Burnley have the first pre-season friendly of the summer against traditional hosts, Accrington Stanley this Saturday.

Garreth O’Connor is the only player still in the squad who has not been named. The lad is currently training with former club AFC Bournemouth with a a view to a loan move

New arrivals, Robbie Blake, Gabor Kiraly and Besart Berisha are all expected to make their debuts. It is also believed Jay Rodriguez who signed professional terms this summer could also make his debut appearance in a senior match.

The match kicks-off at 3pm and with all Clarets fans being able to pay on the day at the Fraser Eagle Stadium, with admission priced at £10 for adults, £5 concessions and £2 for under 5’s.

Well its going to be difficult to predict the starting eleven from the full squad but we can expect all of them to feature at some point

Kiraly, Jensen, Thomas, Duff, Foster, Harley, Caldwell, J O’Connor, Mahon, Elliott, McCann, Spicer, Gudjonsson, Jones, Akinbiyi, Gray, Lafferty, Berisha, Blake and Rodriguez.

Graham Branch has of course also just signed for Accrington Stanley after his Clarets testimonial year and being released in the Summer. No doubt he could well be lining up already against his former team mates
