Trio Return in Hull of a Reserve Match

Trio Return in Hull of a Reserve Match

New Burnley manager,Brian Laws will get a close look at three more of his squad tonight following news that Paterson,McCann and Rodriguez are all fit to play after recovering from long-term injuries.

They will play tonight(Tuesday)in a reserves match away against Hull City which is further good news as the new manager prepares to try and keep Burnley in the top flight. The game will be played at the North Ferriby FC ground (Kick-off 7pm)

Jat Rodriguez broke his ankle in the home reserves encounter between these two teams back in September completing a miserable month for the Clarets who also lost Martin Paterson and Chris McCann.

Paterson picked up a torn cartilage in our Carling Cup defeat against Barnsley at Oakwell. In the previous game against Sunderland at Turf Moor, Chris McCann damaged both his cruciate and medial ligaments but has since made a miraculous recovery after fears he could be out for the rest of the season.

Brian Laws will also take the opportunity to field a strong team tonight in order to take a closer look at some of his fringe players and get familiar with their talent and style of play.

The starting eleven is expected to include Penny, Eckersley, Easton, Gudjonsson, Guerrero and Blake in addition to the returning stars.

This couldn't have come at a better time really. Well done lads! Place your bets for Pato and McCann to play against Reading and/or Bolton?

Pretty sure North Ferriby United play in the Unibond Premier. Looks quite a strong team tonight as TMP has pointed out. Looks like BL is having a good look at as many players as he can.

Laptop playing up may have to buy a proper PC thingy! No network connection today what ever that means! Could have gone to Ferriby too. Its just 50 minutes away. I hope Penny plays well and gets a game on Saturday too.
