Crystal Palace v Burnley The Preview The Prediction

With all 12 Championship matches taking place today, it promises to be a busy afternoon of action. Here we preview one of the key games as the Championship enters its tenth round of fixtures..

It has been a remarkable turn around for Crystal Palace.  Since losing their opening three Championship games, the Eagles have embarked on an unbeaten 6 game run which includes five victories.

Perhaps the most impressive of those wins came at Wolves in midweek as a Wilfred Zaha double saw Palace come from behind to claim the points at Molineux.

With Zaha in the side, manager Dougie Freedman will believe that his team can achieve great things this season and a play off place isn’t beyond the realms of possibility.

Today they welcome league entertainers Burnley, who would be far higher up the league table if only they had a half decent defence.  In Charlie Austin, they have the country’s leading goalscorer right now, and it is paramount that Eddie Howe can orchestrate an improvement at the back if they are to really benefit from Austin’s goals.  Prediction ; 3-1
