Arfield: We Showed What We're About

19 December 2015

Two-goal hero Scott Arfield felt the Clarets showed what they’re all about after putting Charlton to the sword at Turf Moor.

Arfield’s strike on the cusp of half-time lit the touch paper for a 4-0 victory, with further goals from Andre Gray and Sam Vokes.

And the Scot, who made his 100th league start for the club, was particularly happy with the second-half performance.

He said: “We’ve been threatening that, maybe not in the last couple of weeks but we deserved it.

“In the second-half I thought we were brilliant and the fans got right behind us and we showed what we’re all about.

“It’s lovely to score as well, it was a bit lucky at times as I think the second one gets a deflection but I’ll take them all day as it’s the best feeling in the world scoring a goal so you want to keep doing so.

“With the run we’ve been on it was important we got the win today and you could sense the relief when the goal went in.

“Most importantly in the second-half the performance from everyone was great. We rose to the occasion, as did the fans, and Charlton couldn’t deal with us at times.

“Overall we’ve not had a half as dominant as that and it really shows what we’re all about. Front-foot thinking and putting balls into the box with the full-backs bombing on.

“We limited them to very few chances and it could have been more. Rouwen comes on and has a chance, I had another and Kights as well.

“When you’re on top you need to put teams to the sword and thankfully we did that.”

The Clarets face fellow promotion-chasers Hull City next in the Sky Bet Championship on Boxing Day and Arfield is relishing a busy fixture schedule.

He added: “A lot is made of the festive period but as professionals you want to play games and it’s music to our ears.

“It’ll be a tough away fixture at Hull but one we’re all looking forward to.”
