Burnley boss Vincent Kompany felt there were plenty of positives to take from side's 1-1 draw a Nottingham Forest, which was very nearly a first league win of the campaign.

Zeki Amdouni opened the scoring but the hosts hit back through Callum Hudson-Odoi's moment of magic after the break.

Lyle Foster thought he had won it late on but the goal was chalked off for a handball in the build-up after a lengthy VAR review.

Foster was then sent off in stoppage time for an elbow on Ryan Yates, with referee Robert Jones again called over to look at the pitchside monitor.

“I have a decent business brain and a decent coaching brain, but when it comes to the laws and legalities I switch off,” said Kompany.

“A handball this way and handball that way, people come in and explain to us all of the time, but I have come to a decision to trust they know what they are doing and that they have the right intentions.

“It’s not something I want to discuss too much because I can’t change it now.”

Having played Manchester City, Aston Villa and Tottenham in their opening three games, the Clarets chief is seeing an improvement.

“You have to fight for every point in this league, but there is a range of teams that we can compete with at the moment from what I have observed," he added.

“I thought today was at least even and depending what side of the fence you sit on you probably think you deserved three points.

“But, if we stay in these games, our team has got so much progress still to go and that is the exciting things for us. In these types of games we are there, but in the future there is room for much further improvement.”
