Wll be an interesting evening after Burnley tried to lure away Sean O'Driscoll from the Keepmoat in January. Although I am very glad I really can't understand the appointment of Brian Laws. Couldn't then and I still can't.

Burnley will be wanting to bounce back after a few bad results. Lets hope O'Driscoll can show them 'what they could have won'.
