thumbnail Hello,

There's a Lancashire derby on Saturday lunch time as Sean Dyche's high flying side look to continue their fantastic form and our tipster backing is goals

Burnley host Blackburn Rovers at Turf Moor this weekend with both sides eager to claim bragging rights in this Lancashire derby. With five games already played in the Championship, the table is starting to take shape as we play the first Championship games in September.

Burnley come into this match in third position in the league, with the chance to jump above both Blackpool and QPR into top spot. Sean Dyche's side have only lost one match this season, with Brighton comfortably winning 2-0.

However, this has been their only set back, winning their last two games against Preston North End in the Capital One Cup and impressively seeing off Derby 3-0 at Pride Park in the league. Paddy Power price them at 6/5 (2.20) to take all three points.

Blackburn Rovers have had a more inconsistent start to the season winning their last two games after losing three before their win against Barnsley at home.

Gary Bowyer's side sit in 11th position in the league on seven points. Last time out Rovers continued their fine home form, impessively beating Bolton 4-1. Despite these two recent wins, Paddy Power price them at 11/5 (3.20) to win on Saturday lunch time. The same firm price the draw at 23/10 (3.30).

A bet that stands out in this fixture is total team goals. Despite selling Charlie Austin in the summer, Burnley haven't struggled for goals. The likes of Danny Ings and Sam Vokes have stepped up to the plate which has seen the Clarets score two or more goals in five of their last six games. Paddy Power price this bet at 11/10 (2.10) which is a fantastic price worth taking advantage of.

For those looking for more value, backing over 1.5 goals in the first half is certainly worth a smaller stake. Paddy Power price this at 15/8 (2.88) and when you consider this has paid out both of the sides last two matches, its defiantly worth a small investment.
