STAR PREVIEW Burnley v Derby County

first_img[dropcap]I[/dropcap]t looks a Turf Moor cracker tonight….. on paper at least, with fifth placed Burnley hosting Derby who are in fourth.Both sides are in the race to avoid the end of season play-off roulette and bidding to grab an automatic spot worth it’s weight in gold. Whilst we’re on the subject of the price of precious commodities – did you know that the barrel now costs more than the oil it contains !!! Further falls today in the Brent crude markets with a barrel now just $30.73. (EDITOR: PLEASE get back on topic).Burnley have been a powerhouse at home this season, losing just twice and also have a trip to the Emirates on Saturday to face Arsenal in the FA Cup. As lucrative as that might be financially, manager Sean Dyche may well see it as a hindrance as there is NOTHING more valuable in football than a place in the Premier League and Burnley are very much in contention.Dyche certainly believes in sticking with a winning formula and is set to name the same starting XI for the fifth consecutive game.Derby are also having a good season but might just be coming off the boil with no wins from their last four league games and a struggle to get past Hartlepool in the FA Cup.Burnley v Derby CountyChampionship19:45 Sky Sports 1 / Sky Sports 1 HD / Sky Sports 5 / Sky Sports 5 HDHEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Maximum 10 matches)Sep 2015 CHAMPIONSHIP Derby 0-0 BurnleyMar 2014 CHAMPIONSHIP Burnley 2-0 DerbyAug 2013 CHAMPIONSHIP Derby 0-3 BurnleyDec 2012 CHAMPIONSHIP Burnley 2-0 DerbySep 2012 CHAMPIONSHIP Derby 1-2 BurnleyJan 2012 CHAMPIONSHIP Burnley 0-0 DerbyAug 2011 CHAMPIONSHIP Derby 1-2 BurnleyApr 2011 CHAMPIONSHIP Derby 2-4 BurnleyNov 2010 CHAMPIONSHIP Burnley 2-1 DerbyApr 2009 CHAMPIONSHIP Derby 1-1 BurnleyA night to keep things simple and a win bet on Burnley at around 7/5 with Star Sports.
