Arfield Proud To Reach 100 Game Landmark

5 October 2015

Scott Arfield says he is proud to have reached 100 appearances in all competitions for the club after the 1-2 win over Rotherham United.

The 26-year-old Scot joined the Clarets in 2013 on a free transfer from Huddersfield, and has become an integral part of Sean Dyche’s side.

And as Burnley look to make an instant return to the Premier League, Arfield reflected on a time on ups and downs since his arrival after a brief trial.

He said: “It’s a terrific stat to be fair as I’ve done it in under three seasons and it’s a great landmark. I’m proud of that and I just want to keep going now.

“It’s a collective thing and you want to win games on an occasion like that. I tried to get a goal to mark it but it wasn’t to be and the most important thing is to get the three points.

“I was saying afterwards how it seems a long time since that trip to Cork before I joined and I got on with the boys really well and scored over there.

“There have been so many ups and downs but mostly it’s been highs and once you get a taste of that top level you want to be back up there.”

Arfield, who almost marked the occasion with a late strike that lead to the goal, added: “I think it was a great save from Camp to be fair as I think I was only about 10 yards out. That’s what the strikers need to do and Vokesy did that.

“You saw his brilliance with that left-footed strike in the first-half which was unbelievable but we’ll take them all day!”
