Speaking ahead of the game, Clarets man Erik Pieters admitted his frustration at the lack of minutes he's had for his side so far this season, and said: “I am not happy. Simple. I want to play. I always want to play in my career and I want to play as long as possible because I am ready to play. I am healthy and fit and am feeling really well.
“But with new players coming in I want to help them. At the end of the day we here all together and we have to make sure we get the best result.
“If I need to help, for example Charlie [Taylor] do bits and pieces, then I will help Charlie. It is not Charlie's choice to play, it is the gaffer's choice, and at one point you have to accept it and help the team.”
He continued: “It never gets easier. I can accept that when you get to a certain point in your career that you say 'okay I will be good for the team, I will be there if he needs me'
“But I am feeling really good, my fitness is up, I am confident and at this point in my career I just want to play football and it will never get easier to sit on the bench.
“That moment when I realise I am sitting there in second position is not in my being. I just want to play football for as long as possible and as much as I can.”
