Heaton 'Points' The Way

Skipper talks England and Wolves as Clarets prepare to bounce back

20 March 2019

Tom Heaton insists the Clarets won’t look beyond their next test as they bid to arrest their winless run.

Heaton is currently away on international duty as part of the England squad bidding to get their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign off on a positive note in a double-header against the Czech Republic and Montenegro.

The Clarets’ captain – joined in Gareth Southgate’s squad by Turf Moor team-mate James Tarkowski – faced the media at St George’s Park to mark his return to the England fold after a near two-year absence.

Tom Heaton was on stand-by for last summer's World Cup Finals but last played for England in June, 2017

And the Burnley goalkeeper also addressed the Clarets’ situation just above the Premier League’s relegation places with the message that bouncing back against Wolves on Saturday-week is the only target on his mind.

“We don’t do too much worrying, to be honest. Obviously, you are aware of the situation around you,” said Heaton.

“We did go through a good spell – eight games unbeaten with five wins in there.

“That was a great run. We’ve obviously found a little tough patch in the last four games, but we won’t look any further than the next fixture.

“It’s international week at the moment but once we get back, we will get our heads on that.

“I just think it will be focusing on putting some points on the board, putting some performances in and seeing where that takes us.”
