Fox: Debut delight
Burnley new boy Danny Fox has admitted his debut against West Ham was his best day in football.
Fox made an instant impact for Burnley on his first appearance after his arrival from Celtic, creating one goal and scoring the other in a 2-1 victory over West Ham.
The talented full-back was happy with his first outing for his new club and believes he can only get better.
"That was obviously my best day in football," Fox told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph.
"A lot of people said I wouldn't play in the Premier League.
"If someone had said we'd won 2-1 I wouldn't have cared who had scored, but for it to be my debut and to score the winner it's a bit extra special. I couldn't have dreamed of it.
"I practised free-kicks for about an hour and a half on Friday with Tyrone Mears and hit the target once!
"I wasn't going to shoot to be honest but Nuge (David Nugent) just came up to me at the last minute and said go for goal because it was just outside the box.
"I think Robert Green might have thought I was going to cross it and I thought it was going over until the last second, but it just dipped into the top corner.
"I know it's only my first game and I need to become a bit more consistent, but hopefully I can answer a few critics along the way.
"A debut like that definitely makes me think that Burnley is the place for me, although I thought that anyway.
"And I think I can get better. If you look at Tyrone on the other side he's non-stop all game and I want to be a bit like that myself."
