Brian Laws believes Burnley are on the right track to survive in the Barclays Premier League, despite another miserable away day defeat at Arsenal.
The Clarets remain just a point from safety after going down 3-1 at the Emirates but Laws feels similar efforts to the one put in in North London between now and the end of the campaign will see the Clarets safe, with key clashes against Stoke and Wolves coming up next week at Turf Moor.
"A lot of the times this season the players have folded, but against Arsenal we dug in during the second half," Laws said.
"We had some opportunities but it is all about how you take them.
"Nugent finished his very well, which will give him a lift, and that is important because you want your strikers to be scoring goals.
"However, we just snatched at a few of our others, which eventually was the difference between the sides.
"But Arsenal's second goal never killed our spirit and the heads certainly did not go down, in fact the lads were pushing hard to get another equaliser.
"I have seen two sides of them now, they have been negative but against Arsenal they were positive and we can take that into our next two games, and what two big games they are."
