MATCH PREVIEW: Burnley v Albion

6 May 2017

Everything you need to know ahead of Saturday's clash

ALBION's Premier League season continues on Saturday with a trip to Turf Moor to face Burnley (ko 3pm).

The opposition

The Clarets picked up their first away win of the season last weekend at Crystal Palace, and now look certain to retain their top-flight status for another year. It's been their home form that has been so impressive - Sean Dyche's side have picked up 32 of their 39 points at Turf Moor. They'll be looking to make that 35 against the Baggies this weekend.

Last time out

Albion ran riot at The Hawthorns when the sides last met in November. Matt Phillips, James Morrison, Darren Fletcher and Salomon Rondon were on target in a 4-0 win.

Stats

The Baggies are just six points away from their record Premier League points tally.

But Albion haven't won at Turf Moor since 2002.

From the archive

Jason Roberts was the hero in that victory, bagging both goals in a 2-0 win. Gary Megson's side would be promoted the following April.


Head to head

The record between the two sides makes happy reading for Albion fans. The Baggies have won 55, drawn 28 and lost 45 matches against the Clarets.

Ticket news

The clash in Lancashire is sold out, with close to 2,500 Albion fans making the trip to Turf Moor.

The club will be laying on free coach travel.
