As the penultimate fixture of the month, what to make of Saturday’s opponents Sheffield Wednesday?
The Owls have had a tough season but their confidence will be sky high following their 6-0 demolition of Leeds United last weekend.
My view? Sean Dyche shouldn’t let it bother him. And I’m pretty sure that will be his view. Clarets will concentrate on their own game and undoubtedly be aiming to take three points. Whatever happened to the Leeds defence can remain something for Brian McDermott to worry about.
Burnley overcame a potential banana skin at Yeovil last Saturday, though the late consolation for the Somerset side will have reminded Burnley there are always areas they can tighten up.
Wednesday dominated the play against Leeds but at Turf Moor Dyche’s men are unlikely to let that happen. If anything, Wednesday’s potency last weekend will have served to tighten up the Burnley ship as much as possible, many years of Championship football amply showing the Burnley faithful that any team is capable of beating another at this level.
A consistent Clarets should have the upper hand.
