Despite not playing over the weekend, Wigan were guaranteed to retain top spot in the Youth Alliance League but they now lead both Bury and Walsall by just one point.

Bury had a game in hand and made no mistake in one of the three games played on Saturday, beating Fleetwood 2-0 at home. It’s taken them to 33 points, above Walsall on goal difference, and just one point behind the leaders. The top two both have 12 games remaining whilst Walsall, now considered outsiders, have played two games more.

Just behind them are Tranmere and Preston. It’s been a bitter sweet week for North End. They went out of the FA Youth Cup last week to Luton and on Saturday were beaten 1-0 by Shrewsbury in the Northern Final of the Youth Alliance Cup. Today, however, they collected three more points in the league with a comfortable 3-0 win at bottom club Morecambe.

Besides our 0-0 draw against Blackpool, Morecambe were involved in the one other game played on Saturday. They were beaten 2-0 at Rochdale and that, coupled with today’s result, means they’ve now conceded more than 50 goals in just 15 games.

For the young Clarets, the point also brought just the third clean sheet of the season. We had previously beaten Rochdale 2-0 in September and Preston 3-0 in December, both of them away.

We are next in action this Saturday when we travel to Tranmere. They are currently fourth in the table, just four points behind Wigan and having played a game more.
