The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

IT COULD have been the day that Burn­ley’s re­turn to the Pre­mier League was con­firmed and the fans be­gan to be­lieve.

The Clarets dom­i­nated the early pro­ceed­ings and with news of Hud­der­s­field tak­ing the lead against Derby flood­ing into Turf Moor, the ex­cite­ment was clear to see.

Chance af­ter chance came Burn­ley’s way but res­o­lute de­fend­ing along with a mis­fir­ing at­tack en­sured it was not go­ing to be Burn­ley’s day. Danny Ings is still lack­ing the killer in­stinct he dis- played be­fore his in­jury but his move­ment was still breath­tak­ing at times. He is a man who is feared whether scor­ing or not and his form is sure to re­turn.

Derby’s come­back would have de­nied Burn­ley of pro­mo­tion even if they clawed out a vic­tory but one thing is for sure – if Sean Dy­che’s men can per­form like this at Black­pool on Fri­day then the re­turn to the big-time will be soon.
