Burnley v DERBY @ Turf Moor 23.12.06

Don't think I'm going too go too this one, thus ending the 5 away games in a row seqeunce, well it had too end sometime. Hopefully our great away form doesn't end with it, Burnley is always a tough place to go, but we'll be looking for the 3 points no doubt about it.

Marc Edworthy is suspended after picking up his 5th yellow card against Palace, Steve Howard will be back in the squad.

Jimbo's team too Play Burnley

Bywater

Jackson - Moore - Leacock - Boertien

- - - - Oakley - Seth - Jones

Barnes - - - - - - - - - - - - - Stead
- - - - - - Howard

Don't think Burnley away is Lupoli's type of game, they'd just look too kick the sh!t out of him, Stead and Howard can both take it and give it out, so there the better option, Stead will probably take a wide rle as usual. Jackson in for suspended Edworthy, everything else stays the same.

I think we can go there and win most definatly, but I realli don't know how this one will pan out, because they are one of those teams that can strike hot and cold ermmm, in terms of the result, I really think we can go n there beat them espeically with Howard being back in the side will add us with a big presence again upfront!!!

Derby: Skipper Matt Oakley should be fit to face the Clarets after limping off during the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace with an ankle injury.

Right-back Marc Edworthy definitely misses out through a one-game suspension, but the Rams do have Steve Howard available again after he was banned for the Palace game.

Otherwise, Billy Davies has everyone to choose from and he was also boosted last week by the earlier-than-expected return to action of Bob Malcolm, who had been out since September.

Burnley: The Clarets have Alan Mahon and Jon Harley available again after they missed last Saturday's 2-2 draw with Sunderland due to one-game bans.

Striker Andy Gray definitely misses out as he has a broken metatarsal and is likely to be out until February.

His place has been taken by Irish teenager Kyle Lafferty, who has scored three goals in his last three games.

THE REFEREE


Mike Pike makes the journey down from Cumbria to take charge at Turf Moor. His record this season has seen him issue 32 yellow cards in 16 games, and he is yet to dismiss anyone.

Pike was last in charge of the Rams on September 24 2005 when they lost 2-1 at Sheffield United.

Oh dear

Too foggy is more of a worry, although I saw clips of Stoke play I think earlier this season where you couldn't see a thing, I remember a Stoke fan saying a goal went in at the other end, but the only reason they knew was from the cheering coming from that end, as you couldn't see the other end of the pitch. Hopefully the refs not a donkey like the one who called off the Liverpool - Arsenal game.

Yeah hopefully the fog isn't a problem, in getting it called off and how the game is played.

Burnley's always a toug place to go, especially this season there doing well, but with our form you've got too fancy a win, another 1-0 Steve Howard back in the side with a goal.

Oh yeah, although I really don't want it to be called off, we don't want too play in conditions where you can hardly see and we end up losing. It's nice and clear in Derby at the moment, and the fog is supposed to be worse on the East side of the country, so hopefully it will be alright.

Well the way the weather girl was going on this morning, I was expecting not too see the end of the drive from my bedroom window when I opened the curtains, but there's no fog at all, maybe it's going to come late on again, it can keep doing that.

Well the fog didn't really appear in Derby last night, it started to creep in a bit as the night went on, but I would say it was more misty than foggy. I would think it would be fine at kick off time, towards the end it might start too creep in.

Steve Cotterill is expecting Derby County to provide a tough challenge to his Clarets in Saturday's Coca-Cola Championship encounter.

The Rams travel to Turf Moor on the back of a run of eight wins from their last nine games that has taken them to second in the table.

And Burnley boss Cotterill is prepared for them to provide a stiff test.

He told www.burnleyfootballclub.com: "Derby didn't start the season too well, but I know Billy and I know he will want to get them sorted and organised.

"We know the chances are they will play 4-3-3 so we have got to make sure we deal with both of their wide men.

"They have a big centre-forward that will be running about, and they have three in the middle of the park.

"We have just got to make sure that we deal with them, but it should be a good game and it's one we are looking forward to.


Bloody hell that was a long time ago, Cotterill always comes across as a bit of an arsehole too me.

Derby County go in search of a third consecutive clean sheet in the League today - a feat they have not achieved in almost six years.

Billy Davies' team shut out Leeds United and Crystal Palace in the last two games and face Burnley in the Championship at Turf Moor this afternoon.

The last time the Rams recorded clean sheets in three consecutive League matches was in their Premiership days of February 2001, when they beat Sunderland 1-0, held Leeds to a goalless draw and defeated Aston Villa 1-0.

They chalked up three clean sheets in a row at the start of the 2001-02 campaign but one of those was against Hull City in the League Cup.

Derby have recorded seven shut-outs this season and Burnley have eight. Stoke have the most in the division with 11, followed by Birmingham City on 10.

Davies knows all about clean sheets.

His Preston team had the best record in the Championship last season with 24 - two more than runaway champions Reading


I would be great too do it, and will really show how amazing our defence is doing, especially as if you look at the personel on paper, it's not really impressive, not so long ago I wanted a whole new back 4, but with Leacock too stay, but as a unit together they've been brilliant for the last month or 2.

It's about time I did a prediction, I think we can win the game, but in the PL league I've gone for a 1-1 draw which wouldn't be a terrible result. Steve Howard too score.

Half time: 0-0

Not a great game, but we're staying solid, pasing it about abit, but Burnley are tough to break down, and they've made a few chances themself, get Lupoli on too cause them some problems.
