Coyle urges Burnley to focus

Burnley boss Owen Coyle called for an instant reaction from his players after they lost their 100 per cent home Premier League record to Wigan Athletic.

A 3-1 reverse ended a run of four straight wins on home soil, with the visit of lowly Hull City next up for the top-flight newcomers.

Coyle commented:“If you lose any game it’s disappointing.

“We’ve also lost our unbeaten home record, but there were a lot of pleasing aspects within it.

“There were big chunks of that game we controlled, we had numerous opportunities after starting the game well and scoring a terrific goal, only to concede a truly bizarre equaliser.

“We had a 20-minute period after they scored their second where our football was fantastic and which resulted in numerous chances.

“On another day we would have won that game, there’s no doubt about that.

“But we’ll take our medicine and look to bounce back, because we’ve a massive home game next week and we’ll have to make sure we’re ready for it.”
