Keane: Let's Get Back To Winning Ways

18 December 2015

Michael Keane aims to bounce back from the midweek defeat at Middlesbrough this weekend at Turf Moor.

The Clarets are without a win in six Championship games but still find themselves in the Play-Off positions.

And with three home games out of the next four in an intense festive period, the 22-year-old centre-back is confident they can get back to winning ways and close the gap on the top two.

Keane said: “It was a tough one for the lads to take, not only in terms of the result but the performance that we were after.

“But there is no better way to put it right than coming home and hopefully getting back to winning ways.

“Everyone knows Christmas is a big period in this league and with a few home games it’s a chance to get a few wins and get the fans right behind us.”

Charlton Athletic head to Turf Moor searching for their first win in four after surrendering a two-goal lead against Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday.

That result saw them slip into the bottom three, but Keane is well aware of the threat the Addicks can pose.

He added: “We saw Preston, who are in a similar situation, come here and upset everyone so we’ll be looking at Charlton as we do every other team.

“We know the threats they’ve got but we feel like we need to improve our performances and we’ll be alright.

“They’ve got a few good players and they will probably look to hit us on the counter-attack because they have a lot of pace in the team but we’ll be ready for that.

“As a defence, we’re becoming better as a unit in terms of knowing what each other is going to do and getting the distances right.

“It’s fine margins so every little mistake gets highlighted. We’ve been unfortunate not to keep a few more clean sheets in some games but it’s something we want to get back to.”
