Michael Keane celebrated yesterday’s automatic promotion clinching win against Queens Park Rangers and described it as his best day in football so far.

With Sam Vokes’ goal breaking the deadlock in the game and being enough to return all three points to secure one of the two automatic spots in the Championship, and take us one step closer to the title itself, speaking to the Official Site in his own post game press interviews, he explained.

‘It`s the best day I`ve had in football and it`s not yet sunk in yet, and I don`t think it will do for the next few weeks. It`s a special feeling! We have had to wait a long time since our last fixture and results have gone our way since, so we knew what we had to do and we managed to get over the line so it`s a special day.’

Victory over Queens Park Rangers also extended Burnley’s unbeaten run to a massive 22 league fixtures, but Michael is very Keane to make that 23 with another win against Charlton to tie up the Championship title now.

‘Our record speaks for itself. It`s hard enough to go five games unbeaten in this league never mind 22, and we want to extend that run this weekend and go one better and win the league. We said as a squad after Boxing Day that we all wanted to be champions and that has firmly been in everyone`s minds since then. We have completed one target, which we will enjoy for a couple of days, and then we will get back on that training pitch and get ready to again on Saturday for one last time.’

With Keane contributing two vital points of late with his own stoppage time equalisers, he was also quick to say the success was down to the whole group of players at the club.

‘Looking back, those two goals have been vital, but every goal from all of the players throughout the season have contributed to this. Even the players who haven`t played as many minutes as they would have liked on the bench, they have also played a big part in our promotion and it`s the whole squad and their spirit that has helped achieve this. To get out of the Championship at the first attempt is an unbelievable achievement and it`s a credit to all the staff and players.’
