Burnley have made a promising start under Vincent Kompany, but where do they rank in the Championship attendance table?

The Clarets have attracted an average home gate of 19,177 since the start of the campaign, according to figures from transfermarkt.co.uk.

This figure puts the club in the top 10 across the division, which is pretty impressive given the size of the town.

Sunderland find themselves at the top of the list, with an average of more than 34,000 fans at the Stadium of Light this term.

Sheffield United and Norwich City also rank highly, with figures of more than 28,000 and 27,000 respectively.

Middlesbrough and West Bromwich Albion complete the top five, while Stoke City and Bristol City’s average home gates are also north of 20,000.

Luton Town are currently at the bottom of the list, with an average of less than 10,000 supporters at Kenilworth Road this season.

Rotherham United, Blackpool and Wigan Athletic also find themselves near the foot of the table at this early stage.
