Dyche: We Can Keep Winning

3 November 2015

Sean Dyche insists his players can maintain their scintillating form following their ninth win in 12 games.

The Clarets moved ominously to joint top in the Championship as Andre Gray scored twice for the thirds successive home game and Matty Taylor grabbed a late third to see off Fulham.

And Dyche, whose side have now picked up 29 points in the last 36, believes his players have the mentality to keep their foot to the floor.

He said: “It’s not easy to win football matches and to win them as regularly as we are is even more difficult, so I am very pleased, especially when the game is not in our favour, that we can come through.

“We can win again you know. Sometimes people think you are due a loss, but you can keep winning and winning and winning and that’s the mentality we have.

“It doesn’t guarantee the next win, of course, but you know what I am suggesting.

“We don’t get wrapped up in the conjecture around us. We focus on what we do as a unit when that whistle blows.”

Gray’s brace followed a similar pattern following the home games against Bolton Wanderers and Huddersfield Town, as he struck twice to reward Burnley’s dominant first half display.

Ross McCormack pulled one back for the visitors early in the second half, and Burnley had to weather a fightback before Taylor struck another clinical goal in stoppage time.

Dyche added: “Overall, I was very pleased, particularly in the first half, when I thought we were outstanding.

“That’s the best we’ve played and we controlled the game tactically, technically, physically and mentally.

“It’s fair to say you can’t control a game for 95 minutes and they came at us in the second half.

“People will see that they had a good spell, but we did hit the bar, had one cleared off the line and Andre skimmed one over the bar, so let’s face it, very early in the second half they could have been dead and buried.

“Credit to Fulham though. They had nothing to lose and everything to gain and flooded players forward.

“They went back to front a bit quicker and we dealt well with that overall.

“It turned into a bit of a ding dong, but I didn’t feel that we were out of control and finally we scored a very good third with a deft finish and the game was done.”

He added: “Andre is becoming a very good player.

“He is absorbing what is around him and the way that we work. He is showing very strong signs at the moment, but I don’t single players out very often, but I thought David Jones’ supply line tonight was excellent.

“Alongside was Joey who worked tirelessly, as he does, and I could go through the whole team because there were so many good things about the side tonight.”
