Brian Jensen has been a revelation for Burnley this season and is hoping his fine form will pay dividends.

The Danish keeper has been one of the Clarets' most consistent performers so far, providing a reassuring presence between the sticks.

His eye-catching performances have played a crucial role in Burnley's climb into the Championship play-off places, as well as their progression to the semi-finals of the Carling Cup.

Jensen admits the campaign could not have gone much better so far, but he is refusing to rest on his laurels as Turf Moor is brimming with international standard shot-stoppers.

"It has been hard work competing with three international keepers, but it has paid off in the end," he told the Sunday Times.

"I've still got Diego (Penny) and Gabor (Kiraly) breathing down my neck, so I need to keep my form going."


Burnley are currently preparing for the first leg of their Carling Cup last four showdown with Tottenham on Tuesday.

Having already seen off Fulham, Chelsea and Arsenal in the competition so far, Jensen is hoping the good fortune which has favoured the Clarets in the competition to this point can carry them all the way to Wembley.

"We've had a bit of luck but we've also played well and it has given the whole team a massive boost, which has helped us in the league," he added.

"We are playing a Premier League side with one of the best managers around, who will fire them up.

"We need to go down there (White Hart Lane), play well, have a bit of luck because we know there will be times when we're under the cosh, and bring them back here with a result good enough to leave us in with a shout.

"If we can beat Fulham, Arsenal and Chelsea, why not? We'll go there with a smile on our faces and be as positive as we can."
