Draw leaves Coyle ecstatic

Burnley manager Owen Coyle was a happy man after seeing his side earn their first away point of the season from a thrilling 3-3 draw at Manchester City.

The Clarets led 2-0 at Eastlands before the home side roared backed to take the lead, only for Kevin McDonald to pop up three minutes from time to send the travelling fans wild.

Coyle admitted afterwards:"It is a monkey off our backs.

"Funnily enough, I felt very comfortable at 2-0. I would have loved to get to half-time in that position.

"We are on a learning curve and if we had been an experienced Premier League team we would have seen it off.

"I was prepared to lose 4-2 if it gave us a chance of drawing.

"There is an unbelievable spirit in our dressing room. We are the smallest town to be in the Premier League, but we are determined to give this a real fight.

"Getting into the Premier League was an unbelievable achievement. Staying in it would exceed that by some distance."
