What every Championship manager has had to say about leaders Burnley — from Paul Heckingbottom and Alex Neil to Tony Mowbray and Michael Carrick

Runaway leaders Burnley have been the talk of the Championship this season.

Vincent Kompany’s Clarets are on the cusp of a Premier League return after losing just twice in 37 games in the second tier.

The club’s 17-game unbeaten run in the league, which included a record equalling 10 wins on the bounce, has taken the table toppers 13 points clear of Sheffield United at the summit.

And, having stretched their advantage over third place Middlesbrough to 16 points, while owning a game in hand, they could theoretically wrap up promotion on Good Friday, should they win at the Riverside.

Burnley have accrued 83 points, they’ve averaged two goals-per-game, and they’re well on course to become only the sixth club in the history of the second tier to reach a three-figure points return.

Here’s what the manager of each Championship club has said about the champions elect this season.
