Just a week ago we kept a clean sheet and earned ourselves a point from a 0-0 draw at Aston Villa with two of our players considered to be our best on the night.

Goalkeeper Nick Pope has been in excellent form recently and was again in keeping his fifth clean sheet of the season. His performance won him the man of the match with 40% of the vote. Central defender James Tarkowski was immense alongside Ben Mee and won 27% to claim second place. The two full backs came next; Charlie was third with 10% while 6% of the vote won Matt Lowton fourth place.

The top two were reversed in the player ratings. Tarkowski won with 8.26 out of 10 while Pope scored 8.19. This time Mee was in third place with a rating of 7.57 with 7.44 out of 10 giving Taylor fourth place.

It brought both Pope and Tarkowski eight points towards the Up the Clarets Player of the Year with Taylor winning three points along with two points for Mee and one for Lowton.

Those points have taken Pope’s lead a the top of the table to ten points again ahead of Taylor. Tarkowski, in fourth place, is now closing in on Josh Brownhill who remains third.

You just have a few hours to VOTE for the man of the match against Wolves. Then, look out for the next vote after the Leeds game on Sunday.
