Youths travel to Tranmere
Burnley will be looking to continue the current run and try to put Blackpool under pressure in the Youth Alliance League with the first of four successive away games at Tranmere.
We’ll be looking to complete the double over the Birkenhead club having beaten them 1-0 in the first home game of the season back in August, at a time when we couldn’t be sure what sort of season we were going to have.
Nashé Chakwana (pictured) scored that day and a win tomorrow would reverse last season when Tranmere won both games. We lost the home game then in the very first game of the season and it was even worse at Tranmere when we lost 5-1 with Josh Dolling scoring our goal.
Tranmere had a decent season in 2015/16, ending the season in fourth place with 49 points from their 28 games. This season has been so different though and right now, with four games remaining, they sit next to bottom with just 16 points having won only three of their games.
Last week’s game against Fleetwood ended in a 3-0 win for the Clarets and took our current run of wins to five and a seven game unbeaten run.
After tomorrow’s game, we travel to bottom club Wrexham on Tuesday before further away games at Preston on 22nd and Shrewsbury on 29th before ending the season with a home game against Accrington on 6th May.
It’s not quite in our own hands with Blackpool having a much better goal difference but if we can continue winning it will give us a good chance if they slip up.Share this page :
