WBA v Burnley

WBA 0 v 0 Burnley (Development Friendly)

A strong Burnley side ground out a stalemate with WBA in a behind closed doors friendly in the Midlands on Tuesday.

Returning striker Ashley Barnes came through another game unscathed, while there was also valuable game time for many of Sean Dyche’s first team squad, including Dean Marney and Michael Duff and Lloyd Dyer.


Barnes came closest to scoring for the Clarets in the first half, in which Matt Gilks made a terrific save to keep the game goalless.

Burnley stepped things up after the break, but couldn’t make the breakthrough against a strong Albion side that also included many of their first team squad.


Senior Development Coach Michael Jolley said, “Both clubs put out strong teams and there was a good standard.

It was a tight game with not too many chances, Barnes went close to opening the scoring. He and Dan Agyei linked up well in the second half, where we were the better side.

Overall, it was a really solid performance from our boys and everyone came through unscathed with no injuries, which is the main thing.”
