The home game against them was played back in August, on the day the first team were at Crystal Palace, and we won the game 1-0 with a Shay McCartan penalty.

We are currently on a run of wins that extends back to the beginning of October. We kicked off that month, on the first day, with a 2-1 win against Rochdale and have won every game since. That's a total of eleven games. Seven of them have come in the Youth Alliance League, two in the Youth Alliance Cup and one each in the FA & Lancs FA Youth Cups.

During that run we've scored a total of 39 goals with the two strikers, Jason Gilchrist and McCartan having scored 12 and 8 respectively and both of them line up tomorrow as we look to make it win number 12 ahead of next week's FA Youth Cup tie against Ipswich Town.

The Burnley team tomorrow is: Josh Cook, Alex Coleman, Jack Errington, Tom Anderson, Luke Conlan, Adam Evans, Steven Hewitt, Alex Mullin, Cameron Howieson, Jason Gilchrist, Shay McCartan. Subs: Ben Woodhead, Aryn Williams, Charlie, Holt, Lewis Nuttall.
