"After a sloppy start we had to show a bit of resilience, but I thought the two boys up front, Bendtner and McShefry caused them all sorts of problems," the Blues boss said after the 2-1 win at Turf Moor.

"We just missed that little cutting edge, that little bit of calmness, that little bit of what you need.

"We're young and that shows sometimes, we take the wrong options, but I thought we were always a threat and that was the difference between the two teams.

"We've gone and pushed Campbell up to the top, but I didn't really want to break up Bendnter and McSheffrey because I thought they were a threat all afternoon.

"We decided to try and win the game but to do it after ten seconds when he has come on is just one of those things."
