Blackburn game moved to Morecambe
Burnley’s Premier League Cup game against Blackburn Rovers this Monday has been moved to an afternoon kick off at Morecambe’s Globe Arena.
The game will now kick off at 1 p.m. Burnley season ticket holders will still be admitted free of charge with non-season ticket holders paying £4 adults and £2 concessions.
Manager Sean Dyche explained: “We felt it necessary to move the game. It’s a shame because we didn’t really want to, but the fact is we have two games in four days and the pitch is visibly suffering after a harsh run of weather. The players have commented on that and we need the pitch to be as good as it can be.
“It’s just a fact of life; if we play three games in eight days it is going to get badly hurt and, as we’ve seen in the past with various pitches, once they are damaged at this time of year there is no recovery period.
“It has taken a bit of a bashing, so we have to make sure we protect it the best we can.”Share this page :
