Burnley end Bolton hoodoo as Vokes-Ings partnership hits 40-goal mark

BURNLEY opened up a three-point gap in second place in the Championship with a 1-0 win over Bolton tonight, after Sam Vokes took his partnership with Danny Ings to 40 goals.

The striker's 16th goal of the season proved enough to clinch it for the Clarets, who had a pre-match boost by QPR missing the chance to go back above them with Monday night's defeat at Derby County.

Bolton had the better of the first half, responding well to losing a two-goal lead at home to Bournemouth to be held to their ninth home draw.

But there appeared to be only one winner once Vokes side-footed in Scott Arfield's cross from close range.

And that proved to be the case as the Clarets backed up Saturday's win over Millwall with three more points - their first win away to Bolton in almost 29 years.

Manager Sean Dyche said: “In the first half it was a more balanced affair, but in the second, apart from the last seven or eight minutes when the long stuff starts coming in as you chase the game, I felt we deserved it.

“That’s another mini-marker in history tonight because there was a lot of noise about us not having won at Bolton for 30 years.

“They are only markers and a bit of fuel for the players, but we have laid down a good mentality this year to bin all of those things.

“The past can’t make the future what it is. Only we can do that."

Got to admit this was a good result, local Derbys usually end in a draw, my perdition for you guys is still third.

Another good win for Burnley. There is no getting away from the fact that they are on a roll. Such a shame that they will miss out.
They will be getting very excited thinking the 35 year hoodoo is finally going to be overturned. But a word of warning. We may be below you in the league but as for below you in every other position then, dream on. The upcoming game will be a big boost to our ego and a depressive result for you, as per usual.

I hold my hand up....I was wrong, I thought Burnley would drop like a stone after such a fantastic start, and as a Rovers fan I was looking forward to it happening. But you have been excellent this season and you are up there on merit, the league table does not lie. So far you deserve promotion, well done!

Steady on baz58 their heads are getting too big as it is, any more praise and the thousand's of Burnley fans brains may well explode and shower their little grey cells all over. Then again there wouldn't be enough to cover a penalty spot.

It's nice to see a Rovers fan come on here and say something that doesn't involve jealousy or stupid comments, thank you. As you say, the table doesn't lie, certainly not 30 games in. Our toughest games left now really are at home so there is a lot to be optimistic about. Still nervous about the Ewood game though because Rovers do seem to be riding their luck against us in the past 3 games, and they do seem to be slowly getting their act together. That should be a cracker.

Panic is creeping in isn't it Mr Darener. You are trying not to but you're sitting there sweating and grinding your teeth thinking what if....

What if your 34 year comfort blanket is taken from you? At Ewood Park of all places!

What if the 3 points you surrender at home to the Clarets is that which takes them up to the Premier League automatically?

What if you slide further down the table?

Could you really cope with the shame given all your mouthing off this season?

16 points is now the gap. A win against Bournemouth and we move 19 points above you before your game away at Reading, and we'd only be 5 points off first place with Leicester yet to visit Turf Moor.... what if.

I wouldn't risk it if I were you old man, we don't want you without heating again after gambling last months gas money on the Clarets "slip sliding down the table Hahahahahaha" or however your phrased it when you went staggering into William Hill stinking of White Lightning and urine, laughing deliriously about Burnley having drawn 3 games.

We are 3 points clear of QPR, if we beat Bournemouth on Saturday we'll be 6 points clear of them before they play Reading on Sunday, we'll also be just 5 points behind Leicester with them yet to play at home.

As much as it scares you, automatic promotion is now within our grasp.... would you honestly bet against us?

What are we to make of a season that sees records tumbling, old "hoodoos" being destroyed, pundits and other managers at last giving the credit that is so deserved and even (much to their credit) some Rovers fans coming on here saying at last that we are where we deserve without resorting to the usual drivel poured out by some (probably the minority I think). Without wanting to resort to the "if only" I can't help thinking that if it hadn't been for the points dropped in draws at home that should have been wins we would be odds-on now for automatic promotion, battling with Leicester for top spot instead of second place skirmishes with QPR ( and,it seems, Derby County now).
However, we can hold our heads high safe in the knowledge that nothing that can be dreamed up on the jealous ones wish list can harm us in any way. Flash in the pan? I think not!
Ings/Trippier/Vokes to go in the transfer window? What a laugh!
Dyche to leave to the first big club who need a manager? Give me a break!
Yet to play anyone decent? Unbeaten against any of the top clubs!
Over by Christmas (then new year)? It's mid-Feb and we're second!
Rovers are catching us up/coming to get us? The gap is widening!
What more can be said? Oh, our gates are rubbish! Given the state of the local economy our gates are holding up well, without resorting to nearly giving them away like certain "big" clubs in the area.
All in all, a satisfying situation for all in Claret.
Onwards and upwards (literally I hope).

