Cressie aims to make it count

cressie-englandAaron Cresswell  – fired up by his full England debut – is ready to use the experience for the Irons’ benefit at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.

The left back made a solid appearance against Lithuania achieving his boyhood dream and now wants to help the team “kick on again in the north west this weekend.”

And afterwards he said: “I will take this positive experience back to the club and into Burnley on Saturday. It has been tough at the start but we have had some good results of late.

“All the lads will get back together in training this week after the international break. Hopefully we will kick on again and continue pushing higher up the league.”

Cresswell almost capped his first start with a goal as he surged forward to meet a cross from Jordan Henderson.

He told the official website: “I didn’t actually see it until late, but managed to get the header. The keeper’s made a good save and I am disappointed it didn’t go in. These things happen. Hopefully I will have another chance to get one in future.”
