Burnley striker Robbie Blake believes he can make it third time lucky in the Premier League after achieving promotion with the club closest to his heart.

Having experienced false dawns in the top-flight on two previous occasions with Bradford and Birmingham, Blake is ready to finally make an impact at the highest level with the club for whom he has made more than 200 appearances.

"It's nice to be given another chance. It was lucky for me in the play-off final and hopefully it will be third time lucky for me in the Premier League," he said.

"I'm 33 now and its great to be playing at this level at this age.

"It's fantastic to be promoted with this club.

"I've spent a lot of years here and I've got a great affection for it. It's fantastic that Burnley Football Club, who nobody expected to be in the Premier League, are there pitting their wits against the best teams in the country."
