STEVEN Defour believes Burnley are 'going in the right direction' after picking up a point against Huddersfield at the weekend.

The Belgian ace said the Clarets wanted to claim three points against the Terriers at Turf Moor, but in a game of few chances Defour was impressed with the visitors.

"We’ve seen why Huddersfield had a good start to the season. We wanted to get the three points at home but it’s a point on the board," the 29-year-old said.

"It was difficult on both sides. We had one good chance if Woody touches the ball good it’s probably a goal, that’s the kind of details that can decide a game, but if you look at the whole game we didn’t concede a goal so it’s not bad."

Defour was named man of the match at Turf Moor as he continues his own fine start to the season.

He was trying to keep the Clarets playing during the encounter and insisted that was their best route to goal during the game.

"I’m pleased, I’d rather take the three points but it was a good game for myself," he said. "I tried to let the team play, to get the ball and combine because when we were combing we were getting better and closer to their goal. But it wasn’t easy for both teams.

"It’s going in the right direction, we just have to keep fighting every week because the Premier League is tough and it will be tough until the end."
