Burnley boss Brian Laws revealed patience was key to their 2-1 comeback victory over Derby at Turf Moor.

The Rams went ahead in the 19th minute thanks to Luke Moore's deflected goal but Burnley hit back when Tyrone Mears found the corner with a fine 25-yard free-kick. A winner then arrived in the 90th minute when Jack Cork glanced home a Wade Elliott cross from the right.

"Patience is certainly the apt word because we had to be," said the Clarets chief. "They wanted to allow us to have the ball at the back in the first half, very deep, and we really couldn't get going."

Laws added: "That's when we changed, we did it five minutes before half-time, so the players could assess it. The amount of possession we had was ridiculous, yet they scored against the run of play, with a hell of a deflection, and the word patience had to be used. It was important we didn't get drawn into playing long balls.

"We were certainly worthy winners and I don't think anybody can take that away from us. I don't think there's any question that we have quality in the side and if we are patient we can win games."
