last time out.

With five games to go, the Clarets trail second-placed Sheffield Wednesday by four points and leaders Leeds by five points, with two games in hand on Leeds.

The top two sides go into the end-of-season play-offs against the top two from the southern section of the U18 Professional Development League.

Palace, eighth in the league’s southern section, have lost their last two games.
