Last minute goalscorer and match winner Scotty Arfield has been speaking of his delight at living out a childhood dream this weekend he always wanted to score a winner and secure three points in the top flight like he did against Everton.

Speaking to the Official Site in his own post game press conference following his 90th minute winner against Ronald Koeman’s side, a number of things pleased the midfielder.

Not least the dream of a last gasp strike, but also seeing Burnley move into 14th place in the table.

It was also his first goal of the campaign and more than played its part in our third home win of the season!

‘There is still a wee boy inside you buzzes off that. No matter how old you are you’re up the park to say it’s a 90th-minute winner. When you do it when there’s 20,000 watching it’s a wee bit more important, so its lovely. It was one of the best feelings and it was important for us to get the points on the board. Johann’s strike, if that nestles in, was goal of the season, so I think I stole his thunder a wee bit. I wanted to keep it down and find that corner and thankfully I did.’

With manager Sean Dyche already talking about ‘balance’ given the late goals we’ve conceded to Hull City and Arsenal, that also wasn’t lost on Arfield, who went on to say.

‘After the Arsenal game and Snodgrass’ free-kick for Hull it was about time it comes around and we can go home smiling. We knew it was going to be difficult in the second half and it was all about staying in the game. The home form is going to be vital for us and what we’ve got here, with the fans behind us, stands us in good stead going forward.’
