Matej Vydra was on target as Burnley played out a behind-closed-doors 1-1 draw with Preston at Turf Moor on Saturday. As well as providing some match fitness, the game gave the Clarets chance to get used to playing in an empty Turf Moor. The clarets will return to action with their first game being against Manchester City on 22nd June.
Sean Dyche said “It’s getting your eye in and the sharpness, 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.”
