Laws wants more from Clarets

Burnley boss Brian Laws insisted there was "still room for improvement'' despite his side comfortably overcoming Leicester in their npower Championship fixture.

Ross Wallace's deflected shot, Chris Iwelumo's 100th career goal and a penalty from Graham Alexander - who was making his 900th club career start - gave the Clarets a 3-0 win at Turf Moor.

"I thought we were a bit sloppy in that first period and had Leicester had their shooting boots on they could have gone two up," said Laws.

"There is still room for improvement and there are areas which I'm disappointed with. However, the important thing is getting a foothold on the game, getting the first goal is key, the manner in which you get it doesn't matter.

"Last season we conceded some horrendous goals from deflections and it was one of those that got us going.

"It gives a confidence to the players and we stepped up after that and were more penetrative with the ball, passed it better and moved it quicker."

Burnley sit third in the Championship after their opening three games and although there is an air of confidence at Turf Moor, Laws was quick to point out that there is plenty of work still to do.

He added: "I'm delighted with the start. Two clean sheets in three is something really solid to build from.

"It will give the players confidence, even more so the supporters and the work we have put in during pre-season is paying dividends at the moment, but there's a hell of a long way to go yet."
