Defender Andre Amougou said he was satisfied with his performance on his return to the Burnley first team in the Carling Cup this week.

The 26-year-old was recalled to the Clarets' starting line up for Tuesday's 2-1 Carling Cup win against MK Dons.

"After three or four games out of the team I really enjoyed it," Amougou told BBC Radio Lancashire.

"To come back and score is great, I performed well so I'll see what happens [regarding selection] on Saturday."

The former Reading player was making only his fourth start of the season after being dropped by manager Eddie Howe.

Amougou added: "I know I have to play well every time, but not only me because if you play well and get beat it means nothing. The most important thing is to play well and get a result."

The Cameroonian is hoping he has now done enough to earn a place in the side for Saturday's championship game against Southampton at Turf Moor.

"We know that its going to be a hard game, but we've got enough quality to beat them," said Amougou.

Meanwhile Burnley goalkeeper Brian Jensen has been ruled out of action for two weeks with a groin strain. Scans have revealed he suffered a slight tear during the 2-1 defeat at Peterborough.
