Overhead Amougou wants regular spot

Andre Amougou says he is happy with his return to first-team football, especially after scoring in the 89th minute to hep Burnley avoid extra-time and progress into the fourth round of the Carling Cup.

The former Reading player was recalled to the starting XI for the Claret’s 2-1 win over MK Dons, making only his fifth start of the season.

“After three or four games out of the team I really enjoyed it,” the Cameroonian told BBC Radio Lancashire.

“To come back and score is great, I performed well so I’ll see what happens on Saturday.”

The versatile defender has been left out of Eddie Howe’s team sheet in recent weeks, and is hoping that perhaps now he has done enough to secure a place for Burnley’s Npower Championship fixture with Southampton at Turf Moor on Saturday.


“I know I have to play well every time, but not only me because if you play well and get beat it means nothing. The most important thing is to play well and get a result,” the 26-year-old added.

“We know that [Southampton is] going to be a hard game, but we’ve got enough quality to beat them.”

Burnley trail the division leaders by 13 points, and have yet to tally a win at Turf Moor this season.
