Clarets March On

Clarets March On

Burnley finally made their home performances count, beating Hull City 2-0 on Saturday at Turf Moor.

The Clarets continued their strong start to the season, with goals from Michael Duff, his first in 14 months, and the rejuvenated Gifton Noel-Williams.

In a week where the unwanted managerial attention towards Steve Cotterill slowed, with the WBA and Norwich posts being filled, the attention may now turn to on the pitch, where the Clarets have become an increasingly hard to beat outfit.

Hull found it increasingly difficult to handle the Clarets' attacks, and their defence was first broken on 13 minutes, when Duff, rose highest to head an Elliott corner past Boaz Myhill.

The Northern Ireland defender's season continues to go from strength to strength, and now he has finally found the net and Steve Cotterill was surprised by his goal.

'He gets a fair amount of stick for not scoring- and rightly so.

'For such a good header of the ball, he hasn't got the quantity of goals he should have.'

Duff has starred in the heart of defence this season, with the majority of his time at Turf Moor being spent at right full back.

Wade Elliott also played a big part in the Clarets second, receiving the ball from Micah Hyde, who whipped in a great cross, for Gifton to head home for 2-0.

The scoreline was no more than the Clarets deserved, with Hull's only chances coming from a fluffed touch from Michael Bridges when he was through on goal, and a stone wall penalty denied when Brian Jensen clattered into striker Jon Parkin, as they contested a high ball.

It is Southend for the Clarets next at Turf Moor, and they may well be favourites for this one too.

In a word yes, providing we are not scuppered with excessive injuries or suspensions! We have one of the smallest squads in the League @ 20 players! If we are in top six by Xmas, the Club have some big decisions to make regarding the transfer window! They better not scupper our chances again for the third season running!
