Pre-season ends with a victory
Portuguese Primeira Liga club CS Marítimo were the visitors this afternoon to Turf Moor for what is our final pre-season game prior to the home League Cup tie against Sheffield United in six days time.
A first half header from Dwight McNeil gave us the lead and in the second half, Chris Wood headed home a Jόhann Berg Guðmundsson cross before setting up substitute Matěj Vydra for the third.
The pre-season, a strange pre-season at that, ends with four wins, one draw and one defeat, that coming at Gawthorpe against Shrewsbury. We’ve scored 15 goals in those six games with no lees than nine different scorers as follows:
4: Chris Wood
2: Jόhann Berg Guðmundsson, Bobby Thomas & Matěj Vydra
1: Josh Brownhill, Dwight McNeil, Lewis Richardson, Jay Rodriguez & Max Thompson
The teams were;
Burnley: Nick Pope, Phil Bardsley (Matt Lowton 60), Kevin Long, James Tarkowski, Charlie Taylor (Erik Pieters 60), Jόhann Berg Guðmundsson, Josh Brownhill, Ashley Westwood (Josh Benson 65), Dwight McNeil (Robbie Brady 65), Jay Rodriguez (Matěj Vydra 65), Chris Wood.
