Alan Irvine confident of "exciting" Burnley clash

Alan Irvine says that West Bromwich Albion will play an attacking brand of football in their match against Burnley on Sunday.

West Bromwich Albion manager Alan Irvine has said that he expects an exciting match when his team face Burnley on Sunday.

The two teams have scored just four goals between them in the Premier League this season, but Irvine is confident that his players can take inspiration from their 3-2 win against Hull City in the League Cup earlier this week.

"Everyone will look and see Burnley's three 0-0s but there were a lot of chances. And we want to go forward to try to create chances," The Mirror quotes Irvine as saying.

"So I don't think this will be a 0-0. I think it will be a game which could be quite exciting.

"If it is the same ending as Wednesday and in our favour, then I would take it now. Will it be as exciting? It would be nice if it was, but only if it is the same result."

West Brom are currently 16th in the Premier League table.
