ANDRE Gray isn’t worried about his wait for a second Premier League strike insisting: “I know the goals will come.”

The Clarets frontman has gone 10 games without scoring after opening his top-flight account in the 2-0 win over Liverpool in August.


That is his longest run without a goal since a 13 game spell while at Luton Town between September and October 2012.

But the 25-year-old had a slow start to life at Brentford when he made the step up to the Championship, scoring just twice in his first 13 games.

But he hit 40 goals in his next 78 matches at Championship level, including 23 for Burnley.

And Gray believes he will soon find his scoring touch at the top table.

“It happened at Brentford, it took me a while to settle in the Championship and my second season was at Burnley and we got promoted to the Premier League,” said last season’s Championship top scorer.

“If I can do anything like that then it will be great.”

Gray came close to breaking his barren spell at White Hart Lane last time out but was denied by Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

But the striker isn’t one to worry too much about seeing chances come and go, and he’s confident more goals are just around the corner.

“Yeah, I’m getting closer and I could have scored at Tottenham,” he said.

“I don’t really get myself too down about that sort of stuff, I’ve come a long way in a short space of time. I know the goals will come, I’ve just got to keep doing the right of things on and off the pitch.

“Chances are going to be harder to come by. It’s difficult, it was never going to be easier, but I feel like I’m growing in every game and I’ve come a long way in the last few years so I’ve got look at it from that point of view and I’m still learning.”

While Gray didn’t find the back of the net at Spurs he did play a vital role in what he believes was Burnley’s best away performance of the season.

The Clarets led through an Ashley Barnes goal but ultimately fell to defeat, although Burnley were left cursing their luck when Moussa Sissoko was only booked for a high challenge on Stephen Ward before providing the assist for the winner seconds later.

“We got around a lot and caused them a lot of problems and I think we deserved something out of the game,” said Gray of the defeat.

“We just need a bit of luck and we’d have got something, but if we keep doing that we’ll do really well.”
