Coral’s bet of the day
- Only a point separates both sides in promotion race
- Burnley have not lost this fixture since 2007
- Hosts have lost just once in last seven games on all fronts
Burnley 11/2 to beat Derby County and both teams score
In Coral’s latest bet of the day, beat the Monday blues by backing Burnley to overcome Derby County on home soil and both teams scoring at a tasty 11/2 (£20 max stake), as the Championship promotion race heats up.
The push for an automatic promotion to the Premier League reaches a crucial stage at the beginning of this week, as Sean Dyche’s Burnley battle Paul Clement’s Rams at Turf Moor in what is a decisive second tier encounter.
Burnley currently occupy fifth spot, just a single position below their next opponents, but will be confident of gaining a vital three points, having not tasted defeat in this fixture incredibly since January 2007.
Clarets can edge out defiant Derby
In what could be a close clash, suggested by their extremely tight Championship standings, Burnley are capable of edging proceedings, after rallying to impressive form of late.
Dyche’s men have lost on just one occasion in their previous seven outings across all competitions, including three successive domestic victories over title rivals Middlesbrough, MK Dons and Brentford.
Such rampant form should see the Clarets edge over the line in this Monday night Championship tussle, though they look likely of leaking a goal during play, having done so in two of those last three wins.
Burnley goal threats can inspire further success
Joey Barton was among the goals in the previous 3-1 triumph over Brentford, while the former Premier League midfielder was also on target in the 5-0 hammering of 10-men MK Dons.
The Clarets also saw forwards Sam Vokes, Andre Gray and George Boyd get their names on the scoresheets in a truly emphatic victory.
Derby possess enough quality to dispatch past their promotion rivals too, but the hosts should prevail from a tight tussle, so back them to win and both teams to score at a promising 11/2 (£20 max stake).
