George Boyd was giving his own thoughts following victory over Bournemouth last Saturday and clearly his first goal of the 2016/17 campaign figured highly in his thoughts.

Hosting Eddie Howe’s side at Turf Moor, Burnley took the three two victory with goals coming from Jeff Hendrick, Stephen Ward and Boyd himself, and speaking to the Official Site in his own post game press conference not only was he pleased to get his first strike of the season, he was also pleased to become our eleventh scorer of the campaign as Burnley continue to share the goals around.

‘It`s a huge win today. We`ve had a couple of defeats, so we felt it was important to bounce back at home, where we`ve been strong all season. A two-goal cushion to see the game out would have been nice, but I felt we deserved the win and we`re showing we can score goals. Last time we didn`t score as many as we should, but we`re scoring from everywhere at the minute and it was a fantastic strike from Jeff – and we`ve got Wardy scoring too – so it`s important that everyone chips in, not just the strikers.’

As for his own strike more specifically 15 minutes from time, Boyd was pleased with the timing as he knew it deflated their hopes of staging a late comeback albeit they did get their second on the day in stoppage time.

‘It was a great ball from Andre and that`s one back to my Peterborough days, that shot across the goalkeeper! It`s right in the corner and a lovely feeling to get my first of the season. I`m off the mark now and hopefully can add more.’


‘We`re only three points off eighth now and I think we can look up not down and hopefully keep building the gap between the bottom three.’
