Mee: 'We'll Get Our Heads Together Again'

Skipper looks to re-group after one goal enough for Swans to take the points

10 February 2018

Ben Mee is backing the Clarets to re-group and come out fighting after their winless Premier League run stretched into double figures.

A late goal from Ki Sung-Yeung was enough to give battling Swansea City a 1-0 victory at the Liberty Stadium as the Welshmen continued their survival fight.

Sean Dyche’s men now head for a warm-weather training break in Portugal next week with a blank weekend to follow as the FA Cup kicks back in.

And Mee hopes the change in routine will trigger a change in fortunes with back-to-back home games against Southampton and Everton to come back to.

“It’s hard to look at the bigger picture straight after the game,” admitted the Clarets’ skipper.

“We were disappointed with the result today and that will be on our minds for a little while.

“But we have to get it out of our system and go again and look at that bigger picture and take some confidence from that.

“Maybe a change of scene will be good for the boys and we’ll hopefully get a few of the lads back from injury.

“We’ll get our heads together again and have a good week in training and we’ll look to get going again.

“We’ll have a positive attitude, hopefully a good break we’ll look to come out all guns firing.”

The Clarets’ defeat was only their fourth away from home in the league this season and they remain seventh in the table.

But the winning touch has temporarily deserted Dyche’s troops, who couldn’t make the most of controlling the game for much of the first hour against the Swans without really threating Lukasz Fabianski’s goal.

“It was always going to be tight and I had the feeling one goal was going to win the game,” Mee told Clarets Player HD.

“We were reasonably solid for most of the game but perhaps we just couldn’t get enough going the other way.

“We felt like we were comfortable in the first half and saw most of their attacks out.

“But we need to create chances and put those away and we couldn’t really get them today.

“A couple of their subs came on and were lively and everyone wanted to impress and do well.

“They went for the win and fair play to them. But we’re disappointed to concede late on.”
