Burnley Coyle: Kanu had minor role in Portsmouth win

Owen Coyle says it was Burnley - not Nwankwo Kanu - which helped Portsmouth to their 2-0 win on Saturday.

Burnley boss Coyle did not feel the Nigerian international was responsible for the south coast club, who failed to pay their players on time last month, taking the points.

The Scot said: "Kanu is a quality player and is obviously paid vast sums of money, but that's a different topic.

"He gave everybody a lift but I don't think he completely influenced the game. We lost concentration at the two goals and that is a disappointment for me."
