Arfield: We Take Nothing For Granted

3 November 2015

Scott Arfield says Burnley won’t take anything for granted despite their good recent form in the Sky Bet Championship.

The Clarets went the whole month of October unbeaten, winning four and drawing one of their five league games.

But Arfield insists the one game at a time mentality remains prominent in their thoughts ahead of the visit of in-form Fulham tonight.

“The one game at a time mentality stands us in good stead and we take nothing for granted because we know how tough this league is to get out of.

“It worked two seasons ago and it’s working every game. I don’t know if people really do that but once the Blackburn game was done, it was on to Huddersfield and then the same for tonight.

“Fulham have been on the television a few times and they move the ball very well and with the two boys up front they’ve got goals in the team.

“But it always comes back to us and with what we’ve got in the dressing room we feel we can play against anyone and pick up the three points.”

Against Huddersfield Town, Burnley were resolute in the final minutes after a late goal gave the visitors a shot in the arm.

And the Scot feels that the togetherness in the squad, that has seen them win all of their games when they’ve taken the lead, will help them moving forward.

He added: “I think we dominated large periods of the game and they gave themselves a chance in the last few minutes but overall I feel we deserved the victory.

“The character we’ve got in the dressing room means that when we go in front we’re hard to break down at times.

“Once we get that goal the togetherness always shines through as well as ability but you need to do the tough things to get the freedom to play.”
