Match preview

Table-topping Burnley will set out to keep alive a stellar recent stretch of form this weekend, when they welcome a Reading outfit in the thick of the promotion playoff battle to Turf Moor for a Championship clash.

Burnley, of course, have acted as the standout performers across the season to date in England’s 2nd tier.

With just a solitary defeat from 17 to their name, Vincent Kompany’s troops have taken full advantage of the woes of both Sheffield United and Norwich City, to position themselves as early favourites for a swift return to the top-flight.

Recent weeks have proven particularly impressive, with the Clarets having racked up 13 points from an available 15 since October 8th.

Their latest outing, against Norwich in midweek, saw a solitary goal from Jay Rodriguez make the difference, en route to an altogether deserved 1-0 win.

Rodriguez, for his part, now sits joint-top of the Championship goalscoring charts, with eight goals to his name from 15 appearances.

Safe to say, then, that the upcoming visitors to Lancashire will have their work cut out for them on Saturday afternoon.

Reading, prior to last weekend, had seen their form fall off the side of a cliff of late, slipping to a trio of successive defeats to slide towards the depths of mid-table in England’s 2nd tier.

A meeting with Bristol City at the Madejski last time out, though, some confidence restored across the Royals’ ranks.

This came as goals from Mamadou Loum and substitute Andy Carroll gave rise to a 2-0 triumph, guiding Paul Ince and co. back within a solitary point of the playoff places.

A 2nd positive result on the spin, however, looks altogether unlikely for Reading this weekend.

In possession of the leakiest defence in the top half of the table, a trip to the Championship’s top scorers could well spell disaster for Saturday’s visitors.

We at 101, in turn, are backing Burnley to ultimately emerge triumphant come the final whistle at Turf Moor.
