CRAIG Dawson admitted scoring in the Premier League on his 27th birthday was ‘special’.
The defender’s powerful header in the 78th minute put the Baggies 2-1 up at Turf Moor – his fourth goal in the last 10 league games.
Dawson, who also notched his first Premier League goal in the 4-0 win over the Clarets at The Hawthorns back in 2014, was delighted to be able to enjoy a double celebration despite the hosts’ late equaliser in Lancashire.
He said: “I was really happy to score on my birthday.
“Scoring at any time in the Premier League is always good but to grab one on my birthday was special.
“It’s a shame that it didn’t turn out to be the winning goal but that’s how it goes sometimes.
“I’m happy to have found the net a few times over the last few months.
“Scoring goals is a great feeling and hopefully I can add another one or two before the end of the campaign.
The Baggies No.25 also praised the belief within the group after a run of five Premier League games without a goal prior to the trip to Turf Moor.
“It’s a tough place to come.
“Burnley have done really well at home this season so in that sense it’s a good point for us.
“Obviously though we were disappointed with the two goals that we conceded.
“We have always believed that we would score, I just don’t think that we have had the luck in front of goal in recent weeks.
“We got two today so hopefully we can kick on and get a few more before the end of the season.”
