Laws delight at leveller

Burnley boss Brian Laws hailed the never-say-die attitude of his players after the 1-1 draw at Ipswich. They looked to be heading for defeat when David Norris scored with four minutes remaining after Clarets defender David Edgar had been sent off, but Clarke Carlisle's stoppage-time goal gave the 10 men a point. Laws said: "I was probably the happier of the managers because with 10 men it was always going to be tough. "To concede in that last period was tough on the players because I thought we were in control for large portions of the game. "Having said that, neither goalkeeper really had a lot to do. There was a lot of good interplay but the final pass was a little lacking. "The players showed energy and commitment right to the end so I was delighted."
