Fletcher: Burnley hope rivals don't take us seriously

Burnley chief Paul Fletcher knows they'll be the butt of plenty of jokes during the Premiership season.

Fletcher said: "We are expecting some tongue-in-cheek comments about us.

"One of our wishes is that some clubs think we are an easy three points. I hope that's what they are thinking.

"Complacency in football backfires.

"We will play on the fact of not having the best dressing rooms. They are basic but players are here to play football - not to check into a five-star hotel."
