David Jones takes on Manchester United's Di Maria

Clarets midfielder David Jones is looking to build on the club’s first point back in the Premier League.

Jones, who struck the bar in the first half against Manchester United at Turf Moor, was buoyed by the performance against the 2012/13 Premier League champions, but echoed the importance of picking up points at the same time to bolster the club’s survival hopes.

“That point will build confidence for the next game,” Jones said. “It gets us up and running and breeds confidence and belief, especially against such a big club after a difficult start.

“We’re still learning but there’s a lot of positives.

“We’re new in this league and that point on the board gives everyone a lift.

“We don’t want a pat on the back for good performances, we want to pick up the points to stay in this league.

“It’s a step in the right direction.”
