What the papers say

WE take a look at what the national newspapers had to say after Burnley climbed back to the top of the Championship table with a 1-0 win over Barnsley while Blackburn Rovers picked up a valiant point at previous leaders Queens Park Rangers. Rangers missed the chance to go top after a poor first half and a second 45 minutes when they did everything but score. Rangers served up an insipid first half offering and Rovers were not much better. Sean Dyche, the Burnley manager, dismissed talk of a crisis after Michael Kightly’s goal sent them back to the top of the Championship. THE SUNDAY TIMES Not even a second half revival could take Queens Park Rangers past opoor travellers Blackburn and up to the top of the Championship...Rangers failed for the sixth time to beat their Lancastrian rivals. Burnley returned to the Championship with an ugly win. And the ability to get three points when not at your best is something that would please Clarets boss Sean Dyche. THE SUNDAY MIRROR Debut hero Simon Eastwood was hailed as Blackburn’s saving face on a frustrating afternoon for Harry Redknapp’s QPR. The 24-year-old was drafted in for his first league outing in place of the dropped Jake Kean. Sean Dyche was left feeling as high as a Kight after Burnley rose back to the top of the table. But it perhaps sums up the division that the Clarets managed it with their first win in six matches. THE SUN ON SUNDAY
