JEFF Hendrick may not have left Turf Moor with a goal to his name but he certainly played his part in the two strikes which secured Burnley a vital Premier League victory.

The Clarets beat Fulham 2-1 with own goals from Joe Byrom and Denis Odoi handing the home side victory after Andre Schurrle fired Claudio Ranieri's side into an early lead.

It was Hendrick's goalbound shot which cannoned off Byrom for the leveller before his cross was headed in by Odoi for what proved to be the winner.

And although the Irishman didn't add to his one goal for the season, scored at Fulham in the reverse fixture, he was pleased with the three points which moved Sean Dyche's side up to 15th.

“I wouldn’t have minded one of the goals," the Irishman told the BBC. "I just got on with it, they were own goals but I had a part to play in them.

“It’s always tough to go a goal behind but we knew we had time to settle.

“We’ve been hungry, we know we need points on the board. We put them under pressure and that was the difference."
