Next up for the Clarets is Leicester City at the Walkers Stadium. The two clubs started the season with mirrored opposite results, with the Clarets winning 2-0 over QPR, with the Foxes losing by the same scoreline in the televised game away at Luton.
The Clarets did the double over Leicester last season, with Ade Akinbiyi strikes in each encounter giving the Clarets seperate 1-0 wins.
Leicester have a new man in charge now, and go into this season with renewed optimism, after their late season form last campaign eased any niggling relegation worries, which seemed a real possibility before Easter.
We spoke with our Vital Leicester friends on the game, their key men, their hopes for the season, and how they think it will go down on Tuesday night...
I think most fans would be happy with a top 10 finish this season and if we managed to sneak into the playoff zone it would be bonus. At one point last season, we were in the relegation zone and fans couldn`t see
where the next win was going to come from. Then Rob Kelly came in and it all changed round.
Most Important Player:
Probably have to go with Matty Fryatt. We signed him in the January transfer window last season and he gave our attack the cutting edge. He just seems to have the gift of being in the right place at the right time.
James Wesolowski is a great young player, the only problem is that he cant stop breaking his leg! At the beginning of last season he broke it in a friendly against Celtic. He managed to get fit again and came
back half away through the season. After half a dozen games, he broke the same leg in a different place.
Hopefully, if he can stay fit he will work his way back into the team. He is a defensive midfielder, and with him playing it allows players such as Gareth Williams and Stephen Hughes to go and attack.
Although I would like to say Leicester will win, I think Burnley will be more then happy with the draw and I think it will be 1-1.
