It's All About Endings For Danny

13 August 2013

In-form Clarets striker Danny Ings insists it is all about team success, despite his blistering start to the Championship campaign.

The 21-year-old opened the scoring in the weekend victory at Hillsborough meaning - with pre-season goals included - he has now notched eight goals in seven games and scored in all seven!

But Ings insists that whatever his goal tally may be, he is far more concerned that the team get points on the board.

He said: “It has been a good run of form for me and I’m delighted but it’s far more important that we got the three points. That is the main thing.

“We’re feeling fit and strong as a team and we’re playing some really attractive football at the moment and it’s paying off.

“To play three games in a week and get four points as well as cup progression is a good start.”

Ings and strike partner Sam Vokes came in for most of the praise after their goals helped Burnley on their way to victory at Hillsborough to maintain their unbeaten start to the campaign.

And while Ings will be hoping his rich vein of form can continue at home to Yeovil this weekend, he is keen to highlight the defence as a major factor behind the Clarets’ current fortunes.

“The strikers always seem to get more of the plaudits but Heats (Tom Heaton) in goal was fantastic and the defence were phenomenal,” he added.

“Some of the blocks Jason Shackell and Kevin Long made in the last twenty minutes against a bombardment of aerial attacks were great. And Sheffield Wednesday have some big lads!

“It is one of the toughest places to go in this division for me, but we dug in, just as we did last year, to get the result we all wanted.”
