ROBBIE Blake insists his goals will mean nothing unless Burnley can start turning their draws into wins.

Blake admitted the Clarets camp was again left frustrated after Tuesday's 2-2 draw with Coventry City at Turf Moor.

That was Burnley's sixth draw in seven league games and their ninth of the season - easily the highest in the Championship.

And while Steve Cotterill's men are anchored safely in mid-table following just two defeats, the Clarets skipper issued a warning that only victories will keep their season afloat.

Blake said: "It's just not happening at the moment and we are drawing far too many games.

"It's evident that we are trying to be a little too clever in front of goal and that goes for me too.

"I would rather play well than score, and after Tuesday's game the delight at scoring my 100th goal was tempered by the disappointment that we didn't win the game.

"If you are playing well, the goals will come anyway, but I was disappointed in my own performance.

"You have to be honest with yourself and I think I was rubbish to put it mildly.

"It's okay saying I scored another goal, but I'm not happy and it's something I have to put right on Friday."

Blake feels the Clarets should have been going into tomorrow night's televised home game with Derby County on the crest of a wave with victories against Ipswich Town and Coventry behind them.

And he warned the Rams they could be the victims of a backlash as Burnley set their sights on jumping into seventh place ahead of the weekend fixtures.

Blake added: "We are all gutted because we feel we should have held on for three points at Ipswich on Saturday and, if we had gone a goal up against Coventry, I feel the game would have been all over too.

"On reflection a few of the players are still down, but we have another home game now tomorrow and that it is sure be another tough game.

"But we have to regroup and kick on again and I am sure we will give a team a real stuffing one day. Hopefully it will come against Derby."

Meanwhile, Burnley defender Frank Sinclair is NOT, as previously thought, suspended for tomorrow's game.

Under the FA's accumulated booking rule Sinclair's fifth yellow card, handed down on Tuesday, triggers a one-match suspension seven days from receiving his last caution.

That means the former Leicester City stopper is now ruled out of next Tuesday's Carling Cup third round tie at Turf Moor against Aston Villa.
