Dave Burnley: Charlton will be a test for Burnley

This Is Lancashire: Sean Dyche Sean Dyche

MARCHING on together!”, and “Keep right on to the end of the road” are football anthems synonymous with our last two opponents in Leeds United and Birmingham City respectively.

And it is those combined mantras that are currently applicable to Burnley.

With the ankle injury to leading scorer Danny Ings sustained after some heavy duty tackling at St Andrew’s on Wednesday keeping him sidelined, the unity that has been so evident among the whole squad this season needs to be maintained for the next seven weeks.

If we take that on board I think we can begin to dream it, believe it and ultimately achieve it.

In yet another week of awards for the Clarets huge praise must go to Danny Ings on being crowned Championship player of the year, duly confirming him and Sam Vokes as the division’s best combination after the latter won the Championship player of the month award for Feburary.

At Birmingham, having taken the lead three times I suppose the manner of their equaliser in added on time could be described as two points lost, but any point away has to be welcomed against what was a very determined blue side on the night.

We then turned the tables on Leeds United 2-1, after the Yorkshire team took the lead, and went on to secure another landmark of doing the double on them for the first time since the 1926/27 season.

So, having played three consecutive fixtures against clubs with controversial overseas owners in the Venky’s of Blackburn Rovers, Carson Yeung of Birmingham City and the prospective new incumbent at Leeds United Massimo Cellino, our next trip to Charlton continues the theme.

Belgian businessman Roland Duchatelet is the man in the chair, who according to press reports relinquished former manager Chris Powell of his job for not playing any of the Standard Liege footballers he had brought over in the FA Cup quarter final defeat at Sheffield United.

Roland just also happens to be the owner of yep, you’ve guessed it – Standard Liege. What a crazy world!

None of those four clubs are going up, and indeed two of them could quite easily could go down, including the Addicks.

That is why we can expect a tough test down at The Valley.

Getting beaten in the final by Derby?? I thought that pleasure was reserved for the chicken farmers!!!! Silly me. They're not going to get anywhere near the play-off's!!
Danny Ings injury an inconvenience but not a fatal blow. we'll still be up there come May.

Let's face it, even before the Brum match, Ingsy had gone off the boil a bit (in terms of chances taken, not work rate!). But and it's a huge BUT, unlike our cousins from down the road, Burnley aren't a one man band.

QPR have officially thrown the towel in, and even Wigan have dropped two points at home to Yeovil. It's there for the taking.

I think you're right. 10 games left and only 4 of them top 10 teams and 3 of those 4 are at home. Completely Burnley's to lose now.
