BURNLEY were given a big boost yesterday when Michael Kightly featured for the first time in pre-season.

The winger, who underwent minor knee injury in the close season, played 63 minutes as a Clarets development side beat Fleetwood Town 3-0 at Gawthorpe.

Kightly went close to scoring in the behind-closed-doors clash as young striker Jason Gilchrist notched a hat-trick for the Clarets.
