Gaffer Looks For Home Comforts

17 December 2015

Sean Dyche believes Turf Moor can bring home comforts this Christmas as the Clarets look top get the festive season off to a winning start.

The Clarets host Charlton Athletic at Turf Moor this weekend looking to nip a rare, six-game winless streak in the bud.

And with Bristol City and Ipswich Town also traveling north in the coming fortnight, Dyche aims to start another winning streak that will keep the Clarets right in the promotion mix.

He said: “We have had four away games in the last six and some tough ones. Equally, we’ve had some tough results and they are the challenges of the Championship.

“We know what it’s about, but some of the performances have been, I think, decent at least.

“But we’ve got to put our chances away and keep the back door locked and that’s really what it comes down to.

“Before that we had a great run of one defeat in 12 and now we have a change to right things again at home to Charlton.

“We’ve three of the next four at Turf Moor, so we are looking forward to that.”

Dyche, who has no injury worries ahead of the weekend, added: “There are some teams out there who have applied themselves well in the market and spent more than us, and we’re having a go!

“But after we play Hull over Christmas, we’ll have played five of the top seven away from home.

“They have to come back to the Turf, and we like playing there!”

Full Charlton preview from Sean Dyche and defender Michael Keane will appear here on Friday morning.
