If you have Sky or Virgin Media TV you will able to watch our Reserves team play tonight in the Barclays Premier Reserve League. (Tuesday 16th February @7pm Kick-Off but will be shown 10:30pm)

The second-string Clarets will be playing Liverpool Reserves in our scheduled home match at Accrington Stanley’s Crown Ground.

Liverpool FC have the luxury of their own free channel (Liverpool TV) which is available on both Sky (Channel 434) and Virgin Media (Channel 544).The programme you need to watch tonight from 10:30pm is called ‘Reds in Reserve’

The same TV channel featured our earlier Reserves clash in the away fixture last year when we played them at Prenton Park. The match was memorable for two things. Owen Coyle decided to play and was hopeless whilst he also gave young keeper, Jonathan Lund his Clarets debut.

The Clarets played well that night and held Liverpool until the dying moments of the game before the Reds got a late goal to win 1-0.

The weather has affected the Reserves fixtures something rotten this season and this will be only our second home game having played just another seven on the road.

We are currently in 4th position just one place behind Liverpool with two games in hand although they do have a nine-point advantage.

Hopefully this time the game will go ahead without any effects from bad weather and it will be an ideal opportunity for exiled Clarets or those not going to the match to have a rare glimpse of some of our young up-and-coming players and those on the fringes of the first team.
