CLARETS captain Ben Mee is hoping a change of scenery can revitalise Burnley after the winless run reached 11 games in all competitions.

Burnley haven't tasted success since beating Stoke City 1-0 on December 12 and their defeat at Swansea City on Saturday made it 10 Premier League games without victory.

Although the Clarets remain seventh in the Premier League despite their slump in form Mee admitted the latest defeat would be preying on the minds of the players.

With Burnley out of the FA Cup they have a free weekend now and the squad have jetted off to Portugal for some warm-weather training, but they have done that with the winless run still ongoing.

Mee knows his side have to get their latest defeat, which came late against a Swansea side in a relegation battle, out of their system and he is hoping the spell away from the Barnfield Training Centre might do the trick.

“We were disappointed with the result and that will be on our minds for a little while," the 28-year-old said.

“But we have to get it out of our system and go again and look at that bigger picture and take some confidence from that.

“Maybe a change of scene will be good for the boys and we’ll hopefully get a few of the lads back from injury.

“We’ll get our heads together again and have a good week in training and we’ll look to get going again.

“We’ll have a positive attitude, hopefully a good break we’ll look to come out all guns firing.”

While Burnley headed to the Liberty Stadium on a poor run of form the hosts were reinvigorated under Carlos Carvalhal.

The Clarets had the better of the contest for three quarters of the game without carving out any obvious goalscoring opportunities.

And it was Carvalhal who went for broke from the bench, making attacking chances with the introduction of Andre Ayew and Tammy Abraham and his bold approach worked.

Mee admits the game was always likely to be a close affair and that one goal was likely to be enough.

“It was always going to be tight and I had the feeling one goal was going to win the game,” he said.

“We were reasonably solid for most of the game but perhaps we just couldn’t get enough going the other way."

Swansea had created very little themselves until Ki Sung-yueng found the bottom corner from 20 yards with nine minutes to go.

Mee admits Burnley were disappointed to concede so late on and added that the Clarets need to create and take better chances if they are to turn the corner.

“We felt like we were comfortable in the first half and saw most of their attacks out," he said.

“But we need to create chances and put those away and we couldn’t really get them.

“A couple of their subs came on and were lively and everyone wanted to impress and do well.

“They went for the win and fair play to them. But we’re disappointed to concede late on.”
