Burnley captain Ben Mee has labeled their 1-0 victory over Brighton as a “big step forward” saying the win had lifted their spirit after a winless win.

Saturday’s win was Burnley’s first victory in nine Premier League matches, and they are now just two points outside the relegation zone.

And Mee is counting on the confidence that comes from winning games to help the team in their upcoming games.

“The lads put in a lot of effort and when you haven’t won for a while, its good to get over that line and get the three points,” Mee told the club’s website.

“It was nice to get back to it; everyone dug in and it got a little bit nervy towards the end, but we stuck it out and it’s nice to get over that line.

“We felt we could have made it a little bit easier for ourselves and there are things to improve on, so we’re not getting ahead of ourselves. But hopefully, it brings on that confidence and bit more belief that we can go on and win more games.

“Looking up the table we want to keep progressing and getting points.

“The win was a big step forward and moving forward we want to keep the confidence and get more points.

“The whole feeling around the place in the past week has been fantastic and the fans are right with us. It’s been a good week, so hopefully, we can take that into the coming weeks.”
