At last, proper english football is back!!! This Saturday sees Burnley take on Bolton Wanderers in the opening fixture of the 2013/14 Championship season. This is a massive fixture in this part of the world and a great way to start the season.
Now news has just come through today that Burnley goal machine Charlie Austin has left the club and joined QPR, this will have a massive impact on their season and with it coming so close to the kick off of the season will surely have an adverse effect on team moral let alone the obvious quality they will now miss.

Bolton had a very solid 2nd half to last season and I think they will really push on to better things this campaign (they are one of my tips for promotion this season). They have also captured Jermaine Beckford in the summer who is a proven goal scorer at this level. In their last 7 games of last season they only lost once, scoring 12 goals and conceding 8.
Burnley finished last season with a flurry with 2 wins in a row. But before this they had only won 4 from 18, although this run was littered with draws.
It would seem that Burnley don't score or win very often nor do they lose very often. With this game being a derby match & first game of the season etc, both teams will want to start well and impress, so I would think both teams to score would have to be a banker, this is best priced at 14/5 with Stan James.
I think though that will be just about as good as it gets for Burnley in this game, and can see Bolton winning comfortably, and there is good value for this with Bolton being 9/5 to win with Bet Victor.
I am also going to suggest a correct score here of 1-3 to Bolton this is a massive 25/1 with Betfair, and I really do not see it being that unlikely.
Bolton win – 9/5 Bet Victor
Both teams to score – 4/5 Stan James
Bolton 3-1 – 25/1 Betfair
