Midfielder insists confidence remains intact at Turf Moor
Brian Stock insists the Clarets have nothing to lose as they look to re-ignite their season against Huddersfield Town at Turf Moor tonight.
Burnley have slipped off the play-off pace on the back of a five-game winless run.
But with a couple of draws in that sequence and the narrowest of defeats at in-form Brighton last Saturday, Stock sees no reason to be running scared.
“We believe we are good enough for the top six. In the last five results we have maybe come away from it a bit,” said the midfield play-maker.
“But we have nothing to lose and nothing to fear and if we can go into games full of confidence and give it a go you never know where it will take us.
“The last couple of games we have done well. The manager has given us good feedback, but we need to win games.
“Although performances have been there or thereabouts we need to turn those into wins.
“We need a win but the lads are still confident.”
Huddersfield have been dragged into the relegation scrap on the back of an alarming run of only one win in their last 17 Championship games.
But Stock is taken nothing for granted as the Terriers come to Turf Moor for the first time for 12 years looking to complete a double over Burnley following their 2-0 success last August and give new boss Mark Robins his first win as Town boss.
“In the first game I thought they were a very good side and gave us a really good game, so we need to be fully prepared and ready for a tough battle,” he added.
Supporters can pay at the gate tonight, although concessions must be bought from the ticket office.
