Number 28 May 1 2017
Bolton Wanderers’ stay in Division 1 was of minimum length, just 12 months as they cruised past Peterborough United 3-0 to clinch the second automatic promotion place. It was another triumph for manager Phil Parkinson who, after one season at the Macron, now has the opportunity to test his skills in the Championship.
Some things are worth waiting for and in Burnley’s case, it was their first away win of the Premier League season. They had failed to win in 17 consecutive games on their travels but two unanswered goals from Barnes and substitute Gray at Crystal Palace righted that particular wrong. To add icing to the cake, it has surely secured their league status for another year.
