Burnley Match Preview

31 August 2020

North End’s next pre-season game sees Burnley make the short trip from East Lancashire for the first of three games against Premier League sides this week.

PNE To Face Burnley In Pre-Season Friendly

30 August 2020

Sean Dyche’s team come to Deepdale for a 2pm kick-off on Tuesday, which is followed by games at Bramall Lane, versus Sheffield United and then Goodison Park against Everton on Friday and Saturday respectively.

The options open to manager Alex are shrunk by the international call-ups, with Alan Browne and Sean Maguire away with Ireland, whilst Declan Rudd and Darnell Fisher are both still likely to miss out, along with Louis Moult.

Burnley too will have players away with their countries, including first and second choice goalkeepers Nick Pope (England) and Bailey Peacock-Farrell (Northern Ireland), meaning that Will Norris, a summer signing from Wolves, could start between the sticks.

Robbie Brady will be away with Maguire and Browne in Stephen Kenny’s first Ireland squad, as they face two Nations League games in preparation for their all-important Play-Off for the Euros, that will be played in the October international break.

Ben Davies Looks Ahead To ‘Three Good Tests’

31 August 2020

With eight players having got 90 minutes under their belts for Alex Neil’s side at the weekend, those who didn’t start in the Carabao Cup win over Mansfield Town are likely to build up their match sharpness, with the likes of Daniel Johnson, Paul Gallagher and Andrew Hughes – who were all left out of the 18 to face the stags, expected to get significant game time, along with unused subs Ben Davies, Billy Bodin and Jayden Stockley.

We are unable to stream this fixture live, but we will have coverage on our social media channels, with highlights on iFollow PNE after the game. Live streaming will return for the two following games, with iFollow PNE providing full 90 coverage from both the homes of the Blades and the Toffees.

The referee of Tuesday’s game against the Clarets will be Jeremy Simpson, who will be assisted by Richard Wild and Phil Dermott and the fourth official will be Conor Brown.

The Lilywhites will be in their new home strip, as worn in competitive action for the first time in Saturday’s 4-0 first round league cup effort and the visitors will be in their usual home kit of claret and blue shirts, white shorts and socks.

Match Reports

Preston North End 0 Burnley 0

1 September 2020

Alex Neil’s side were denied a pre-season win over Premier League Burnley by the lack of HawkEye at Deepdale on Tuesday afternoon.

Just before half-time Scott Sinclair smashed an effort that was headed onto the cross bar by a Clarets centre half, but the ball came down behind the line and then bounced clear, but the officials did not see it and without the technology, the goal was not awarded.

And despite having the better chances on the afternoon, the game finished goalless.

It was a completely different outfield line-up to the one that were victorious in the EFL Cup three days earlier, whilst Burnley had a powerful looking frontline including Chris Wood, Jay Rodriguez and Dwight McNeil.

The Lilywhites started brightly in the warm September sunshine, with Billy Bodin capitalising on a mistake by young centre half Bobby Thomas and almost closing down Will Norris in the visitors’ goal, the former Wolves custodian just getting the ball clear at the feet of the onrushing Welshman.

McNeil, who was surprisingly left out of England’s U21 squad this week, saw a snap shot saved low to his right by Connor Ripley – playing 90 minutes for the second game in succession, but after the first half drinks break the home side were on top.

On the half hour mark, Sinclair saw an effort blocked by Thomas, after a superb defence-splitting through ball by skipper Paul Gallagher and shortly after Bodin saw a right-footed effort saved by Norris.

Six minutes before the interview, PNE’s No.39 was brought down by Jimmy Dunne just inches outside the penalty area and Gallagher fired a vicious free kick past the wall, with Norris making a superb stop, at full stretch, push the ball around his left-hand post and out for a corner.

Just before the break came the controversial moment that could have broken the deadlock. A Gallagher cross from the right was powered deep into the six yard box and headed down by Jayden Stockley perfectly into the path of Sinclair who fired on target, with Phil Bardsley getting his head on the ball, but it came off the bar, down behind him and out, with referee Jeremy Simpson and his assistant at that end, Phil Dermott neither seeing the ball had crossed the line and without the HawkEye system, no goal was given.

After the half-time break it was PNE who continued to be on the front foot; more good play from Stockley – this time down the left – saw him create space, before reversing the ball back to the former Celtic man, but his curling effort was wide of the right-hand post.

With 17 minutes left, some clever footwork from Bodin, saw him backheel the ball from the edge of the box to create space for Johnson and Sinclair, but neither could get the ball out from under their feet and between Dunne and Thomas they were able to smother the ball away.

Jordan Storey – who did well against Wood and Rodriguez, alongside Ben Davies – went close with 13 minutes left, heading a Gallagher free kick from the left just over the bar.

But, as is always the case, the side had to be wary to the last, with Ripley making a good save low to his left with a minute to go, to deny Swedish substitute Joel Mumbongo from grabbing a winner for Sean Dyche’s men, which would have been very much against the run of play.

PNE line-up: Ripley, Rafferty, Hughes, Ledson, Storey, Davies, Bodin (Barkhuizen, 81), Gallagher (c) (Potts, 78), Stockley, Johnson (Bayliss, 81), Sinclair. Subs not used: Hudson, Earl, Pearson, Bauer, Harrop, Huntington.

Burnley line-up: Norris (Jensen, 46), Bardsley (Lowton, 61), Dunne, Thomas, Taylor (Pieters, 61), Gudmundsson (Goodridge, 71), Brownhill (Elva-Fountaine, 81), Westwood (c) (Benson, 61), McNeil (Richardson, 81), Wood (Vydra, 61), Rodriguez (Mumbongo, 71). Subs not used: Richter, Thompson.

Referee: Mr J Simpson
