O'Driscoll Admits Rub Of The Green

Sean O'Driscoll would have been 'unhappy' if Forest's first goal on Saturday had gone against his team

Burnley manager Sean Dyche felt that the crucial opening strike of a tense game should have been disallowed for a push by Dexter Blackstock on Jason Shackell.

'Dexter has made a living out of scoring goals like that,' said O'Driscoll, admitting that he would have shared Dyche's concerns had the roles been reversed.

Dyche felt that the opening goal 'calmed' a City Ground crowd who were beginning to show their anxiety following the defeats by Ipswich and Hull.

He also admitted, however, that Burnley were struggling to find a way of hurting the Reds in attacking areas.

Having maintained their perch just outside the play-off places, the Reds now have a week to prepare for a tough trip to Brighton which kicks off a busy festive period of games with visits to Watford and Blackburn and Christmas home fixtures against Leeds and Crystal Palace.
