It was a testing afternoon for the goalkeeper, who was beaten at his near post by Keith Treacy’s cross-shot in the 74th minute to set Burnley on their way to a 2-0 win.
He said afterwards: "I’m grateful for the manager to put his trust into a young goalkeeper and hopefully I can repay him. I didn’t find it too bad and some of the experience I’ve had on loan at Walsall has helped me."
Yeovil manager Gary Johnson added: "Sam looked very solid but just got caught out as it was windy. He'll be OK."
