Football is a funny old game. You would think that, as Burnley fans, we would be used to the rollercoaster of emotions that comes with supporting this club.

Perhaps that’s what keeps us coming back season after season; the adrenaline of not quite knowing what is around the corner.

And this year is no different. Just 12 months ago, with six games of the season remaining, Clarets beat Leicester City at Turf Moor to all but cement qualification into the UEFA Europa League.

Fast forward a season, and that same team fell to an invigorated Foxes side, led by new manager Brendan Rodgers, leaving them firmly in a relegation battle.

It would be easy at this point to crumble. To wave the white flag and accept whatever hand of fate the football gods bestowed upon us.

But it doesn't have to be that way. Are we in a precarious position? Undoubtedly. Can we get out of it? Absolutely.

Take the game before the international break, for example.

Much has been made of the Clarets’ inability to adapt to and break down a 10 man Leicester side, following Harry Maguire’s early red card, as well as our seeming inability to defend properly.

And while fans were undoubtedly frustrated by the result, there was a determination about the second half performance that should give us hope.

The players pressed forward and got crosses into the Leicester box; with a little more finesse, the crucial goals will come.

And we should be excited by the flourishing partnership of Charlie Taylor and Dwight McNeil down that left side, which proved once again what a threat it can be.

In the end, it provided the only moment of magic in an otherwise uncomfortable game.

I was annoyed leaving the ground two weeks ago. Angry even. And many of you felt the same.

But we have seven games left to save our season. Two wins and a draw should do it, and while Wolves won’t be easy it is entirely plausible that we can beat both Bournemouth and Cardiff, and perhaps get a point against Everton.

I am not naive. I know we will need to defend better and find a ruthless edge in attack. But we have the ability.

So chin up Clarets and fill Turf Moor with noise - our boys need us. UTC...
