First time we'll have played them for a while, and I think it could be a very tricky game for us.

Looks like we'll be able to play Gray from the start, which should help us no end, however we still look shakey at the back and in midfield with the injuries we have, so even if we do get something here I think Burnley will score.

Heart says 2-1 to us, but I think a point would be a good result given everything that has gone on, and head says this is likely. I'll plump for 1-1.

Likely team:

Button
Colin - Dean - O'Connell - Bidwell
Judge - Diagouraga - Kerschbaumer
Gray - Hofmann - Gogia

After two points from the opening three games we really need to get a win here.

So far our strikers haven't really clicked and I'm not sure Dyche knows which is his best front two. He's favoured Jutkiewicz so far this season but he never really looks like scoring. Vossen hasn't really shown too much promise so far either, so we're lacking in fire power.

I'll say 1-0 with a Michael Duff header from a set-piece.

Now it looks like Gray is going, I'll change my prediction and go for a Burnley win.

Reckon Gray will start? Based on Saturday he's the exact type of player that would tear apart your defence

I was almost spot on, other than I predicted the wrong CB to score.
Thought we were the better side, but it was very poor defending on the set piece. We offered very little in the second half as well.

Oh well, we move on.

Didn't see the game myself but I'll take a scrappy, undeserved win at this point. Getting our first 3 points was crucial, regardless of how it came.

Still concerned by our lack of effectiveness up front. Hopefully Andre Gray gives us more penetration in the final third.

Sounded like an awful game and 0-0 would have been the right result. Our bench was shocking today, 3 development players and three defenders.. We desperately need some signings this week.
