There is every chance that, for the first time since 2008, there will be a Lafferty in a Burnley shirt today when the development squad face Wolves in a behind closed doors game.

With no reserve game for another couple of weeks, the club have arranged another game, this time against Premier League club Wolves and it will, according to reports, be played in the West Midlands.
The team is made up of young professionals, some youth team players, players on their way back from injury along with one, as yet unnamed, trialist who I believe to be Derry City left back Danny Lafferty who we were reported to be interested in a few days ago.
He'll play in a back four made up of Alex MacDonald, again at right back, and youth team pairing Alex Coleman and Tom Anderson and they'll play in front of goalkeeper Brian Jensen who will play his second game since returning from injury.
The game also sees Danny Ings get a first start for Burnley. Having played just under an hour last week in the Central League game against Preston at Chorley, he's named in the starting eleven as is young professional Ross Wilson who is also returning after some time out with injury.
Dave Lynch, who has returned from a loan spell at Stalybridge, has recovered from the injury sustained last week and takes his place in the following team:
Brian Jensen, Alex MacDonald, Alex Coleman, Tom Anderson, Danny Lafferty, Zavon Hines, Joe McKee, Dave Lynch, Ross Wilson, Dominic Knowles, Danny Ings. Subs: Ben Woodhead, Jack Errington, Steven Hewitt, Archie Love, Shay McCartan.
