The Clarets are preparing to embark on their first campaign in the top flight for 33 years following their recent play-off final win over Sheffield United. And Blake, who played a key role in the club's promotion, has cited the example set by Tony Pulis' team, who had few problems staving off the threat of relegation following their own rise to the top flight. "You have to take heart from teams like Stoke," said Blake. "They got written off but have done tremendously well and stayed up."
