McCann determined to help Burnley bounce back

Chris McCann wants to help Burnley bounce straight back after their relegation.

The young midfielder was fully expected to fulfil his top flight potential after the Clarets' play-off final win, but spent most of the campaign on the sidelines after a double knee injury blow.

McCann told the Lancashire Telegraph: "When you play the game for so long it becomes repetitive, but when you have a long spell out like I have it makes you want to play even more and it makes you realise what a good job you have and how lucky I am to be playing.

"I think it makes you more determined to come back and play better because I've missed being in all the action and seeing all the boys enjoying it.

"I'm just looking forward to getting back in and playing.

"And it makes me hungry to help get the club back up there."
