David Eyres said that last week’s Derby game is more important than THE derby game. Do you agree, and why?

LAST Saturday was more important in the grand scheme of things. This Sunday is more about pride, and we are due a win.

But we are on a good run at the moment and we want that to continue, regardless of the opposition.

Every game is massive now. It just makes this one extra special being a derby.

I think that the team is in the best shape they’ve ever been before a game against Rovers though, and I hope that’s something we can capitalise on.

They’re going into it off a bad result at Bolton, and I just wonder how they’re going to react.

PAUL SMITH

HAVE to agree with Eyresy on that one.

In terms of football, the Forest and Derby games were real six pointers.

Beating those two has put us in a really good position going into the last part of the season and should give us even more confidence to see out the season in the top two.

Of course, it would be nice to beat Blackburn, but if we got promoted, I doubt many Burnley fans would be bothered what the result was.

The Blackburn fixture has, for me, had all the joy taken out of it by the farcical travel arrangements that are imposed on us.

MATT RIGGS

TOTALLY agree with David Eyres comments.

The game last Saturday against Derby was possible our biggest match since the promotion season and winning it has given us a crucial gap between us and the rest.

Anything can happen in a local derby so I would take a draw considering our last two results as they were against our closest rivals for promotion.

However this is our best chance to break that hoodoo against the annoying neighbours and I think we will comfortably UTC!

It is crunch time and every single match holds importance. The Derby game was singular because of the possibility of dropping to third, but five points up with thirteen to play makes each match vital. GO CLARETS!!

Strangely it is a much bigger game for Rovers than Burnley. Why ? Because if Rovers lose it is the end of their season. They are also clinging on to this pathetic unbeaten for 30 odd year claim. Lose on Sunday and they are done. They instantly become irrelevant.As far as Burnley are concerned, of course we want to win and 3 points would strengthen our chances of automatic promotion. But defeat or a draw would not be the end of the world, yes it would make the remaining 12 games harder, but our destiny will still be in our own hands whatever happens on Sunday. UTC

Not losing is the key, because a side that wins their home games and draws their away games will win promotion.

I do expect a win though because we are simply too strong in every area of the pitch and Blackburn's makeshift and ramshackle defence will feel like someone has driven a bus through them at the end.

I am going for 3-1 Burnley.
