Burnley have played a total of 19 league games on 19th March of which we have won 9, drawn 2 and lost 8.

Six of those wins came in successive games from 1960 to 1994, two of them in title chases of which one was won and one lost, and two more as the team were heading into the play-offs.

Back in 1960, Arsenal were beaten 3-2 at the Turf. Ray Pointer, Brian Miller and John Connelly were the scorers as we continued to put the top two under pressure. We were now just a point behind Wolves but four points behind leaders Spurs although with two games in hand on both.

The next win on this date also saw us in 3rd place in the First Division. We beat West Brom 2-1 at the Hawthorns. Alex Elder and Gordon Harris got the goals this time to leave us level with Leeds (they had two games in hand) but a massive eight points behind leaders Liverpool who had played one more game.

The other four wins have all come in lower divisions. We were down in the Second Division when we won 1-0 at Orient in 19
