Second place Walsall’s Youth Alliance game at Morecambe last Saturday was one of four games called off and that gave Blackpool the opportunity, with two games last week against Accrington and Tranmere, to take full advantage.

They certainly did that too. On Tuesday of last week they beat Accrington 7-2 and followed that up with a 1-0 victory over Tranmere last Saturday to go seven points clear at the top of the league although they have now played two games more.

Other than that, with the limited number of games played, there was little change in the table although, with our game at Wrexham ruled out, we did drop a further place in the table to sixth.

That had to happen with Shrewsbury and Bury facing each other. A Bury win would have taken them above us with any other result seeing Shrewsbury move ahead of us. It was a draw and that has taken the Shrews a point clear of us although we now have five games in hand on them while Bury, still behind us on goal difference, have played two games more.

Rochdale went ahead of us a week earlier on goal difference and they’ve now moved three points clear with an emphatic win at Preston who have been the draw specialists this season. Preston had drawn 11 of their 20 games prior to Saturday but they still just remain above Fleetwood on goal difference fifth from bottom.

It’s Walsall who travel to Preston this week while leaders Blackpool are also on the road at Wigan. Burnley, meanwhile, will be hoping to get back to league action with a home fixture against Morecambe.

All last week’s results and this week’s fixtures are below followed by Burnley’s goalscorers this season and the current league table.
