Burnley midfielder Jeff Hendrick delighted to prove matchwinner

Burnley midfielder Jeff Hendrick was delighted with his winning goal against Everton.

Hendrick made it two goals in four games as he volleyed the Clarets to a 1-0 victory over the Toffees at a joyous Turf Moor.

“We had to dig deep," Hendrick said. “The sending off did help is a little bit and that's when we had to be patient, keep the ball and try to wear them out. We looked to set pieces and thankfully I got the goal.

“We came back after the last international break and there were four good games there for us.

“There are no easy ones and we have to take each one at a time. But we looked at them and thought we could put some vital points on the board, and we've done that. We have stepped on and put some great points on the board."
