Dobbo's first ever goal for the Clarets came against Manchester United. He scored the winner in a 2-1 Turf Moor win in February 1968. But on 16th January 1971, he scored our goal in a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford in front of the Match of the Day cameras and 39 years to the day he'll take his place on the bench.

Pash will be there too. He had a few games with the first team early in Coyle's time at Burnley and this week he's worked alongside Dobbo with the first team until Laws' arrival yesterday.

Laws and new assistant manager Russ Wilcox will be down there and they might have been joined by John Carver had he accepted the opportunity to join us as coach. It looked as though he might initially but decided to remain loyal to Paul Mariner at Plymouth.

With the search continuing to complete a backroom staff decimated by the exodus to Horwich, Laws has asked both Dobbo and Pash to join him. "I have asked Martin and Terry to join the coaching team and work with us in the short term as we look to build up the backroom team," he new boss said.

"Obviously the coaching staff was left decimated and both Martin and Terry did fantastically well in holding the fort. They are both Burnley through and through and I know they have the utmost respect of the lads.

"I think the world of them too, so it will be fantastic to have them alongside Russ and I when we go to Old Trafford this weekend."
