No Slowing Up For Tarky

Defender determined to keep run going as Clarets take on the Toon

26 February 2019

James Tarkowski has no intention of easing up as the Clarets look to keep making Premier League history at St James’ Park.

Burnley are already on their best unbeaten run in the top flight since 1966 thanks to an eight-game undefeated streak since Boxing Day.

But with just six points separating six clubs above the league’s bottom two, Tarkowksi is determined to keep the momentum going when Sean Dyche’s men meet Newcastle United on Tyneside tonight (Tuesday).

“We have hit some good form recently,” said the defender, who once again produced a near foot-perfect display to help the Clarets beat title-chasing Tottenham last weekend.

“But we have to continue it. The job’s not done yet.

“We put ourselves in a sticky situation with the way we performed earlier in the season when we didn’t pick up enough points.

“We are on a nice run now, but we need that to continue.”

Burnley’s best run as a Premier League side will be tested against a Newcastle team hitting form themselves in a bid to maintain top-flight status.

Only one place and two points separate the sides with the Clarets looking to end the Geordies’ three-match winning home run and keep themselves ahead of Rafael Benitez’s side in the scramble for safety.

“They are all big games now, but we are going up against a team in and around us and it would be nice to go up there and get the three points,” Tarkowski told Clarets Player HD.
