HEATON’S A HAPPY KEEPER

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

TOM HEATON was a busy man last sea­son as Bris­tol City’s last line of de­fence.

But af­ter join­ing Burn­ley in the sum­mer the 27-yearold keeper says he’s seen a marked dif­fer­ence in com­mit­ment from the Clarets de­fence.

“Last sea­son was tough in terms of con­ced­ing a lot of goals,” said Heaton, whose Bris­tol City side let in 86 league goals last term.

“The dif­fer­ence be­tween that and this sea­son has been great – peo­ple head­ing, tack­ling, div­ing in front of the ball be­fore it gets to me has been fan­tas­tic.”
