Clarets Are Smiles Better

16 November 2012

Boss Sean Dyche looks to keep home run going

Sean Dyche wants to keep the Clarets smiling by guiding Burnley to a fourth successive home win against Charlton Athletic on Saturday.

Dyche has put a collective spring in the Clarets’ step since his appointment a fortnight ago with an unblemished record at Turf Moor.

And the Burnley boss is eager to keep the improvement going following a productive week on the training ground.

“There have been a lot of really good things going on here behind the scenes,” said Dyche.

“The supporters don’t always see that. They see games and can judge everything by that.

“Of course we can’t invite everyone down here to watch what we do, but there is some good stuff going on and the players have been very receptive to what we have offered them.

“The lads have trained very well with open minds, which I suggested was very important when I came in, so there are some really positive signs.

“You would have to ask them, but I am pretty sure they have enjoyed things. We want the place full of enthusiasm and we want smiles on people’s faces.

“We want them to enjoy their football because when you are enjoying things you tend to make sure that they go well.”

'Some good stuff going on'

Charlton come to Turf Moor on a decent run of their own with back-to-back wins for the first time since their promotion from League One last season and just one defeat in their last five games.

Away from home, the Addicks are unbeaten since mid-September but will see that record tested against a Burnley side which has won its last three home games without conceding a goal.

“I said to Pash I am going to nick his win as well!” added Dyche, who has taken six points from six at Turf Moor since taking over the reins from the caretaker-manager.

“We have had three wins and three clean sheets and the mentality has been excellent.

“I think that has been visible to the fans, which is important so they know what we are about and what we are trying to achieve.

“We are going into the game quietly confident. I always say there are 11 others out there trying to stop you doing what you want to do but three wins and three clean sheets is certainly a good platform to go and get another one.”

Dyche will give a fitness check to defender Ben Mee after he missed last Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Ipswich Town and is definitely without suspended winger Ross Wallace.

Tickets are still available for Saturday’s game, priced from £24 for adults.  Click here for full details.

Supporters can also pay at the gate, although concessions must be bought from the Turf Moor ticket office before kick-off.
