Keane Looking To Put Things Right

27 December 2015

Michael Keane hopes to put things right quickly by taking maximum points against Bristol City tomorrow.

The Clarets were defeated on Boxing Day at Hull City but such is the nature of the Championship, the quick turnaround presents another opportunity at home.

Keane, who scored the winner in the reverse fixture at Ashton Gate, said: “It was disappointing against Hull but the good thing about Christmas is you’ve got a lot of games so we can put things right quickly.

“It was a tough game at Ashton Gate earlier this season but we got two set-piece goals and managed to see the game through so hopefully we can get a few goals and get a bit of confidence back.

“I actually thought we defended well in the first-half but then the game became very open in the second-half. I think the lads just need a bit more confidence and clarity in front of goal away.

“At home we’ve been good so we’re looking forward to getting back to Turf Moor and hopefully getting a few goals.”

Last time out at Turf Moor, the Clarets scored four for the first time under Sean Dyche in a league game to register a 4-0 victory over Charlton Athletic.

And the 22-year-old defender is hoping the fans can play a key role again as they look to close the gap to the automatic promotion places.

He added: “We heard the fans chanting in the last home game against Charlton and it really helps us as players. Hopefully they can get stay behind us.

“To take 2000 on Boxing Day with the conditions back home was fantastic and we were really thankful of that support.

“It’s been fantastic all season home and away and hopefully we can give them something to cheer about with a win on Monday.”
