Pre-season kicks off with a win against Fulham
The Clarets have ended their stay in Portugal tonight with a behind closed doors friendly against Fulham that we won 1-0 with a goal from Chris Wood.
The only goal of the game came in the 70th minute from the penalty spot in a game that saw us use a number of players in the first game with new signing Jay Rodriguez almost giving us an early lead, only to see his header from a Robbie Brady cross ruled out for offside
The penalty came when Ben Gibson went to meet a cross from Dwight McNeil but was pushed by Cyrus Christie with Wood taking responsibility from 12 yards and he was close to doubling his tally five minutes from the end when he headed against the bar.
