Danny Ings: The feel good factor is alive at Turf Moor
TOP scorer Danny Ings insists the feelgood factor is alive and well at Turf Moor.
The Clarets go to Leeds United tomorrow boasting their best start to a season in 12 years.
But the seven-goal striker insists there is even more to come.
For he feels the team is more together than he can ever remember.
“We’re forming a great bond and it’s showing on the pitch,” said Ings. “It’s the best since I’ve been here, definitely.
“We’ve all formed a great bond with each other. There's a good feel around the place and you only know it as a player.
"It's hard for other people to understand it, but there's a certain feeling you can get in a team where you know that you're together.
"I had it a few years ago at Bournemouth when we made the play-offs and it feels the same now.
"It's the best I've felt in a team since I've been here.”
That sense of togetherness is being reflected in an impressive start to the season.
Burnley go into tomorrow’s game at Leeds United with confidence after climbing into fourth place with a comprehensive 3-0 win over Birmingham City in midweek, with Ings book-ending the scorline with his sixth and seventh goals of the season.
"There's a good feel around the club. You can go into detail about how other clubs have got more money to spend and have bigger squads but for me it's not about that and it's showing on the pitch. We're getting results and winning convincingly as well.
"Because we're so fit and so good as a team at the moment more games like that are coming thick and fast. We're strong, compact and hard to beat and everything else falls into place.
"It's irrelevant what people's opinion is out of the team, it's about what we can do on the pitch and we're showing that at the moment, and it's good.
“I think we've got enough quality in this team to compete with anyone in this league.
“But the key in this league is consistency. That's what's going to get you to the top level. If we can stay fit we've definitely got the quality on the pitch we can do that.”
But Ings insists they will not run the risk of looking too far ahead.
“You take every game as it comes. Instead of looking for goals in the future you take every game and go into that game and give it everything you can. That's what we're doing,” he said.
"It's important we carry that on and get even fitter and stronger, you don't stop at where you are, you take it on to another level than where you're at.
"When things are going well you're always on a high and the confidence that comes with it gives you the confidence to crack on and get more results.”
