Gray: Our Focus Remains The Same

8 March 2016

Andre Gray says the Clarets will remain focused and stick to their principles after moving four points clear in top spot with a 3-2 win over Fulham.

The striker netted his 22nd goal of the season on 61 minutes to fire Burnley into the lead at Craven Cottage.

And despite being in pole position, Gray reiterated that the nature of the group means nobody is getting carried away.

He said: “It’s a massive win especially because we weren’t playing too well and it wasn’t our best game.

“We keep finding a way to win. It’s never going to be pretty football every single week but the fans are with us with that, they don’t get frustrated when a lot might.

“Our position looks better than what it is because we’ve got 10 games and a lot can change between now and then.

“We need to keep our feet on the floor and get on with the next game which is Saturday. It’s in our hands but we’re just focused on ourselves and we’ll see where it takes us.”

An early Sam Vokes header gave the Clarets a lead, but goals from Ross McCormack and Moussa Dembele saw them trail at half-time in a topsy-turvy encounter in the capital.

The Wales international striker levelled from the spot after stern words at the interval, before Gray struck the decisive blow.

Gray added: “We weren’t anywhere near what we’re capable of and we showed Fulham too much respect.

“We came out fighting. Joey has won the penalty for us and we kicked on and showed why we’ve won the last four.”
