FULL-TIME: Burnley 3, Forest 1

First published in News

BURNLEY made a statement of intent in the race for promotion with a 3-1 over ambitious Nottingham Forest, stretching their unbeaten home run to 20 games.

All the Clarets goals came in a one-sided first half, with Forest needing a second half penalty to try to get back in the game.

Burnley could have gone into the lead with a greater advantage than the one provided by Scott Arfield and two-goal Sam Vokes.

Sean Dyche's side burst out of the traps and scored after only the 12th minute when Arfield nutmegged former Clarets defender Danny Fox on the edge of the box and fired past Karl Darlow.

Vokes doubled their advantage in the 25th minute when he met Kieran Trippier's terrific cross with a thumping header for his 17th of the season.

His 18th followed 10 minutes before the break, although it needed the help of a deflection off Jamaal Lascelles to take it over Darlow.

There had been other chances for Burnley in a seriously one-sided half.

Michael Duff had the ball in the net from David Jones' free kick, but the flag was raised for offside.

Forest, who had top scorer Andy Reid added to their mounting injury list with a calf strain before the game, were vastly improved in the second half.

After a quiet first half Tom Heaton had to be at his best to top Lascelles' effort from a corner onto the bar, while Trippier headed off the line from the same player soon after.

A penalty for Duff's trip on substitute Simon Cox was initially saved by Heaton, but taker Djamel Abdoun headed in the rebound.

Burnley had to withstand spells of pressure.

But top scorer Danny Ings might have restored the three-goal cushion and increase his 42-goal partnership with Vokes.

However, Ings' record of not going more than two games without scoring all season came to an end.

A 1-0 win for third placed Derby County, who the Clarets host next weekend, keeps the gap to second place at two points.

Not poor grammar, just poor typing and proof reading. As previously stated I am now a follower of the Rovers, not a supporter. But never really been an away supporter. Too busy looking after my disabled daughter.
Thanks for preventing Forest getting any points today. Looking forward to the 9th.

Is every team that goes to the turf going to have an off day, even Forest reserves had a bad day. Is someone slipping something in the water. I suggest taking bottled in future to anyone going. This lucky streak can't continue. No one can be that lucky. It might be good though if Rovers spanked them into the playoffs.

Think both Burnley and Rovers did themselves and each other a favour today. I just think Derby are on a roll so next weeks clash promises to be a real 6 pointer just watch Bamford he can power a ball with no backlift

End of season could be interesting! Both clubs need to keep going one game at a time

14000 - 4000 = 10000, which is less than last home game, just thought i'd help you out with the basics.

What an immense performance today against a flying Nottingham Forest side. Leicester know we aren't giving up on top spot without a fight and those below might just be thinking this is now a two horse race given Burnley's fantastic recent form. First half was superb, and as several no-dads have recently, mockingly, compared us to Barcelona, I certainly saw some similarities in the outstanding football played. Second half saw a Forest side determined to restore some pride but still we pressed looking for more goals, unlucky to give away the penalty and more so to concede on the rebound but overall a good display and had Danny Ings been firing on all cylinders we could have had 5 or 6.

10 points out of a possible 12 is an outstanding return and shows that we are hitting a solid run of form at just the right time. Now 7 points clear of QPR after recently being 3 point behind them.

Also, well done to Blackburn on picking up a win against an under-par, under-strength Reading. Unfortunately Wigan are flying right now and I'd say they are nailed on for that 6th spot.

After seeing us put 3 past one of the meanest defences in the league I suspect there'll be a few no-dads having nightmares about March 9th tonight.

You don't even support your team you clown. You're 17 points and 21 goals behind your superior neighbours and we're proving week in week out that we are the real deal. Your panic regarding the derby game is evident in every bummed up post. You and the rest of the rodents are literally filling your pants at the thought of facing us in this kind of form.

It won't be long before he has to change it again. Better still he will just disappear forever.

Good evening LP good result for your team today.

It just goes to show that in this league anybody can beat anybody on the day. That's what makes the championship a tuff league to get out of and an exciting one too.

I had a gut feeling Rovers could get a point at Reading but I really didn't expect a win so like we both said last week take each game as it comes and see where we are come the end of the season.

A good weekend all round for both teams.

Had a bit too much to drink tonight? If all you have is attendance figures for a town half again larger than Burnley, then you have little indeed. You can predict and pray all you wish for Burnley to fall but that will not make it happen. 17 points. GO CLARETS!!

