Mondya night football from the Championship in England this week as Burnley will host Derby at Turf Moor. Burnley come into this game with four wins and a draw in their last five, one of the form teams in the Championship and with a real chance to close the gap on the teams above them in the league. Of course they face a Derby team who are themselves in fourth and looking to close on Brighton, Middlesbrough and Hull. Derby come into this game struggling for form, the Rams have won only one of their last five games in all competitions and that was an FA Cup tie at struggling Hartlepool. Derby have lots of Premiership level quality in their side with Ince, Hendrick, Weimann and Martin. This is a tough game for Derby against an inform Burnley but I think Derby will come to Turfmoor looking for a draw.
Burnley have come into great form at the right time. With the fixtures now coming thick and fast Burnley will look to continue their strong form here with a win which would take them up to third in the league and just five points off top spot. This is a team that was relegated last season from the Premier League but they didnt go crazy on transfers and have kept themselves competitive. Also in addition to not spending too much money they stayed with their manager Sean Dyche who got them there and I think Dyche can lead them to the promised land again. This is a quality side with battle hardened players. Andre Gray is having a terrific season after coming in from Brentford, Vokes and Boyd still contribute to the goals tally and the work ethic is second to none. The experience of Matty Taylor is also key.
I'm going to take Burnley here, 8/5 about the form team at home seems a steal to me. I dont expect it to be an easy game but I do expect Burnley to just about get the win. This should be a really entertaining game to watch though!
