Boss Owen Coyle was disappointed that his Burnley side could not hold on to their first-half lead in the 1-1 draw at Ipswich.

The Clarets had taken the lead through Wade Elliott's 19th-minute strike, but they were pegged back by on-loan Mexican star Giovani Dos Santos with 17 minutes left to play.

"It may turn out to be an important point," Coyle said. "But it's a slight disappointment after going in front that we never got the three points."

He added: "I do think it was a fantastic game, I think any neutral would say it was two teams trying to play the game the right way."

Despite his side's marathon season - Burnley have now played 51 fixtures in all competitions - Coyle believed his team did not looked jaded after Ipswich's equaliser.

"It was a wake-up call for us," he added. "We started to push on the front foot again and had two or three chances to win."
