Clarets boss calls for positivity ahead of Forest clash
Sean Dyche has urged his players to summon up the spirit shown in the last two games as he looks to end the season in style.
The Clarets return to Turf Moor today following back-to-back away draws at Blackburn Rovers and Watford.

Promotion-chasing Nottingham Forest, on the back of a seven-match unbeaten run, will provide another stern test for Dyche’s young side.
But the Burnley boss insists he and the players are ready to end the season with a bang!
He said: “We’ve changed a lot since arriving and it takes time to make it really work.
“But we’ve shown good signs and I am real focusing on the last seven games.
“I am now interested in the performances. As you know I feel we should have more points on the board and some of that has been taken out of our hands.
“All we can do is concentrate on ourselves. We are not the real deal, so by no means do we sit back because we have 50 points.
“We are ready to go again and we want to bring the energy from Watford back home and hopefully generate that positivity at Turf Moor.
“We had it en-masse at Blackburn and we got it again on Good Friday, with the brave people travelling all the way to Watford.
“That positivity is such a really, really important feeling and equally, if performances are not quite where they should be we need the fans.
“Now, of course, we want to give the fans that feeling and it is a two-way thing.
“But if we can bring that Blackburn spirit and feeling and take that into Monday then I am sure we can deliver a performance and carry the fans with us.
“That’s even more important, especially against the fancied sides, which Forest have become.”
Tickets for today’s game remain on sale until kick off. And fans are respectfully reminded that Monday is the last day for Season Ticket Early Bird renewals.
