DANNY Drinkwater and Bailey Peacock-Farrell made their Burnley bows for the Under-23s in their 1-1 draw with Coventry yesterday. 

Drinkwater, a deadline-day loan signing from Chelsea, has arrived short of match fitness and played the first 45 minutes. 

The 29-year-old midfielder could be handed more game time later this week.  

Peacock-Farrell played the full 90 minutes of the game on his maiden Clarets outing between the sticks. 

The goalkeeper was beaten 15 minutes in with a long ball over the top from Junior Brown allowing Max Biamou to get in behind the Clarets’ defence with the striker lifting the ball over the Northern Ireland international.

Steve Stone's side then created a host of chances but couldn't find a way through in the first half. 

Drinkwater had one effort himself that went over the crossbar with the Premier League winner with Leicester also laying on a chance for Rob Harker. 

The opportunities kept coming in the second half but it wasn't until 10 minutes from time that the Clarets ensured their unbeaten start to the Professional Development League season continued. 

Tunde Bayode got the goal that made sure Burnley got the least they deserved, Anthony Glennon created the opening with a fine diagonal ball to Bayode and the winger went it alone to cut in and bury a fierce, angled strike into the top corner.
