Burnley boss aiming to keep up good results at Bolton
Sean Dyche is determined for his Burnley side to maintain their recent good form when they travel to the Reebok to face Bolton on Tuesday night.
Saturday’s Turf Moor victory over Millwall means the Clarets have now gone seven games without defeat in the Championship and can cement their second place with a victory at The Reebok.
And the Burnley boss is looking for the Clarets keep up the pressure at the top of the table with a victory against Wanderers, who find themselves nervously close to the drop zone.
Dyche said: “We are looking to build on our own good form and are raring to go.
“We have done our homework and are aware of the opposition, but it will come down to how well we perform and put our tactics into play.
“There is great energy to the side and a great belief which allows our quality to continue to deliver.”
Burnley’s last win at Bolton came in 1985, when the Clarets triumphed 3-1 over their Lancashire rivals.
However, Dyche insists that previous encounters with their Lancashire rivals will count for nothing when the two sides meet.
He said: “What is in the past can’t affect the future. We are a different animal this year.
“They had a good last 15 minutes against us last year, but I thought we had done enough to get something from the game.

“Bolton have their own challenges at the moment but are a good side with some really good individuals, a deep squad and a good young manager.
“But we don’t take anyone lightly and when the whistle blows we have to be ready as we have been all season.”
