Burnley won’t take their foot off the gas thinking the job of Premier League survival is done, according to defender Ben Mee.

The Clarets took a huge step towards securing Premier League football at Turf Moor for a fourth consecutive season with a 3-1 win at Bournemouth on Saturday.

That moved Sean Dyche’s side eight clear of Cardiff City who occupy the final relegation spot, with Huddersfield Town and Fulham already confirmed as playing Championship football next season.

The win, courtesy of goals from Chris Wood, Ashley Westwood and Ashley Barnes, followed up the 2-0 home success against Wolves to make it six points from a possible six since the international break.

Though having lost four games in a row prior to that, Mee knows how quickly things can change, but felt there was a confidence about the group ahead of the weekend’s game.

He said: “We’ve got a good mentality within the group, we’ve had that for a good few years now, and we won’t take our foot off the gas.”

“There was a good feeling about us today, coming off the back of a good win.

“It was a sloppy goal to concede but I felt like we’d get chances.

“We stuck to our gameplan and with that positive mindset that we had going in to the game we just carried that on and didn’t let the goal affect us.”

Burnley were behind after just four minutes when Ashley Barnes put in to his own net.

But the next 86 minutes belonged to the visitors who quickly responded to take the lead before the halfway point of the first half.

“It was a really good reaction. There was a good feel among the group before the game, a good energy, but it was disappointed to fall behind so early.

“There was just a feeling that we’d get back in the game, we cracked on after that and I thought we performed really well and played the game really well against a team we felt we could get after,” Mee said.

“We made it comfortable for them and we had a gameplan to come here and do that. I think we got in behind really well and caused them a few problems.

“We were squeezing high up the pitch and we did really well to do that in the first half after going 1-0 down.”

Despite a dip in form of late, Bournemouth hadn’t lost to a team outside of the top six at the Vitality Stadium all season.

Burnley changed that with their victory which was built on a strong work ethic and excellent defensive display.

No team outside of the top six has scored more goals at home than Bournemouth, but Mee said: “We felt reasonably comfortable and limited them to a few chances.

“They’re a side that creates a lot at home. We’ll take that.

“They’ve got some really good quality players, lively players and quick players so they’re going to create chances.

“We kept them down to a minimum and we’re really pleased with that.”
