Vokes Ready To Roll

Wales international heads to capital looking to build on Bournemouth win

28 September 2018

Sam Vokes hopes to keep the feel-good factor going as the Clarets look for a first away win of the season at Cardiff City on Sunday.

Burnley bounced off the foot of the Premier League table last weekend with a thumping 4-0 victory over Bournemouth.

And with two games to go before the next international break – at Cardiff and then at home to Huddersfield Town – Vokes is looking to get on a roll.

The Wales international said: “You put a couple of results together now and you jump up that table. It’s important that we do that.


“We can just lay back after the Bournemouth result and think that’s the job done.

“We need to build on that and go again.”

Cardiff are yet to win since securing promotion back to the top-flight last season and have lost their last three games.

But the fixture list did them no favours in pitching the Bluebirds against Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City in successive games this month.

And Vokes - who formed a new-look partnership with summer signing Matej Vydra last weekend - knows Sean Dyche’s men must maintain the levels they produced against Bournemouth to record a first win at the Cardiff City Stadium.  


“They will be looking it as well, wanting to get some points themselves,” the striker told Clarets Player HD.

“A newly-promoted side, we know what that’s like, and it’s always a tough place to go.

“I’m sure they’ll have the crowd behind them, but we’re buzzing after a great result at the weekend and we’re looking forward to it.

“It was a slow start to the season for us, results and performance-wise.

“A lot was said between us and the staff and it was important we put that performance in against Bournemouth.

“It was a big result and a strong performance and we’ll be looking to take that into the weekend.

“We reflected on the game and there were a lot of positives to take from it. If we can look to add that to our performance down at Cardiff, it will stand us in good stead.”
