I’m assuming all the players were given a run out with no one playing more than 45 mins but other than the score and the scorer there is no further info available.

No Heaton :shock:

65 minutes for Benson with everybody else getting no longer than 45. Interesting.

Very strange, the club reported that Ben Mee was fouled for the pen that led to the goal but he wasn't on the pitch when it happened according to the team info.

No Heaton, Taylor, Defour, from what I can see.

He wasn't in last week at Gawthorpe but he's been there this week in Portugal, the only other player given an extra week was Nahki Wells because he was playing in the CONCACAF Gold Cup towards end of June.

Not really no, it was a behind closed doors friendly to end a week in Portugal. I don't read anything into the line ups whatsoever.

Is Benson going to be this season's exciting preseason youth?

Plays well in the warm up matches, looks the part, then barely ever seen again?

Would be nice to see a few of our youth players start to break through together.

Benson was never a youth team player at Burnley, we signed him from Arsenal last summer. I think he's got something about him.

Haha got me on a technicality there CT. I should have said development squad player.

Hope you are right as I like nothing more than seeing young players breakthrough and do well. Seem to recall he has impressed a lot in the U23's from match reports read last year.

He and Mace Goodridge came in on trial towards the end of the 2017/18 season and both did well enough to get deals. Both started last season really well but Goodridge then did his cruciate and is just on his way back. Benson, I thought impressed, but he missed the end of the season with a hamstring injury at a time when all four u23 central midfielders were injured.

Both Benson & Goodridge are still just 19 though so we need to be patient, you don't get a McNeil every year, players like him coming through are exceptional.

That squad is improving, no doubt about it, but we are still in recovery mode in the academy although things are moving forward really well now and hopefully we'll be preparing for cat 1 this time next year.

Ashingtonclaret46 I understand what Tony says but I can I assure you I have plenty things to worry about outside of Tom Heaton not playing this evening. I am pretty sure though (and I might be wrong) but I think this does mean the end for Tom Heaton and Burnley. There must be plenty of posters that are thinking along the same lines.

Seem to recall he played alongside Marley Blair a few times if memory serves me right and there were some complimentary reports about them both earlier on in the season?

You are right, McNeil is looking like an exception to the norm and is certainly one of the most exciting youngsters (probably the most) I can remember coming through from the youth players.

So because Tom doesn't play in a behind closed doors game you are sure it means the end for him at Burnley? I don't know whether he is staying or going but I certainly don't read anything into him not playing tonight.

I hope not but I have my doubts! Hart to go for me but I would have Nick as my first choice.
Just think he commands the box better. I am a big fan of Tom and I am sure if he does need a new challenge/contract he will continue to be a great keeper for many years.
2 + 2 = 5 perhaps. We will soon find out I’m sure :-)

If I was picking the team from our keepers then it would be Tom every single time, but that's my opinion. We will find out whether he leaves or stays, but certainly I would read absolutely nothing into his absence tonight.

From SD:

“The hardest thing is recreating that game atmosphere, even though it is pre-season. But they managed to get 45 minutes each and there were no injuries, which is great. There are a few niggles, like Charlie Taylor, who didn’t quite make it, but nothing too serious at this stage.”

So Taylor confirmed with a "niggle", we know Defour isn't 100%, could also be why Tom didn't play.
