Mee believes Clarets can now go on another unbeaten run

Lancashire Telegraph: Ben Mee Ben Mee

BEN Mee is confident the Clarets can hit another winning streak, but admitted returning to the top of the Championship is not a priority at such an early stage in the season.

Burnley dropped out of the automatic promotion places for the first time since September after being held to a goalless draw at home to Watford.

Although the result meant a fifth league game without a win, including four draws, Sean Dyche’s side have still lost only once in their last 14 league games.

The stalemate against his old club forced Burnley into third spot, but closed the gap on new leaders Leicester to a point.

And Mee says they are happy to stay around the top end, without the focus of being first, for now.

“It’s still early days in the season whether you’re top or not.

“We just want to keep getting those wins and those points and hopefully we’ll be somewhere round it,” said the former Manchester City stopper, who is backing Burnley to go on another lengthy unbeaten run.

“It’s a nice habit to have. It’s definitely one we can get back into. We’ve got the team and the squad that can definitely get back into it and we’re going to look forward to get on that streak again over Christmas.

“It’s still early days in the season whether you’re top or not.

“We just want to keep getting those wins and those points and hopefully we'll be somewhere round it.”

Mee felt the Clarets had enough chances to get the win against the Hornets but he was pleased with the response to only their second league defeat considering the number of changes the Clarets were forced into.

“It was a little bit strange on Saturday because we hadn’t lost a league game for such a long time and we’d set ourselves such high expectations that we were a bit disappointed.

“We wanted to come out on Tuesday and put it right,” he said.

“Obviously at home you want to go on and win the game, but they’re a good team and it shows we’ve come a long way from last season.

“If we can get a few wins together on the bounce, which I’m sure we can, we can look forward to the busy Christmas period.”
