Keane Delight At Another Late Show

20 April 2016

Michael Keane was delighted after his injury time strike earned the Clarets a vital point in the top of the table clash.

The Clarets defender turned home Matthew Taylor’s corner two minutes into six added on to make it 1-1.

After another never say die display from Dyche’s men at a fever pitch Turf Moor, Keane reflected on a well-earned draw that kept Burnley in the automatic promotion spots.

“A draw was the least we deserved out of the game because our performance in the second-half.

“We keep showing the spirit of the team over and over again. We never know when we’re beaten and to be 1-0 down against a good team with a good defensive record and come back shows what we’re about.

“It was the best atmosphere I’ve played in here. It was bouncing all game, especially in the second-half when we were on top.

“Fair play to Middlesbrough they brought a lot of fans which helped the atmosphere but our fans were brilliant and if they can be like that every game as well as away then they’ll push us over the line.”

Keane’s late effort was his fifth goal of the season and followed up another crucial leveller against Brighton and Hove Albion.

And the 23-year-old drew upon the knowledge he gained from that strike to get himself in the right position for another Taylor delivery.

He added: “It was a great ball from Tayls and I got a bit lucky but I was there at the right place and right time so it was good to see it hit the back of the net.

“I knew he would do that because the goal I scored down at Brighton, he only took a few steps back before crossing.

“I got myself in a position and it’s hit me, fell off Wardy and then I don’t know whether I’ve shinned it or kicked it in but they all count and it could be a big point.

“It’s unbelievable how many last minute goals there have been recently but we’ve had a few ourselves as well.

"It's really tight up there now at the top, but that's the end everyone wants to be at so we're embracing it."
