Youths kick off the weekend against Hull
By tea time on Monday our three main teams will all have played another league game and tomorrow, as is often the case, the under-18s kick things off with a home game against Hull City.
We’ll be looking to build on a good run of form which has seen us win three and draw one of our last four league and cup games, scoring twelve goals too in those games. That run of results started with a 3-0 league win at Wigan before we beat Oldham 4-1 at Gawthorpe in the Lancashire Youth Cup. A disappointment followed when we could only draw at home against lowly Bolton but we put things right last week with a big 4-1 win at Birmingham.
Last week’s win saw us move up to fifth in the table but we have played less games than all but Sheffield United and a win tomorrow would move us closer to that group of teams ahead of us.
Our opponents Hull are currently in eighth place but will go ahead of us should they beat us. They are currently two points behind us having played three more games. They go into the game having been beaten 3-0 at Wigan last week. They’d lost against Barnsley in the previous week and their last points came in a 3-0 win at Hull three weeks ago.
In the two previous seasons we’ve been in this league, we’ve recorded victories in the home game against Hull. Two seasons ago we won 4-1 in the penultimate game of the season. Michael Fowler scored a hat trick with Tristan Jumeau also on the scoresheet with his last ever Burnley goal.
Last season it was 3-1 when Mitch George, Ne-Jai Tucker (pictured) and Terry Mupariwa scored the goals. It was a final Burnley goal too for Mupariwa.
Tomorrow’s game kicks off later than usual with a 12 noon start at Gawthorpe.Share this page :
