HERE is what a selection of Sunday national papers made of Burnley's 2-0 win over Derby County which leaves the Clarets five points clear of Steve McLaren's side in second place in the Championship table.

Burnley’s vision of the Promised Land came in to sharper focus as rivals Derby saw only injustice. Derby’s prospects of climbing above Burnley evaporated when Chris Martin was sent off for second bookable offence SUNDAY MIRROR Derby must hate the sight of promotion rivals Burnley after slumping to a fourth successive defeat to the Clarets. Sean Dyche’s rampant side are now five points clear of third-placed Derby SUNDAY PEOPLE Steve McClaren flew in to a red rage with ref Robert Madley...Madley denied the Rams a first half penalty when Chris Martin went over – and the striker was sent off for a second yellow.

Cheats never prosper.

Derby came with a game plan to bully Burnley and upset our rhythm from the off, they failed miserably and were outplayed and outfought in every area. Their early cheating tactics, particularly from that big lump Chris Martin backfired. They upped their game in the early part of the second half and a lesser team than Burnley might have let them back in, but once again that trademark resilience shone through and the boys put the game out of reach with the second goal. atmosphere was pretty special too with over 17,000 on.

Its not over by a long way but to stretch the gap to 5 points means we keep our destiny in our own hands with a winnable game to come next week. Its a big ask but another 3 points at Ewood would be the icing on the cake.

Bring on the no-dads.
