Cisak and Trippier are Preston stars

03 September 2013 11:36
Goalkeeper Alex Cisak, in his first Burnley start, and right back Kieran Trippier were the winners in the man of the match vote and player ratings following our 2-0 Capital One Cup win against Preston a week ago. Man of the match Alex Cisak

The pair took the top two places in the man of the match and player ratings and it was Cisak, who had such a good first game, making two very good saves in particular, who won it with 28.8% of the vote.

Trippier, who I thought was back to his best, came in second with a 25.0% share with Scott Arfield and Jason Shackell sharing third place after both winning 9.2% of the vote.

The vote had been close between the top two and so it was with the player ratings. This time the winner was Trippier. His rating was 7.79 out of 10, just ahead of the 7.62 rating for Cisak.

Shackell was again in third place with a rating of 7.14 and his central defensive partner Michael Duff, making his first appearance of the season, took fourth place with a rating of 6.83 out of 10.

This result gives both Cisak and Trippier eight points towards the Clarets Mad Player of the Year. Shackell collects four points, Arfield wins two points and Duff gets one point.

It means Shackell's lead at the top of the table has been reduced to six points with Trippier moving clear in second place ahead of both David Jones and Keith Treacy.

You can still vote and leave player ratings for the Derby game, but that ends today. As always, man of the match votes can be made via the front page of the site or directly on the  VOTING POLLS page.

The player ratings can be left on Eli's Message Board on the appropriate thread.

When the vote for the Derby game ends, it will be immediately followed by the first monthly goal vote with fourteen choices for August.
