Burnley striker Lukas Jutkiewicz says that he’s not feeling any added pressure in filling in for Danny Ings and Sam Vokes and that he needs a goal to get himself firing once again.
The 25-year-old joined the Clarets over the summer to aid them in their first season back in the big time after impressing in League One and the Championship with a host of teams through his career.
However, the striker is yet to find the back of the net for the newly promoted side, leading some to question his ability to replace Vokes and Ings.
Burnley’s star duo – who notched a combined 47 goals last term in the second tier – have missed the majority of the season so far, which has contributed to the club’s meagre tally of just three strikes – the lowest in the division.
However the ex-Swindon Town star says that he’s not feeling under pressure and is confident that his first goal will get him firing:
“They did fantastically last season. They were incredible together and that’s not something that I would want to shy away from.” He is quoted by the Daily Star.
“Obviously I’m just here to help the team in every way possible.
“People on the outside looking in might think it makes it more difficult, but for it’s not for me personally, no.
“Hopefully I can get a goal and the others will follow. It’s something that all strikers think about and obviously I’m no different.
“They might come in patches, I don’t know. It’s something I’m working on.”
