Burnley manager Eddie Howe is pleased to see winger Junior Stanislas adding goals to his game, already bettering last season's goals total.

The former West Ham wideman scored his second of the campaign to crown Saturday's 5-2 win over Peterborough.

Stanislas already has one more strike to his name than he did in 34 appearances last term and Howe is also satisfied with his overall progress.

"I think it was the big thing missing from him last year," said the Turf Moor boss.

"He created a number of goalscoring opportunities, had a good assist record and I felt throughout the season his game steadily improved.

"Goals for any winger is important. If we can get eight to 10 out of both wingers in the side it's certainly going to help our cause.

"It's his positioning more than anything - I think he's found himself in better areas this year, which has enabled him to score two good goal but not spectacular goals from Junior's point of view. From my point of view that won't bother me at all, it means he's in the right position."
