James Tarkowski wants to keep making his mark at both ends after ending a near 12-month wait for a goal.
Tarkowski rammed home the Clarets’ third goal in Saturday’s 3-0 win at Watford.
And the defender hopes the trickle might become a flow after predicting an end to his drought.
“I did, but I probably say that most weeks!” admitted Tarkowski, whose previous goal was his winner against Brighton last December.
“I’ve been saying for a while I should be scoring more goals.
“I had a few last year so it’s nice to get on the scoresheet and now hopefully a few more will come.”
While Tarkowski’s late strike guaranteed the points at Vicarage Road, it was his defensive duties that were key to securing a first away win of the campaign.
The back four and goalkeeper Nick Pope shut Watford out to record a second successive clean sheet.
And that mean streak – following a run of three successive defeats in which the Clarets shipped nine goals – has paved the way for back-to-back wins ahead of successive Turf Moor dates against Crystal Palace and Manchester City.
“After the games where we had conceded quite a few goals we had a word with each other and said we needed to start building up clean sheets and performances will come with that,” added Tarkowski, whose-ever present partnership with Ben Mee has helped yield five clean sheets in 13 Premier League games so far this term.
“That’s back-to-back ones now and hopefully we can kick on and keep building from here.
“At home we’ve been really good this year. I don’t think anyone wants to come and play us right now, so we’ll look forward to those games.”
