BURNLEY'S Ashley Barnes is determined to stay in fine form after hitting a new Premier League landmark.

The strikers goal at Bournemouth to secure Saturday's 3-1 win was his 10th in the league for this season, this is the first time Barnes has struck double figures in the Premier League.

Barnes hopes there are more to come as the Clarets look to build on back-to-backs wins when they face Cardiff City at Turf Moor on Saturday as they look to secure their top flight status.

"I didn't start the season until just before Christmas time, I think," said Barnes, who has scored eight goals in 16 games since 22 December.

"I managed to keep going and it's a good achievement to get to 10 goals.

"But this doesn't stop now. We still have games to go and I need to get as many goals as possible. We're nowhere near done yet, we need to keep fighting.

"We've got a massive game next week against Cardiff and we'll get ready for that."

The Clarets' win on the south coast made it a double over the Cherries following a 4-0 victory over Eddie Howe's side last September as Sean Dyche's men moved up to 14th place in the table and eight points clear of the relegation places.

It was also a double, double for Barnes, who netted twice at Turf Moor and then scored at both ends in the return last weekend.

The striker heading in to his own net gave Bournemouth an early lead before the home side got blown away by Burnley's response.

Chris Wood headed in the equaliser from close range before Ashley Westwood put his side in the lead before the break.

And the Cherries couldn't cope with the Clarets' forward power of Barnes and Wood in tandem with the threat coming from out wide.

"It was a bad start for me, but the boys dug deep and we got the performance we needed and got the points," added Barnes.

"The lads on both sides, Hendrick and Lowton, the same as Taylor and McNeil.

"They work so well and they're putting it on a plate for us. Woody did tremendous for a goal and it was good to get another goal just to kill off the game."
