Mike Jackson hailed his side’s spirit and togetherness as Burnley came from behind to win away from home in the Premier League for the first time at Watford.

The Clarets trailed at the interval through a James Tarkowski own goal after Juraj Kucka’s effort hit the bar and richocheted in off the centre back, with Burnley struggling to get going in the first half.

But they passed and probed in the second, and when substitute Ashley Barnes’ header was touched onto the bar by Ben Foster, it looked like it wasn’t going to be Burnley’s day.

Two goals in the last seven minutes from Jack Cork and Josh Brownhill turned the tide and cranked the pressure up on the sides around them.

And Jackson said, after collecting 10 points from 12 in interim charge: “It is a great result for us, it wasn’t our best performance.

“We didn’t start the game well enough and I think the group knew that and we had to raise it in the second half and they responded really well.

“The games are that emotionally charged at the moment that I don’t think you are going to get silky games of football, it is about finding a way of winning.

“We got that first goal and then the second goal, just mayhem.

“But that is this group and what they do. People criticise them other things but you can never criticise them for that spirit and togetherness.”
