Burnley take on Newcastle United at Turf Moor on tuesday night with Burnley looking to move out of the relegation zone. Burnley have hit some form recently with two wins from their last three and a good draw with Villa at the weekend. Manager Dyche will be well aware that his side's mini revival will mean nothing if they can not continue to pick up points. Home games like this one represents real opportunity for teams like Burnley to get three points and a win here could move them as high as fourteenth in the league table, Danny Ings is the key man for Burnley having scored the four goals that has led to two wins and a draw in the last three games.
Newcaslte Manager Alan Pardew will be lamenting his sides injury woes as the first team are currently missing eight players who are injured or unavailable. Ayoze Perez, Rivierie and Ameobie have all contributed in the absence of Papa Cisse with Perez in particular shining over the last seven games, in which Newcastle have won six of the seven. It wasnt long ago that Newcastle fans were calling for Pardews departure but obviously that has stopped given the run of six wins in a row. Newcastle are a solid side built on a strong defence. Injuries to Colocini and Krul have somewhat weakened the side of late but it wouldnt be a surprise to see Newcastle pull out a victory here.
Tough game here, Burnely have played well at home and with Newcastle's injury list it is hard to take the away team here. I think this one finishes a draw and will be taking that at a reasonable price given that three of Burnley's seven home games have finished a draw.
