Wingman Ross Wallace prepared for Millwall battle.Ross Wallace admits the Clarets must be prepared to put in a shift to end their Millwall hoodoo.
The Lions come to Turf Moor on Saturday in the Championship’s bottom three after losing their last three games.
But Kenny Jackett’s side has won at Burnley in each of the last two seasons and Wallace is determined to stop the rot and build on the Clarets’ improving home record.
“They have always been a sticky team for us,” said the Scotsman.
“They a big strong side and well organised so we will have to be on our mettle and battle for it early doors.
“Last season it was a very tough game. They pressed us and got in our faces, so we will have to match that, especially early on in the game, and hopefully our quality will come through in the end.
“Last season was disappointing when we lost a lot of points at home when we could have maybe sneaked in the play-offs.
“This season hasn’t been too bad and hopefully come Saturday we can get another three points.”
Ross Wallace is hungry to score
Eddie Howe’s men are looking for a third win in four Championship games at Turf Moor in the first of back-to-back home fixtures.
With ten-goal striker Charlie Austin in red-hot form, the Clarets will be looking to expose a Millwall defence which is yet to keep a clean sheet this term.
But Wallace insists Burnley should not be relying solely on their talisman and is hungry to get off the mark for the campaign.
“To be fair Charlie’s been magnificent and that’s his job. He’s banging them in and doing very well,” added Wallace, who contributed half a dozen goals last season.
“If Charlie’s not the top goalscorer at the end of the season he’ll be disappointed himself. He’s a clinical finisher.
“But we’ve been working on scoring goals from midfield in training. Junior has got a couple this year, Chris McCann has scored and so has Deano, so it’s up to us to start chipping in.
“I have been working hard at trying to score and I’m pretty positive the goals will come.”
