Alexander annoyed at time out

Published Add your comment

Graham Alexander was frustrated to have lost his record of playing in every minute of Burnley's campaign after limping off at Derby on Saturday.

The 37-year-old Scot had played the full 90 minutes in every one of the Clarets' 53 games this term until he was substituted in the closing stages of a hard-fought 1-1 draw.

"It was disappointing to spoil my 100% record but with so much at stake you have to be professional," Alexander said. "I tweaked a calf muscle in the week and hadn't trained so I had to be honest and tell them when I started cramping in my legs."
