Burnley

Last updated: Sat 04 January 2020 07:04
In Brief

Premier League form poor – 3 consecutive defeats since Christmas. Strong squad should be selected. Only Gibson missing.

Looking Back

Burnley made it 3 defeats in a row since Christmas when beaten 1:2 at home by Aston Villa. Clarets once again looked poor in wide areas, with none of 4 full-backs in particularly good form at the minute.

With 9 defeats in last 13 rounds in Premier League (won other 4 games) Burnley not very high on confidence. Yet to win football match this season when unable to keep clean sheet.

Looking Ahead

Coach Dyche traditionalist and he rates dying FA Cup competition highly. This likely would see him select decent squad. Still rotation inevitable. Options rich with no injury issues apart from rarely used anyway Gibson.

Snubbed in recent weeks Lowton and Pieters could be given another chance to impress, while fit-again Gudmundsson expected to start.

Points of Interest

FA Cup record at home in last 10 years has been very solid – (W7 D1 L1).

Peterborough United

Last updated: Sat 04 January 2020 09:29
In Brief

Poor run continued with a 2:1 defeat at Lincoln. Siriki Dembele suspended. Frankie Kent returns. Reece Brown signs.

Looking Back

Peterborough's losing run continued at Lincoln, as a last-minute goal condemned them to a 2:1 defeat.

The Posh have been in poor form of late, having collected only a point from their last four league matches.

Looking Ahead

Sirki Dembele was sent off against the Imps and will miss out with the resulting ban.

Fankie Kent returns after missing the previous match with a suspension.

Reece Brown has signed on loan from Huddersfield and is set to go straight into the squad.

Points of Interest

Peterborough visited Burnley twice in the current decade, both times in league matches and both times in 2012. They recorded a 1:1 draw and a 5:2 defeat.
