Table-topping Burnley will aim to secure the Championship title this weekend when they meet with the struggling Queens Park Rangers at Turf Moor as the Clarets look to heap more misery on the men from London.
Burnley have four games left to play compared o the three of most other teams in the Championship. The gap is also 10 points on Sheffield United this weekend with 12 left on the board, so a win here would secure another Championship title for the Lancashire outfit, regardless of the result in the game between Sheffield United and West Bromwich Albion next Wednesday (the Blades play against Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-finals this week).
Victory on the weekend would secure Burnley's second-ever Championship title since the rebranding in 2004, while it would be their fourth second tier title in history.
Burnley have slipped up in recent weeks since securing promotion, and they now cannot match or beat Reading's 106-point record-breaking tally set in 2005/06, as the Clarets sit 14 points adrift of that tally with just 12 left on the clock.
This comes after a draw with Sunderland at the end of March and a 0-0 draw with Reading last weekend and a 2-2 clash with Rotherham United on Tuesday. It did, in truth, look as if Burnley would destroy Reading's record, but they can still match the best-ever record of fewest defeats with the two that was set back in Reading's record-breaking year.
As for QPR, they remain in great danger after a 3-0 loss to Coventry at home last weekend and a midweek 1-1 draw with Norwich City.
At the same time, we head into this game seeing QPR now on a winless run of seven games, and the fact that Gareth Ainsworth has took the club from 14th to just above the relegation zone, it is turning out to be one of the worst appointments in Championship history.
