Dyche Not Getting Carried Away

8 November 2012

Boss still looking for more from new team

Sean Dyche is determined to build on a dream start as Burnley boss as he prepares for a first game away from Turf Moor.

Dyche has overseen successive home wins in his first two games in charge to lift his new team into the top ten of the Championship.

But the former Watford manager is not being lulled into the comfort zone as he aims to keep the Clarets climbing.

“It’s been great, ever more so when you just have had two clean sheets, scored three goals and have the top goalscorer in Europe. There is some pretty good news out there,” said Dyche.

“But I have said it many times, not many teams are, and we are certainly not, the finished article.

“We want to develop further, become more consistent, become more of a force and see where that takes us.

“We are not complacent as a staff and I want to make sure the players aren’t complacent, which I don’t think they are. They haven’t given me that impression.

“But it’s been a really, really good week for my staff and we are looking to continue that at Ipswich on Saturday.”

Ben Mee faces a fitness check

Dyche faces a fitness concern over in-form defender Ben Mee ahead of the trip to Ipswich as the Clarets chase a only a second ever win at Portman Road against the Championship’s bottom club.

But he hopes the left-back will be able to shake off a foot injury which forced him to come off during the second half of Tuesday night’s 1-0 win over Leeds, sealed by Charlie Austin’s 20th-goal of the season.

“We are pleased with Ben in the sense that it’s a knock and not a twist, which are invariably more awkward to deal with, so we are hoping that will be all right, but we will have to wait and see,” added the Clarets’ chief.
