Juke: We'll be brave again!

17 October 2014

Lukas Jutkiewicz says Burnley will continue to be brave as they seek their first victory of the season against West Ham this weekend.

The Clarets went into the international break after a picking up a last-gasp point away at Leicester City in a 2-2 draw, courtesy of Ross Wallace’s 96th minute free-kick.

And while the 25-year-old striker admits it would have been nice to play a game the next week to build momentum, Jutkiewicz says going into the break on a positive note can only help the side moving forward.

Jutkiewicz said: “It was obviously nice having gone into the break having got the last-gasp equaliser. It’s always nice to go in on a more positive note.

“It might have been good to have a game the following week and get a bit of momentum.

“We took it to Leicester in the second half I think and we were well worthy of at least a point.

“Any game we’re going to try and get as many points as possible, we need as many as we can get of course.

“It’s important whether it is home or away that we try and be brave to do just that.”

Dyche’s side will be boosted by the return to fitness of Danny Ings, Nathaniel Chalobah and David Jones with Kieran Trippier also back in contention for this weekend’s Turf Moor clash.

Sam Vokes recovery continues apace and Jutkiewicz is confident that with the next three fixtures out of four at home, their Lancashire home can become a fortress once again as they look to climb the top-flight

table by turning performances into points.

“People say that Turf Moor would be the place we’ll pick up most of our points but you have to go into every game thinking you’re going to get three points.

“It’d be nice to make it a fortress though!

“I’ve enjoyed my time from day one here as everyone has made me feel very welcome so it’s been great.

“It’ll be great to get in front of our fans again and hopefully they’ll get behind us and we can turn that into positive results.”
