Jeff Hendrick was a happy man after Burnley claimed all three points from the jaws of defeat in their 2-1 win over Fulham.

The Clarets kept their hopes of survival alive with the comeback win and the Irishman was just delighted to help secure a third successive Premier League victory.

Both goals were credited as own goals, however, the player was proud of the team’s work rate as he disclosed via the club’s website.

“I don’t know,” said Hendrick on his prospects of being able to reverse the decision and double his goal tally after scoring against Fulham at Craven Cottage in August.

“I haven’t seen it back. I tried to look at it on the screen when I was trotting back but once we got the goal today was about the three points.

“It was a great goal they scored right at the start and it’s hard, especially in this league. When a team goes ahead, they seem to win or get something out of the game.

“But we knew we had plenty of time and we needed to get back on the front foot and get the ball going forward and we got a few chances and luckily their defenders put it in for us.

“It gave us something to go into half-time with and to cling onto.

“The group of lads out there, whoever’s playing, can dig in and work for each other and that’s what we did.

“It is massive. Every game is massive and to keep the momentum going the way we have been playing the last few games and the results we’ve picked up. It’s good to that keep going and hopefully, we can continue that.”
