Keane Hails Best Moment In Football

2 April 2016

Michael Keane hailed ‘his best moment in football’ after his late header rescued a point for the Clarets in a 2-2 draw at Brighton.

The defender saw a header from a corner that clearly crossed the line not count on 88 minutes, before heading home from Taylor’s delivery again in stoppage time.

And having felt the injustice of having his goal chalked off moments earlier, Keane was delighted to earn a vital point against fellow promotion chasers.

He said: “It’s an incredible feeling, it’s probably the best feeling I’ve had in football. To score in front of our fans in the last minute after having the first one not count.

“When I headed it I couldn’t see whether it was over the line but one of their players Liam Rosenior told me it was.

“You could tell by the reaction from the gaffer and I think someone from Sky told them so I felt a bit more determined and like we deserved.

“I knew Tayls (Matt Taylor) would put a great ball in and thankfully I was in the right position.”

Keane’s fourth goal of the season kept the Clarets three points clear at the summit of the Sky Bet Championship and extended the unbeaten run to 16.

After a point at the Amex Stadium, where Brighton had lost just once in their last 12 games, the former Manchester United man reflected on how it might have even better with goal-line technology.

“That never say die attitude stands us in good stead and we’ve been grinding results out. We never know when we’re beaten and we’ve got great experience in the squad.

“If we’d have come away with nothing today then it would be a massive talking point, as it still is because we could have gone on and got another.

“I think they should get it because when you score a goal obviously it can change everything in a game.

“It’s a tough job and if they had a bit of help then it would be a lot better and a bit more fair so it might be something they look into.”
