A couple of weeks ago the Premier League 2 league leaders were Chelsea and Norwich City but as we go into the next set of fixtures today we’ve now got Derby County and Middlesbrough leading the way.

Concentrating on our division, Middlesbrough are now ahead of Leeds on goal difference, and with a game in hand, while Norwich, who seem to have been top all season, have dropped to third having lost their two most recent games against the new top two. Middlesbrough suffered a surprise defeat against  West Brom last time out, an opportunity missed to pull clear at the top.

Things can change quickly. Fulham opened their season with successive wins but haven’t picked up a point since. They are our opponents this week and currently the only team within striking distance of us as we look to get off the bottom of the league.

Since our last review, we did pick up a deserved point from a 2-2 draw against Aston Villa. New signing Owen Dodgson got our first equaliser with Joel Mumbongo (pictured) netting in stoppage time to earn us the point.

No reference to that game should pass without mention of the Aston Villa goalkeeper. Back on New Year’s Day we watched our former goalkeeper Tom Heaton stretchered off after Chris Wood had scored for us against Villa. It was a serious cruciate ligament injury for Tom who made his first appearance on the road back to fitness in this game. I can’t imagine there is a Burnley fan anywhere who wouldn’t be delighted to see him back in action.

One the same day as we drew against Villa, Crystal Palace beat Reading 6-0. That was the biggest of the recent wins in Division 2 but there have been plenty of goals in the higher division. Manchester United won 5-2 at Brighton, City lost by the same score at Southampton. Liverpool hit four at West Ham but two weeks ago today, Arsenal hit Blackburn for six. It was 6-0 in the end with Blackburn picking up nothing other than a collection of yellow cards.

The next set of fixtures kick off today in both divisions with Arsenal hosting Everton in Division 1 and leaders Middlesbrough travelling to Wolves in Division 2.
