The centre-half felt Albion showed plenty of character to bounce back from a disallowed goal and Florin Andone’s sending off and a disallowed goal.

He said, “I thought our attitude was brilliant. We had a couple of setbacks and reacted really well to make them work hard for the win.

“I got told that the goal was disallowed for offside rather than a foul, so I’m disappointed with that, but we responded and definitely did enough to get a point.

“It knocks our momentum a bit, but we’ve shown in these last three games that we’ve got enough quality to compete in this division.”

Burn also highlighted how the side had to change their approach after the sending off, and says everyone in the squad is pulling in the same direction.

“We sat in a bit more after going down to ten men and couldn’t press as much as we would have liked, but we still had the belief to go out there and really cause them problems," he continued.

“We had multiple chances and if one of them  had gone in, it would’ve been a different game. We made them work very hard before they killed the game off at the end.

“We showed that we can come back from adversity and you’ve seen that everyone is fighting for each other. Hopefully we can get through the cup on Tuesday and then we’ve got the Manchester City game, which will be tough, but we’re really looking forward to it and hopefully we can get something.”

The former Wigan man also praised the fans for their unrelenting support throughout the game, and spoke about the brilliant atmosphere inside the stadium.

“The fans have always been very good with us, and you heard that with the way they got behind us when we had chances and corners.

“You could constantly hear the buzz around the ground, and we hope that continues.

"They appreciate the way we're playing at the moment and we know we can always rely on them."
