So happy for the lad. Kept plugging away when he's obviously been over looked but came on and showed his quality with that goal yesteday. Fair play to him, I hope he starts the next game because his all round game was good yesterday as well as the goal

Vydra is yet to start in the Premiership this season, and has only managed seven appearances from the bench. However, his latest display surely will give confidence to his manager Sean Dyche and hopefully he will get regular games from here on.
Burnley took a surprising lead with Ashley Westwood scoring direct from a corner after 93 seconds. Danny Ings restored parity and scored his 18th goal of the season.
However, Vydra’s stunning left-foot effort made all the difference as the Clarets now have jumped up to 10th, five points behind Sheffield United in fifth.
