Mee Pleased To Keep It Clean

Skipper Ben Mee sees the positive in a point as defence keeps another clean sheet

23 September 2017

Captain Ben Mee was happy to secure another Turf Moor shut-out as Sean Dyche’s hard-to-beat side extended their unbeaten Premier League run to four matches.

The Clarets couldn’t do enough to overcome a Huddersfield Town side equally determined to avoid defeat as the sides fought a 0-0 draw.

But with Burnley showing only one defeat in a rock-solid start to the campaign, Mee was quick to see the positives as he and his defensive colleagues chalked up a second successive home clean sheet.

“I don’t think we were quite fully at it but we played some good football,” the stand-in skipper told Clarets Player HD.

“A point is a point and we are still moving up that table nicely.

“Fair play to them, they defended well and I thought their back four did really well.

“We would have preferred to win and we did push to win the game and get the three points.

“But it wasn’t to be and the next best thing is not conceding and trying to get that clean sheet.”

The result means Nick Pope has conceded just one goal in two-and-a-half games as the replacement for the injured Tom Heaton, while James Tarkowski continues to help give the Clarets a resolute look as Michael Keane’s replacement.

“We are coming together as a unit. They didn’t really test us too much today,” added Mee.

“Popey’s made a couple of saves – pretty comfortable I think – so we’re pleased with that.

“We dealt with their front line pretty well so we’re pleased with another clean sheet.

“We’ve had a good start. It’s a good building block and we’ll move on from here and look to build on it.”
