The good news for Burnley fans is that the only Thunder expected is in the name of the opponents. Thunder storms held up the Thunder v Railhawks game last week but the forecast ahead of the game is good with no storms and therefore no hold ups expected.
Owen Coyle is looking forward to the game this evening and said: "Naturally everything is geared towards conditioning our players for when the Championship season starts, but it is important that we treat these games importantly as part of our build up.
"There will be quite a few Burnley fans that will be in the stadium to watch us and it never ceases to amaze me that supporters pop up wherever we go. But there is also a serious side to the trip involving the games and I know Minnesota will provide us with stern opposition, so we look forward to it greatly."
Coyle has said he intends using as many of his squad as possible again and there could be some action for those players who didn't feature during the 2-1 defeat against Cary Railhawks last Thursday.
The game kicks off at 7:35 p.m. Central Time and that means a 1:35 a.m. kick off for us turning to the online viewing here in Burnley and the rest of the UK.
