Clarets Aim For Hat-Trick

11 September 2015

Sean Dyche hopes that a hat-trick of wins can provide the Clarets with a springboard to success.

Burnley host Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, following back-to-back victories against Brentford at home and on the road at Bristol City.

And with three of the next four games at home, the Clarets can steal a march on their Championship rivals.

He said: “We’ve had two important wins and I don’t want to over-egg it, but I think we are two points worse off because of things out of our control.

“That would make our situation even better, but we’ve had a couple of big results, and it’s always nice to get a win away from home, then to come back to our own fans and environment, so we’re looking forward to the game.

“We want our home form to be strong, as it historically it has been. Three out of the next four now being here bodes well in that respect.”

Dyche admitted he was still on the look-out to strengthen his squad, with the loan window now open, with central defence a priority.

He added: “If you look on paper and the map of a team, in a perfect world you would have eight defenders, eight midfielders and four strikers, with young players to supplement that.

“We are close to that thinking because a lot of hard work has been done.

“The only light area people might point to is the centre back position, where we haven’t got amazing depth.

“Kevin Long is on his way back, but we won’t rush him, then there’s young Tom Anderson and we know Ben Mee can play there, of course, so we have options.

“There’s been a lot of re-modelling on the pitch and it takes time for a team to format.

“There’s more to come though and we can continue to improve, but the solid shape and the energy has been very good.

“I just think there’s more to come in being productive in the attacking end of the field and ball possession.”
