Previous encounters: Derby County

Burnley have had the better of the last two encounters but history tells us that home advantage plays a part in the majority of games, writes James Bird.

Last time out

Derby had won four of their last four games coming into their tie with the Clarets, whilst the visitors were without a win in seven since playing at Pride Park in April. Charlie Austin was the hero as he grabbed a brace and Burnley could have had more if it had not been for the woodwork. Keith Treacy hit the bar from 12 yards just before the home side made it 1-1 and Austin had headed against the woodwork before half time. Craig Bryson came close on three occasions but Brian Jensen held firm meaning the Clarets would collect all three points.

One for us

Burnley also went to Pride Park needing their first win of the season in 2002, this time under the guidance of Stan Ternent. It was the home side who would start best though as a corner forced by a fantastic Marlon Beresford save found Adam Bolder who made no mistake to beat the Burnley legend in goal. It wasn’t until the second half that the Clarets would get back in the game with a goal as £1m signing Robbie Blake was tripped in the box before he despatched the penalty kick. The travelling fans didn’t have to wait long to see enough though as just four minutes later Blake caused trouble on the counter attack before a Lee Briscoe cross was smashed past the Derby keeper by teammate, and captain, Warren Barton.

Derby County 1 – 2 Burnley. 07 September 2002.

One for them

Derby extended their lead in the Championship in early 2007 when they beat Steve Cotterill’s Clarets. It was a day of red cards as Cotterill was sent to the stands along with opposite number Billy Davies, for the second game in a row, and Eric Djemba-Djemba took an early bath after two bookings. In fact the only goal of the game came as a result of a Djemba-Djemba foul. David Jones took the free kick, finding Steve Howard to head home in the box. Cotterill was most unhappy with his sending off, as well as the defending for the goal, stating: “It was a stupid, sloppy goal. Howard’s headed it in at knee height.”
