Burnley (H)

3 August 2012

The Clarets are up next for Mark Yates' Cheltenham Town this summer

The last home match of the 2012-13 pre-season is this weekend and it's Burnley who will be taking on the Robins here at the Abbey Business Stadium.

Eddie Howe's Clarets will be aiming to strengthen before the Championship season starts later this month and a competitive fixture against the Robins will be just what his team needs. Mark Yates has already seen his side beat Birmingham City last weekend but a 4-0 defeat to Cardiff was a reality check for the players.

Kick off is at 3pm tomorrow afternoon and supporters can pay on the turnstiles. All areas of the ground will be open but the paddock and canteen will be closed off for home supporters.

Ticket Prices

Adults - £10
Concessions/Juniors - £5

Team News

It is likely that new signing Chris Zebroski will play some role in this weekend's pre-season friendly. The striker left Bristol Rovers to join the Robins on a two year contract. There are no injury worries ahead of this game for Cheltenham.

Its believed that Burnley will be fielding a competitive side this weekend that could include former Cheltenham Town defender Michael Duff. The Northern Ireland international joined the Clarets from Cheltenham Town back in 2004 with Steve Cotterill as manager. The defender had joined up with the Robins for a number of training sessions towards the end of last season to build up his fitness.
