Warnock upbeat despite defeat

Published Add your comment

Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock remained upbeat despite watching his side throw away a two-goal lead to lose 4-2 at Burnley.

Shefki Kuqi and a Clark Carlisle own-goal put the visitors in control at Turf Moor. But Carlisle, who had a hand in both goals the home side conceded, went some way towards making amends when he bravely headed home just before the break.

The Clarets pulled level from the penalty spot through veteran Graham Alexander before Steven Thompson and Jay Rodriguez ensured the three points for the home side with late goals. Warnock said: "After the penalty went in there was only going to be one team who won it. It knocked the stuffing out of us and we've got to show more."

He added: "We're not anywhere near, we know we need surgery in the summer, but it answered a few questions for me. It's all good for me but it's disappointing for us at the moment."
