Burnley vice-captain Graham Alexander is gearing up for his 66th game of the season after breaking the club record for the most appearances in one campaign.

Alexander, 37, has played all but 26 minutes of Burnley's 60 games this season - as well as five internationals for Scotland.

This is more than any other player in The Football League.

Alexander said: "I don't rest, I train every day, and so do the other players.

"Our manager Owen Coyle is from the same sort of fabric as me. He played well into his 40s, and knows how I feel about training and playing every day.

"I think if you rest you can take a step backwards, so you have to train as hard as you can and try to get fitter."

Right-back Alexander, who also doubles up occasionally in midfield, is one of six Burnley players who have turned out in more than 50 games this season, which included an agonising extra-time defeat by Tottenham Hotspur in the Carling Cup semi-final.

Alexander's final task at the end of an epic campaign is to lead Burnley into the Premier League.

They face Sheffield United in the Coca-Cola Championship Play-Offs Final at Wembley on Monday May 25.

Alexander said: "The whole squad keeps digging deep and finding something within themselves to play one more.

"Every training session is upbeat and competitive and we take that into games."

Clarets' goalkeeper Brian Jensen played 59 games this season.
