Arfield: Ewood Winner Is My Best Moment In Football

24 October 2015

Scott Arfield declared his matchwinner at Ewood Park as his best moment in football.

The Clarets wide man opened his account for the season with a goal of the season contender to seal a second successive win in rival territory.

The Scot beamed: “That was definitely my top moment in football and 100% that’s the best goal I’ve ever scored.

“There is so much emphasis on this game, from the moment I came here. It’s the main one for the fans, so to get the only goal in a 1-0 win was fantastic on a personal level, although the three points is the most important thing.”

Arfield, who celebrated his strike with an 80-yard sprint back towards the Burnley fans, added: “It’s just one of those things where you can’t contain yourself.


“I’ll take so much stick for that, but I don’t care. I just hope it goes on my stats!

“I genuinely didn’t know what I was doing though. I was in a bubble and was running hand-in-hand with Michael Duff for about three seconds. It’s bizarre!”
