Leeds boss Simon Grayson hailed his side's 3-2 victory at Burnley as “a great result”.

Burnley went in at the interval with a two-goal cushion following goals from Brian Easton and Jay Rodriguez.

But Max Gradel sparked the Leeds comeback with an emphatic finish seven minutes into the second half and Luciano Becchio hauled the visitors level with his sixth goal in five matches in the 66th minute.

Captain Jonny Howson curled home a low shot following a fine run in the 85th minute to clinch a fifth away win in the league for Leeds this season and extend their unbeaten run to eight matches.

Grayson said: “We contributed to our own downfall in the first half with the mistakes we have made. We had to do the ugly side better in the second half and we knew we could be a threat still.

“We have players in the team that can score goals and an early goal put us on the front foot.

“From then on we grew from strength to strength. It's a difficult place to come and we did feel at half-time we had a good opportunity to come back into it.

“We had to make sure we had better energy levels. Our fans keep driving us forward home and away.

“We showed good quality, we got the early goal which gave us a lift and we could have scored three or four more in the second half.

“We've got players who can affect the game and obviously it's a great result against one of the best teams in the division. I'm delighted to come here and win.

“It's hard not to see the table but there are far too many games to be involved in yet.

"We have got players that are adapting to the division and a fan base that demand the best from the team.

"Over the next months we will see where that takes us.

“I'd rather have the expectancy we have at our club than teams that are happy halfway down the division.

"We are new to the division but when we have 5,000 fans the players have got to earn the right to play and give performances.”
