Paterson Claims Championship's Best Striker Tag

Forgotten man Martin Paterson insists he is still one of the best strikers in the Championship.

Injury has restricted the Burnley forward to three goals and just 14 starts in the past two seasons.

But he did net 17 goals as the Clarets won promotion to the Premier League back in 2009.

And he said: ``I think if I play a year in this league I will get to a good amount of goals.

``And I still think, and saying it with the least amount of arrogance I can, I am one of the best strikers in the league.

``I think my stats show that since I have been at the club. The kind of player I am, if I play I will always give a good account of myself.''

Paterson is backing his body to stay fit now after battling back from thigh and hamstring problems.

He said: ``I did what I would say was one of the most intense rehabs that could possibly be done.''
