Burnley’s 1-0 win against Leeds United three days ago has seen us move up three places in the Professional Development League, passing Crewe Alexandra and Huddersfield Town as well as he Leeds team who had been above us on goal difference.

1718 burnley mark howarth 00 500x500The win, our second of the season, has taken us to seven points but that’s some way behind the top teams in the north group of the league although for the Sheffield clubs, who had held the top two places, it wasn’t the best of weeks. The Blades kicked off the latest group of matches eight days ago with a 3-0 defeat at Birmingham while, two days later, Wednesday could only pick up a point at Barnsley.

That’s enabled Nottingham Forest, our next opponents, to move between them with a 3-1 win at Bolton and that leaves them just one point behind Wednesday and looking for a win against us to go top.

Hull continued their recent good run. Having made a difficult start to the season, their win at Crewe was their third in four games and has seen them move up to fifth place.

In the south group, meanwhile, QPR continued their good run with a win against Coventry and that enabled them to replace the Sky Blues at the top of the table. It was only Coventry’s second defeat of the season while QPR, along with Sheffield Wednesday in the north group, have both been beaten just once.

This week’s fixtures get underway with two games tomorrow, including ours at Forest and conclude when Birmingham visit Sheffield Wednesday next Tuesday.
