Mee: City Win Can Be Catalyst

16 March 2015

Ben Mee insists Burnley will keep their feet on the ground following their stunning victory over Manchester City.

The Clarets beat reigning champions for the second time in two attempts in their Premier League history; having also got the better of Manchester United in Burnley’s first home top-flight fixture in 33 years back in August 2009.

Fast forward less than six years and the scenario was repeated, with George Boyd taking the role of Robbie Blake in scoring a stunning, all-important goal to defeat last year’s title winners.

However, Mee insists that Burnley will not get overwhelmed by the achievement, as the focus has already been turned into next weekend’s away fixture at Southampton.

The left-back said: “Personally, it’s definitely the best result of the season and the lads worked really hard for it.

“The atmosphere was brilliant and I think it was just a special night for everyone.

“To be honest, we’ve been playing well and maybe we haven’t had the results we perhaps deserved sometimes.

“But today we performed well, got the result and hopefully this is a turning point and there are plenty more wins to come.

“We can build on this now, take a lot confidence from it and if we carry on playing like this towards the end of the season, we will hopefully get many more points.

Mee added: “There is great character in the squad and among the staff all around us.

“The lads stayed calm last year when we were around the play-offs for promotion and there’s no worry.

“We just work our socks off and hopefully we will get more positive results before the end of the season.

“We’ve taken four points off the champions and we’ve got to go to Southampton full of confidence now.

“We managed to get a win here against them, so there’s no reason why we can’t do that again.”
