Dyche: Stalemate Summed Up Our Season

16 May 2015

Sean Dyche felt the stalemate at home to Stoke was a game that summed up their season.

The Clarets created several good chances early in the game, but found Potters keeper Jack Butland in fine form.

And Dyche was again left to rue his side’s failure to take their chances.

He said: “It was probably a game that encapsulated our season. The players gave everything, regardless of last week when people might have been wondering if we had enough in our stomach to go hard again.

“We did everything but score a goal and unfortunately that has come around too many times this season.

“I feel like a broken record, because we created good chances but didn’t take them and we gave their keeper a chance to save them, rather than forcing him to make world class saves.”

Dyche and his players took to the Turf Moor pitch after full time to show their appreciation for the fans’ backing this season.

The Clarets boss added: “The fans have been terrific. There’s a lot of frustration in football and fans can react to situations in a very short pace of time.

“Ours haven’t. They have been strong throughout and resolute in their belief in the backing of the players.

“I can only say thank you so many times, but they know my words are authentic. That honesty resonates well with the people here and they have backed it.”
