Matej Vydra was on target as Burnley played out a behind-closed-doors 1-1 draw with Preston at Turf Moor on Saturday. 

The Czech striker could start with Jay Rodriguez when the Clarets return to action at Manchester City on June 22 with injury concerns over both Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood. 

Vydra fired home just after the quarter hour against North End having scored twice in a training ground game a few days prior. 

The Championship visitors ensured things ended honours even thanks to a goal from Scott Sinclair early in the second half. 

As well as providing some match fitness, the game gave the Clarets chance to get used to playing in an empty Turf Moor.

“It’s getting your eye in and the sharpness," said boss Sean Dyche prior to the game.

“That’s going to be difficult because in a pre-season scenario, which this kind of is, you’d have as many as five friendlies.

“To go into this scenario, you’re probably looking at more like two and after quite a long break.

“But this is the challenge. They are peculiar times for us all. We work according to the best we can to be right and ready to deliver performance. The players are looking clear-eyed to get on with the task.”
