Burnley buoyant ahead of Coventry clash

Burnley buoyant ahead of Coventry clash

Burnley came close to taking all three points off promotion favourites Birmingham City on Saturday and travel to Coventry this Tuesday in high spirits.

"I feel we're one of the best teams in the league and when we're on song, like Saturday, and we're 100 per cent committed and play at the tempo and pace that we know we're capable of we can beat anybody," said captain Steven Caldwell, quoted in the Burnley Citizen.

"We've proved it in our recent run and we can't afford to rest on our laurels.

'We need to keep pushing on and keep winning games because it's such a difficult league and there's a lot of quality sides in it this year."

Stephen Jordan returns from suspension for the visitors while fellow defender Graham Alexander is in line to make his 700th full league appearance.

The Sky Blues supporter told the official Burnley website: 'To make my 700th league start will be great and if I can do it at my hometown club it will make it all the more special.

'I was brought up in Coventry and a supporter of them in my childhood, but they were a top-flight team at that time and I wasn't deemed good enough for that standard.

'It's not a bad milestone and there are a few that keep coming round the corner when you get to this age.

'There is no secret to why I have been able to play a lot of games. I haven't had many injuries, touch wood, and hopefully it will stay that way.'

The Clarets are likely to come up against Michael Mifsud, with the Maltese star looking back to his best in recent weeks.

He netted against Wolves, to see the odds on him doing it again, check out all the markets with oddschecker by clicking here.
