Numbers up at Wrexham!

Burnley FC are in Wales at the moment preparing for tonight's friendly against Wrexham. The fans also got confirmation of the players' squad numbers for the 2007/08 season as follows:

1 Gabor Kiraly

2 Steve Foster

3 Jon Harley

4 Michael Duff

5 Wayne Thomas

6 Steve Caldwell

7 James O'Connor

8 Joey Gudjonsson

9 Ade Akinbiyi

10 Andy Gray

11 Wade Elliott

12 Brian Jensen

14 Steve Jones

15 John Spicer

16 Chris McCann

17 Kyle Lafferty

18 Alan Mahon

19 Jay Rodriguez

20 Robbie Blake

22 Besart Berisha

23 Stephen Jordan

Tonight's match at The Racecourse Ground kicks-off at 7.30pm.

Admission will be 10 for adults with 5 concessions, and Clarets fans are asked to use the Eric Roberts Stand, through turnstiles 40-42.

The Clarets will no doubt continue their experimentation with tactics and line-ups tonight and we can probably expect to see all new signings during some stage of the game, including the first appearance of yesterday's signing Stephen Jordan. If the reported knocks to Thomas, Gudjonsson and Jones have also healed up by now, its more than likely they will make their first appearance having missed the opportunity against Accrington last Saturday.

Wrexham lost to our East Lancs rivals, Blackburn Rovers in thier recent friendly, so lets make it a double for East Lancashire! A match report will be provided on Vital Burnley FC after the game.

1:0 up !!17th minute the Clarets grabbed the lead. Jones was fouled at the by-line and when Harley pulled the resulting free kick back to Berisha and his shot was half blocked, Gray was there to pick up the pieces inside the six-yards out. There was a blow for Burnley in the 26th minute when Lafferty, who needed treatment for an early knock to the ankle, was carried off in distress following a further injury. Blake replaced the Irish teenager, heading straight into an attacking role alongside Gray. Burnley (first half): Jensen, Foster, Duff, Caldwell, Harley, Berisha, J O'Connor, Spicer, Jones, Gray, Lafferty (Blake 28). Subs: Kiraly, Gudjonsson, Akinbiyi, Mahon, Rodriguez, Blake, Jordan.

Make that 2-0 up!! Official site: "Four minutes before the break Gray helped himself to a second. Blake found the targetman with a low cross and last season's top scorer nonchalantly headed home from six yards out."
