Dyche: We're Ready To Go Again

19 December 2014

Sean Dyche says his side will be ready to do business again this weekend as they look to build on their fine recent form.

The Clarets head to the capital having lost just one of their last six games in the Barclays Premier League.

And despite Tottenham Hotspur also going into the game with confidence, after a 4-0 win against Newcastle United in the Capital One Cup, Dyche insists it’s all about his side looking after themselves.

Dyche said: “It’s important we’re ready to do business from our point of view.

“I always speak about the awareness of opposition because you have to be, never more so than at this level of football.

“But it’s still all about what we do and how we go about our business first and foremost.

“They’re a very good side and it seems like their way of working is beginning to take effect after an up and down early season period.

“As I’ve suggested before, no game is a walk in the park in this division, there is not one in many but certainly not in this one.

“Every game is a big game and every game is important and there will be high expectation at their end I’m sure of that.

“Spurs playing Burnley at their place, I think it’ll be a big expectation for them to not only perform well but to win."

Having experienced a difficult start to the season despite some good performances, Burnley have grown into the division.

And Dyche is delighted with the way his sides unwavering belief in how they operate has now developed into putting points on the board.

He added: “The players will be ready for the weekend, mentally and physically the stats show they’re outstanding and they’re showing great signs of growth in the division.

“Tactically there have also been good signs as to how they’re operating.

“We’ve still got to keep that clinical edge up front and I spoke of making a better quality of chance early season and we’ve done that.

“People forget that in the first ten games we played seven of what was then the top ten.

“After ten games we had a stock take of where we’re at, what the stats were like and how we were performing. Then got a win which changes things slightly.

“I said last week after our win against Southampton that we’re going to have to fight for every inch.

“We’re going to have to find different ways of winning as well so let’s see how many we can get.”
