OWEN Coyle believes Burnley are capable of dishing out a second successive dose of capital punishment.

The Clarets head to Charlton Athletic tomorrow full of confidence after their impressive 2-1 win at Watford in midweek.

But the manager has stressed they must beware of a backlash from Alan Pardew's men.

On the night Coyle celebrated his first success since taking charge last week, Charlton suffered their third home defeat in four games at the Valley.

"I would expect them to come out like wounded animals.

"They'll have been hurt by that defeat on their own park, and they'll be looking to bounce back," said the new Burnley boss of Charlton's 3-0 defeat to Sheffield United.

"But again, we know we're a good side and we'll give them every ounce of respect, and they've earned that, but we'll try to focus on what we can do.

"Yes, we'll be aware of the threat and the danger that they pose, but we'll try to concentrate on what we can do and try to bring that to the game and see if we can impose ourselves on it."

However, even if the Addicks come out fighting, Coyle revealed he saw enough resilience in his players in resisting much of Watford's late pressure to know they will be up to the challenge.

"I thought, from start to finish, we showed real belief in what we're trying to do," he said.

"It was a cauldron at times. You had to go and be brave and take the ball into the area and show that touch and that awareness and the passes that we did.

"We scored two very good goals, created numerous opportunities on the night and long may that continue.

"Watford are never going to make it easy for anybody, and that was borne out with the way the game went - they're always going to be dangerous up front.

"But we showed an awful lot of qualities, not just passing, but other qualities within the game - the spirit, the work-rate - and that has to continue.

"If it does, there will certainly be more enjoyable games like that if we continue to use that work ethic.

"And that's not just the 11, everyone's got a part to play."
