Jones Reflects On Hard Fought Fulham Win

4 November 2015

David Jones reflected on a ‘hard-fought’ victory over Fulham after Andre Gray’s double helped fire the Clarets to second in the Championship.

The midfielder’s inch-perfect cross set Gray on his way for a third consecutive brace on 18 minutes.

And Jones is pleased that relationships are starting to form throughout the team as the Clarets look to continue scintillating form that has seen them win five of their last six league games.

He said: “I thought we played really well in the first-half and deserved to be ahead. We knew there would be a reaction from Fulham in the second-half but we managed to cope in the end and get a third to give us a cushion.

“Andre brings goals, he’s a big threat and he has made a big difference since coming in. For a midfielder such as myself it gives you a different option sometimes and there are good relationships throughout the team.

“He can find space in the box and it was a great header and another good performance from him.”

Ross McCormack pulled one back for the visitors shortly after the break and Burnley had to withstand pressure before Matt Taylor’s late strike sealed the points – a victory that Jones feels was merited.

“They got a goal back fairly early in the half and they’ve scored a lot of goals recently. It’s about finding different ways to win and I think we’ve got that knack of being able to do that when we’re under a bit of pressure.

“It’s another well-fought win and we look forward to Saturday now.

“We have to go to Wolves with confidence and we don’t want to take our foot off the gas. It’ll be a tough challenge again but we’re give it our all and see where it takes us.”
