Mee: We're Relishing The Run-In

6 February 2015

Ben Mee is looking forward to an exciting season run-in as Burnley prepare to welcome West Bromwich Albion to Turf Moor on Sunday.

The Clarets approach the early, televised kick-off sitting one place and one point above the relegation zone in the Premier League table – with 15 rounds of fixtures left to be played.

Sean Dyche’s team know that a win against West Brom, who are currently in 15th position, would see them leapfrog the Baggies in the league standings.

And despite the disappointment of two defeats in a row, Mee is relishing a challenging run-in to the season.

He said: “We were all disappointed with last week when the performance wasn’t up to our usual standards.

“You can’t be too down on it though and equally you can’t get too high when you’ve done the job.

“We worked so hard last year to get us to the position we are now in and we’re enjoying it. We’re here to play against the best teams in the country and some of the best teams in the world.

“We have done a good job of it so far and we’re all looking forward to what should be an exciting run-in.

“It’s one step at a time and we’re always looking ahead. We know they’re going to come here very well organised, but all the lads will be buzzing for it.

“The crowd will get behind us and push us on and hopefully we can go back to what we do best and get the three points on Sunday.”

Mee was on the scoresheet when he headed in his first goal in nearly two and a half years in the last home match against Crystal Palace.

It was his first goal since a brave header in a 2-2 draw against Millwall in September 2012.

And Mee, who was named in Eurosport's European team of the month (based on Opta statistics), doesn’t hide his ambition to contribute more goals as the second half of the season progresses.

He added: “That’s what everyone enjoys doing – scoring goals!

“I’m happy and lucky enough to be going up for set pieces now and I’m definitely looking to get on the end of things.

“Hopefully I can get a few more goals between now and the end of the season.”
