idfielder David Jones is excited about the potential of a young Burnley squad.

The 28-year-old netted his first goal for the club in the 4-0 Capital One Cup first round win at York City on Tuesday night.

And he admits the side are in confident mood ahead of the trip to Sheffield Wednesday tomorrow where the Clarets will look to stretch their unbeaten start to the campaign.

Jones has been impressed by what he has seen since arriving from Wigan Athletic on a three-year deal, and he said: “It’s a young, youthful team and very hungry I feel.

“We’ve got some experienced ones dotted about in there as well.

“We’ve got very fit lads, good quality, it’s a good footballing team.

“I think we’re best when we’re playing quick, attacking football.

“We’ve shown that in the first two games and in pre-season.

“I think we’re very well equipped.

“It’s a very difficult league so it’s hard to say where we’re going to be but I think we’ve got a good unit.

“If we can get a really good season out of various players you never know where you’re going to get to.

“I think we’ve got the makings of a very good team and I’m looking forward to the rest of the season.”

And on the trip to Hillsborough, he added: “It will be a tough game but one that we’re relishing and confident about after the result at York.

“The gaffer signalled his intentions before the game that it was a very important game for us, and nice to get the first competitive win of the season for us and take it into Saturday.”

Danny Ings looks to maintain his hot streak against Wednesday, after netting two in two games, after scoring five in four pre-season outings, and Jones has enjoyed playing alongside him: “You hear about things in football and from seeing him, I’ve always known he’s got great ability and it’s been a pleasure playing with him. Hopefully I can supply him with a few chances.

“He’s always a good option for me, he always comes off when you’re under pressure, he’s someone to bounce it to, he links up play very well. He’s scoring, looking confident and long may that continue.”