Great post!!! I've been pleading for months with other Clarets not to get involved in the mud slinging non-banter that passes for wit in some people's eyes. We can argue yes. We can have a good laugh at the others expense. We can have a right go at times, it's what football is all about. But the level to which some descend (on BOTH sides) is ridiculous and, as you rightly say, does nothing to deter the "others" from carrying on with the usual insults.
I will, as I have said many times in the past, never respond to any post by a Rover that is wholly insulting and written in pigeon English, even if it is in reply to one of my own posts.
Keep up the good work, Vintage, and spread the word. I love a good argument but, as they say, you can't argue with a sick mind.

Many thanks chez. It's quite amazing the level of "support" we are now getting from decent thinking Rovers fans. I was sick as a chip when you won the prem with the SAS but at least I like to think that I was big enough at the time to admit you had the best striking partnership in the country at the time, without a doubt.

I hope I'm not included in your description of mud slinging Burnley insulters.
I admit to a bit of "dingle" jesting, friendly banter. But I have never used swear words, references to family traits, or physical disabilities derogatory remarks.
I have banded personal insults on occasions from certain correspondents on these pages. But only when highly provoked.

The next meeting of the two teams may have a great bearing on the rest of the season. Should Burnley win that game then the psychological boost to both team and fans will have a great influence in future games. But! Should they lose after all the bad times the Rovers have endured for the last three seasons then who knows what affect that will have?
I can't wait to get that game over and done with. Then we may have a better idea in which direction the season is going to go. Will bragging rights be maintained? Or will the Rovers fans have to admit that after all this time Burnley have caught up with and possibly, heaven forbid, overtaken the Rovers. Albeit done at the hands of a bunch of no footballing knowledge Indian owners.

Good post and I agree with it (well, except for the last 6 words, am sure all true fans of the game will appreciate it and thank you.

Good luck to both teams and of course more to the Clarets, especially in March.

Unfortunately I am of the years where I can proudly boast I was at Maine Road the night Burnley won the 1st Division and you can obviously guess the number of matches I have seen on BOTH grounds between our teams when there was a good camaraderie and proper banter especially coming off the train and going from the Boulevard to the ground where we easily mixed with Rovers fans and no trouble to and from the game.

Fair enough but I think we actually overtook you last season. This season has proved it wasn't a fluke.

Earlier in the season I would have said a draw at Ewood would be a good point for us but given recent performances and the belief Sean Dyche has instilled I think we are well within our capabilities to expect one more record to fall. Beating Blackburn after all these years would be a massive boost but the 3 points will be the important part given that our remaining difficult looking games are now all at home.

We are 3 points clear of QPR, if we beat Bournemouth on Saturday we'll be 6 points clear of them before they play Reading on Sunday, we'll also be just 5 points behind Leicester with them yet to play at home.

As much as it scares you, automatic promotion is now within our grasp.... would you honestly bet against us?

What on earth has happened today? It is the Burnley/ Rovers mutual admiration society! I can't get my head around this. We will be patting each other on the back soon.
Let's keep it up. Footballing banter only, well done to all concerned.
Would like to go to the derby match, it will be interesting to see what happens, both on and off the pitch. But I must cut off my nose to spite my face, not being a hypocrite. My return to being a supporter not just a follower of the Rovers is still dependant on the Venky's going or at least apologising for their actions. But I will enjoy the match on tv. I hope!

No problem with you at all Darener. As you rightly say, I don't have a problem with you having a dig, I'd be shocked if you didn't, but you keep it clean and sometimes, as above, give credit where it's due. I occasionally used to go on the Rovers forum and make the odd comment (once very much in support of your plight vis-a-vis Venkys, which I still maintain) but I have since stopped because of the vehemence of some of your supporters and the stupidity of some of ours.

I'm sensing one or two reach-around's being prematurely handed out here.

Both sides wish nothing more than defeat on the other on any given Saturday and rightly so. It's a rivalry and the banter is all part of it, long may it continue.

God knows I'll be giving it out should we win on the 9th, but equally so I'll take the same should we not do the business. It's possibly the most I've looked forward to this fixture in many, many years.

The fact that we are chasing that automatic spot I believe gives us the edge and we will want it that much more than Blackburn who may be out of the play-off picture completely by that time.

But then again Burnley may be out of the auto promotion position. Only time will tell. Don't worry about Rovers not being motivated. Dunny will make sure they are, even if he is not playing.

Because you were in a higher league cos we were sh.it for years (and for ever) and you were amazing. Now we must also remember you have better fans, a nicer town, a finer attitude, more silverware, a better stadium, fewer fingers, a shorter tail, you don't roger your sisters, yours mums are not your dads, your crowds are bigger, your catchment area is smaller (so its double amazing), you are deep and we are shallow. Oh yes, sorry I forget, the grass is greener on your pitch too. But apart from that we got you lot sorted. Is that about right? I do apologise if I've forgotten something. If I have, that'll be because I'm a Claret thus automatically a tw.at. Cheers

Nice to read sense has someone been spiking the water in the hills around Ewood?
Much better reading than the usual idiotic drivel.

Thanks for the respect and I hope 'eventually' the situation with your club improves. I have to admit to laughing at the situation down the road, its truly like a Bolliwood film... However in the past Burnley has been in much worse situations and our home grown board have built this over years.

I have seen the steady improvement in Burnley and for that Im really happy. Up the Clarets, we can do it automatically !!!
