Penny relishes Clarets chance

Back-up goalkeeper Diego Penny is relishing the chance to feature for Burnley in the absence of the injured Brian Jensen.

The 25-year-old Peru international came on as a substitute in the 3-1 defeat by Wigan Athletic last weekend, after Jensen had suffered ankle ligament damage.

Penny told the club's official website:"I always want to see my team-mates fit to play, including Brian, but in this situation I had to replace him and I did my best.

"All of my team-mates showed me their support and for me that moment was very important. I was very excited about it. It's hard to come on, but I tried to do my best.

"When I came over everyone knows I started to play, but then things changed and after that we got promoted, so I have had to be patient and keep working hard all time, the same as Brian.

"I am waiting for my chance and if I have to play against Hull City I will do my best and hopefully we will get the three points."
