Dyche: We Have The Belief

20 February 2014

Sean Dyche believes Clarets fans can play a huge part in Burnley’s upcoming run of big games.

Promotion-chasing Nottingham Forest arrive at fortress Turf Moor this Saturday, with third-placed Derby County following suit a week on Saturday.

The likes of Leeds United, league leaders Leicester City and local rivals Wigan Athletic are also all set to visit Burnley before the end of the season.

And Dyche insists the continuous support of the fans could make the difference as his team put their 11-month unbeaten home league run on the line again this weekend against Forest.

The Clarets boss said: “We are trying to enhance what we are doing and achieving as a group at the club. 

“We want to take that further and the fans can play a big part in that.

“I’ve been told we have the sixth highest away following in the league, which is incredible for a club of our size. 

“That is an achievement in itself from our fans and I am sure we will see even more of them at Turf Moor, particularly with some really big games coming up.

“We’ve made it a tough place for other teams to come. We want that to continue and never more so when the fans are there in numbers and behind us, as they have been all season.”

The gaffer feels that more than ever during his reign, there is now a real ‘one-club mentality’ at Turf Moor, with a crucial bond building between players, staff and supporters.

And the Clarets boss is adamant that has contributed greatly to Burnley’s exciting season.

He added: “I’ve mentioned it since my first day here and I think there is a connection. 

“The fans have come to understand and believe in the players, which is fantastic and we want to keep building it.

“When you align your fans with the players and what they are giving for the club, you can’t guarantee the outcome every time.

“What you can do, though, is show an attempt to win and I think most fans will take that as a marker.

“When you’ve got the Burnley shirt on, you demonstrate real energy and desire to win the football match.

“Then, hopefully, the quality of performance and goals will enable you to win that football match.”

Ahead of Saturday’s Turf Moor clash, Dyche confirmed he has a full squad available to pick from, with only Brian Stock a doubt (back).

Tickets for the game are as follows - 
Adults from £28 
Seniors from £17 
U 22’s from £15 
U 18’s from £8 

Tickets can be purchased online from, over the phone 0871 221 1914 or by calling in to the Turf Moor Ticket Office
