BURNLEY defender Ben Mee was pleased to see the Clarets show their defensive strength in the win over Wolves.

Sean Dyche’s side ended a run of four straight defeats and picked up a first clean sheet in nine league games with the 2-0 win at Turf Moor on Saturday.

Conor Coady’s early own goal set the home side on their way with Dwight McNeil making sure of the points 13 minutes from time.

“They’re a good side and we didn’t take them lightly,” said Mee.

“We knew they were going to come here and have a fair bit of the ball.

“They’ve got good internationals, good experienced players, technically gifted players and it was always going to be a tough game.

“There was a good mentality out there, we felt that we were going to go on and win the game.

“We seem to come out of these games with the right results.

“Everyone worked hard for each other, it was a good defensive display.”

Mee admitted that a vital three points in the Clarets’ battle to stay in the Premier League were all that mattered on the day with the hosts right up against it at times.

“It got a little bit nervy at 1-0 but it was good to get the early goal and it was even better when the second one went in,” the 29-year-old said.

“We didn’t create as much as we would have liked but it was all about getting the win. It’s a big result and I think we played well under pressure.”
