Coyle: We would have won on another day

Burnley manager Owen Coyle felt his side could take away many positives despite losing their 100% home record with a 3-1 defeat to Wigan at Turf Moor. After Steven Fletcher's fourth-minute opener, Hugo Rodallega's reply was hardly clinical, tapping into an empty net as goalkeeper Brian Jensen twisted his ankle as he came to collect a cross from Wigan captain Mario Melchiot. Rodallega's second was superb, however, cracking a low right-footed drive in off a post before Emmerson Boyce sidefooted the away side's third. But an upbeat Coyle said: "If you lose any game it's disappointing. We've also lost our unbeaten home record, but there were a lot of pleasing aspects within it. "There were big chunks of that game we controlled, we had numerous opportunities after starting the game well and scoring a terrific goal, only to concede a truly bizarre equaliser. "We had a 20 minute period after they scored their second where our football was fantastic which resulted in numerous chances. On another day we would have won that game. There's no doubt about that."
