Coyle: Nugent will take on Stanley
Clarets boss Owen Coyle suggested the friendly fixture at Turf Moor to help Accrington raise the £308,000 needed to pay HM Customs and Revenue and avoid going out of business in less than eight weeks time. All proceeds from the game - which still needs to be ratified by the Premier League - will go to the League Two side. Coyle will also use the match to blood transfer deadline day recruit Nugent and play some of his senior squad who have not seen much game time in the opening weeks of the season. "I will be putting out a strong team," said Coyle. "It will be a chance for the fans to see 90 minutes for Fernando Guerrero and also first-team players like Chris Eagles and David Nugent. "The more Burnley fans who come, the better because it's a fantastic cause, and that's why we have priced it reasonably."
