2nd Jan 2019 | Premier League
Drink In The New Year Clarets
Tom Heaton returned to the Burnley side on 30th December and immediately claimed a clean sheet in a priceless victory.
There’s a crucial six-pointer at the foot of the Premier League on Wednesday night but just because Hudderfield’s need is the greater, it doesn’t mean they will take the spoils. Burnley are certainly underrated at best odds of 29/10 with BetVictor.
Those odds do nothing to reflect the fact that Town have lost seven consecutive league matches - that ties their club record. It’s sad, because there is much to admire in Wagner’s team and their spirit is remarkable, but the lack of quality, and now injuries, have taken their toll. 12 goals scored from 20 top flight games this season is almost a guarantee of relegation.
Burnley clearly haven’t been much better but they have more Premier League know-how and the 2-0 victory over West Ham can be a stepping stone with Dyche demanding consistency.
Odds correct at time of publishing: 09:51 2nd Jan, 2019 but subject to change
