Howe targets defensive improvement
Eddie Howe admits Burnley will need to shore up defensively if they are to threaten at the right end of the Championship.
The Clarets headed into the international break with the worst defensive record in the second tier - having conceded 22 goals in 10 games, including 12 in their last four.
Howe's side lost out in a seven-goal thriller at Crystal Palace on Saturday and the manager admitted choice words were said in the visitors' dressing room.
"Words were said on all parts. They are a great bunch and they are hurting at the moment, just like we all are," said Howe.
"We've just got to put it right. Sometimes you have to let players know when you expect of them and at the minute, individually and collectively, we are not where we want to be."
