Burnley manager Eddie Howe admitted he felt hard done by after seeing his side succumb to a one goal defeat at Doncaster.

Michael Duff’s second-half own-goal proved decisive in the npower Championship clash that neither side dominated.

The Northern Irishman’s mishap ended the Clarets’ five-match unbeaten run and saw Howe taste defeat for the first time as manager of the Lancashire outfit.

And the former Bournemouth boss was clearly frustrated by the result.

“I think probably in the second half I don’t really remember Granty (goalkeeper Lee Grant) having anything to do apart from picking the ball out of the back of the net,” he said after the game.

Doncaster headed into the clash on a four-game losing streak - during which they conceded 13 goals - and manager Sean O’Driscoll was pleased to see his side get the rub of the green.

“I thought it was a tight game and I said to the players at half-time,” he said.
