Dyche: Spurs Display A Sign Of Progression

5 April 2015

Sean Dyche believes the performance against Tottenham Hotspur showed that there is absolute life in their battle to survive.

The Clarets boss saw his side edge the televised encounter against Mauricio Pochettino’s European chasing Spurs, but had to settle for a 0-0 draw at a sun-soaked Turf Moor.

And while he felt that they could have won it, Dyche was delighted with his side’s energy and the fact they have now kept two clean sheets in their last three Premier League matches.

He said: “I think it’s a good point. I thought we delivered a very good performance and a very solid performance.

“Enough to edge the game I felt. We had the best chances and kept them very quiet. You’re talking about a side who has spent a couple of hundred million pounds on their squad.

“I’m pleased with another clean sheet and while obviously we’re always hungry for three points, two clean sheets from the last three bodes well.

“There was a good framework to the team, good energy and endeavour to win a football match that will be vital as the games tick by.

“I don’t think it was a classic but we produced some good pockets on play and the pressing was excellent.

“The biggest sign there is, is that there is absolute life in what we’re doing here. Everyone can see that, everyone talks about it and that was on show again today.”

And the Clarets boss was quick to add that while his players were disappointed not to claim all three points,  that is a huge sign of their progression in the top-flight.

Dyche added: “That’s a sign of our progression that we’re weirdly disappointed to not beat Tottenham at home, with a clean sheet on Sky.

“That’s a sign of the belief we have in the group.

“The margins are tight, I mention it all the time and people are probably getting bored of it but it’s the truth and you saw it again today.

“I think that is one of those games in the Premier League where if we nick one, hopefully they don’t and we win the game.”
