The youth team kicked off the new season two weeks ago with a 4-1 home defeat against Watford but last week gained a first win in the Professional Development League with a 2-1 win at Cardiff.

1718 burnley scott wilson 00 500x500Tomorrow, Millwall are the visitors to Gawthorpe and, with the first team not playing until Sunday, I have got my first chance to see our under-18s in action under new coach Danny Cadamarteri.

I’ve spoken to some who were at the Watford game and they said that it was never a 4-1 sort of game and it was one we could so easily have got something from. Cadamarteri himself said about the first two games: “in some ways we played better football in the first game, but it was good to see we had learned the lessons from that.

“We scored a couple of good goals (at Cardiff) and could have had one or two more. Hopefully we can move it on again tomorrow.”

Burnley will face a Millwall side who have started the season well with two 3-1 wins. Two weeks ago they won at Birmingham and last week repeated the scoreline in their first home game against Sheffield United.

The Clarets will have three second year scholars available tomorrow who have missed the first two games because of their involvement with the under-23s who are next in action against Bristol City next Tuesday night. The three are central defenders Oliver Younger and Scott Wilson (pictured) and winger Dwight McNeil.

All are in the team which is expected to be: Adam Bruce, James Clarke, Oliver Younger, Scott Wilson, Kwasinkosi Mpofu, Dylon Meredith, Dan Moss, Ethan Kershaw, Kian Yari, Dwight McNeil, Michael Fowler. Subs: Marcel Wusiewicz, Leighton Egan, Richard Taylor, Bobby Thomas, Will Harris.

Kick off tomorrow is 11 a.m.
