Match preview

Championship table-toppers Burnley are set to make the trip to the Bet365 Stadium on Friday, December 30th, hopeful of reestablishing their advantage over Sheffield United at the expense of Stoke City.

The Clarets, of course, have long positioned themselves as favourites for a swift return to the top-flight of English football.

This comes with Vincent Kompany’s men having fallen to defeat in just two of their 24 fixtures across the season to date.

Not only that, but eight of their last nine fixtures have culminated in victory, the latest of which arrived earlier this week.

Burnley, as a result, will head into Friday’s action in the knowledge that another eventual triumph would see them reopen a three-point lead atop the Championship standings.

Hopeful of throwing a spanner in such plans, though, will be a Stoke City side themselves looking much improved of late.

Though the Potters have of course not managed to light up the division to the extent of their upcoming opponents, they have steadied the ship, courtesy of just a solitary defeat in five.

Last time out, Alex Neil’s men followed up a crucial three-point haul at the expense of Bristol City with another important share of the spoils at relegation rivals Rotherham.

After twice falling behind at the New York Stadium, a late Lee Peltier own goal ensured that Stoke would return to Staffordshire with the club’s encouraging recent stretch of results remaining intact.

Such efforts, in turn, have culminated in the Potters putting a five-point buffer between themselves and the bottom three.

We at 101, though, are nevertheless backing Burnley to ultimately emerge from the Bet365 Stadium on Friday with all three points, with Kompany’s troops simply boasting too much quality for their upcoming hosts.
