Football: Stan's Tern for Some Luck as Clarets Make a Bee-Line for Glory; Brentford 0 Burnley 3


Byline: Marc ISAACS

IT'S taken 20 years. And it took a big slice of luck - and the mega-brilliance of goalie Marlon Beresford.

But beaming Stan Ternent and his cock-a-hoop Clarets are on their way to the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Now just bring on those big boys ... preferably one of the Premiership giants of the North West.

What a show that would be to warm the hearts of the success-starved Turf Moor faithful.

But even Stan the Man would have to admit that this was no piece of cake. Two late goals - and Beresford's one-man wonder show - gave Burnley a flattering win.

It could have been a different story if the Bees had taken just one of their many chances in the second half.

"In the FA Cup you need a bit of luck from time to time and we had a few breaks here and there," admitted Ternent.

"This was a very tough game for us. Brentford were excellent, but we are still in the hat and that is the magic of the FA Cup.

"I would love to draw one of the big teams at home because it would be great financially for the club if we could attract another full house.

"I told Wally Downes after the game that his players were a credit to him and on another day lady luck might have seen them through.

"If Brentford take that performance into their league fixtures they will be a threat in their division. The difference was our finishing which was clinical."

Bees boss Downes blamed himself for the defeat, calling himself an 'idiot' after making a late substitution which he believed changed the course of the game and helped Burnley to kill the game off.

Brentford dominated the majority of play and looked as if they would grab an equaliser after Robbie Blake had fired the First Division side ahead.

But Downes believed his side would benefit from a late change when he replaced Matt Somner with Mark Peters. However, the substitution worked against him as Burnley went on to claim two late goals through Paul Cook and Glen Little.

Downes said: "The scoreline is a real choker for the players. It was so stupid of me to make the change when I did. We couldn't have put them under more pressure if we tried.

"It was a crap decision. I take full responsibility for that and it took the opportunity away from the players.

"If I cannot learn from that I must need shooting. My naivety has cost us dear. I am an idiot for doing it."

The decision helped Burnley secure their place in the last 16 for the first time since 1983. …
