Clarets Equal Post-War Record

29 January 2014

Sean Dyche’s Clarets continue to set records as they fly high in the Championship.

The class of 2013/14 have already equalled the best ever start to a league season in over a Century, following a run of eight successive wins and 10 wins in 11 games in all competitions earlier in the campaign.

The Clarets have also enjoyed more weeks at the top of the table this season than any time in the last 40 years, since the 1972/73 Division Two championship winning campaign.

And the 0-0 draw at home to Brighton on Tuesday night also enabled Dyche’s side to equal another long-standing record.

The draw took their unbeaten home league run to 18 games, equalling a post-War record set on two previous occasions.

Jimmy Adamson’s ‘Team of the Seventies’ achieved that feat in the calendar year between March and December 1973. 

The second, earlier sequence was set between August and April in the 1956/57 campaign, which saw Alan Brown’s side finish seventh in Division One.
