Aberdeen scouting as ​Burnley beat Preston

Burnley and Preston played out an entertaining and high scoring friendly, with the Premier League side preparing for their first Europa League game.

With the side eager to impress ahead of their European qualifier against Aberdeen, Burnley won the game 3-2 in a very exciting game.

Dwight McNeil got the winning goal for the Clarets with only six minutes to go.

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes was at the game to scout the upcoming opposition.

He would have been impressed by Burnley's attack, with Aaron Lennon among the players who got on the scoresheet.

But he will have noticed defensive frailties against a Championship side that Aberdeen can expose.
