While Crystal Palace stretch their lead at the top of the south group to seven points, it’s all change in the north group with Nottingham Forest the latest team to claim top spot following their 3-2 win at Crewe Alexandra.

1718 burnley ethan kershaw 00 500x500That gap of seven points between Palace and second place Millwall is greater than the gap between Forest and bottom of the league Barnsley with only five points separating the entire league in the north.

Such is this league that Forest kicked off in sixth place and saw their win lift them to the top. The lead on goal difference from Huddersfield, who were held against Leeds, with the pair holding a one point advantage over Leeds, Bolton and Burnley.

You might have read elsewhere that our win against Sheffield United kept us in fifth place. We are fifth, but that is a climb of three places having kicked off the day in eighth place. Hull, Sheffield United and Crewe are now the three teams who have dropped below us.

We’ve had a couple of heavy defeats recently and that’s sent out goal difference negative. Right now, we have the worst goal difference in the league with minus four. Barnsley are the only other team who have a negative goal difference and they are bottom of the league.

Last week saw a lot of goals, but no so this week with only twelve goals in the five games. Three of those games were draws with only us and Forest playing each other.

As seems to happen regularly, when a team goes to the top it’s our turn to play them and a trip to Forest is what we have to look forward to this coming Saturday.

The player shown is Ethan Kershaw who had a good game in Burnley’s midfield in the win against Sheffield United.
