Burnley's Lee Grant delighted with form improvement

Burnley goalkeeper Lee Grant believes the side are beginning to prove their doubters wrong following Saturday's 1-0 win at Millwall.

The Clarets, who won only one of their opening six league games, are now unbeaten in three matches.

"We were disappointed with the start to the season and felt we maybe deserved more," he told BBC Radio Lancashire.

"But we stuck at it, got a point at Southampton and then kicked on with two wins out of two."

Grant moved to Turf Moor from Sheffield Wednesday in July 2010, and has become a regular in the starting line-up ahead of Brian Jensen.

And the 28-year-old says every member of the squad, including recent signings Zavon Hines and Junior Stanislas, are beginning to develop an understanding of each other's game.

"We're working hard on our communication day in, day out," said the Hemel Hempstead-born keeper.

"We've got a new back five, a young back five and things don't happen overnight.

"We're working hard to try and improve from the front all the way back through to myself, but we're not going to get too carried away."
