McDonald desperate to make amends

Wayward Burnley midfielder Kevin McDonald is determined to return to the Clarets' first team and help their relegation battle.[LNB] McDonald hopes to be involved against Liverpool on Sunday after playing 90 minutes for the reserves last night when they drew with Wigan.[LNB]It was his first taste of action for 17 days after he was fined by the club for leaving the home Premier League game against Manchester City at half-time without permission.[LNB]Burnley were 5-0 down at that stage - they eventually lost 6-1 - and the young Scot was about to be substituted.[LNB]Although McDonald remained part of the squad that beat Hull and lost to Sunderland, he did not make the bench in either game.[LNB]So with manager Brian Laws looking on last night, McDonald was pleased to get a reserve match under his belt.[LNB]"Hopefully I can get back in, but we will see. It is the manager's decision so whatever happens is up to him, " he told the club website.[LNB]"If he puts me in or on the bench, it is his choice. I cannot do anything more myself. I would love to get another chance to play again and help us to stay up."
