Ings: Derby winner was so special

This Is Lancashire: Danny Ings hits the winner Danny Ings hits the winner

DERBY hero Danny Ings says he cannot imagine scoring a more significant goal this season, after he earned Burnley their first win over Blackburn Rovers in 35 years.

The Clarets’ top scorer struck in front of the 4,500 away fans at Ewood Park six minutes after captain Jason Shackell had cancelled out Jordan Rhodes' first-half opener, and re-wrote the history books.

Matchwinner Ings said: “At this moment in time I can’t imagine scoring a more significant goal. There’s no better feeling.

“When I was walking off the pitch I was shaking with the adrenaline.

“It’s definitely up there with the best moments of my career.”

But Ings praised a team effort, particularly the impact of substitutes Ross Wallace and Ashley Barnes with Burnley scoring twice in six minutes soon after the pair came on, and with both involved in the goals.

“It’s a great feeling but I can’t take the credit for that, the lads were terrific,” said the England Under 21 international.

“Obviously the strikers get the credit for scoring the goals but I thought we defended as a team. We were fantastic.

“Going 1-0 down at a place like this the lads showed true character to get back into it. It’s a massive stadium against a rival team.

“Ross’s ball in for the first goal was fantastic, and Jason was very brave and got there in front of the keeper.

“It was the same with Barnesy, when he came on he held the ball up and helped to see the game out. He was fantastic.

“We had 4,500 fans behind us too and it was a great feeling.”

Ings’ winner – his 25th goal of the season – stretched the Clarets’ unbeaten run to 12 Championship games, and increased their lead on the second automatic promotion spots to eight points, and put a dent in rivals Rovers’ play-off hopes.

“It was all about getting the points on the table, that was the main important thing. But at the same time doing it for the fans was a great feeling as well,” added Ings.

“It’s such a good feeling when you get the fans behind you, even at a place like that at a local derby, but all you could hear was Burnley fans, which was fantastic, and it really roared us on.”

In dedicating the success to the fans – including all seven boardroom members – manager Sean Dyche admitted the derby win was as good a feeling as he had experienced in football.

“I think it is for an individual moment. I’ve experienced things over time, promotions etc. But as an individual moment then it’s got to be up there – of course as a manager, absolutely,” said the Burnley boss.

“For me, for the players, for the group I think it's a magic moment for all, particularly the fans.”

Attention now turns to Wednesday’s game at Birmingham.

Dyche added: “We’ve made history so the lads have got to enjoy it, and I’m sure we will but in a sensible way.

“We’ll have a smile on our face and get ready for Wednesday. This game’s behind us now, we’ll go into the next one with a clear mind and hopefully get another win.”

To be fair, yesterday’s game could have gone either way and should Rhodes have scored rather than hit the post then I suspect we’d have lost. They put Ings clean through for charity and he didn’t score which answers our crowing about Williamsons late tackle at t’Turf.

To their credit, I didn’t see either team try and play it out (even though we probably should have once 2-1 up) and not sure what the Rovers fans are going on about sitting back when they had all the best chances. What went wrong for them was introducing an unknown Millwall squad player, unnecessarily signed 2 days earlier, into the key point of a white hot derby

Have to say I was really disappointed in our fans response and how quiet we were after their goal. A few neutrals watching on TV have since said to me they thought we looked like a team though very average and this is what I’ve been banging on about – IF we go up we’re going to be shown up in the Prem as we know we’ve had our luck this season and with this squad (no defence other than Trippier’s attacking threat) and no midfield plus I don’t think Vokes is up to the challenge of the Prem.

We should enjoy this moment as I suspect it’s our peak. It’s also their abyss and as we only just shaded it and they’re improving it’s doubtful this will happen again soon.

That said, my sneaking suspicion is we won’t go up anyway as what yesterday showed me is neither the players or fans really believe and deep down we all know we’re not good enough and have relied on a large dose of luck this season. My money is on a late run of due misfortune, an injury or three, collapse in form and a resurgence of QPR.

Call me if you like…..I’m just a realist.

To be honest it was too easy yesterday.

We ambled about in second gear and then upped it to third for the last 20 minutes or so to ensure the win.

Blackburn need major surgery if they are to compete at the right end of the table, and this surgery is going to be hampered by the lack of money and FPP - in other words Blackburn are doomed to spend the rest of their natural lives in the Championship (If they are lucky).

We'll give you a wave from the top table where we will be dining from now on.

What a deluded tool you really are Tom... However all his predictions have proved wrong... So leave him to it in the knowledge that he is mentally ill

Well done to all the team. This puts us in a great place to push for automatic promotion and we are nearer 1st than 3rd. Lets push to be champions. We have that unbeatableness about us and we are yet to play Leicester.

Also a huge thanks to the board for guiding us here

LOL - (nice cut and paste Tom!) and if Vokes hadn't been a couple of inches offside we would have been 1 up after 8 mins and gone on to score a net full! All the fight would have gone out of Rovers and their fans but, in the end, it was more satisfying to come from a goal down!
.
Ings most significant goal will be the winner against Leicester not, nice that it was, the winner against a mid table team.

Them lot don't seem too fussed about the record going, even a bit happy about it - I overheard this while I was going back to the bus:

"Now the 35yr record has gone I guess this derby can be a bit more meaningful now. I used to feel like I was teasing a special needs kid before but now they've managed to rag one result it at least makes it feel fair to beat them. They looked very beatable even with their strongest 11 on the field so all being well we'll see them again soon and give them a good tubbing"

They did amble about and I thought I caught sight of a few of them yawning at the boredom of nothing troubling them. Bit like a stroll in the park. Had there been a bench handy I think they would have taken turns to go and have a lunch-time nap.
