Barnett confident of Posh points

13 September 2012

Peterborough United striker Tyrone Barnett has revealed he and his team-mates remain positive despite failing to pick up any points from their first four npower Championships games.

Darren Ferguson's men are bottom of the league having lost to Leicester City, Millwall, Leeds United and Birmingham City in their opening fixtures, making them the only point-less team in the whole of The Football League.

Following the international break, Barnett is confident of his side's chances this weekend against Burnley - a side who have picked up just three points themselves so far.

Speaking exclusively to the npower Football League podcast, the 26-year-old said: "We've had a break now so hopefully it's done us well and cleared our minds and we can go to Burnley and do well.

"We haven't changed our style of play, formation or anything like that, he [manager Darren Ferguson] is still telling us to play the same way, which is good.

"It releases the pressure a bit because we don't think we have to do something different, that's really nice."

As well as staying true to their style of play, Barnett has admitted the squad remain consistent in training, performing well.

And the former Macclesfield Town man says their slow start was slightly unexpected.

"I think we are surprised not to have got any points because we have been playing well," Barnett added, "but I don't think it has disheartened the lads too much because we're still firing in training and still have our belief that we are going to get some points and that we are a good Championship side.

"It's just about getting them first points really and I think that will give everyone a boost."
