Jensen keeps believing

Published Add your comment

Burnley goalkeeper Brian Jensen is convinced the club can pick up the pieces following the latest shattering "self-inflicted" defeat.

The Clarets suffered only their third home loss of the season on Saturday, going down 2-1 to rock-bottom Portsmouth. Captain Clarke Carlisle gave away two second half penalties, the first of which the Danish stopper saved from Jamie O'Hara, before being beaten from 12 yards by Hassan Yebda.

"I was hoping my first would have given us at least a point, but sadly it didn't, and now we just have to crack on," said Jensen.

"In the end the defeat was self inflicted, but I don't want to comment on that.

"We know we're in trouble. We just have to turn it around, and away from home. It's a must, and it's what we have to now work on.

"As long as we stay together, stay strong, then we will do our very best to stay in this league.

"I'm sure we will bounce back, get even stronger, get some points away from home as well.

"The table is still tight, and yes we're still down there where we don't want to be, so we can only look up.

"We've still a good chance. We've six home games remaining, and a lot of points to play for."
