Miller celebrates double joy
Wolves striker Kenny Miller

Kenny Miller had an extra reason to celebrate after steering Wolves into the fourth round of the Carling Cup at Molineux.

Miller scored the opener in Wolves' 2-0 win over Burnley one day after his partner Lorna gave birth to their first child.

Miller's 48th minute strike was his first since returning from injury after the play-off final and boss Dave Jones was full of praise for his contribution.

"Kenny's had a great 24 hours - his partner had their baby and he's got his goal as well," said Jones.

"I think Kenny showed a little bit more sharpness when he got his goal because he had been out for a long time.

I thought we played pretty well but the goals we gave away were ridiculous
Burnley boss Stan Ternent

"We were expecting him to come back and do a job but it was always going to be hard for him."

Jones was generally happy with his side's performance which extends their unbeaten run to six matches despite Michael Oakes coming to their rescue with two fine point blank saves.

Jones added: "It was a job well done overall. They had better shots on target in the first half but we got the break when we needed it and that settled us down.

"The important thing was to get through and also to give a game to some of the fringe players who have not had a chance to play for 90 minutes."

Burnley boss Stan Ternent rued his side's misfortune in front of goal and said two defensive errors marred an otherwise competent display.

"I thought we played pretty well but the goals we gave away were ridiculous," said Ternent.

"It's not good enough and we have got to do better than that.

"We had our chances and on reflection there was not a lot to choose between the sides but perhaps we are lacking that little bit of belief and we need to find that as soon as possible."
