Marney roars in the Lions' Den
Midfielder Dean Marney turned in arguably one of his best ever performances for Burnley last Saturday in the 2-0 win against Millwall at the Den, a result that lifted us into seventh place in the league.
Burnley played as well as at any time this season and the catalyst for the performance came from midfield where Chris McCann, and in particular Marney, were in really good form.
Marney's performance won him both the man of the match vote and the player ratings on Clarets Mad, and it was very much a one horse race in the man of the match vote with the real contest coming for second place.
The former Hull midfielder won 46.7% of the vote and it was Junior Stanislas, with a share of 8.8%, who just took second place at the last minute from McCann and Sam Vokes who were joint third with 8.4% of the vote each.
Other than Marney in front, the player ratings brought a different result. He won that with a rating of 9.00 out of 10 but this time Jason Shackell came in second. HIs rating was 8.38 and Kieran Trippier was third with a rating of 8.00. Stanislas was again amongst the points, coming fourth with a rating of 7.88 out of 10.
That result gives Marney the maximum ten points towards the Clarets Mad Player of the Year. Stanislas won four points, there were three points for Shackell and all of McCann, Trippier and Vokes won two points.
It all means Marney moves into third place for the Clarets Mad Player of the Year. He's now just four points behind Lee Grant but, even with the ten points for this game, is still 21 points behind leader Charlie Austin.
The next vote will be the man of the match for tomorrow's Birmingham game and will be available within an hour of the final whistle.
