Wood: We've Got What it Takes

27 March 2019

Chris Wood insists the Clarets have the right characters to remain calm and ensure they remain a Premier League club next season.

Burnley have seven games left to secure a fourth straight season in the top flight, starting with the home game against Wolves this Saturday.

And Kiwi international Wood is not about to dwell on four straight defeats that have left the Clarets looking over their shoulder.

He said: “It’s going to be a tough seven-game run -in, but we have the squad and the capabilities within it to succeed and make sure we stay up.

“We know who we have to play, but that doesn’t really matter. We’ve gone to Manchester United and drawn and beaten Spurs at home, so it doesn’t matter who you have to play.

“All the teams in this league are tough and you just have to pick up the points wherever you can, so there’s no worries that we can’t pick up points against the big four.

 “However, all we can do is deal with the game in front of us. There’s no point in looking down the line.

“We have Wolves at home in the next game and that’s where we need to put it right and get some points.”

The 27-year-old striker, who has already double figures for the club for the second season running, also feels the huge experience in the Burnley dressing room is a valuable tool in the armoury.

He added: “We’re definitely one of the smallest teams in the Premier League, but that doesn’t matter because we still have fight and the right characters in the dressing room to get us to safety.

“It’s a big cliché and everyone says it, but it’s true. Everyone who has come into this club and even those who have moved on talk about this club and how great the dressing room is.

“It’s definitely one of, if not the best dressing room I’ve been in.”
