Dyche: It's All about Mindsets

19 October 2013

SEAN Dyche insists the togetherness in the Clarets camp is carrying the club along on a crest of a wave.

Speaking after the hard-fought 1-0 win at Ipswich – the seventh straight victory in all competitions and ninth in 10 games – Dyche praised the collective efforts of his players.

And the Burney boss feels the club is now benefiting from the one-club mentality ha has been preaching since his appointment almost a year ago.

The gaffer said: “All credit to everyone.

“The players put so much effort into that performance again today and although there were quiet moments in our display, we still found the wherewithal to go and win it 1-0.

“Within in all that I am really pleased that we have turned around what could have been a negative situation.

“There were people questioning why we sold Charlie (Austin) and then about the funds and all of that, so I am so pleased. 

“The Board came out and were very honest and we came out and said we were believers in the people we work with.

“So I am just really pleased for the players and the supporters who looked beyond that. 

“Of course, results galvanise it all, but I just feel there is a positive energy and feel about the group and the idea of all noses pointing in the one direction.

“I always say that results cement all that, and if a couple don’t go our way that is when we really need to show there are no cracks and no asking questions.

“But in the meantime that is another fantastic win at a tough place to come.”

The Clarets picked up their first win at Portman Road since January 1970 thanks to Scott Arfield’s header 10 minutes from time.

And Dyche admitted he warned the players to ignore all the pre-match hype surrounding the 43-year winless streak in Suffolk.

He said: “It’s all about the mindsets. I told the players on Thursday they were going to hear all the messages about ‘we never win at Ipswich’. But it’s a load of old nonsense.

“What happened 10 years ago cannot affect a performance here today. It’s impossible, so we just go out there and go hard with everything we’ve got when the whistle blows and I am pleased to say we did that.

“Mick’s team are hard to play against here, where they have a good home record.

“I thought they edged the first half and our basics kept us in it. In the second half it calmed a bit and we looked like we were beginning to find that fluidity and in a game where most probably thought it was 
heading for a draw, Scotty popped up to win it.”

On Saturday, October 26, Burnley welcome QPR to Turf Moor for the eagerly-anticipated clash between the two table-topping teams.  

The Clarets currently find themselves in pole position in the Championship table on goal difference, thanks to some scintillating performances from the players and cheered on by the Clarets' faithful.  

And with Sean Dyche's men looking to protect their SEVEN MONTH unbeaten home record, it promises to be a day to savour.
