Steve Cotterill heaped praise on his side following Sunday's 4-1 win at Norwich City and felt his players could have scored twice as many goals such was their dominance of the game.
Andy Gray grabbed a double, while James O'Connor and Alan Mahon were also on the score-sheet for Burnley as they moved up to third in the Championship table.
Afterwards Cotterill, who has again been linked with the managerial vacancy at West Brom, told the club's official website: "It's a good result, but we've played better than that this season and we're not going to put it down as that.
"The scoreline is good, but it could have been better. It could have been eight today if we had taken all of our chances and we're bitterly disappointed with the goal we conceded. It was a cheap goal and we are kicking ourselves for that.
"But to be fair we have done well away from home and we are very pleased with our performance today.
"Andy (Gray) is going to get all the plaudits, but we mustn't overlook Gifton Noel-Williams' contribution and it's no coincidence that Andy is scoring more goals now the weight has been taken off him.
"Steve Jones was also very unselfish and overall it was just a great team performance."
