Burnley’s Championship season continued with a nil-nil draw against QPR at Loftus Road on Saturday as the Clarets’ winless run was extended to five-matches.

QPR, under the guidance of former Dutch international Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink for the first time since his recent arrival as boss, had the better of the first half chances but couldn’t beat Tom Heaton.

The Clarets would have suffered defeat again had it not been for a goal line clearance from Scott Arfield in injury-time as he prevented Grant Hall from giving the hosts the points.

Sam Vokes had the best of the Burnley chances in the second half but he couldn’t finish either header.

The other results were.

Friday 11th December 2015
Blackburn 1-0 Rotherham
Wolves 1-1 Nottm Forest

Saturday 12th December 2015
MK Dons 0-1 Ipswich
Cardiff 2-2 Sheff Wed
Charlton 0-0 Leeds
Derby 2-2 Brighton
Fulham 2-2 Brentford
Huddersfield 1-2 Bristol City
Hull 1-0- Bolton
Middlesbrough 0-0 Birmingham
Preston 1-0 Reading
QPR 0-0 Burnley

Looking at these results the stand out ones (as such) have to be the wins for Ipswich, Bristol City and Preston for me?

Ipswich winning one-nil at MK Dons saw the Tractor Boys into the play-off places and as much as that win wasn’t a surprise in many way they did win it was another good win that sets them up nicely and saw Mick McCarthy celebrate his MotM win with a victory!

For only a second time away from Ashton Gate three-points were collected by Bristol City in a relegation battle with Huddersfield that the Robins came out two-one winners in.

Preston followed up the win at Burnley with another when managerless Reading continued to struggle (and dropped to 12th) at Deepdale with the Lilywhites victorious one-nil.
