Right back Waqas Azam

Oldham, under the charges of former Claret Tony Philliskirk, are usually strong at this level and got their season off to a flying start last week with a 2-1 away win against Preston. It was a performance that pleased Philliskirk as he saw his team come from a goal behind before going on to winning it.

Terry Pashley tomorrow includes four of his new first year scholars in the starting line up alongside six players who are now moving into their second year. They are joined by under-16 Andrew Nugent with Khius Metz, another under-16, included on the bench.

Those first year scholars are right back Waqas Azam, who had a very good game for the development squad at Rhyl in midweek, Brad Jackson and Christian Hill will be in the wide positions in midfield with Ntumba Massanka up front.

Two players not involved are second year scholar Cameron Dummigan and first year Jamie Frost. Both have been heavily involved with the development squad in pre-season and have not been included for tomorrow's game.

For anyone wishing to attend the game it will kick off at 11 a.m. at Oldham's Chapel Road training ground.

The postcode is OL8 4QL. Leave the M60 at Junction 22 and follow signs for Oldham (A62). At the third set of traffic lights turn right at the Bridgewater pub. The training ground is on the right hand side.

Burnley's team tomorrow is: Callum Jakovlevs, Waqas Azam, Callum Richardson, Alex Whitmore, Andy Nugent, Brad Jackson, Luke Daly, Nathan Lowe, Kevin Ly, Christian Hill, Ntumba Massanka. Subs: Conor Mitchell, Charlie Holt, Andreas Bianga, Lewis Nuttall, Khius Metz.
