Mee: Confidence Is High

12 January 2016

Ben Mee says momentum gathered at Middlesbrough in the FA Cup can be drawn up in tonight’s league clash at MK Dons.

The trip to stadiummk comes at the start of a busy week for the Clarets, who also face Brentford on Friday night.

And Mee feels that confidence is high amongst the camp as they visit a side who have won all five of their Tuesday home fixtures.

He said: “It’s nice to go into the game with a bit of momentum from the second-half performance at Middlesbrough but it’s going to be a tough game.

“It’s been a little bit frustrating away from home but we were more like ourselves on Saturday so we take a lot of confidence from that and look to go and do the same.

“They’ve got some good players and play some decent football. We’ll go there and look to counter what they’re about and pick up three points.”

Mee has recently made the switch to centre-back alongside Michael Keane, with Republic of Ireland international Stephen Ward filling his left-back spot and Matt Lowton operating on the other side.

That defence has kept three clean sheets on the bounce at home, something which the former Manchester City man is hoping to start to replicate on the road.

Mee added: “Another clean sheet tomorrow night would be very welcome. We do a lot of work on the training ground so whoever comes in knows their jobs and what the gaffer wants.

 “It’s not too much different at centre-back to left back, I can’t get forward as much as I used to but I’m enjoying playing with Keano.

“I learnt my trade at left back and I feel like that’s helped me with the amount of games I had there in making that switch.

“Wardy has come in and he’s done really well. It’s really good to have him on the outside of me as well.

“We’re performing quite well as a unit so we’ll have to see how it goes.”
