JAMES Tarkowski insists Burnley have 'more in the locker' as they bid to get their Premier League campaign back on track.

The Clarets are only being kept off the bottom of the table by pointless West Ham United after four games, with the draw at Southampton on the opening weekend the only point the Clarets have picked up.

There have been mitigating circumstances with Burnley's hectic Europa League schedule in the early weeks of the season, with fixtures on six successive Thursday nights before they fell at the final qualifying hurdle to Olympiakos.

But with Sean Dyche's side now out of Europe focus is turning entirely to the domestic campaign and climbing the table after the shaky start.

Tarkowski has spent the international break with England, but he's hoping the rest will have the squad good and he's adamant there is more to come.

"We know we've got more in our locker and obviously this break has been quite nice to get the lads recovered," the 25-year-old said.

"We've had a lot of games with a lot of travel recently. Once we're fully recovered we can start to look forward."

'Pushing the reset button' has been a motto for Burnley during the international break.

With injuries hitting Dyche's squad the European exertions have hit Burnley hard, with long trips to Istanbul and Athens in August the weekend before Premier League games.

The Turf boss hasn't been able to rotate as much as he would have liked either which has seen many of the squad pile up the minutes in the early part of the season, which is why Tarkowski thinks the first international break of the campaign may have come at a good time.

"A lot of the lads have done a lot of minutes recently so it's given them a chance to recover," he said.

"With the lads back from international duty we're back together as a group and we can go again. We can push that reset button and get going from there."

One thing is for certain under Dyche - there will be overreaction within in the camp to the sluggish start in the league.

The three successive defeats have arrived with nine goals conceded but Tarkowski has seen positive signs in the home leg against Olympiakos and against Manchester United.

"We're not really too fussed about the teams we come up against, it's more about ourselves," he said.

"I thought we performed better against United than we did against Fulham, with a good performance midweek against Olympiakos, so things are looking up.

"Results aren't going our way but the performances are better."

Burnley proved their Premier League potential with a seventh place finish last term and Tarkowski believes there is plenty of time to turn their fortunes around this season.

"Everyone has seen how good we can be. We know we haven't hit those levels yet," the centre back said.

"The games are on our side, there are still plenty coming up, so there's plenty of time to turn it around."