3am on a Sunday morning and you had nothing better to do! And as for crowds, how many of your lot showed their 'support' by going to Berkshire? Fewer than 900 and you think you can crow! You're charging thrippence ha'penny to get in to Ewok so that is all that brings a tiny percentage increase and you think that's good? That's truly pathetic. Truly pathetic.

What an immense performance today against a flying Nottingham Forest side. Leicester know we aren't giving up on top spot without a fight and those below might just be thinking this is now a two horse race given Burnley's fantastic recent form. First half was superb, and as several no-dads have recently, mockingly, compared us to Barcelona, I certainly saw some similarities in the outstanding football played. Second half saw a Forest side determined to restore some pride but still we pressed looking for more goals, unlucky to give away the penalty and more so to concede on the rebound but overall a good display and had Danny Ings been firing on all cylinders we could have had 5 or 6.

10 points out of a possible 12 is an outstanding return and shows that we are hitting a solid run of form at just the right time. Now 7 points clear of QPR after recently being 3 point behind them.

Also, well done to Blackburn on picking up a win against an under-par, under-strength Reading. Unfortunately Wigan are flying right now and I'd say they are nailed on for that 6th spot.

After seeing us put 3 past one of the meanest defences in the league I suspect there'll be a few no-dads having nightmares about March 9th tonight.

Derby it is LP and like Forest will be a very tuff game but if we win could give Burnley a strong foothold in that 2nd spot.

Tuff one for Rovers too away at Bolton but your have picked up some good results away from home.

There again as results showed yesterday this is a tuff league and every game is a tuff one. There are no guarantees look at QPR losing to Charlton.

All this of cause is leading towards a great Derby clash in a couple of weeks time. Maybe one of the best yet for a long time between our teams.

People in the media are talking about Rhodes baron run but I'll be honest and say he will be the one to watch when we meet and concerned that he may find his scoring touch against us.

It's been 9 games since we last beat your team so hopefully a win in the tenth will be the next step in cementing us in that automatic spot.

It’s so boring and funny now from these idiots that come on the Burnley threads and mention the crowd. What that has to do with the score line I don’t know. I suppose when you have a brain the size of a pin head it’s understandable. I think they don’t even go to matches which makes it even funnier. What they should look at is how Burnley absolutely steam-rollered a top six team yesterday with some superb football. At one point I thought we were going to see a repeat of that famous 8-0 against the same opponents many year ago. In fact is really could have been 5 or 6, the Clarets were that good. Sam Vokes, big and strong just gets better and better. How Blackburn will handle him in the upcoming derby I don’t know. Little Billy boys couldn’t.

I don't give a toss about the attendances. I DO care about our performances, which continue to get better and better. What made me feel really proud was a quote from the Guardian saying that a better display of attacking football has almost certainly not been seen this season outside of the top flight. in the first half we were quite simply astonishing. As for the Forest reserves argument, why is it that we have played forest at home twice this season and they have fielded a "reserve" side, according to some people? Are they incapable of somehow putting together a full strength side at the Turf? I think not! So they have some players out, so what, they have the biggest squad in the Championship (probably) and I'm getting a little sick of Billy Davies whinging to everyone who will listen about their "injury problems". Beside which they weren't under strength when we got a point at their place.
Burnley are quite simply remarkable this season and ARE good enough to finish in the top two. Our only problem is and always has been our lack of depth, but our first eleven (or 13/14) are as good, in fact better obviously, than anyone else in this division, and, as one of the more moronic jealous ones actually posted above, probably without realising the actual praise in the statement, nobody is THAT lucky.
Finally, well done Rovers, that was a terrific result for you (and us) against Reading, just don't go reading anything into it (yes, the pun was intended).

We've just handed a very good Nottingham Forest side their first defeat in 15 games. How did you go on against Forest? Didn't they whup you 4-1?

We panned them in the first half and could well have got to half time 5-0 or 6-0 up. We were that good. And proof if it was needed that this team is IMPROVING with each game. We fear no one in this division. Before the game the no-dads were crowing about the improvement of Derby and Forest, and that both would push Burnley out of the automatic positions. I'd say on one count we've proved you wrong yet again.

We are now 7 points ahead of QPR, 8 ahead of Forest, we have recently cut Leicester's lead at the top by 5 points, and we play Derby at home next. Our remaining 'difficult' games in the run-in are all at home.

We have the best strike force in the country, and one of the best in Europe in terms of goals per game. Sam Vokes looks unstoppable at the moment and although Danny Ings had an off day we STILL SCORED 3! It's squeaky bum time for the no-dads.

Given that your goals have dried up and want-away Jordan Rhodes has now gone an incredible NINE games without a goal the signs are looking grim for you. Bolton, who are starting to get their act together, could well put an end to your excitement of scraping into the play-offs, after your fortunate win over a severely under-par Reading.

