Burnley boss Eddie Howe hailed two-goal hero Chris Eagles after watching his side progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup with a 3-1 win over Burton Albion. The former Manchester United midfielder scored a superb opener on 29 minutes and doubled his tally in the second half, with Calvin Zola pulling one back for the League Two side before Martin Paterson rounded off the scoring in injury time. "He's the type of player you can build a team around," Howe said of the 26-year-old Eagles. "There's been talk of teams coming in for him, but we definitely want to keep hold of all our better players, and he is amongst that group."
