1-1 half time and we changed our whole 11. Second half including James Clarke and stone so youthful, Ollie Clarke played and scored. Finished 4-2.

It is allowed providing his actions do not make money for his employer.

This was stated when players, on furlough, started training after lockdown. They were allowed to do so whilst the club was not benefitting financially.

Midfielder Ollie Clarke and striker Danny Rose were on the scoresheet for the Stags this afternoon as they fell to a 4-2 defeat to Premier League Burnley in a behind-closed-doors friendly.

Clarke opened the scoring with a super goal before the Clarets responded through Josh Brownhill before half-time.

After wholesale changes to the Mansfield XI at the break, Burnley added to their lead via a Chris Wood brace and a Bobby Thomas header.



On the stroke of full-time, the amber and blue pulled a late goal back through Rose.

STAGS’ FIRST-HALF XI: Stech, Menayese, O’Driscoll, Sweeney, O’Keeffe, Smith, O. Clarke, Benning, Sinclair, Maynard, Bowery.

STAGS’ SECOND-HALF XI: Stone, J. Clarke, Rawson, Walker, Gordon, Perch, Law, Charsley, Maris, Reid, Rose.

UNUSED SUBS: Campbell, Scott.

No Andy Cook?

Has Aaron O'Driscoll moved up in the pecking order over Farrend Rawson after Farrend's poor defending last Saturday?

It says in the article that Cook and Knowles were both rested.

I think you are reading too much into the 2 line ups. Unless, under your assumption, Smith, Sinclair and Bowery have moved above Perch, Charsley, Maris and Rose !!

it is allowed. But that's not correct oldweststander.

It's called flexible furlough. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/flex ... arts-today

If you are drilling your defence ready for the first league game then you would normally keep your first choice defenders together. Wouldn't surprise me if we see the same defence against Man City.

James Perch was not great against Rotherham and PNE so may not start against Tranmere. He could play Ollie Clarke in the holding midfield position if he is fit and does well or Clarke could replace George Maris. I think Harry Charsley will start in midfield because of his pressing and he scored a goal against Barnsley. I expect Cook and Rose to start up front.

REPORT: Burnley 4 Mansfield Town 2
Successful run out for Clarets in victory over Stags

https://www.burnleyfootballclub.com/new ... ld-town-2/

The Clarets cruised past Mansfield Town, as Sean Dyche’s men continued their pre-season programme, following a midweek draw at Preston North End.

Despite the Stags taking the lead through Ollie Clarke’s wonder strike, Josh Brownhill pulled the scores level from a free kick just before the break.

Before a second half brace from Chris Wood and another set-piece goal from youngster Bobby Thomas sealed the win, despite a late consolation goal from the visitors.

Mansfield started bright and came close early on, as former Aston Villa and Chesterfield striker Jordan Bowery fired an effort just wide of the post.

Burnley youngster Ne-Jai Tucker was looking lively in the opening stages and saw a header saved by Marek Stech, before seeing a dangerous cross cleared away by Ryan Sweeney.

As both sides were settling into the game, Mace Goodridge made a couple of impressive challenges, as the away side look to break through the Clarets’ midfield.

However, the visitors did take the lead moments later though, as the ball fell nicely to Clarke, who fired home from outside the box, to give the League Two outfit the lead.

The hosts came close to drawing level instantly though, as Phil Bardsley’s pin-point cross found Matej Vydra, whose sweetly connected header was saved by the towering Stech.

But as half-time approached, Burnley were awarded a free kick just outside the area, after a foul on McNeil.

Brownhill stepped up and curled the ball home terrifically into the top corner, to draw the scores level just before the break.

The home side were enjoying plenty of possession, as the new look Mansfield side with 11 changes at the break, struggled to really come out the blocks in the second period.

It didn’t take long for the Clarets to take the lead in the second half, as Wood slotted home from close range, after connecting onto McNeil’s in swinging cross just 10 minutes into the second 45.

And Burnley added a third five minutes later, as Thomas rose highest from a corner to crash a header home, for his second in three games for Dyche’s side in pre-season.

Centre-back partner Jimmy Dunne then came close to adding a fourth, after seeing a header hit the post, before seeing a second effort excellently denied by former Claret Aidan Stone between the sticks.

But the hosts did grab a fourth with 10 minutes to play, after a lovely build-up, Wood raced forward into the area and smashed the ball home to put the game out of sight.

The Stags did pull one back in the dying minutes of the game, after a low cross into the area came off the unfortunate Charlie Taylor and into the goal, as the defender looked to block the effort.

A good work out overall and 90 minutes in the legs for everyone involved, as the Clarets close in on their Premier League season.

BURNLEY: Jensen, Bardsley, Thomas, Dunne, Taylor, Goodridge, Brownhill, Tucker, McNeil, Wood, Vydra.

Subs not used: Rain, Harker, Trialist, Trialist.

Burnley played two games at the same time. 12.30 pm kick off both games
