Scottish Under 21 international, Kevin McDonald is having a great week.
He celebrated his 21st birthday before notching up his first ever goal in the Barclays Premier League to score our third and equalising goal against Manchester City at Eastlands. The game finished 3-3 and at long last the Clarets had a point from their travels this season. Indeed that was our first point in the top flight since April 1976 when we beat Newcastle 1-0 at St James Park thanks to a Pater Noble goal.
Curiously enough that was also our first draw of the season home or away and in somewhat of a co-incidence the last time we drew in the top flight was also against Manchester City. That match though was played at Turf Moor in March 1976 and finished 0-0. That was also the score at Maine Road when we played them earlier in the season in October 1975.
Anyway,let's get back to Kevin!
We all know its an International break now but there will not be any rest for some of our lads after being called up by their national teams at full and under 21 level.
One such player is Kevin McDonald, who along with Brian Easton has been called up into the Scotland Under-21 squad.
This saturday(14th November),the Scottish Under 21 side have a UEFA Under 21 Championship qualifying game away to Azerbaijan in Baku (Kick Off 7:00pm
McDonald will be hoping to play and help his team edge closer to qualificiation for the finals of the competition.
His confidence of course could not be higher after his goal for the Clarets last saturday.
Speaking about his exciting week, McDonald said:
'It was brilliant for me to get the goal and great for the team to get a draw. No-one expected us to go there and get anything. So to get a draw and to get a goal for myself was an added bonus.It was a great occasion for me scoring my first Premiership goal and it was my birthday that week as well so it was just a great week for me.'
Scotland Under 21 are currently joint top of the table with Austria and Belarus and will be looking to progress further against the bottom club in the table.
Good luck Kevin and indeed all our boys on international duty this weekend.
