Sam Vokes braced for survival fight with Burnley

Striker Sam Vokes admits Burnley are facing a do-or-die game against Leicester City at Turf Moor next weekend.

The 1-0 defeat at Everton on Saturday, coupled with Leicester's third successive victory, has seen Burnley drop to the bottom of the table.

They are still only two points from safety and Vokes is refusing to give up the fight, predicting plenty more drama as the battle for survival intensifies.

Vokes said: "There are going to be a lot of ups and downs between now and the end of the season but we have some big games coming up and we have to show what we did against Everton is encouraging and we can take it into the next games.

"Leicester is massive, we knew that. We have five big ones starting against Leicester next week and there is no bigger challenge."

Despite having taken only six points from their last 12 matches, defender Ben Mee insists morale is still high in the Burnley squad.

He said: "It is a bit frustrating but we didn't help ourselves. The mood is always good and it will be going into this run of games.

"It is a big game next week but it is a game of football and we are all positive in that dressing room and we are all confident we can go and win it. We have shown what we are about with the attitude we have."
