Lancashire Telegraph: Jason Gilchrist scored for Burnley Jason Gilchrist scored for Burnley

BURNLEY missed out on a place in the inaugural Under 21 Premier League Cup final, but gave a good account of themselves against their Premier League counterparts.

The Clarets twice came back from behind to have a Manchester City side on edge, until Sinan Bytyqi popped up with his second on the night in the 75th minute to clinch it for Patrick Vieira's side.

Bytyqi put City ahead in the ninth minute but Cameron Dummigan levelled for Burnley.

It was 2-1 five minutes before half time as Jordy Mayifuila netted again for City, but Jason Gilchrist made it 2-2 in the 65th minute before Bytyqi struck the winner.

Unlucky with the result but all accounts are suggesting that you did Burnley proud. Fortunately there's a 2nd leg to turn it around and I'll be there to support you.

Like to think so one day, but too big a jump at the moment.
Dont worry, l'm sure Sean is coming up with a system right now to see us over the line.

No return leg I am afraid - the final is over two legs but the semi-final is a one leg winner take all.

Remember this is under 21,not 18,so surely Jason Gilchrist for example is ready to be called .How old is he, if they're good enough,they're old enough.Only one way to find out.Remember Trevor Steven,Steve Kindon,Leighton James,Dave Thomas to name but a few,all well under 21 when first team regulars.What about Barclay at Everton or Sterling at Liverpool,being tipped for the world cup,How old was Jay Rod when he was in the 1st team,some come in with a bang,some don't,but unless you give it a go,you'll never know.

He's training with the first team this week and apparently will be getting a place in the squad on Saturday.

Personally I would start him up top with Barnes, why not? Better to play a natural (if young) striker up front than a converted winger or midfielder.

Completely agree with both, anyone remember Michael Owen? Not saying either are the next Owen but how would caution ever tell us if they are? What message does it tell them if they get no opportunity?

Exactly - Gilchrist is 19 now and has been scoring goals for fun in the development and U21 squads and he got a hat-trick at Old Trafford in the FA Youth Cup so he knows where the net is.

If he can't get a place on the bench when we have ONE fit striker then what use is the development squad?
