LIAM Boyce believes that Albion’s second-half performance in their Carabao Cup win against Burnley was one to be proud of.

Boyce levelled the score for the Brewers after Kevin Long had put Burnley ahead with a free header from a corner. The Northern Ireland international then turned provider when he slipped in Jamie Allen for the winner. 

The forward reckons the performance against the Clarets was his best in a Burton Albion shirt, and that the second-half showing was crucial to progressing to the Carabao Cup fourth round for the first time in the club’s history.

He said: “To go a goal behind to a set-piece was a bit disappointing because we knew how strong we were at set-pieces. But to give that kind of performance in the second-half, I think it was probably my best .

“I need to hold the ball up in the way that we play so that I can get the rest of the team into the game. I thought that I did that well. So, it was good to get a goal and an assist and for us to put in such a good second-half performance to win the game.
