The youth team are back in league action at Gawthorpe tomorrow morning and the home fixture against Tranmere Rovers will be our first home league game in eleven weeks.

That last home game came on 10th December when we beat Rochdale 4-0. The scorers that day were James Taylor, who is no longer with the club, Shay McCartan(2) and Cameron Howieson.
We've played three cup ties since, two in the FA Youth Cup, and one league game, a 5-2 win at Accrington seven weeks ago when the goals came from Jason Gilchrist(2), McCartan, Steven Hewitt and Adam Evans.
Tranmere are one of the teams we only face once this season and so there is no away game to look back at. They are having a decent season and are in fifth place in the table, five points behind us and having played a game more.
We'll be looking to get back on top of the table as soon as possible having lost it to Preston who won last week. They are two points clear of us and have also played a game more.
Terry Pashley makes three changes from the team that started when we won at West Brom in the FA Youth Cup. Ben Woodhead, too old to play in the FA Youth Cup, comes in for Josh Cook.
Captain Tom Anderson is rested having played a full ninety minutes for the reserves and Archie Love is also out having had surgery on his hand having suffered a broken bone during that win at West Brom.
All three are on the bench with Jack Errington replacing Anderson and Alex Mullin, used as a sub in the cup win, coming into the midfield for Love.
The game kicks off at 11:00 a.m. tomorrow at Gawthorpe.
The Burnley team is: Ben Woodhead, Aryn Williams, Alex Coleman, Jack Errington, Luke Conlan, Adam Evans, Alex Mullin, Steven Hewitt, Cameron Howieson, Shay McCartan, Jason Gilchrist. Subs: Josh Cook, Tom Anderson, Archie Love, Luke Daly.
