PREVIEW: Burnley U23s v Sheffield Wednesday U23s

4 November 2019

The U23s take on Sheffield Wednesday this afternoon at the Tameside Stadium, in the U23 Professional Development League.

Burnley still remain unbeaten in all competitons this season, currently sitting third in the table and a win today means the Clarets can move to the top.

And captain Anthony Glennon believes the squad are in a great place at the moment, but  admits despite being the only side in the league that hasn't lost this season, his side must not get carried away.

The former-Liverpool defender said: "Looking ahead to today’s match myself and the lads are all excited for the game, we’re in a really good place at the moment and for us the sooner the games come around the better.

"It’s always the way when the group are on a good run and in form then you want the games to come around thick and fast like they have been doing. 

"To still be unbeaten at this stage in the season is a great achievement for any team of course and the lads are really happy to be in this position now.

"However, today will be another tough test and it’s down to us keep ourselves level headed going in to the game and keep our standards high like we have done in the build up to each and every other game so far this season.

"The success from this group so far this season has been amazing, I knew from the first day that we came back for pre season that we had a great group of lads here and we had an exciting season ahead of us and to be fair we have shown that so far.

"However, we are not even half way through the season yet so we can’t get carried away with what we have achieved, but on the other hand as captain of the group I’m proud of all the boys for the efforts we have put in so far and long may it continue."

Wednesday lost 3-0 last time out against Barnsley and currently sit eighth in the table on nine points.

When the Clarets met the Yorkshire side last season, Burnley suffered a 1-0 defeat at home, but won the reverse fixture 4-2.

The match kicks off at 2:00pm, at Curzon Ashton's Tameside Stadium, live updates will be avaliable on Twitter (@Burnleyofficial), followed by report and reaction.
