Dyche: We're Two Teams Who Mean Business

21 November 2015

The gaffer looks forward to a super Sunday as Brighton visit Turf Moor

Sean Dyche is expecting an exciting spectacle this Sunday, as his Clarets side welcome joint league leaders Brighton and Hove Albion to Turf Moor.


With the Seagulls still the only unbeaten side in the top four tiers; a win for Dyche’s men would end this record, propelling the Clarets above their league rivals in the process.


The Clarets are currently enjoying a seven-game unbeaten run, with confidence high in the camp.

And Dyche predicts two sides going all-out to gain all three points in the battle of the division’s in-form teams.


He said: “For sure it’s two teams who quite obviously mean business in the early part of the season.”


“But everyone knows the belief we have in what we are doing and how we are playing, so it’ll make for a good game and a good occasion.”


Dyche added: “They’ve got good style and I like and respect Chris (Hughton) ughton) and Colin (Calderwood) a lot.


“They’ve got a good group there and maybe a few players there have gone under the radar.


“We know though from playing against them a number of times over the years that they’ve got good players and they are now looking well organised and ready to play.”


Only Solihull Moors in the top six tiers can match Brighton’s league record of no defeats in 16 league games.


Dyche however is undeterred by facts and figures, insisting that will count for nothing at Turf Moor.



“I’m not worried about Brighton’s unbeaten record. What’s gone in the past has happened, we are more focused on us and the future,” he added.


“Probably we have been enhanced by the squad we had the last time we were in the Championship.


“There’s a bigger demand because of the quality and the numbers that we have in the squad, but rather than just play the numbers game we have maintained a good quality.


“I think every week is a big week for us now because every game is a challenge.


“It’s not a given every week, so I think we need to prepare correctly and we will take on every challenge that is placed in front of us.”
