Burnley are now one point clear of Hull City and Middlesbrough, but have played once more match than the Tigers, and two more than Boro.
Bolton boss Neil Lennon:
“What you should do is get my quotes from the last few weeks and just put it in your report.
“Individual mistakes have cost us the game again. I can’t be critical of the team because they were excellent today. I would have been disappointed with a draw, never mind losing the game. It’s tough to take at the minute.”
Lennon on the proposed takeover:
“I’m really fed up of talking about it. Dean’s worked really, really hard at this. He’s put his heart and soul into it so if anyone deserves to get it it will be him.
“Whether it goes through or not I cannot say. If it does then hopefully we can get the embargo lifted and strengthen the squad.”
Burnley manager Sean Dyche:
“We were off our performance levels and still won, and that’s what you have to do sometimes in the Championship, in all of football, but definitely in the Championship.
“Ian Holloway told me in private in the manager’s room a couple of years ago, ‘Your lads have got an unbelievably strong chin’ – and he mentions it a lot now because the mentality is so firm here.
“I appreciate it doesn’t guarantee you an outcome like that, but it gives you a whole better chance. I can imagine when I watch that back in the cold light of day with no noise, you’ll see our reaction to their goal is pretty calm. It’s ‘get the ball lads, let’s get on with it’.
“It’s gone immediately. We talk to the players a lot about it, focus, refocus, what’s the focus now? To go and grip the game.”
