The striker has found the net in his last seven matches in all competitions and should he do so at Ashton Gate he would equal the club-record run of eight set by Ray Pointer back in 1958/59.

Austin, 23, has already matched the feats of Burnley greats George Beel, Bob Kelly and Bert Freeman but is now looking to draw level with Pointer before setting a record of his own at Cardiff on Saturday.

"I don't want to stop here. I want to go into Tuesday night and get a goal and then again on Saturday," said Austin, who already has 16 goals for the season.

"And as long as I keep scoring and the team keeps doing well, why can't we keep pushing up the league?"
