Burnley striker Nugent pleased with run of scoring form

David Nugent is happy with his goal scoring form at Burnley.

The on-loan Portsmouth striker's sixth goal of the season cancelled out Tuncay's opener with an early second half header to earn a precious point against Stoke City.

Nugent is determined to stay on the goal trail to boost Burnley's chances of leapfrogging their relegation rivals this weekend.

"It's a tough game against Wolves but if we win we go above them, so it would be nice to do that and get out of the relegation zone," said the 24-year-old, who now has back-to-back goals for the first time this season after scoring in Saturday's 3-1 defeat at Arsenal.

"I've only started 12 games for Burnley and I've got six, so it's one in two games for me now, so I want to keep on going and score as many as I can and try to keep Burnley in the Premier League," he also told the Lancashire Telegraph.
