Burnley boss Owen Coyle was delighted with his side's efforts in what he felt was "a massive game" for the club which ended with a 2-0 defeat of Hull. The Clarets returned to winning ways courtesy of a Graham Alexander double in what was his 100th appearance for the club. A composed penalty in the first half and then a spectacular drive from distance in the second helped the Clarets bounce back from last week's home defeat to Wigan. Coyle said: "I thought we were thoroughly deserving of our win throughout the game. We started well but Phil (Brown) will feel aggrieved because some of the big decisions went against him. "But we had numerous chances and I believe we should have had the game sewn up by half-time. With better decision making we could have come in with more than a one-goal lead but that group of players, everything I asked of them they produced again. "This was a massive game for us. It put seven points between Hull and us and we're not kidding anybody, we'll be in that group of teams. "Some of the play, passing and moving was everything I'm after."
