Farrell Picks Out The Positives

Andy Farrell believes there are plenty of positives to take from his side's 2-1 defeat at Blackburn Rovers this afternoon in the Premier League Cup.

Burnley's 17-match unbeaten run, extending all the way back to the first game of the season, came to an end this afternoon at Ewood Park, against a Blackburn side boasting over 300 professional appearances, in Dominic Samuel, Harry Chapman, Ben Gladwin and £7m signing Ben Brereton.

Former Reading and Coventry City striker Samuel gave the hosts the lead, before Jacob Davenport doubled Rovers' lead.

But Rob Harker clawed one back for the away side in a very dominant second-half display from Burnley.
