LIAM Boyce said Burton Albion always believed that they could overturn a one-goal deficit, as the Brewers beat Sunderland 2-1 at the Stadium of Light.

Boyce scored in added time as Albion came from behind to beat the Black Cats, ultimately relegating the hosts. Darren Bent had earlier equalised against his former club.

The Northern Ireland international said that the equaliser was crucial, and the Brewers were certain that more chances would come after they scored one.

“It was unreal scenes at the end. We went a goal down but we kept believing that if we got one goal, even though it was really late in the 85th minute, that we could create another chance. Thankfully, it fell to me and I put it in the corner.

“I that for anyone who is playing for anyone, to score a goal like that is unbelievable. You see everybody coming from the dugout and you realise what an important goal it was. Luckily, the decision went for us at the end, a few have gone against us this season. It gives us hope going into next week.”
