BURNLEY Development squad boss Michael Duff was disappointed to see his side’s clash with Hull City abandoned on Monday night as the wait for an Under-23 game goes on.
Burnley were leading 1-0 thanks to a Rahis Nabi goal when fog enveloped Curzon Ashton’s Tameside Stadium causing referee Leigh Doughty to abandon the game after just 34 minutes.
Duff’s side do not play again until the new year having last completed a game on November 20.
“The referee’s given it a chance,” the Clarets U23 boss said of Monday’s postponement. “He’s given it a go. From what you could see the lads did okay, winning the game 1-0.
“It’s just disappointing because we’ve waited a long time for a game. It’s been almost a month since we’ve played and you get that and then it’s another two or three weeks before the next game.
“But there’s not a lot you can do about the weather.”
Burnley return to action away at Leeds United on January 5 with a new date for the Hull game yet to be announced.
Burnley: Stone, Birch, Flowers, Clarke, Mpofu, Bayode, Nabi, N’Guessan, Chakwana, McNeil, Wood. Subs: King, Metz, Cropper, Younger, Limb.
