Ian Poulter describes his performance on day two of the Ryder Cup at Medinah as "unbelievable" after he helps lead a late fightback for Europe against the USA.

Ian Poulter has described his late fightback on the second day of the Ryder Cup as "unbelievable after his heroics kept Europe's faint hopes alive.

A dramatic run of five successive birdies from Poulter secured a crucial point for Europe after coming from two shots down against Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson in the fourballs with Rory McIlroy.

Poulter believes that Europe can overturn a four-point deficit for only the second time in Ryder Cup history as they trail 10-6 going into the final day of competition.

He told BBC Sport: "That was just unbelievable. We had to get something going. From then on my putter warmed up nicely, having been pretty cold for the first 13 holes.

"Then it just went crazy. It was tough out there. We're in Chicago, they've had a few drinks today and they weren't making it easy for us. I will be honest, it was brutal."

The 36-year-old has taken three points at Medinah, and will help lead Europe's charge on the final day in the second singles match against Webb Simpson following last night's matchplay draw.
