June 29 2020

Ben Mee marked his 300th league appearance for the Clarets with a famous winner as Burnley moved up to eighth place in the Premier League – and what could be a European qualification place.

 Mee has proved himself a magnificent leader on and off the pitch in these recent trying times and the Clarets’ captain did it again with a first goal since January, 2017.

 The defender dived to head home in the 62nd minute as Sean Dyche’s men again defied the odds to move above Palace in the table with a second successive win since the league's restart.

 Down to the bare bones because of injury, the Clarets again couldn’t fill their bench.

 But magnificently they met the challenge with Mee just one of a dozen heroes as he proved a tower of strength at both ends of the pitch on a memorable night in London.

 The Clarets’ resources were stretched almost to breaking point with Jay Rodriguez and Matt Lowton added to the injured list to take the number of senior absentees post-lockdown into double figures.
