Coyle praises brave Clarets

12 Mar 2009 - 08:26:21

Burnley boss Owen Coyle hailed his side's bravery after they came from behind to breathe new life into their promotion challenge with a 4-2 victory over Crystal Palace.

Three goals in the last seven minuets at Turf Moor saw the Clarets overturn a deficit and snatch the three points needed to climb back into the play-off places.

Graham Alexander converted an 83rd minute penalty before strikes from Steven Thompson and Jay Rodriguez completed the fightback.

"It's game 49, we were 2-0 down and after everything we've done in the cup and coming off a massive game at the Emirates on Sunday, it would have been really easy to hide yourself away and just roll over," said Coyle.

"But those lads wouldn't allow it and we kept going right to the end and got back in it.

"I think when all said and done I felt so aggrieved to be 2-0 down. Two mistakes we're not getting away from that.

"Even in the build up to their second goal we should have done better and they had a bit of luck and Clarke (Carlisle) deflected the ball into his own net."
