Clarets striker staying grounded
Burnley striker Chris Wood says winning against Bournemouth would just be another step towards maintaining their top-flight status.
The Clarets go into this weekend's clash with Bournemouth buoyed by last Saturday's victory over Wolves, which pulled them five points clear of Cardiff in the final relegation spot.
Burnley defeated the Cherries 4-0 at home earlier this season and will hope to take advantage of the fact the south coast outfit have only won one of their last eight matches.
However, Wood is keen to stay grounded and says the players are doing all they can to focus on the job at hand.
Wood said: "We just take it game by game. If we win at the weekend, it puts us another step closer, if we get a point, it's another step closer.
"You want to get clear and safe as soon as possible. We can't think about what other people can do, we don't have a hand in their business. If we do the right stuff, we'll be fine."
After taking on Bournemouth, Burnley face Cardiff at Turf Moor in a game that could be crucial to both teams' survival chances, but Wood played down the significance.
He said: "We've taken points off the big four teams this season and, if we have to do it again, I'm sure we can. It's just another game. It's bigger for them I guess than us because we've got the cushion."
