Crunch Time for Burnley

The next five games on the schedule could make or break Burnley's Premiere League survival. They are:

at Portsmouth
at Wolves

Now, let's confine the Arsenal game to the loss bin. To me, at least five points are needed from the four remaining games, and there's no reason why that can't be achieved. If Burnley can't break their away duck against the two weakest EPL teams, Pompey and Wolves, then it may just never happen. Fulham and Bolton are well within our "sphere", so home victories are hoped for there as well.

At least two wins would be preferred, but a win and two draws would suffice as well. Anything less, and relegation may loom at the end of the season. After all, there won't be a more reasonable patch of fixtures than this.
