Striker Rouwen Hennings believes the Clarets will find success if they play to their maximum throughout the remainder of the season.

The 28-year-old marked his first appearance in the FA Cup with a goal in victory over Middlesbrough at the Riverside as the Clarets progressed to the fourth round of the competition.

The former Karlsruhe frontman, who failed to score in 12 outings in the DFB-Pokal, cancelled out Diego Fabbrini’s opener when converting Sam Vokes’s centre in first half stoppage time.

Stephen Ward’s arrowing volley in the 71st minute then secured the club’s first win on the road since October where they beat Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.

“It was a big win in the cup,” he said. “There aren’t so many games in the cup so it’s good to win this one. It was a great feeling to play in this cup and start.

“I’ve had 12 cup experiences in Germany and never scored. Today it’s my first English cup and I’ve scored. I hope I can continue it. That was the magic of the cup for me.

“It was not our best 45 minutes but it was a great ball from Vokesy and I just had a quick look to the goalkeeper and had just one touch and go for the corner.

“It’s a good time to score a goal. It’s good for the head and for the mentality. There was so much emotion in the game.

“The first half we were under pressure and it was a good time to score the equaliser. Our second half was very good, we played good football and created a lot of chances.”

Following his second goal of the campaign, backing up his strike against Cardiff City in South Wales, Hennings added: “I think we can beat everyone in this division so it’s not a shock for us. We can do it. We have to go to our limit every day, every game.

“We have to play like the second half where everybody wants the ball. It’s important for our game.

“I think we are have a very good fitness. I think that’s important for the second half of the season. We know that we can play good football but we have to show it and we have to go to our limit.”

Hennings has made just three starts in the Championship this term, his last coming in the 1-1 draw with Brighton at Turf Moor.

But now that he’s becoming accustomed to the English the game, the former German Under 21 international is hoping to push himself in to boss Sean Dyche’s plans.

“Everybody wants to start,” he said. “Andre has done a great job and he scores a lot of goals - important goals. I try to score goals when I’m on the pitch. I did it again and I hope I can continue it and play a little bit more.

“Now I’m learning about the Championship, I’ve been here for nearly five months. Our squad is very good, we have so much quality in the team and I think everybody wants to play and is good enough to play in the first XI.”
