Preview: Millwall U18s v Burnley U18s

Young Clarets look to tame the lions at Millwall

8 March 2019

Tony Philliskirk’s side will be looking to continue their impressive winning run this weekend, after winning their last four matches in the U18 Professional Development League.

The young Clarets travel to Millwall, hoping to extend their winning run in the capital.

Philliskirk’s side haven’t played since February 19th, where they ran out 4-2 winners over second placed Leeds United.

And Burnley, on 41 points have a game in hand over the three teams that sit above them in the table, with Wednesday topping the table on 46 points.

Millwall are also on an impressive run of their own, as the Lions have won their last four games in the South Division of the U18 PDL and currently lay third in the table.

When the two sides met last season, a Michael Fowler goal was enough to secure all three points at the Barnfield Training Centre in a 1-0 win.

The Clarets may be without a few regular faces in London, as the U23’s host Watford on Monday afternoon and with Steve Stone’s men low on numbers, a handful of the youngsters may be involved again in the development side.

The match kicks off at 11:00am at Millwall’s training ground in Bromley.
