'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Beattie Pleased With Burnley Performance

Manager James Beattie has said he was very pleased following our showing against Burnley, even though we went down one nil on the day.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game, Beattie explained that he knew we were far from the finished article yet, but with each passing game he's seeing improvement in our fitness levels and in the manner that we are playing, so he believes the signs are good for the coming season and he's been pleased with the steady progress we have made so far over the pre season weeks.

'It's been a great week for the club having Blackburn and Burnley down here. I want to thank both managers for bringing strong sides to play against us. Against Burnley, it was hot and a bit of game management had to come in. We had to hold onto the ball better as we were working so hard to win the ball back and then giving it away cheaply.'

Beattie says that given the sides in each half that Burnley played, he feels we maybe showed them too much respect to begin with, so he wants to see us start brighter in the future and not be as tentative because he knows we are a match for anybody when we do the simple things right.

'We are not the finished article by any stretch of the imagination and there is a lot to work on but we have the core of a very good side.'

With decisions to be made on targets and trialists still, it'll be interesting to see what the next few weeks bring.
