Hart admits Burnley took ‘a bit of a battering’ after 1-0 Wolves loss

Burnley’s poor start to the season continued today with Sean Dyche’s side losing 1-0 away to newly promoted Wolves.

Wolves dominated the game from start to finish and the scoreline actually flattered the Clarets, with the home side spurning a host of presentable chances.

Mexico international striker Raul Jimenez would be the match winner for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side when he stroked home from inside the box in the 61st minute, with Burnley ‘keeper Hart admitting afterward that his side had been outplayed and that the Clarets will have to work hard to get back to the levels that saw them finish in seventh place in the Premier League last season.

“We took a bit of a battering. Wolves were really on it. We have a lot more to come and a lot more to do. It is what it is so we need to look at ourselves in the mirror and keep going.” He told BBC’s MOTD2.

“There is a real buzz around the place [at Wolves]. We need to focus on us. We need to get back to the Burnley that was here before me – the team that nobody wanted to play.

“The past is the past. We have to live in this squad and move forward.

“I am in this game for team wins and team performances. I am fed up of talking to be honest. I just love the game. We have to move forward from this.

“We need to be real with each other. We have good quality and good desire. We have good spirit we just have to start translating it.”

Burnley have collected just once point in the Premier League this seaside and face an in form Bournemouth side in their next game at Turf Moor.
