Austin: We Need A Win

3 October 2012

Red hot striker desperate to turn goals into wins.

Charlie Austin admits Burnley need to find a win from somewhere after his latest hat-trick was not enough to deliver three points against struggling Sheffield Wednesday.
Austin took his total for the season to a remarkable 14 in 11 games with his second treble in five matches.
But even after putting the Clarets ahead for a third time six minutes from the end, the Owls were still able to hit back and end a run of six successive defeats with a stunning goal of their own from Michail Antonio.
And even though Eddie Howe’s men have lost only one of their last four games, Austin is desperate to turn one point into three after letting a lead slip in the closing minutes for the second home game running to leave the Clarets 15th in the Championship table.
“It was nice for me to score three but we haven’t got the win again. It’s another late goal conceded and the lads are disappointed,” admitted the country’s top scorer.
 “We know what we’ve got to do. We need to stop these sloppy goals.
“We know that. Things are going on in-house and we are sorting out and we will be doing that on Thursday in training.
“We are carving teams open. I don’t think there’s a game where we haven’t created numerous chances and that’s what we are good at.

“We just need to shut up shop at the back a bit and we will be a side moving forward.
“We need to win and we need to get three points, wherever they come from, and we need it fast.”
Austin has scored in all but two of the games he has played so far this season as he keeps cranking up the statistics.
The 23-year-old has bagged 20 goals in his last 19 appearances for the Clarets and now has a career record standing at 68 goals in 126 games.
“It’s the best I’ve been,” he added.
“I don’t know what to put it down to but I have got my head down and worked hard and I really want it.
“I really want to score goals every time I go on the pitch, but like I have said so many times, without my team mates I can’t score these goals.”
