Keith: Point Could be Cherry On The Cake

17 February 2014

Keith Treacy believes that Burnley’s draw away at Bournemouth could prove priceless at the end of the season.

The winger came off the bench to rescue a point for the Clarets on the South Coast last Saturday.

The draw helped stretch Burnley’s lead over third-placed Queens Park Rangers to four points in the Championship table. 

It also extended the Clarets solid unbeaten run to nine league games.

Furthermore, Sean Dyche’s team have now picked up eight points from their last four matches; having come from behind in three of them!

And Treacy insists the draw at the Goldsands Stadium could prove valuable ahead of the next two big home fixtures, against Nottingham Forest and Derby County.

He said: “It could prove to be with the couple of games coming up. 

“There is no point in getting too downbeat about it. It was a difficult pitch and a difficult team to play against. 

“Bournemouth knocked the ball around well, so I think it is a decent point.”

The Irishman, who recently struggled with a neck injury, sustained during the recent warm weather training in Spain, insisted he was now fully fit again.

And the Irishman admits all his focus is now on this weekend’s big Turf Moro clash with fourth–placed Forest.

He added: “It is going a big game and I’ve got my family coming over as well, so I am looking forward to it.

“It would be nice to take points off them, so that we could give ourselves a bit of breathing space and keep pressure on QPR and the others.”
