BURNLEY record signing Chris Wood believes the Clarets can build on their fine start to the season when the Premier League resumes in a two weeks.

The £15m man struck a late equaliser to earn Burnley a 1-1 draw at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, coming off the bench to score on his first top flight appearance for Sean Dyche's side.

Wood, who has now linked up with the New Zealand squad for their World Cup double header against the Solomon Islands, levelled with a crisp finish in stoppage time at Wembley.

His goal means that Burnley have taken four points from their first two away games against last season's Premier League top two.

And Wood, 25, wants the Clarets to use their strong start - they are in 10th place after three games - as a building block to further success this term.

He said: "That’s four points from two away games. That’s huge and something to build on and we will look to go again after the international break.

“I think we showed last year we’re definitely not a soft touch and hopefully we are going to be looking up and doing what we can to progress from last season and keep fighting."

The Turf frontman felt Burnley's never say die attitude helped them earn a point against Mauricio Pochettino's men, a trait Wood can already see in his new teammates despite having only joined a week ago.

"I think that sums up the team," said the striker of the last gasp leveller.

“We will work right up to the 95th-minute. We won’t give up.

“The boys showed that last year and in years passed and will continue to do that."

The frontman, who finished as the Championship's top scorer for Leeds United last season, admitted he was delighted to have got up and running so soon for his new club.

He added: "Everybody looks at you as a striker when you come into a club to get off the mark and get up and running and it’s nice to have done that.

“Thankfully it hasn’t taken a long time but it’s extra special because we got a good point away from home and a point, I think, the lads deserved after the fighting spirit we showed.

“It was an unbelievable ball from Robbie (Brady). He split the defence with an inch-perfect pass.

“I didn’t have to check my stride or anything. It was right on the button and thankfully it nestled in the bottom corner.”
