BURNLEY boss Michael Duff was pleased to see his youngsters register their first win of the U23 Professional Development League thanks to a 2-0 win over Ipswich.

The young Clarets are playing their first season in the competition after their Academy was upgraded over the summer.

And goals in either half from Dan Agyei and substitute Olatunde Bayode handed them the win.

Duff said: “It was a positive game for us. They were quite young but you can only beat what is in front of you.

“The first 45 minutes in particular we moved the ball really well and created numerous opportunities.

“We could have been out of sight but they grew into it and it got a little bit squeaky at times.”

Along with Agyei, Burnley fielded Tom Anderson and Freddie Ulvestad as well as goalkeeper Adam Legzdins with the quartet all having trained with the first team this season.

Duff added: “All four of the lads who dropped down from the first team showed the mentality and culture of the club,” Duff added.

“They just come in, get on with it, do the right things, no egos or ‘I’m too good to play in this,’ which is a great example for our lads looking up and I thought they were particularly good."

Burnley: Legzdins, Birch, Wilson, Anderson, Younger, Ulvestad, Nabi, Chakwana, McNeil (Bayiode 65), Metz (Limb 60), Agyei. Subs not used: Stone, Flowers, Thomas.
