Vokes buoyant after opening weekend header for Burnley

Sam Vokes delighted after securing a point for Burnley against Leeds United with a late goal.

Vokes came off the bench to rescue a point for the Clarets in the opening Championship clash against Leeds at Elland Road on Saturday with an 86th-minute header and the striker was buoyed helping the relegated club to a point on the road.

Speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph, Vokes said: "It was great to get on the pitch, coming off the bench into a tough game. The tempo was fast as it normally is in the opening game, and it was nice to get the goal to equalize."
