Michael Kightly puts Burnley on brink of promotion at Blackpool
Burnley can glimpse the promised land. It is tantalisingly close, so near they can almost touch it, but they are not quite there yet. They celebrated victory in the Blackpool sunshine, unsure if Michael Kightly’s wonderful winner was the goal that had taken them into the Premier League. A couple of hours later, they had their answer. Derby’s triumph at Doncaster means it was merely another stepping stone. Now only one more stride is required. Should Burnley beat Wigan on Monday, it matters not what anyone else does. They will be promoted.
Few could question their right to go up. “This group of players deserve to be where they are: second in the table with lots of points,” said the Burnley manager, Sean Dyche. “Two points a game is a strong marker. We have done that all season. To get 86 with three [games] to go is a powerful message.”
Still more $405 celine women’s baby audrey cl 41053 powerful, of course, would be the ratification of their return to the top flight and they moved to the brink in fitting fashion. Their campaign has been notable for relentless industry, stoic defending and a sprinkling of magical moments. This game contained each.
Typically for Burnley, this was a triumph of teamwork, but it was garnished by a glorious goal. Exchanging passes with Dean Marney, Kightly unleashed an unstoppable, left-footed shot that flew past Matt Gilks. “A sublime finish,” said Dyche. It was a redemptive moment for the winger, who had spurned Burnley’s clearest opening of the first half when he anticipated 0 celine a scene 75 hours Jack Robinson’s underhit back-pass but shot straight at Gilks.
In a game where chances were rarities, it threatened to be crucial. Instead celine replica trapeze bag, Burnley returned after the break with greater intent and a touch of invention. David Jones picked out Michael Duff with a well-worked corner routine and the centre-back drilled narrowly wide. Then Kightly struck and Blackpool’s defensive gameplan was rendered redundant.
Attacking is not their forte. The Seasiders have mustered 10 goals from their last 21 games. An 11th was rarely threatened but the $1k iconic nib celine bam bam sandals nude 37 us 7 size of the prize made the finale nervous for Burnley. Deep into stoppage time, Andy Halliday’s volley was brilliantly headed over his own bar by Kieran Trippier.
And so these Lancashire rivals are heading in very different directions. They were neighbours near the summit of early-season league tables but now Blackpool, who have won only twice since November, have taken 11 points from a possible 78. League One looms and the Burnley 0 celine 173823ska 18cc may craft fans gloated: “We’ll never play you again.”
Yet the fractious air at Bloomfield Road owed little to the visitors. Blackpool, once the Premier League’s feelgood story, are descending into civil war. “They have interesting times,” said Dyche, with deliberate understatement. The $2150 celine black laser floral cutout hem strapless silk taffeta dress 36 nwt home supporters’ protests against the continued ownership of the Oyston family included choruses calling for them to go. More remarkable was an unusual visual display of dissent.
In the 53rd minute – chosen because of the 1953 FA Cup final, the most famous date in Blackpool’s history – tennis balls and tangerines were thrown on to the pitch. A two-man pitch invasion followed and the turf had to be cleared of fans and fruit before play could resume.
“The fans have got every right to demonstrate if they don’t like the chairman or the board,” said Barry Ferguson, the caretaker manager. “I just would rather they do it before or after the game.” Warring parties on the Blackpool staff could not wait for the final whistle either. The assistant manager, Bob Malcolm, deciding Stephen Dobbie was taking too long to warm up, shoved the substitute in the face and was duly sent to the stands.
“Tensions are a bit high,” said Ferguson. “They are both passionate guys. I have no problem with $3100 celine medium luggage phantom handbag metallic blue calf that.” Perhaps not, but problems abound at Bloomfield Road, while Burnley’s destiny is in their own hands. “We can only control the controllables,” Dyche said. They are doing just that.
