BURNLEY Under-23s will find out their Premier League Cup last-16 opponents on Monday afternoon, but skipper Anthony Glennon is relishing a run-in challenging on three fronts.

The Clarets youngsters beat West Brom 1-0 on Friday thanks to Dan Agyei's early goal to secure progress and face Blackburn Rovers in the Lancashire Senior Cup final next month.

Steve Stone's men are also riding high in the Professional Development League, sitting third, five points behind leaders Leeds United with a game in hand.

And 19-year-old Glennon believes the players and management deserve credit for their fine campaign thus far.

“It will be another one tough next, I’m sure," said Glennon of the Premier League cup draw.

"But since Steve has come in we’ve got to the final of the Lancashire Cup, we’re up there in the league and now we’re through in this.

“If you’d said that at the start of the season, you’d probably have said that was a bit of a long shot, but the lads have been excellent.

“Even in training we’ve worked hard. It’s a good group of lads, everyone gets on and I think we deserve everything we’ve got. It could be a big end of the season.”

The Clarets will be at home in the next round of the Premier League Cup having topped a group that also included Liverpool and Bournemouth, with the latter, who beat Burnley 7-1 in the opening match, qualifying in second spot.

“It’s a great feeling, especially after a tough start at Bournemouth,” added the former Liverpool defender.

“That was a big defeat and it was tough. But I think since Steve has come in, he has given us confidence and he has said to us before every game ‘go and do it for yourselves’.

“I think the lads have taken to that and done excellent to bounce back. I think we deserved to go through in the end.

“We didn’t have much of the ball against West Brom and it was a different game-plan and style of play, but I thought the lads took it really well and it’s good to go through.”
