Burnley boss Jackson: If we beat drop it'll be due to pure team spirit; mateship

Burnley boss Mike Jackson says if they beat the drop today it'll be down to team spirit.

Burnley will find their Premier League fate out later this afternoon as Jackson guides them into their game against Newcastle.

Having been handed the job as the interim manager following Sean Dyche's sacking, Jackson said: "You always remember the group, because you've been through a lot together.

"I can remember now the teams I got promoted with. I can tell you about every one of them and the way the dynamic of the group was, how strong it was.

"You can walk past the lads in the street and speak to them in ten, 15 years because you still have that bond. It's the same again here.

"There have been injuries, the pressure of games, so to keep delivering is credit to them.

"I just see a group of mates who don't really care who they're playing against. Every game since we've been here has been called 'a must', where you've got to get something out of it.

"The lads have been delivering and the performances have been strong."
