Last Updated: 29/04/18 9:29pm
Ashley Barnes insists his Burnley team-mates are relishing the challenge of juggling Premier League football with a Europa League campaign.
The seventh-placed Clarets need just one point from their final two games to secure European football for the first time since 1967.
Burnley's ability to maintain their form into next season as well as competing in Europe has been questioned but Barnes is adamant they can rise to the challenge.
"Of course it will be difficult but it's another challenge we will be ready for," he told Goals on Sunday.
"It's going to be another tough season, we have still got two games left this year. Hopefully, we can finish on a high and come back next year ready.
"We obviously have to qualify for the group stages so it's going to be difficult but it's a challenge we look forward to.
"This has been a fantastic season. If you look at the teams above us, it's an unbelievable achievement to be behind those six teams.
"How we've competed and stay seventh, despite not winning for 10 games, shows what an achievement we've done this season."
