Eddie Howe rues Burnley's 'forgettable' League Cup exit

Burnley manager Eddie Howe

Burnley manager Eddie Howe described his side's exit from the Capital One Cup at the hands of League One outfit Swindon Town as a "forgettable" night.

The Clarets fell to a on Tuesday.

And Howe told BBC Radio Lancashire that he was particularly unhappy with the concession of three soft goals.

"The goals we conceded were poor ones - two set-plays and a giveaway just outside our box," said the Burnley boss. "It was hugely disappointing."

Trailing 2-0 at half time, Burnley were given some hope of a comeback by who netted his 10th goal of the season to halve the deficit.

But it was Paolo Di Canio's team who sealed progression to the last 16 with a late header from Troy Archibald-Henville.

"We started well and had a number of chances up until they scored," added Howe. "Goals change games and we rocked a little bit.

"We conceded a poor second goal. From there, it was pretty forgettable really."
