Match Preview | Burnley

22 August 2022

Shrewsbury Town host Championship side Burnley FC on Tuesday night in the second round of the EFL Cup, sponsored by Carabao.

Salop drew the Clarets after beating League Two side Carlisle United 3-2 in the first round earlier this month. Luke Leahy and Daniel Udoh scored that night but it was Chey Dunkley who got the winner in the latter stages of the game to send Town through.

Shrewsbury head into the tie off the back of a 3-0 defeat against table-toppers Ipswich Town on Saturday. Burnley meanwhile had to settle for a point in their last outing, drawing 3-3 at home to Blackpool in the Championship. Josh Brownhill had opened the scoring in the opening minutes before a Nathan Tella brace helped his side go 3-1 up at half-time. Blackpool fought back though, scoring twice in the second half. The Clarets have started their season with three draws, a win and a defeat so far.

In the last competitive fixture against Burnley, Shrewsbury won 2-1 at home in 1997, in what was then called the Football League Second Division. In total, 14 games have been played between the sides, with Town winning six, drawing three and five ending in defeat.

Match Report | Shrewsbury Town 0-1 Burnley

23 August 2022

Steve Cotterill's Shrewsbury fell to a 1-0 defeat against Championship side Burnley in the Carabao Cup at Montgomery's Waters Meadow on Tuesday night.

Burnley dominated the cup tie with 81% possession however, Shrewsbury's resilient back line prevented them from having many chances.

The game's only goal came through Samuel Bastien as he rifled home from inside the box.

Shrewsbury's best chance of the night came in the dying minutes of the encounter as Chey Dunkley headed home a Luke Leahy cross. However, the goal was ruled offside.

Shrewsbury boss Cotterill opted for a 3-4-3 formation against the Clarets, with Ryan Bowman leading the line.

Youngsters Charlie Caton and Tom Bloxham were deployed as the wingers, with the versatile Jordan Shipley at left wing-back.

Burnley lined up in a 4-2-3-1 system. Ashley Barnes led the line, Manuel Benson and Johann Gudmundson were the widemen, and new summer signing Darko Churlinov sat in the advanced midfield role.

In an evenly contested opening 20 minutes, it was Shrewsbury who came closest to breaking the deadlock.

Leahy drilled in a powerful cross that was met by Matthew Pennington. But his strike was brilliantly kept out by Bailey Peacock-Farrell.

Burnley created their first real chance midway through the half as Barnes played a ball into the box. Churlinov was there to meet it, but his shot from inside the box sailed wide.

The Clarets went close again on the half-hour mark when Benson darted into the area before curling a strike at goal which Tom Flanagan did well to block.

A few minutes after, Burnley had another attempt to open the scoring as they played a slick sequence of passes down the right-hand side.

Matt Lowton then sent in a cross which Gudmundsson turned over the bar at the back post.

Burnley were seeing a lot of the ball, but an organised Shrewsbury were largely keeping them at bay.

Cotterill's men had another chance to open the scoring just before the break.

Leahy whipped in a corner in front of the blue and amber crowd that was met by Dunkley. But his header flew over the bar.

Five minutes into the second half, Burnley opened the scoring through Bastien as he converted into the bottom corner from inside the box.

The Clarets worked the ball down the left and they were able to evade the Shrews' pressure. Nathan Tella sent a low-driven cross into the box that Bastien met at the back post.

On the hour the mark, the two Shrewsbury academy graduates linked up to create a chance to draw level.

Bloxham and Caton played the ball between themselves in the middle of the park before Bloxham was able to dart away from the Burnley defence and was through on goal.

But his low-driven shot was saved by the Northern Irish stop stopper Peacock-Farrell.

Shrewsbury had a late chance to pull level as Luke Leahy delivered a wonderfully timed ball into the box.

Dunkley headed the oncoming ball into the back of the net for what seemed the leveller. But the flag went up for offside and Salop were condemned to defeat.
