Patterson: We Just Need To Keep Moving Forward

U18s defender Kane Patterson looks ahead to this weekend's clash with Crewe Alexandra

31 October 2019

Tony Philliskirk's side take on Crewe Alexandra this Saturday (2nd November), in the U18 Professional Development League.

The Clarets, whose match last weekend against Hull City was called off due to the torrential rain, have won four of their last six matches, drawing one and losing the other.

Burnley currently sit fifth place in the table and a point ahead of Crewe, with two games in hand over the railwaymen.

And Patterson, who has been an ever-present this season for the U18s, believes the youth team have to keep the momentum going into this weekend, despite only playing two of their previous four scheduled league fixtures due to postponement's, along with a free weekend at the beginning of October.


The former Tottenham Hotspur right-back said:“Crewe away is always a funny one, especially in winter, as their pitch can turn into a bit of a mud bath.

“Which can sometimes throw the game-plan out the window, but no excuses we still have to do what we have to do.

“We just have to treat it like any other game really and go get three points and extend our impressive run.

“We have got a bit of momentum going now, ever since our slow start really.

“So, we have to make sure we just carry that on and keep going forward with our good performances and results.

“We are playing really well, and we just need to make sure we maintain that and hopefully get another win this weekend at Crewe.”

The match kicks off at 11:00am at Alexandra Park, where a win could see Philliskirk's side move up to fourth, depending on other results.