I expect by the time the big derby game arrives you'll have nothing but pride to play for and will be facing a team that is flying towards automatic promotion.

All of the above is fact, but if it makes you feel better to call me mentally obsessive then that's up to you. Another fact is that we are 17 points and 21 goals better off than you. I wouldn't bet against us at Ewood.

But you are mental and obsessive. All the above is fact.
I suggest you look up the word FACT.
Your statements are mainly conjecture actually laced with massive exaggerations. Rhodes has recently signed a 1 year extension to his cotract taking his commitment to Rovers to 5 years, hardly want away is it?
9 games without scoring , yes but so what? We still won. Reading were below par ? How about we did not allow them to play. All the pundits on radio, tv and this newspaper say we deserved the win?
Have you heard your first cuckoo yet.?
Best strike force in Europe? Perleese stop!
As for your predictions on results, you ALWAYS say that the next team we play are resurgent, on a roll, vastly superior blah blah..you have been right how many times?? You said Reading were going to spank us, now its Bolton??
Well I am going to the Bolton game...we will see eh but we have only lost 2 out of the last 10. I think you could say we are getting our act together too.
Lets see what happens at Ewood, but I doubt any of you perverse sexually orientated scenarios will play out...

Best strike force in Europe, possibly. 42 goals by February means they must be up there. In terms of goals per game can you name a better partnership? I'm sure there won't be many.

You got a good result at Reading, I didn't suggest otherwise. A freak result it may be, however the point is you are unable to replicate winning performances over multiple games, as proved with the vital points you have dropped recently against the likes of Barnsley and Middlesbrough. So to expect to suddenly go on a winning run with a much weaker side than that which you have had for most of the season is more than hopeful.

Given your recent chopping and changing due to the impending financial meltdown, you are left with only two central defenders, and as I have pointed out before very poor fullbacks. Any injuries to your defence and you will be in trouble.

Regarding Rhodes, there was transfer speculation in January about a possible move to the Premier League. Has he scored since? No. He wants out, and summer can't come quick enough for him. I believe he has now been found out as a one-dimensional player who lacks power and pace. He value has crashed in the last month and you will lose out massively when you are forced to sell at the end of the season. More than likely he will move to a top end Championship club and break your hearts when he turns out against you next season.

Looking at your consistency over the season so far its quite likely that you will drop points against Bolton and/or Burnley. In which case defeat at Bolton would finally put an end to your excitement re: the play-offs, and in turn mean that you having nothing left to play for by the time we visit, which means only one thing.

Win against Bolton and your season is still dependent on the results of other sides around you, who appear to be doing better than you are, Wigan have now won 4 out of their last 5. You have some tough games to come and I can't see you having the consistency to challenge above mi-table.

I'm only being realistic. The facts are you are not good enough consistently to compete with the best teams in this division. We have proved we are. We are 17 points ahead of you. You can't argue with the facts.

Come on now Darener. Reserves? We've now beaten Forest twice this season at home and drawn away. Do you think Billy Davies is some sort of Burnley fan? People get injured/banned during the season and nothing can stop that. Davies has a bigger than average squad to cope with that and, as they say, you can only beat what's in front of you. Forest were 14 unbeaten prior to our demolition job. Did they suddenly have 10 men out for this one game? I think not! They have coped admirably in the face of their "injury crisis" before Saturday, how come it only counts when they lose? Davies is a moaning whinging fool and has always been so. The only thing they couldn't cope with was a display that had everyone (except you lot) raving. You do post some decent comments Darener but this is not one of them.

A draw is certainly the best you can hope for this time around I'm afraid. I don't think you have faced a Burnley side so strong for many years, we are capable of matching the best in the division and with the 3 points needed to enforce our automatic promotion challenge I believe the game will mean so much more to our players than to yours. If you fail to beat Bolton then I can see no way for you to impact the play-off race and as such with nothing to play for you'll be witness to the first Burnley win at Ewood in some years.

You cannot argue we are the better team and as I have said before I wouldn't swap any of our current first 11 with any of yours, perhaps earlier in the season a scoring Jordan Rhodes would have sneaked in ahead of Sam Vokes but not any more.

I too hope it is a good game for all the right reasons, and I really hope we aren't robbed once again. Your derby day luck has surely run out now.

That's better D. More like your usual decent comments. I just hope that, if we don't win, it's because we don't deserve to rather than bad refereeing and silly deflections. You've got to admit you've rode your luck in the last 3 meetings haven't you?
