Burnley defender Charlie Taylor insists the club must maintain their winning momentum when they host Fulham at the Turf Moor on Saturday.

The Clarets have won two games on the bounce in the Premier League since their 5-1 bashing at home to Everton on Boxing Day, recording wins over Huddersfield Town and West Ham United in the process.

“When you’re in the relegation zone it’s not nice to see yourself in the bottom three,” Taylor said, according to Lancashire Telegraph.

“Now when you look at the league table after a couple of wins it looks a lot better.”

“We want to keep striving for more, keep improving and keep climbing the table.”

Cairney says there have been improvements at Fulham

The team is at the bottom of the English Premier League table and they are just 13 points away from safety with seven matches to go.

“We want to get as high as we can and as far away from the danger zone as possible.”

The game against relegation rivals Fulham is considered as a crunch clash at the bottom of the table and Taylor knows the importance of the Saturday’s clash.

“It’s another huge game,” said the former Leeds United man.

“Just like the West Ham and Huddersfield games. It’s massive because we know that a win for us can lift us seven points clear of them but a loss puts them a point behind us.

“We need to take it one game at a time and get as high up that table as possible.”
