Burnley boss insists "We fear no-one"
Sean Dyche insisted the feelgood factor has carried the Clarets to the verge of the play-off places.
Burnley made it four wins in five league games with a comprehensive 2-0 victory at Millwall, thanks to goals in each half from Sam Vokes and Danny Ings.
And after maintaining their 100 per cent win record in 2013, the Clarets boss insisted his players fear nobody.
Dyche said: “Millwall is an awkward place to come against a team that is going well with a very good manager and on an awkward pitch.
“We have managed all of that and come out with a nice clean sheet and a couple of good goals.
“The mentality we are building here is that anyone who walks on to the pitch in a Burnley shirt is ready to go and they all accept that.
“We lost Michael Duff late on Friday with a hamstring tweak and David Edgar slots in and does a great job
“It’s a squad mentality and I have just given them heaps of praise for that.
“It’s not easy travelling the length and breadth of the country when you might not get a shirt, but the players have a feel-good factor about them at the moment and we need to continue that and take it forward into next Saturday.”
Dyche, who registered his 11th win in 12 meetings with his former club, added: “The fear of losing is not something that concerns me.
“It’s the fear of not trying to win and I make that clear to the lads. The odd chance might go astray, but I’d be more concerned if we weren’t working to get those chances.
“Missing them can happen, but today we had people stepping up to the plate on so many levels and it’s a really pleasing day for everyone, especially those die-hard Burnley fans who made the effort, I respect that.”
Vokes’ 19th minute near post finish was built upon by Ings’ 57th minute header as Burnley took control at the Den.
Dyche added: “You have to find ways of winning games and today we had a fantastic balance throughout the 90 minutes.
“There was endeavour, good shape, great quality and times and just a really good feel.
“When I came here I talked about pride in the shirt. That has to be a given and it’s coming. You can see the amount of effort the players are putting in and I believe they are better than they do!
“But we are a work in progress and we don’t get carried away. We are enjoying the run we are on and we are deserving of it with our performance levels and long may it continue.”
