Coyle: Clarets were brave

14 Jan 2009 - 12:56:02

Burnley manager Owen Coyle was full of praise for his players after they secured a 2-1 FA Cup third round replay win at home to Queens Park Rangers.

The Clarets set up a fourth round clash with West Brom by coming from behind to edge through thanks to a Jay Rodriguez strike in the final minute of extra-time at Turf Moor.

Coyle told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph: "I've no doubt it would have been the biggest injustice, certainly a travesty, if we hadn't got through in that cup tie.

"I thought the first half was a bit scrappy if truth be told, but we dominated and I don't think Queens Park Rangers had an effort in the first half.

"But in the second half I thought we started really well and looked better, passing the ball purposefully.

"It would have been easy at 1-0 down, with the way things have gone with recent results, to feel sorry for ourselves, but they galvanised themselves and pushed on and earned themselves a trip to West Brom in the next round."
