STEVE Cotterill admits he is not concerned by the confusion surrounding Robbie Blake's century of league goals.

Burnley captain Blake struck what many believed to be his 100th career strike during Tuesday's 2-2 draw with Coventry City.

A special shirt was hurriedly printed up signifying the milestone ... which may well have been a little premature.

For while the Press Association - an agency that supplies statistics to national and regional newspapers - recorded it as Blake's 100th strike, other reputable bodies still have Blake one short of the magic total.

Cotterill revealed: "I have received a text message from Sky asking 'are you sure it's a hundred because we can only count 99?'

"I don't know if they are using a different abacus to us, and perhaps they want it to be 99 so that if Robbie scores against Derby, he scores his 100th goal in front of the Sky cameras!

"But whether he has scored 99 or 100, we're absolutely delighted for him and it's still a fantastic achievement."

The confusion appears to stem back to a goal Blake scored while on loan from Bradford to Nottingham Forest, with the goal being attributed to both clubs.

However, a historian at Bradford City further clouded the issue by recalling a goal Blake scored at Valley Parade that was initially credited to him, but later awarded to a team mate.

He is a good goalscorer, we know that.

He had a bit of a frustrating evening the other night, but the thing is with him, he sets his standards so high, that the least little thing that goes on upsets him a little.

He's just got to learn to live with not being the best all the time, and just get on with his game.

He's a terrific lad, he's been an excellent captain from day one, and the good thing is he's starting to get in a rich vein of scoring goals, which is always good for strikers.
