Burnley striker Sam Vokes has urged his team-mates to take nothing for granted when they go to Cardiff tomorrow.

After a disappointing start to the Premier League season the Clarets raised morale at Turf Moor with a crushing 4-0 win over Bournemouth last weekend.

But Wales international Vokes insists win-less Cardiff will be desperate to improve their own fortunes with an overdue victory.

Vokes said: "You put a couple of results together now and you jump up that table. It's important that we do that.

"We can't just lay back after the Bournemouth win and think that's job done - we need to go again."

Burnley crashed out of the League Cup in midweek to League One side Burton Albion.

While Clarets boss Sean Dyche is unlikely to lose sleep over that reversal he will be intent on maintaining winning ways in the league against the struggling Bluebirds.

Burnley's 2-1 defeat at Burton did have a positive - midfielder Steven Defour featured for the first time since January.

The Belgium international has retained his place in the squad for the trip to South Wales but defender Ben Gibson is still ruled out following a hernia operation.

UEFA have fined Burnley €5,000 after objects were thrown by their fans at last month's Europa League home game against Olympiacos.
