Burnley defender Ben Mee believes the Clarets will end their winless run soon after they showed resilience in their draw against leaders Manchester City on Saturday.

Burnley have now drawn their last two matches and remain seventh in the table, despite not winning in the league since December 12.

Defeats to Tottenham, Liverpool, Crystal Palace and Manchester United looked to have derailed their season but they have since responded under manager Sean Dyche.

Saturday’s draw at Turf Moor against the league leaders has lifted the confidence in the Burnley camp and they will now head to Swansea this week seeking an important three points.

Mee believes they can still enjoy a successful season and he is adamant their winless run can come to an end at the Liberty Stadium.

He told the Lancashire Telegraph: “It gives us a good boost. We’ve played a lot of good teams along the way.

We’re playing some teams now that we may fancy a little bit more and we’ll go into these games hoping to get some good results.

“We’ve had a few lads go down with injuries, but we’ve come out the other side and are still in a good position.”

Swansea are priced at 2.50 to win at home on Saturday, with the draw 3.00, while Burnley are priced at 3.20.

A win for Burnley could kick-start their season once again with Southampton next up at Turf Moor on February 24. They then face Everton and West Ham United before welcoming Chelsea to Turf Moor.
