Burnley Football Club celebrated gaining three points and a victory over Watford FC this Saturday. The Clarets achieved a 2-1 win over Watford at Vicarage Road over the weekend, which was a great result for the team. Late goals from Jack Cork and Josh Brownhill earned Mike Jackson’s side a third victory in a row and moved them above Leeds United on goal difference. Burnley are currently five points clear of Everton and the bottom three in the league. Josh Brownhill scored the winning goal.
Even though they started the match poorly with James Tarkowski scoring an own-goal, Burnley managed to win in the end. Club chairman Mike Garlick and current manager Mike Jackson had nothing but praise for the team and their efforts in the second half of the match. Mike Jackson has replaced Sean Dyche earlier in the month and has had a winning streak since then with three wins consecutively for the Clarets. This was a massive result for Burnley, who have clearly shown that they deserve to be in the Premier League. Whether they can top the table now remains to be seen.
Burnley have now reaped five wins, two draws and that defeat to City.
The string of recent wins have left many happy with the change of manager. Dyche had many fantastic attributes but his stubborn reluctance to use Cork this season was baffling, and, ultimately, one of the things which led to him no longer being manager. The one’s making the decisions come the end of the season, chairman Alan Pace, Jackson, Mike Garlick or someone else, they should definitely make sure the option to tie Cork up for an extra season is there.
Burnley recently won against Norwich city, Southampton (both 2-0) and also beat Wolves 1-0. They drew with West Ham and are due to play Aston Villa on the 7th of May. In a few days we will see whether the dream will last for the Clarets and what the future holds for them in the Premier League.
