Mee: The Brighton Win Was a Big Step Forward

10 December 2018

Burnley captain Ben Mee described the weekend win over Brighton as a big step forward.

Mee was pleased to see the Clarets secure the first win since September thanks to centre half partner James Tarkowski’s solitary goal.

And Mee believes the confidence and belief within the squad can help the team going forward in the upcoming weeks.

He said: “The lads put in a lot of effort and when you haven’t won for a while, its good to get over that line and get the three points.

“It was nice to get back to it; everyone dug in and it got a little bit nervy towards the end, but we stuck it out and its nice to get over that line.

“We felt we could have made it a little bit easier for ourselves and there are things to improve on, so we’re not getting ahead of ourselves. But hopefully it brings on that confidence and bit more belief that we can go on and win more games.”

The three points hoisted Sean Dyche’s side move up to 17th in the Premier League table, ahead of two testing trips to north London in the coming fortnight.

Burnley travel to Wembley this weekend, to face Tottenham Hotspur, where the Clarets claimed a point last season through Chris Wood’s 86th minute strike in a 1-1 draw.

And despite Spurs winning seven of their 10 home games this season in all competitions, Mee has the confidence that the Clarets can come home with something again on Saturday.

“Looking up the table we want to keep progressing and getting points,” he added.

“The win was a big step forward and moving forward we want to keep the confidence and get more points.

“The whole feeling around the place in the past week has been fantastic and the fans are right with us. It’s been a good week, so hopefully we can take that into the coming weeks.”
