Van Aken in action but under-23s beaten

Wednesday’s under-23s went down 4-2 to Burnley at Middlewood Road on Monday afternoon.

Joost van Aken played for 45 minutes as he continues his comeback from injury while Joe Wildsmith was the other established first-teamer in the starting eleven.

We trailed 2-1 at half-time, Jack Stobbs having equalised from the penalty spot, and the visitors increased their lead to 4-1 before Fraser Preston headed a late second goal for the Owls.
