In-form Andre Gray making history at Burnley

5 November 2015

Andre Gray was on the scoresheet twice for Burnley against Fulham on Tuesday night.

'So what?' I hear you ask.

Well, the Burnley hotshot's latest brace saw him match a long-standing club record - Gray has now hit two goals in each of the Clarets' last three home matches, something that was last achieved 103 years ago.

The 24-year-old, who arrived at the club from Brentford in the summer, had previously put two past Bolton Wanderers and Huddersfield Town, and he continued his Turf Moor hot streak in the 3-1 win over the Cottagers.

Coincidentally, Fulham were also one of the teams to fall victim to Bert Freeman, the man who achieved the feat way back in 1912.

Freeman added to his tally with two against Bradford City, before hitting four in one game against Leicester Fosse - so Andre, you're slacking!

Gray and his team-mates aren't back at Turf Moor until the visit of unbeaten Brighton & Hove Albion on 22nd November, and the Seagulls will have to be on their guard to prevent Gray from writing himself into Burnley's history books.

7 - Andre Gray has scored seven goals in his last six @SkyBetChamp appearances for Burnley. Beauty.
