Point-Saver Taylor Hails Clarets' Character

15 August 2015

Point-saver Matt Taylor insisted the Clarets character could not be questioned after Sean Dyche’s side twice came from behind to draw with Birmingham.

After falling behind at Leeds on the opening day, Burnley went one better by twice cancelling out City’ goals through Michael Keane and Taylor’s stunning late free kick.

And Taylor, who had only been on the field two minutes, insisted the result should provide a platform for Burnley to head to Ipswich on Tuesday in confident mood.

He said: “That was one of my better strikes. I think I got a bit of a sighter with the first one that was blocked, but it was lovely to see it fly in and it’s just disappointing that we didn’t go on to win the game.

“It was an important game for us, but it wasn’t quite our day today. We made a couple of errors defensively and they scored a couple, which we regret.

“But we showed really good character to come back and get a point.”

Taylor added: “There’s no concern that we haven’t won yet.

“The games come thick and fast in the Championship and we have an opportunity to put that right at Ipswich on Tuesday in another big game.”
