Arfield Hails Scotland Support

23 July 2015

Scott Arfield has hailed the Clarets fans that made the journey to Scotland after the trip came to a close with a 3-0 win over St Mirren.

Arfield netted the winner in a 1-0 win at Ibrox on a rare return to his homeland as the squad were backed by a vociferous away following of around 1000.

And the 26-year-old winger moved to offer his thanks to those that had travelled north of the border.

“They were magic and they’re always in great voice. When this fixture got announced it’s a proper game for them to come up and see.

“It’s all about the fitness base and I think we all need to give a big thank you to the fans for making the four hour journey up here and I’m sure they thoroughly enjoyed it as well.”

The flying Scot also believes the fixture and the occasion provided the perfect pre-season test as Sean Dyche’s side step up their preparations.

Arfield added: “It’s always great getting back up here and playing a game. It was brilliant to get the win in what was a proper pre-season game and lovely to nick a goal as well.

“With the amount of people and fans here tonight it was exactly what you want. When you’re up here you want to play against the best teams - they’re certainly one of the top two.

“Duffo has clipped one up and Juke provides a great knockdown and I managed to cut inside, put it through the defenders legs and slide it under the keeper and into the corner which I was buzzing about.”
