Mee Enjoys The Quiet Life

3 November 2012

Ben Mee delighted to help new boss make winning start

Ben Mee admits he would be happy to settle for the quiet life if it means repeating the kind of comfortable win the Clarets recorded in Sean Dyche’s first game in charge.

Man of the match Mee helped keep a second successive Turf Moor clean sheet as Wolves were despatched 2-0 in ruthless fashion.

And the defender – recalled at left-back following a one-match ban – hopes the lack of drama bodes well for the future.

“I was upset to miss the Cardiff game but I’m glad to have come back in and played well,” said Mee.

“I think all the lads played well and there could have been at least five or six who got man of the match.

“It was a good team performance and a great way to start the gaffer’s reign.

“We haven’t done that enough – a boring 2-0! We are usually scoring hat-loads and conceding hat-loads.

“But that’s the way we want to play. We want to concede less goals and we were happy with today – especially the defence.

“The gaffer wants us to work hard but he wants to play smart as well and I think we did that. It was a great result.”

The Clarets have now won three of their last four games to climb to 13th-place in the Championship, level on points with the three clubs above them.

That pack includes Leeds United, who come to Turf Moor on Tuesday night.

And Mee is hoping for another high profile scalp to continue the feel-good feeling surrounding the fresh start under Dyche.

“The last game against Blackpool here we ground out a result again with a really good performance.

“We’ve done the same today and we want to go on again and get another clean sheet and that’s the aim.

“We are not going to sit on our laurels. We want to go out and put on a good performance on Tuesday and hopefully get another clean sheet and another win.”
