Burnley

Clarets will survive - defender

30th March 2019, 11:29 by Nick Harris

Ben Mee is confident the Burnley will avoid relegation as they prepare to face Wolves on Saturday.

Sean Dyche's men are currently 17th in the Premier League with seven matches left to play, two points above 18th-placed Cardiff, who have a game in hand and visit Turf Moor in a fortnight.

Burnley slumped to a fourth successive defeat last time out as they were beaten 2-1 at home by 10-man Leicester.

Regarding the edginess there was around the ground at that game, Mee was quoted on Burnley's official website as saying: "That's understandable.

"We are where we are and we need to stick together, and we will come through it.

"We need the support of everybody to get behind us and it's going to be a big day (on Saturday).

"It's a big game. They are in good form and we need to be on our game and as sharp as we can be to overcome it.

"The international lads have been away but the lads who've been here have had a good couple of weeks and we are ready to go.

"We want to put right what we couldn't do in the other games."
