David Jones plays down Burnley goal drought

Burnley midfielder David Jones says that goals will come for the Clarets, having gone four games without finding the net.

David Jones believes that it is only a matter of time before goal-shy Burnley start finding the net regularly in the Premier League.

The newly-promoted Clarets have scored just once in their five Premier League outings this season - a 3-1 defeat to Chelsea in their first game.

Sean Dyche's side have softened the effects of that profligacy by keeping three successive clean sheets, and midfielder Jones refuses to dwell on their goalscoring woes.

"Obviously we're aware that we need to score goals but it's not something we're going to dwell on," he told The Lancashire Telegraph.

"We've created chances, we've been organised, we've limited chances for the opposition and there are a lot of positives to take.

"Three clean sheets on the bounce in the Premier League shows that we've got a good foundation. We've just been unfortunate."

Burnley travel to The Hawthorns to face West Bromwich Albion on Sunday evening.
