Match-winner Stanislas wants to build consistency
MATCH-winner Junior Stanislas insists the Clarets will focus on creating consistency rather than getting carried away with thoughts of the top six.
Burnley moved up to 10th in the Championship after the winger’s third goal of the season earned them a 1-0 win over third-placed Crystal Palace.
But Stanislas stressed the importance of taking it a game at a time in the second half of the season, despite being only four points off the top six.
The former West Ham wide man says building on a winning start to 2013 in the Championship must be their immediate goal.
“To be honest we are not really thinking about that (the play-offs),” said the 23-year-old.
“We are taking every game as it comes and working hard during the week in training. Obviously as many games as we can win the higher up the league we’ll go, and we’ve got a chance for that.
“We’ve got the quality in the side to do that and we’ve been working hard.
“It’s that consistency with results.
“We’ve played quite a lot of good football at times, we’ve just got to turn that into results on a regular basis really.”
He added: “We always try to work hard in training and try to do the right things.
“I think that sometimes it is maybe about being a bit more clinical in front of goal.
“Obviously we have stopped conceding as many as we had been, but we have probably stopped scoring as many as we did as well.
“Once we get that balance right we’ll be moving in the right direction.”
