Burnley veteran Lennon: Goalless streak was worrying

Burnley winger Aaron Lennon said his goal drought was starting to play on his mind.

Lennon, who joined Burnley in January, had not scored since August 2016 before he netted against Bournemouth on Saturday.

Of his goal drought, the Englishman said: "It's been preying on my mind to be honest. I should score more. I've had a few chances this season but it is great to get the goal.

"If you are playing every game you want to aim for double figures. But for me getting assists is just as important. It makes my day if the other lads score as well."
