Burnley vs. Hull City

Turf Moor

Hull of a Game!

The Clarets face Hull City at Turf Moor on Tuesday night and will be looking to consolidate with a win after their encouraging performance against the Blades away last Saturday. Hull will be smarting after their 2-0 defeat at lowly QPR on Saturday and they now find themselves in 15th place on 16 points.

The Clarets are now 13th on 18 points but crucially are still well within site of the play offs, with the sixth placed club,Wolves on 22 points having played one more game than the lads.

The injury worries seem to be mounting up in the back four but at least in Alexander and Unsworth we have very able and experienced players with Unsworth in particular showing just how professional he can be after an excellent performance last Saturday fully deserving the man of the match award.

With Caldwell sidelined for now five weeks and Duff for a season, it will be a worry that Jordan twisted his ankle and had to be substituted in the second half at Bramall Lane. However, Jordan has been a little underpar recently and Harley may now have the opportunity to shine anyway and could retain his place after coming on from the bench.

As far as we aware, there are no other injury concerns apart from Berisha of course,who is out for a season along with Duff having both suffered cruciate ligament damage.

We can expect therefore a similar sixteen to those named in Blades game depending on whether Jordan is fit or not:

Burnley: Kiraly, Alexander, Carlisle, Unsworth, Harley or Jordan, Elliott, McCann, Spicer, Lafferty, Gray, Blake.

Subs: Harley or Jordan, J O'Connor, Akinbiyi, Jensen, Mahon

Steve Says:

Steve had this to say about the injury to Jordan:

"He damaged his ankle and then went over on it again.

"Anyone who's had an ankle problem, you go over on it, you come back and then you go over it again," said Cotterill.

"Stephen Jordan's ankle probably won't get better until the start of next season when he's had a summer rest on it.

"We just hope he doesn't go over on it too much."

Burnley Team News:

Jordan looks to have recovered but will Harley take his place? Unsworth will definitely be in the team covering for the injured skipper,Caldwell

Player to watch: Andy Gray

Most impressive against Sheffield United without scoring. Time to get a goal or two.

Hull City Team News:

Hull midfielder Bryan Hughes faces a late fitness test following a groin injury in training last week.

Striker Caleb Folan has a foot problem and looks unlikely to feature.

Nicky Featherstone and Stephen McPhee though might get chamce to impress

Player to watch: Jay-Jay Okocha

Still a danger and our defence better be alert

Last Time We Met!

A 2-0 victory just over a year ago now at Turf Moor with Duff and Gifton Noel-Williams getting the goals

Match Prediction:

2-0 Clarets if we cant tonk them

Next Match:

Leicester City away at the Walkers on Saturday 10th November @ 3pm

I cannot believe Jay Jay Okocha is playing at Hull City!!!!

I can see this been the end of Cotterill's reign as your manager. Dissapointing result.
will it ever happen
I felt the same thing after that Hull defeat, I just couldnt see him surviving any longer. The messageboards were turning against him it seemed in greater numbers and I feared the SC out chants would begin to effect team performance. Probably the best decision but we shall see. Im glad its over to be honest,the bickering between the pro-anti SC lobbies was becoming destructive
