A reminder that Turf Moor will host the semi-final of the Lancashire FA Youth Cup tonight when Burnley face Blackpool with the winners having the prospect of a final against Preston North End at Deepdale to look forward to.
Burnley have played just one match in the competition this season, prior to tonight's game. That was in October when we beat Accrington Stanley 4-0 at the Crown Ground. Jason Gilchrist scored twice, Steven Hewitt was also on the score sheet with an own goal completing the scoring.
Should we win tonight then the final will be a repeat of the last occasion we reached that stage of the competition three years ago. Also played at Deepdale, we lost 3-2 with our goals coming from Dominic Knowles and Michael King.
For completeness, the results for this season's competition are below.
Accrington 0 Burnley 4
Blackpool 3 Tranmere 2
Preston 5 Bury 0
Rochdale 2 Oldham 3
Burnley v Blackpool
Oldham 1 Preston 3
Preston v Burnley or Blackpool
