STEVE Cook believes struggling Burnley will bounce back from a troublesome start – but admits he is eager to extend their misery for one more game.

The defender is set to be part of the Cherries squad which takes on the Clarets at Turf Moor on Saturday (3pm).

Sean Dyche’s men have picked up one point from their opening five Premier League games and are bottom of the table.

They are yet to win in 11 fixtures this season – having started their campaign in July with Europa League qualifying.

Cook told the Daily Echo: “Sometimes things go against you. When Burnley were in Europe they had a few decisions which went against them. That knocks your confidence and knocks you out of your stride.

“When that happens, it is really hard. We have had it many a time.

“When you start the season so early like they did in the Europa League, it’s very demanding and difficult. We will be hoping to take advantage of that.

“They have a very good manager and a very good squad of players. I am sure they will turn the corner eventually, but not too soon.”

Cook skippered Cherries to a 4-2 victory over Leicester last time out, helping the Dorset club to fifth in the standings.
