Premier League newbies Burnley claimed a narrow win over Accrington Stanley.

19-year-old Jason Gilchrist scored the only goal of the game as Burnley edged past League Two Accrington Stanley in a pre-season friendly.

After the match Dyche told Sky Sports News:

It’s really about fitness. I thought it was a good game for that reason. We had a really mixed group, a lot of young players.

The one thing that we know is that there are gaps in our team. And we’ve got to fill them. There is a lot of work to be done with these young players to get them to first team level.
